Still Breathin'!

I've been busy plugging away on my submission for the 2012 Sketchbook Project. I've managed to get a good start on 28 pages. This is just the first layer of one page you're getting a sneek peek of here. Since I took this photo, I've done a ton more work on all the pages. They've evolved quickly and for the most part, easily. It's been fun pulling bits of art from the past and combining it with new art and self portraits I've taken since the beginning of the year. I'm really loving how it's all coming together.

My friend Tina sent me a cd just before the postal strike and it's been the soundtrack of my work so far, in addition to a few songs recently downloaded from iTunes. Music is the heartbeat of my studio-no music, no creativity!

Other than that, I've been quiet this week because I'm not feeling very good. I think the sinus infection I had for half of April and all of May is trying to make a comeback. I've been couch surfing with Indy curled up at my feet, sipping tea and trying to will myself well. I have plans for the weekend that don't include a sinus migraine or lying in bed all day. I swear, if I stayed in bed every time I felt horrible, I'd never get anything done. I am the queen of powering through by sheer force of will, though I have to say, it's gettin' old, real fast!

Back soon with more sketchbook progress and perhaps some fresh photos taken with my shiney new Rebel! (Speaking of which, there's only one week left till Light Hunters begins. I cannot wait! I know it's going to be fa-bu-lous!)
