Focus Month: Presents

Now, we don’t really celebrate Christmas.  There’s a lot of reasons for that that don’t matter—and the way we tend to do it is more often than not on the Orthodox calendar—but we do give folks presents this time of year because I am utterly terrible at remembering birthdays. I’ve also moved to being someone who gets you something only if I can think of a thing, because we’re all grownups here and we all have a lot of junky shit we don’t need, so I’m not going to add…

Interestingly, both searches were for nail inspiration

I percentage of how I use the internet is based in finding that something is missing and adding it to the cloud, or whatever that’s being called now.  Things like the paper making photo set and the mini comic stand template were perfect for Flickr because they were information-based and easy to notate and download. I’ve been using Tumblr a lot lately, and you know what it’s good for? Screencaps. Recently I just gave up and capped the scenes RE: Sally Bowles’ nails that for some stupid reason still aren’t…

Month of changes, pretty much fin

It’s funny, comparing even a slice of what I once read on the internet to what I now check. I feel like I spend about the same amount of time on the computer, but I get less information.   Hivemined seems like it’s stuck at 81% and I’ve been prone to spam bursts on Tumblr, so that’s life now.  I can’t tell if I’m getting more done in general or not yet, it’s been so transition-y lately.  

Ch-ch-changes focus month: gettin’ there

So, my sister’s new room is pretty much ready to go.  It was a lot easier than I expected, especially considering how cluttered it was up there. But now it is ready to be moved in (once the air mattress is inflated). I’ve even hung some fabric up so I can work in my craft area without being up in her space. As for bookmarks, I’ve cleaned that shit right out.  There were bookmarks that I’d made to remind myself to respond to a post from 2009. Gah. It’s much…

Illustration focus, progress 4

Busy, shoulder issues and a bit of a cold have hung me up a bit, but I’ve got the last illustrations for Primp and one for In Search for the King to share!  Both let me play in InDesign and learn about wrapping text. And both laid out really well, Primp is a perfect three pages with both the header and spot illustrations and In Search turned out precisely one page. Continuing the paper cut out style I wanted for Primp, I made two figures, referencing from my hilarious 1979…
