Random doodle of myself as a hideous Aka-name, having tea with some of my favorite Trash Packs.
Enjoying my monthly “vacation” at Nick’s dad’s. Just been lounging around, playing games and hanging out with friends. Going to make my fig jam, arugula, chicken & goat cheese paninis tomorrow for Jason, Carol, Nick, Nick’s dad and I :o)
Here are some of my works I chose to take tomorrow to a fancy coffee tasting/art showing/live music type thing that I was invited to. Upper-left was an Alice in Wonderland-themed commission that I altered a bit, the lion was recently re-painted from THIS older work from 2005, then there’s the teapot lady, which I made much less saturated (I’d painted it on my laptop originally, which has a very dull screen) and gave her a top (since I’m not sure cleavage would be fully appropriate). “KitschyMonster” was done in marker and is the only non-print item besides the tiny, framed Gromble on the bottom-left. The Eyeball in Space painting was done recently, and the seamonster lady is another slightly edited commission from a while ago that I always rather liked. I’ll probably also have a folder with some of my original sketches.OH, and it’s hard to see, but the ribbons have little coffee/tea cups on them! ;3;
I hope no one wants to buy these or commission me, since the idea of doing commission work locally is just… I don’t know. I’m probably not really built for that type of commission work, it’d probably put a lot of pressure on me. I’m just hoping to have fun and maybe talk to some people. Here’s hoping it won’t be too awkward and I won’t make a fool of myself! If I do, at least Nick and I will be leaving directly after to go across the state to visit his dad for a week, so I can run away and hope everyone forgets I exist. :D
A small, safe place in a troubling world. My sanctuary… like an oasis in a vast desert or an island in a stormy sea.
While I wish I could relax and enjoy a nice cup of spicy chai, there’s far too much to do… Wednesday is the big day… the movers will come to get all our stuff, and we’ll probably ride with my dad for half the trip, then ride with my mom for the other half. All our critters will be loaded up in the back with us (they’ll likely take up the whole back end of my mom’s SUV, even though they’re packed in smaller containers!) and I’ll be sure to keep KittyMonster up front with me so he can see all the sights along the way. He’ll finally see the place I’ve told him about so many times…
I won’t be online for a while after the 15th, will be too busy unpacking and showing my family around all the nice beaches. I can’t wait to visit all my favorite spots again and see Jonathan and meet all his friends. They sound so awesome from what he’s told me :o)
Now to peel my face away from all my favorite buggy sites and actually get back to helping my Squish with the packing!! I can’t wait to feel the weather get warmer and warmer as we go along on our 14-hour-journey… So much to do, so stressed, so excited adfklasdfjkl!!! AAADVENTURE!
