Perverse and Rebellious

"The tighter a deadline is, the more I'm inclined to be perverse and rebellious – I'll start thinking about another, different project, until it becomes the most fantastic thing which I must start immediately."
~ Errollyn Wallen, composer

This quote pretty much sums up my art-life in recent weeks.  It's so hard to quiet the little part of me that wants to flit madly from fun art contest to new Christmas craft project to time-consuming-thing-of-the-day.  Must focus! 

Things that I'm lovin' right now (read: Prime Distractions):
  • Jan Brett's book The Twelve Days of Christmas, with its gorgeous illustrations (seriously, they're amazing.)
  • Egg nog.  'Nuff said.
  • Handel's "Messiah" -- so good.
  • Dreamworks' Kung Fu Panda... can't wait for the sequel!
  • Christmas ornaments; come Dec. 26, gonna hit up those sales!!!

This week's Illustration Friday theme: "prehistoric".  Here we have a quick illustration of a time before our history, on a far-distant planet.  "By Grabthar's hammer, by the Sons of Warvan, you shall be avenged!" [name that movie!]



My Little Fox shirt, "Rake Break", won second place in Shirt.Woot's "Double-Take" Derby!  It looks like it won't be available much longer; buy now!!!  (Click the ad on the right  Sorry, no longer available)



I recently took on my first international commission, designing a bubble gun tattoo for a very nice lady in Spain(!) 



Last week's sketch for Illustration Friday -- "Savor".
