I haven't been drawing a lot, but I got in the mood a few weeks ago when the staff at work were doing inventory and I couln't be there hahaha. I did this very quickly, but a lot of people saw it and I ended up getting a few commissions out of the deal! That should be enough to get me back into the swing of things. I've really missed sitting down and drawing for myself!

As I head into my 7th season in the tree planting world (this time as a cook and NOT a planter), I am getting quite anxious. Before the season starts, there are always mixed feelings of excitement and dread. You're always excited to see old friends and meet new ones (although by this time, all of my 'cool' friends from the beginning are gone and are now replaced by fairly immature 19 year olds who insist on wearing makeup on days off and blow drying their hair in the mess tent), and you are always remembering all of the reasons why you swore you would never come back for another season. so. Here I am. Going out for the last time. Seriously. This was a little something that I put together for our big big boss. I call it "A Planter's Season in 3 parts".

It blows my mind how dull my scanner can make things look at times. Oh well! I am dangerously close to replacing my entire scanning/printing unit to something that really works!
This is just a little something I am working on. A few places in town have asked me to sell some stuff at their stores, so I am just trying to be a bit diverse!

I'm doing this personal project on ugly mermaids. I swear I am not doing this mermaid thing on purpose! I've never really drawn them until the last few years.
"Agatha doesn't have very much hair..."
"Dorris kind of looks like an elephant seal..."
"Cynthia wants to fall in love..."
"Maybelle has a terrible voice..."
I made a short poem of around 28 lines about these ugly mermaids. Mermaids are supposed to be beautiful, and these ones are not!

Here are some things I have been working on (a little bit). I was feeling in a bit of a creative rut for a while so I quit this book thing and started doing some watercolour images for another book idea. I haven't scanned them in yet but MAN!! Watercolour is so much fun.
Hope everyone had some great holidays!
