It's Christmas already... at least it is in the world of illustration.
I always thought it's fun to be able to do seasonal illustrations off season.

So logically, there ought to be a run on springtime artwork coming up before too long. Though now that I think about it, I have already received half a dozen Holiday catalogs. And they have a lot of the Holiday stuff up in the stores too.

The weather is certainly cooperating, as I see it's snowing out East already.

Summertime is over...

It's easy to wax nostalgic over the passing of summer... as brief as it was. The buzzing of bees in the morning glories.

No more morning glories... or hot afternoons.

The cold of winter is going to take some getting used to. In fact it was only the middle of June when gloves, hats, scarves and coats were required.

Luckily my polartec is never far from reach...

Blogger's Block

It would seem that i have been preoccupied... and otherwise can't really think straight.

I think I've lost touch with my inner blogger. I've got blogger's block. It can be detrimental when one's mental state succumbs to indifference. I suspect it's all just a deep rooted biological need to hibernate.

Busy drawing, drawing and painting illustrations though... so maybe there's hope for me yet.

Drawing, Eating, Listening

Drawing : Working on the roughs to a new book. It's really more like puzzle solving than drawing, it's equally satisfying when all the puzzle pieces fall into place.

Eating: Just finished my standard lunchtime repast... vanilla yogurt with ground walnuts and strawberries and whole wheat toast with peanut butter. And a cup of tea.

Listening: To the pitter patter of raindrops...

Thinking: I ought to start hibernating...
