Agh! I'm here... I know I've been missing from this little space. I even missed a monthly goals check in! Yikes.
Well, I made it home from Seattle-- which I loved. It oddly, felt very much like New England. Perhaps the wood framed buildings? The scale of the city?-- as my dad would say. Definitely the pretty gray weather. It was funny how cozy and familiar it all felt until I'd look down a street, or out a window, and think "Goodness, those clouds are so dark!" And then I realize, "Ohhh those are mountains." Humongous, serious, mountains. Which we definitely do not have on this coast. And then I'd feel very small, and like I was in some sort of dark fairy tale. Which is a compliment, by the way. Anyhow, I'd move in a second if it wasn't so darn far away.
But since then I've mostly been tucked away in my little office/room/studio drawing, drawing, drawing. To be a busy illustrator feels so nice. I'll post some images of what I've been up to as soon as I'm allowed to.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with this little guy, my friend Austin and I spotted in a shop window:
We almost walked right past him when we realized he wasn't a part of the display. He seemed like a pretty happy guy.
