Why hello hello!
It’s been months. I know. Excuse this time — I was pushing off blogging until I had finished the piece I was working on. BUT I have finally come to terms with that not happening anytime soon. Sooo here are more progress shots. It has come a long way since January though hasn’t it?
Anyway, I kept thinking “I just need one more weekend… one more weekend…” But now that that’s out the window, it’ll be done when it’s done.
But really, I need to finish this thing. I’ve got ideas brewing and it’s difficult to move on.
In other news though, I did a flyer for a friend. I did the illustration and he did the text. Collaborations are lovely!
Right before I cut it out of my sketchbook

San Francisco has been quite lovely. I feel far from good friends and just far away from bits and pieces of my world, but I love how connected we all can still be. A friend told me about this children’s book he found at a Venice beach bookstore. He said it was about how every one is connected by an invisible string (I remember his hand gesture as he explained). He forgot the title and I have yet to find it. If you know what book I’m talking about, do tell! But anyway, what was my point… oh yeah, I just love that. It’s a bittersweet thing to miss people so dear.
Oh! Have I told you that I started reading The Picture of Dorian Gray? It is sooooo interesting.
“…every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself. The reason I will not exhibit this picture is that I am afraid that I have shown in it the secret of my own soul.”
Okay. Must get back to work. Have a lovely week!
