*red bubble, books, and the doctor

After much coaxing from friends, I've set up my red bubble store :)

I do apologise for the lack of posts lately. Life has been utterly mad! But on a happy note, still drawing, still inspired, and for some reason - TOTALLY hooked on Doctor Who... 

I have NO idea how that happened, but it did.

i blame certain friends. you know who you are ;)

At first it was Christpher Eccleston, but then all of a sudden I got hooked on the 10th, and now the 11th??? 
When will the madness stop??? 

Also, a co-worker has loaned me a beautiful book.

I'm only about a quarter into it, and it's just beautiful. The only reason she loaned it to me, is because I went into the tea room one afternoon to heat up my lunch and she was reading it, teary eyed, and for the second time. Basically, the book ended and she started it up again from page one. That says a lot about a book. But yes, so far, it's absolutely lovely. 

Anyway. Hope everyone is well! Hopefully, I'll get back into my usual mode of blogging.

*work in progress preview

I have another piece in the works. I spent most of Sunday in my office/studio with my head to the drawing board. My poor hubbly saw me maybe twice all day long, but I feel so good about it.

I was listening to Elliot Smith for a little while when I was drawing and started thinking about my cousin who comitted suicide a few years back. I was never sure of the situation or the reasons why he did it, but when can anyone understand that. In my mind, I started to compare the phrase of 'someone came and took your peace of mind' to how he must have felt.

I looked at my drawing and started seeing peace in her eyes and I hope that is what he eventually felt. Peace.
