Mice Sneek Peek!

Been working away on my next chapter novel, and two others in the wing as well. Lots of work, but I couldn't be more pleased. I also managed to slice the dickens out of my thumb... you know, just to make things more challenging during deadline season. WEE!!!

Five Years!

It's a big day here at Did You Drink My Beer! It's the FIVE YEAR anniversay! Back in 2006, I decided to start sniveling away for the world to see. All joking aside, I think it's been a fun chronological experiment to see what's been going on these last few years: work, boozin', travel, teaching, love, marriage, animals, cakes, more work, books, and more books. Pretty exciting to still be here (albeit a few pounds heavier and into the thick of my thirties) and ready to continue on.


Ah, the innocence of youth...

If there was footage of me as a child... here it is:

Illustration Friday: Sweater

With a recent trend in ugly sweaters being cool, years of teasing could have been erased from my memory! I still really dig the horrible sweaters I had when I was a kid.

Ahoy! Another Painting Demo

Here's another painting demo from last semester. This one is on watercolor paper, with watercolors, some colored pencils and gamsol, and then some oils on top. Mixed media is one word for it! Then to bump up some of the dark, I monkeyed with it in the ol' p-shop. Finally got around to finishing it months after class.

I have no idea what it means.

Tough Day At The Office

Yup, caught sleeping on the job. Cats make THE WORST employees.

Actually, it's been fairly chilly in the ol' house, and I refuse to give National Grid all of my munmuns, so Mama found the warmest place she could.

MINDBLOWING!! GoogleArtProject Insanity

Ok, maybe I am the last person to check this out, but holy cow... GoogleArtProject is amazing, and I've blown the better par of an evening getting close to the world's treasures. Now, it's one thing to finally be in these museums, but being able to see the art THIS close is amazing. Art Project is an online compilation of high-resolution images of artworks from galleries worldwide, as well as a virtual tour of the galleries in which they are housed.

Check it out!
