I'm still working on art for my next show so I figure I should make some big work to hang. I did sell one already but I told them they can't have it until May...fun times.

Honestly? Hmmmmm..... i would think it was my drawing apps I use as a note pad when I am away from my sketchbooks but it is truthfully my podcast app. I use it to much and it gives me so much knowledge and perspective. It has made me laugh and made me cry my eyes out. I fill up my phone memory listening to podcasts...

So the homework on this snowy week is a fun one. You start and story and then people who follow your page add to the mess. I like it!

I don't really wear caps so i figured this was a better use.

I'm thinking of doing a wordless comic book about this guy. Just narration.

I'm doing all my commissions but I am starting to hate them. It is such a stupid problem to cry about. It is just a bit over welling being busy. I don't know how I got so much traffic. All I did way post my work and make a few prints and now as soon as this snow gets plowed out of the...

Is part of it the fear that commissions threaten freedom?  I've never enjoyed the pressure of doing something to someone else' expectations as much as I have enjoyed just doing my own thing.  It was why I turned away from going more professionally into photography.

@glass42 you always get me so well 

We knew the snow was going to shut down the city. So we grabbed food and water and each other all pervy like. :)

we are dorks...but it makes us happy.

I have some great memories from being snowed in.  How are things going now?  More on the way?

I hear more on the way. It is really fun. She is watching anime as I walk in and out of my studio working on paintings. It's been a lot of fun playing in the snow with Alec.
