Yesterday’s post was about coping with chaos, so it seems fitting to follow up today with the benefits of orderliness. I am a creative soul, and we’re not known as neatniks for a reason, I’ve discovered. I’m not fond of stereotypes, but it seems there’s no escaping this one! Or is there? Ofttimes the clutter… Read More A Sense of Order
I occasionally post an image of my artwork on facebook, and people surprise me with the ideas they pull out of the art. So this is a place where you could come, look, and possibly find the spark of a tale. All of these pieces were created using Mandelbulb 3D version 1.8, with… Read More Visual Story Prompts
I’ve always found something strangely fascinating about those blackboards or whiteboards with huge incomprehensible equations scrawled across them… But I have to face that although I passed calculus, it was by the skin of my teeth. I can catch glimpses of the beautiful, elegant thing that math is, like looking through curtains out into a… Read More Math is Art
I’ve been doing Inktober this year. I can’t manage it every day, some days are just so busy that I can’t even sketch a quick doodle. Others, like yesterday, let me fill pages. One of the things I’ve discovered and am having fun with, is that my kids appreciate my art. My Otaku Princess requested… Read More The Ink Life
I made a comment on facebook the other day about how much fieldwork I have in classes this semester, and a week ago tomorrow I took a long ramble in the woods armed with camera and neck-knife, collecting specimens… and it was homework! One of my friends commented, laughing “don’t throw me into that br’er… Read More In the Briars
I’m not dead. I’m here, just busier than I’d anticipated as the tectonic plates of my world are shifting. This isn’t a bad thing, but it does presage a time of upheaval and change. I don’t know yet what the new terrain and continents will look like. Sort of exciting to think about that –… Read More Quick Update:
I will be at the Indiana ComicCon this coming weekend, the end of the month. You’ll be able to find me in Booth 606 in the exhibitor’s hall, where I will be booth babe for Mystik Waboose, purveyors of fine geek apparel. T-shirts to show your fandom to the world, labcoats for the mad scientists, they… Read More Indiana ComicCon
A month later than my latest projection, the coloring book is now available for purchase. It’s been quite the adventure, bringing this project to completion. I’ll blog the whole saga in a couple of weeks, but right now I’m just holding it and cooing over it a little. Ok, maybe not. But it’s cool! I… Read More Inktail is Here!
As I continue my year of creating art daily, I decided I’d put some of it here. For convenience’ sake, I’ve been posting them to a facebook album. It’s easy, quick, and most days it’s all I have energy for.
Good Morning! Well, it’s morning where I am. And there’s sunshine, so that’s good. I’m headed out to a gig shortly, so this is just a round-up of what’s on my desk and tabs for the day. First! Big News! LOL… I have ordered proof copies of Inktail & Friends. They will arrive here in… Read More Gleanings from the Desk
My Spring Break has started – started yesterday afternoon, actually. I’m at Millennicon this weekend, and I hung my first pieces in my first Art Show. I don’t have pictures, you’re not allowed to take photos in the art show. I can tell you I have already learned one lesson – one 3×4′ panel is… Read More Art and Amusements
Selling Art I know there are not a lot of us who are working at art and writing. I probably wouldn’t have gotten into it, the art is sort of my sanity valve when school gets intense, except… I kept getting asked to sell pieces, print, coffee mugs (looks hard at a certain person). So… Read More Selling Art Merchandise
