The Man Who Was Thursday

 
I'm in the middle of The Man Who Was Thursday at the moment and couldn't resist a quick sketch of Lucian Gregory and Professor de Worms (shudder).

Highways and Byways

 
 
 

The view from these parts and the spaces in between. Things are green, growing and good.

Assorted Things:

* I've been taking an etching class Monday nights at Chases's Garage and just finished up this week. I absolutely loved the course and the instructor was terrific. Stepping aside from a computer monitor and getting inky hands was just what the doctor ordered. Also, running prints is a major bicep workout. Win-win!

* Ne Quittez Pas is well-worth the watch.

* The library at Phillips Exeter is 110% a good idea for a visit.

The Mushroom Gatherers


Something from earlier in the spring, back when green, growing things seemed as farfetched as mushroom gathering maidens.

Cream + Sugar

 

It's Friday (insert: flinging of imaginary confetti)! Hope your week was swell. I made this pattern eons ago (for a Spoonflower challenge) and forgot about it until I was rifling through files this afternoon. Speaking of which, some French Press sounds splendid about now...

Happy weekends!

Alfred

 

The comic project my sister, Emily, and I have been collaborating on is ready to go. We're excited to share Alfred -- we've had a blast working on this and hope you like it, too. You can read weekly updates every Monday over here.

The back story? Over the holidays a coffeeshop conversation ended up evolving into Emily's idea for a comic. Many months, several late nights and a couple weekends later, we're ready to go. Alfred is equal parts sci-fi, fantasy and mystery, with a healthy dose of Maine thrown in. And let's not forget, lots and lots of salt water.

Enjoy!

Gathering


It's Friday -- jazz hands!

And I've just finished restocking my Etsy shop -- there's a few new prints over there, including this woodland maid.

Happy Weekend!

The Lonestar State



I made a whirlwind trip down to Texas the other weekend to visit family. It was the perfect antidote to the most brutal winter I can remember.

  
Needless to say, my camera is filled to capacity with pictures of flora, fauna, nieces and nephew. And all I want to draw are succulents and cacti (ergo, the pattern at the top of this post).

Thanks for the creative shot in the arm, Lone Star State. I owe you one.
