Where I've Been

Mostly finishing off drawings from another Book Dash (that's the cover drawing). Before that a whole week of not quite feeling like myself, as if my brain had been replaced by a bunch of evil monkeys, all pulling strings and jabbering away, flinging banana peels and banging the bars of their cages. Sometimes that happens.

Back to the Book Dash: I'm determined to keep doing these things until I actually do finish a book in one day. The organiser described it as a marathon, and like a marathon, you can't just pitch up and run. You need to train and be fit. It's becoming more and more obvious that I really do need to draw every day.

Just not sure where to fit that in. Last week the evil monkeys made me stay up after bedtime inking two pages, which was great, but likely not an ideal long-term strategy.

Dead simple. Dead and simple?

Summer's coming, and with it nasty buzzing things. Frighten the flies away with this impressive tally of confirmed kills.

(Now in my Etsy shop.)

I haven't made these for about four years; they were a bit of a hard sell (some people thought they might be tea cosies - maybe?) and I couldn't find a good washable interfacing. But now that everyone knows what they are, I've re-jigged the shape so that I can print my tiled patterns on them, and made them sturdier than before with a canvas interfacing.

They'll be in the shop soon!
