I was able to get to bed at 10pm last night and I finally got a good night's sleep. I woke up feeling a little bit better (hope!). And then I made the decision to take today for myself...No client work. No deadlines. No stress. Instead I took a long, hot shower and made some tea with way too much honey. I started to feel even better so I decided to make a little illustration for myself (mainly because I thought I could do a better job with "fragile" than the orange-haired girl below).

Since then I've just been laying on the couch putting together a little sumpin' sumpin' for you.

A lot of people have asked about my process. So I put together a little how-to page, walking you through the steps I go through to create an illustration. Click here to see it.

A little addition: Singer/songwriter Jill Sobule recently recorded a new album and wanted to highlight two of the songs on her website. She hired me to do two illustrations for these songs, and I worked with her wonderful web-programmer to animate them and make them interactive. Only one is done so far, but you can check it out now. (HINT: Rollover the various objects in the illustration...) I'll post the second one when it's done as well.

Check it out!
