Yesterday I did a bad thing. I went to the post office at quarter till 3. Big mistake. I know, because I've done it before. You see, when you get to the post office at that time you get stuck by a bajillion busses that are taking kids home from school. I counted yesterday. Twenty-eight. (side note: they all only had like 5 kids in them...didn't seem like the most economical way to bring kids home. Is this what my tax money is paying for?) Twenty eight busses all stopping at the tracks right outside the post office takes a long time. At least this time I had my sketch book with me.

A couple of things I've been doing:

I've been working with Jill Sobule on some animations for her site. The second one is not quite done, but it's looking pretty cool so far. I had to draw cars, too. I stink at drawing cars. But I think these turned out okay. I gave up on trying to make them perfect...Check it out!

Also Dress for Success Indianapolis chose me as their Woman Artist of the Year. So I get to do a painting for their big event called "Stepping Out in Style". The idea behind the painting is pumps and purses. I have my sketches done and approved. I can't wait to start this painting. It's gonna be great!

Colin and I covered Art vs. Art last weekend for Nuvo Newsweekly. It was an art competition where art was destroyed brutally if it was beaten out by another piece. It was a lot of fun. Lots of chaos. I did this illustration for it:

If you're in Indy, pick up a Nuvo and read Colin's article. It's awesome. He's a brilliant writer (and I'm not saying that because I married him...he just is.) Oh and check out my illo in print. If you are not in Indy, you should read it anyway. Click here!
