I’m working on a story idea, and I met some monsters along the way. These monsters didn’t work for the story, but I really liked them, and invited them to come back for another story. And if not, hopefully they’ll stop by for tea and cake at least.
Some updates regarding this site and social media:
I quit Facebook this summer. The last straw for me was discovering some of their policies that protected users who engaged in racist and aggressive behaviors towards other users. I still like you very much, I just don’t like facebook. Leaving was a good choice for me, and I thank you for your understanding and compassion.
I’ll be utilizing this blog more often to communicate events, announcements and sharing my process with you. This is a great time to communicate your preferences to how often you would like to read new posts 🙂
During the month of May, a lot of artists participate in a drawing exercise called MerMay, and they draw a lot of mermaids throughout the month. How many of you wanted to be a mermaid, swimming along in the oceans and talking to fish all day about seaweed?
Uh. It sounded more magical when I was a kid 🙂
“This is not what I meant when I said a wanted to be a mermaid!”
Well, I made the plunge and decided to sell stuff on Redbubble. I like their site and everything I’ve ordered from them has been pretty nice. Society 6 became really difficult to navigate, and I like the ease of setting up items on Redbubble.
There’s more than just t shirts at Redbubble, so I hope you’ll check it out. You can also let me know in the comments here if you are like “Hey, I’d love to buy something with “_______”on it! And I’ll be like “I DECIDE STUFF AROUND HERE!” And probably make it anyway, because I really care about you 🙂
I’ve been working on trying out some different shapes, and tweaking the process a little bit. Mainly in trusting myself more and not overworking everything. This is a sketch, but it was an important one to me. 🙂
Sometimes I feel sad, like there’s a hole that can’t be filled.
But then someone from my family and friends shows me kindness, love, and compassion and it’s like a light. And even though I still have a hole, I have my own light of compassion to share. And no matter how many times that compassion is shared, it doesn’t seem to diminish, but grow. So I did some sketches, and I wanted to share them with you. Have a nice weekend. 🙂
I am excited to be home after attending the super awesome Winter SCBWI Conference in NYC this year. Gosh, that’s a mouthful. I’ll probably get around to talking about the conference more, but right now I’m really excited to get back to work, and taming my to-do list. 🙂
