Old Envelopes

These are some old envelopes I found in Wahpeton, ND at an antique store, Mother Hubbard's Cupboard. They are all pretty cool, but the best find is the top one addressed to Geo. E. Ulrich. That's a family name on my mom's side. We're from Illinois, the Joliet area. I'll have her check to see if there's any relation to this Ulrich. :)

Snow Angel

In the middle of the summer, during a horrible heat wave, I was laying in bed unable to sleep and suddenly had an urge to play in the snow. Then I suddenly got obsessed with wanting to build little snow cherubs! So about 5-6 months later, I awoke to the first measurable snowfall and best of all, it was STICKY!!! Yay! Catherine and I ran outside, but didn't have too much time to play in the snow, and managed to build one snow cherub. I hope to build more next time! :)

Monsters have invaded the house!

Late last night Catherine and I needed a break and we decided to make these guys for the front window! I only had time to make the two posted at the bottom.

I love the far right monster the best! He has a cute heart shaped tongue!

This little guy likes to play peekaboo behind the curtain. He's made of scraps. He's little, but is full of energy!

I'm surprised that the thin lines in the horns are easily seen from outside. :)

For more pics, check out Catherine's blog.

quick bus sketch

A guy on the bus looked interesting so I tried to secretly sketch him, but I am HORRIBLE at pretending I'm not drawing. He totally suspected something was up and didn't look happy about it. This is the quick failed attempt. lol. ;)

I feel oh so very rusty with drawing. I must find time for it. All my drawing lately has been directly into Flash or Photoshop. I miss paper! :s

Not dead. Just busy! ;)

Sorry for the lack of posts. I have been super busy animating a large project and am nearing the end of it. I hope to find some time to start sketching more for fun in the near future. We'll see....
