Oh crud, has it really been since November since I posted? I'm pleased to say that really fun things are keeping my interest: I've started a business painting custom kokeshi dolls (check it out on Facebook and/or Etsy) and it's kept me crazy and delightfully busy for the past two months. But! That doesn't stop me from putting pen to paper from time to time. I've got a great new project spinning wheels in my peanut butter head (as one may see above) and more on the way.
Also! Anthdrawlogy is up and running again! Stop by for a healthy dose of kaiju this month.
And how have YOU been, by the way? I've missed you. We never get to talk anymore.

I really AM drawing lately, it's just on top of a wooden doll and then covered with paint. Quibblies has gone 3D baby! Side note: my daughter says all these dolls have "elevator lips" and I have NO idea why. Anyone have a three year old translator handy? No? Aww.

So this last week, I started a new business venture: custom painted kokeshi and peg dolls! Kokeshi dolls are pretty ubiquitous here in Japan, but I found some blank ones to paint myself which turned out pretty good. I've got this and a handful of other dolls up in my etsy shop if you're so inclined to give a gander. It's also kind of late so I got a bit loopy in writing out product descriptions.
Anyways, there it is! Enjoy your face off.

While trying to find a story to read the kiddos tonight, I ran across a book of rhymes and illustrations I had done for a children's poetry class a few years back. There were 18 poems in all; these were my favorites (even if the owl one did need a bit of explaining to the three year old.)

No background yet, but I'll get up the guts to do it sooner or later. Also, this was done on a rather large piece of paper, hence the need to photograph it and not scan it. Colors were better, I swear! Maybe I should just start painting dull colors and hope they'll scan nice. Hmm. I see no flaw in that logic.

Anthdrawlogy is doing Portal this week!
My goodness, people, if you haven't played this game, you must. It's puzzle-y goodness with a really gripping story. I'm no gamer, but I like cake and it definitely promises oodles of that chocolately goodness.

So sometimes I take my notepad to church and sketch during Sunday School. Halfway through my bookish Chihiro here, Preston commandeered the page and drew...well, hopefully you can tell what he added.
When he asked if I liked it, I said, "I'm pretty sure you're going to hell."
Maybe I shouldn't take my notepad to church.
