Hooray! New business cards! I ordered them from and I love them so much I'm having a hard time giving them away. You can customize these minicards with your own designs or choose from one of their designs and they have these little pocket sized minicard cases, too, that I may have accidentally also purchased. Like the kind of accidental that's not accidental at all, but more like deliberately adding something to your cart because you were offered a slight discount and you're a sucker for cute things in clever packaging.

Family portrait

I was recently asked to do a drawing for the lovely and talented Kara of Purple Door Photography and it was honestly one of the most fun projects I've ever worked on. Also, when I got the resource photos, I was surprised to find how photogenic her entire family is. I'm not sure that one family should be hogging all the attractive people. It's not fair to the others.

Urban sketching at the park

I'm a member of a local urban sketching group and today's outing landed me at a playground. I had grand ideas of hanging around longer to also get in a couple of other climbing thingys, some trees, and these geese behind me that were honkhonkhonking the whole time I was there. But it was pretty chilly out and I was NOT dressed appropriately (mom: you were right, happy mother's day), so I hightailed it back to my warm car after drawing just the slide.
