I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! We had quite an interesting Thanksgiving morning preparing the turkey.... well... I will let you see for yourselves: Yeah that's my mom and Eric hair drying our turkey. It's hair was just not voluminous enough. No but for realz, our turkey lurkey wasn't thawed the whole way and… Continue reading Complementary Colors
You know when you have a thousand projects that you want to get accomplished by a certain date? Yeah, that's what I am going through riiiiiight now. As of yesterday I crossed something off my to do list- I finished some new classroom friends... I call them: COLOR BUDDIES! These puppets are intended to be… Continue reading Color Buddies!
And two days later here we are again. Lots going on. Lots. No wait no. The opposite of lots. What I do have to share are a few pieces that I have in progress. I'm working at a lot smaller of a scale this week so I was actually able to design and cut this… Continue reading Fire gone
This week I've been trying to learn how to ink with brushes. The results have been questionable, but I still thought I would share. To get to the finished product though I started with a little draft. So what if it's on the outside of an insurance bill. Paper is paper. After that I… Continue reading Brushes

I've spent a majority of my time this past week working on patching a settling crack in our ceiling. Bending over backwards while facing upwards has left me a bit not terribly interested in drawing or making much of anything, but that won't stop our little painter. Her frothing demand for Sarah & Duck related… Continue reading A green tiger
I did it again! I made another video. Remember the last one? This one isn't a song though so you will miss out on my wonderful singing skills. Sorry. This video was much harder to film, but it tackles a very important subject in my classroom: stinky attitudes. Or, "atti-toots" cuz they stink up my… Continue reading Atti-TOOT-ers
This week I'm reviewing a few of the cuts that I've made over the past few months. Seeing still images of them doesn't quite get across the way that they look in person. To try and remedy this I've done a few short videos and converted them to GIFs for fast consumption. While setup, filming… Continue reading Some different views
