The Flea Circus

Well they've taken over. The fleas, that is. Something about this year's summer, but I've heard the fleas are assembling in an aggresive manner to take over the world and no one is safe. Lou's blaming me because I feed all the stray cats outside. Maybe. But I'm not confessing to anything without my lawyer. Either way this is really hindering my crafting. I've been a cleaning fiend all week.

My summer sale is still going strong. I'm not sure how long I'll hold it for. Can't very well have a "summer sale" in September right? Ah yes...I'll call it a back-to-school sale. Marketing genius.

A few days ago my paper samples came in the mail and it was like Christmas! I wanted to research which type of paper I thought would be best for some art prints I'm making. I ordered a small sampling of some Hahnemuhle sheets. The canvas paper is so nice and smooth and bendy! And the photorag is so silky. Now I can't decide which looks best. ah well.

Am I the only one that loves/knows of the videogame Katamari Damacy? If you haven't heard of it, I highly recommend it. There's a few sequels out also. It's colorful and fun and totally wacked out.
This is just one of my illustration interpretations of a character in the game that I'm working on.

What a great character! Do they look like that or did you come up with that all by yourself? Your style is really developing.

You have to feed the strays. You care.
