So busy lately!

Hey remember when I said I was going to use my lack of job as an opportunity to blog more? Wellll that didn’t happen because I had a week off where I impulse decided to foster an extremely cute puppy, and then immediately started a new job! I don’t really know how to relax, but I’m also frustrated with myself because I’m supposed to be taking this time to work on my art!

Here is some of the work I’ve been up to lately!


I’m planning a Halloween party! I designed and illustrated this super cute invitation for it, and Rob wrote the beautiful poem. Anyone want to come??


I FINALLY finished my painting, to enter a few shows. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out! It’s so funny how I basically got to the “almost finished” part and then promptly stopped for weeks, and then when I went to finish it, it took only about two hours. Gah! I should just finish things more quickly. It’s funny how we psych ourselves out.


Finally, I’m working hard on helping out my friend with another popup art mall. This one is going to be big, and it’s going to be excellent. I can’t wait, honestly. Instead of just having stickers in this one, I’ll have my whole space, so I’m starting to plan out my stock – I’ll make a post on this later on when it’s closer, but so far I have prints, tote bags, notebooks, postcards, stickers, original art, and painted jackets planned!

What are you working on lately? How are things going? What are you most looking forward to?

  1. Aw I love your line drawing on your Halloween invite. Your painting looks spectacular as well. I’m really loving that blue colour.

    And I know what you mean about finishing something quickly when it’s nearly finished… I was working on a WordPress theme commission recently, and I knew I only had a couple of hours to finish, but I just didn’t feel motivated enough to pick up the damn thing and finish it off. I had been holding off the ‘end’ for weeks, too. I think it happens when we keep putting something off because we know it won’t take long and we can do it any time, but the time passes much faster than we realise.

    At the moment I am working on cleaning my wardrobe and getting rid of clothes I don’t wear! I just bought some new clothes as well… gah, it was so hard to resist. 😦 But now that I’ve bought them, I need to get rid of more clothes. 😛

  2. Aw, you fostered a puppy? Did you take any photos of the cutie? And yay for the new job? I guess you like to stay busy. I can definitely see that from what have accomplished as of lately ^^

    The invitation looks great! And I love the poem Rob wrote 😀 The painting is gorgeous! You really did a fantastic job on it. I really love how the details you put into each and every flower! I wish you luck with the popup art mall! I only wish I could be there to see your shop in person!

    As for me, I’m just working and am re-learning Japanese 🙂 I am also looking forward to another four-day weekend next week!
