One thing I keep . . .

Often I smush everything on to one page . . .

What are YOU up to?

Plans Change . . .

Did not visit the Garden yesterday.

I was brave . . . 

and went looking for new family

a new place to belong.

Maybe next week I'll visit.

One thing for sure, i will draw.


Inktober is right around the corner.

Any of you participating this year?

Knowing what to expect,

I'm better prepared.

And . . .

after several weeks

I'm expecting the "first ever" zine to return.

The Best Printer of Ever

has taken special care -

making sure it is up to their standards.

I have an advocate there walking the project through the process.

It appears we are all learning new things . . . 

during this exceptional time of protective restrictions.

Here's A Fish:

This is not a fish!

 My workbook pages have fish sketches around all the notes.
I wonder what good this stork is bringing?
Ya never know when the next
surprise overtakes us along the way.

If I Got My Ticket



I'm SUPPOSED to be drawing four vehicles . . four times each . . . BUT, i saw a 1918 black and white photo of a group/gang of folk - their sign reads "wear a mask or go to jail" . . (so, we've been here before, i guess) . . they looked like they were waiting at a train or bus station . . . like a welcoming crew, of sorts . . . i simply HAD to give it a try

Crumble In

i was doing something else altogether
When I stopped to read an article from
Atlas Obscura
and found 

My grandfather ate this regularly.

His Life Story - as i know it 
doesn't match the history
in the nifty article
Sure makes me happy to see it
and remember my Grandfather.

This music made me feel like "Cartoon Dancing"

Cave Painting

A few weeks back I was thinking
maybe. someday I'll be able to draw like the cave paintings in France.

Then, I lucked in to a drawing course from BYU
The First class 
we drew stuff that looked
 like it came from those same caves

I don't draw as well as ancient mankind

class notes
not as nifty as cave paintings

Dreamworks TV by Peacock Kids  

me?  I'll persevere

I can hear "put down those crazy pencils before someone gets hurt!"  
And - these guys are from two different places . . 
I have a habit of filling a page with whatever fits . . . 
But, a child in a Flamingo Suit . . 
even if the pencils have a hard time with "Flaming Pink" . .
 it was worth the craziness . . . 
Still Laughing . . 
 Hard. . . 
the colorful shirt guy came from a class I decided not to pay attention to . . 
so, couple of days ago . . . he showed up here while i was listening to a lecture . . .
 they are so close together on the page . . . 
well, there you go and there you have it.  
I gotta hide those crazy pencils for a while . . . 
(Still Laughing!!!)

Take Time for YourSelf . . .

Time Just for My Self?
I took a little today.
After attending to scheduled appointments I stopped for "a cuppa"
and claimed a corner to read a little bit. 

Except, i had a hard time keeping quiet
I decided to read:
James Thurber.
What a delight.
His sketches are included
but best of all
at least to me
is the HUMOR.
Yay!!! for some humor.
In case introductions are called for:
James Thurber
You don't have to spend any do-re-mi.
The public library will have his work.
There's LOTS to choose from.
go ahead - give your life a little giggle room.
I highly recommend it.
love & love,
