Back in the early days of my illustrating, I thoroughly enjoyed participating weekly in Illustration Friday (back then founded by illustrator Penelope Dullaghan). Life got a bit hectic as I had babies and spent more time momming than drawing. Through the years my girls and I would often create art together. Usually it was unstructured and freeform and really lots of fun. As they’re growing into full-fledged almost-not-children-anymore, we’ve each gone along our independent paths of creativity, often in our own time and space. But today a Facebook post reminded me that Illustration Friday is still out there, so I sat down and looked at IF again and decided we should all participate together. Our first entry is over at a blog I’ll be dedicating to our artwork together. Swing by for a visit!
It’s been a little over a decade in the making, but I finally updated the home website. I’d love any feedback you might have. Swing by and have a gander!
I love autumn. The other morning while I was walking the dog I was noticing the great acorns all around the ground and just loving how jaunty the caps looked upon them. So I came home and created a little family of acorns and then popped them into my Zazzle Shop. Swing by for some nutty swag!
The end of school year crazies have been upon us the last few months with lots of celebrations of all sorts going on. I don’t know how folks with more than two kids juggle the different schedules so well (i know of several friends with four kids in three different schools who handle it with such cool that i really have no legs to stand on when complaining about just two school schedules to tend to)! We are just about to close out the school year, as the final week of school is this week. So, I am hoping we get a bit of a breather in between travels and the various sports and activities of summer…until then, keeping going with Dory’s motto: just keep swimming, just keep swimming (and doodling when possible)!
Just a quick note to wish everyone a very warm and wonderful Thanksgiving. Feeling all kinds of lucky over here; hope you all do too.
Really, I will be posting things other than DrawSome doodles someday. But currently our new house is being redecorated (by us…ridiculous amounts of ugly wallpaper and poor paint choices to undo) and we have to scoot our year+ worth of townhouse-living out of our rental and into the new house within the next several weeks. We are busy (and fighting summer colds, all four of us!)!! I’m usually too beat to play Draw Something (one of my favorite ways to unwind at the end of a day) more than once or twice a week lately. Meh.
