I started this entry months ago when I thought dealing with a pandemic, depression, and the death of my cat was all I had to deal with. Hah. Good times.
All that aside. I’ve sure been playing a lot of Animal Crossing. Between crocheting, insomnia, listening to conspiracy theory podcasts and taking my anti anxiety meds like candy.
Not the most useful existence right now, but it’s what I got these days. At least I managed to make a somewhat acceptable baby blanket. Hopefully someone finds that useful. Or at least appreciate the amount of crazy slip knots involved in making a whole blanket.
Alas the last thing I’ve been doing is Art. Or Drawing. Or Writing. Back when this post was started – and we were all starting to settle into quarantine that was a big deal. And for me is still a bit of a guilty weight on me.
All that free time, no interruptions, nothing better to do, all that prime suffering. (All Artists Must Suffer After All) Why am I not a whirlwind of creativity making new series of prints, wrapping up that long form fanfic, and creating the great American Novel while I’m at it?
I have TIME why am I not making THINGS? Why aren’t others making many things? Why are we not experiencing some sort of Plague Born Renaissance of new media? Continue reading →
The year is slowing grinding to a close, I figured I should get this posted before anyhting horrible happened and I got distracted from posting it. Seems this year I did alot of religious icons, a lot of budgies and pokemon. An odd mix but hey no energy is wasted.
Anyways here’s hoping 2020 is a brighter future (its not likely but we gotta have some optimism damnit.)
sold directly out of my stock. Everything that comes out of the etsy has been handled and selected by me. If you want something signed this is the way to get it.
Larger stock dating back years of work and designs on a wide variety of items – want a t-shirt? a coffee mug? Redbubble has it. For this weekend use the code “CYBERDEALS” to get 25-60% off your order
Shirts – curtains – tote bags- fine home decor – Society6 has it for ya.
Just set this place up but if oyu want archival – giclee prints for the more distinguishing connoisseur Inprnt’s the place to go. The weekend all orders of $50 or mre gets free international shipping.
Not sure what I’m doing just yet – got a concept or two I might sketch – might also paint on dear old Sebastian here. What I can promise is music and probably live mic and swearing. Cause why the fuck not.
I’m sitting on a few ideas for the next serious post. But right now I figured I’d post this as a reassurance the next big piece on my docket is not going to be anywhere near as bloody, morbid or heavy as Saint Agatha.
I decided I wanted to play with color, I like 60s aesthetics, travel posters, and heists. So I’m gonna try my hand at some Lupin. The Third. Not the LeBlanc one.
I have a lot of research for this piece – cause I have an idea in my head of what I want but its not quite clicking so I keep hoarding images in hopes something will help fill in the blanks.
(I started this in January and took too long on it. But apparently the feast of St Agatha is this week so lets pretend I planned this. )
Okay – so the New Year has arrived – and is in fact – still here. I’m not one for New Year Resolutions – but I do tend to make the New Year an occasion for me to examine what I’m doing and how to improve it. With this in mind I should be working on social media and how to make my online presence a thing that exists. But I hate social media and am avoiding working on it so lets talk about Saint Iconography with a side note of women’s roles in history.
Warning – this will probably get a bit gory and rough. Because – history is rarely clean and pleasant. Also politics of now gets briefly mentioned. Continue reading →
So 2018 hunh? Been a bit of a rough ride. I mentally don’t take milestones well and this one was a bit of a painful one for me. But time waits for no one – no matter how many blankets they hide under. So onwards we go.
It’s been a year of bad news it seems. Personal and political. For a while I was dreading answering the telephone or logging online for fear of what I’d see.
I also started therapy which seems to have helped a bit. And most importantly, I finally managed to make a Krampus card this holiday my own parents were happy to share with relatives. Miracles happen even in dark times.
I sadly confess I have a few drafts I was intending to finish up and post here but I got caught up in life. I’ll probably try to finish them up and queue them for more appropriate seasons. Energy is never lost – just goes else where and all that.
But yea – 2018 – good effing riddance. Here’s hoping we can make 2019 a bit kinder.
