TW argh


It's snowing.


It's also 34 degrees, so it's barely, barely, barely not sticking, but the temperature is plummeting and the flurries are getting thicker and thicker, so I think it's a matter of time.


Did I mention that we bought into a CSA (farm share) this year? *sighs* I'm guessing we don't get much of a growing season this year.

Submitted my finalized Kickstarter for approval. I feel a little... dirty, but also very excited.

Posted a new sea monster!

I finished another one yesterday, and started the sketch for the next one. We are still $14 from the next stretch goal! I've only got 5 more to do - if we don't make the following stretch goal - and one is drafted.

I'm going to eat some breakfast now, and do some writing. There will be programming and monster care later!

Ugh. It's snowing even harder and starting to stick.
big damn wrench

Still snowing...

... but I'm staying creatively warm with a Muse Fusion over at Torn World:

Come bring prompts! I will be concentrating on doing Sea Monster cards, so as to have that project all wrapped up when the Kickstarter is ready to launch. (Monday? Maybe Monday? If not, the following Monday, on my birthday, is an option... but sooner is better. So nervous!)

Scrubbed the kitchen in defiance of the horrible cabin fever caused by snow and have a window cracked open to let in some fresh air. It's colder now and turned windy. Snow is sticking in places. Grr!

Off to draw monsters eating each other...
sea monster month

Sea Monsters, ho! Also, snow whines.

I finished my earlier card and got two more done for Muse Fusion (which you can see previews of in the comments over here). That leaves just TWO more monsters to draw! Requesting one over at the Muse Fusion is probably your last chance to influence my drawing choice... and this is probably your last chance to sponsor one! Most of the originals are still available, or you can opt for a package that includes prints - all 20 for just $15! We're $14 from a drawing for a free original among all sponsors, and $25 past that adds another monster to my drawing table. I'm be drawing for a print winner from our monster vs monster poll Monday, I think.

And yes, the snow is sticking now. Forecast calls for up to 6 inches over the weekend. I... just... what? Please post photos of your gardens, if you live somewhere where it's green. It cheers me up to think that there is summer somewhere.

I took a reluctant walk with the dog (I was reluctant; he's wearing a big fur coat and thinks everything is awesome, always), and it was horrible. The trail is super punky, with about six inches of collapsing snow left, it's ugly and there is just enough of a driving wind to put little ice bits right down your neck.

I think that the baby has finally settled, and I'm going off to bed myself. She was extra monster-y today, with moments of sweet, and a side of throw-all-the-food-on-the-floor; I'm pretty beat.
