...eyeballing the calendar, the mostly-complete tootsie monster on my desk, the pile of yarn that is to be my 3rd and final piece for the mortal plush submission...
it's already 2:30pm, i just can't get anything done.
how the heck did i get food poisoning for the second time this year.
i wanna finish this stuff but every last bone in the body hurts. ug.

item #2 for mortal plush application - "Believe" (emotion: hopeful)

(sorry I took a milllllion photos)

she's a good listener...


it's getting wierd in here.

so, dude. first prize winner for most difficult thing to photograph ever. also, i think this conveys 'hopeful' ok... but i get nervous about these things because my creatures dont really have um faces to express emotion...?

like 'wonder', she'll be for sale later this year.

i need a beer.

hey kids

if you get a minute and got $5, please head over to schmancy and pick up a little something. this store and its owner have done a lot for the plush art world and community, and needs a little lovin' support right now. they've got gorgeous high-end stuff too, or a simple $3 keychain. love love love. and they're nice enough to select yours truly for my very first plush show later this year. STOKED.

i made horns for joey.
because he's going to a fancy dress party this weekend. wool felt + yarn = woot.

that's all. xoxox

i keep getting sad recorded messages from the art league saying they need people to come in for figure drawing workshops or they'll have to stop offering them. i really miss going, that was the best friday night you could have around here. and i been really itchy to draw, i miss doing portraits a lot. i'm hoping to doodle and draw the heck out of switzerland. until then, back to the needle and thread. slowly coming to terms with the fact that there's only so many hours in the day.
