Well, I haven’t posted in an incredibly long time. I’ve had my reasons, I promise. This past summer was a whirlwind for me and with my 27th birthday arrived an explosive return of Saturn which has left me in a state of reflection and rebuilding since July. Unfortunately, this blog was very low on my list of priorities for the past few months, but never did I completely forget about it. Now, thankfully, ever since November i’ve finally started to find some clarity and balance. In the last few weeks I’ve rediscovered my passion for arts and crafts with a violent ferocity that cannot be held back. Now that i’ve had a few weeks of filling sketchbooks, making Christmas decorations, wood-burning everything wooden that I can get my hands on, editing 2 year old film projects, and some good old-fashioned painting, I’m finally yearning to get back to this blog.
So, for right now, I just wanted to say “hi” and “I’m still alive” and “I can’t wait to blog again” and I will leave you with a sample of my recent work. A few weeks ago, a friend and coworker of mine commissioned some art from me. She wanted something for her holiday cards that she would be delivering alongside all her beautiful, handmade knitted gifts. All she asked for was a little bear and a little fox, as “Bear” and “Fox” is what she affectionately calls her two little boys. Here is what I came up with for her.
My sister helped me print these on some 4×6 card stock and we fell in love with the way they came out. I also got a lot of positive feedback from my friend, and others who saw the cards. With that in mind, my sister and I have projects and potential prints and stationary for sale coming up in the new year. I won’t give away too much, but i’m excited.
More projects, crafts, pictures and nonsense coming soon.
thanks for reading!
