Under the Sea


Another quick post today, boys and girls -- just wanted to spread the word about "Ripple".  Here's how it works:

Each sketchcard on [Ripple] is $10.00. The $10.00 is a donation to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill. Every penny is donated. The two Non-Profits that are benefitting are The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center. You can purchase a card if you donate directly to one of the non-profits and email the confirmation and your address to [Kelly Light at] ripplesketches@verizon.net. The artist will mail you the signed card. 

Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.  You donate $10 to a charity, tell Kelly which artwork you'd like, and you get a cool piece of art, such as my "Manatee" seen above, in the mail! 

If you know anyone who'd like to get in on this great project, send 'em on over to Ripple.  Every little bit helps!

Insomnia

"In the wee small hours of the morning
While the whole wide world is fast asleep
You lie awake and think about the boy
And never ever think of counting sheep..."

~"In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning", as sung by Carly Simon


Funny how it throws you all outta whack when your other half's away...  but, you might as well post if the whole sleep thing's not working out.  Plus, over in the right-hand column, you'll see there's now a link that says "Portfolio", which will take you to my new and improved portfolio blog -- huzzah!

Oh, and I need to send out a huge 'thank-you!' to everyone who voted for my swimsuit design!!! With your help, my "Mesa Rose" design finished in the top 100 (out of 1,880 designs)! Thanks so much, everybody!

Re-worked my "Computer Girl" a bit -- hopefully her skin tones have improved.
