Number 1 Dog Ribbon

Wednesdaily with Wheee! (Kickstarter update, and winning at swimming)

FUNDED! Fishbowl Fantasies is funded!

Next up, Apples and Roses - and we're already 25% of the way there!

I'm doing inventory and adding available titles for the mix-and-match choices. Many of these are 'the last available,' so if you're a collector, keep your eyes peeled. I'll also be releasing the next cover shortly!

Guppy and I went swimming yesterday - I enrolled us in a parents and tots class with quaking knees. You may recall that the last class I tried to take her to was a miserable failure, with clinging and wailing and general despair. That was more than a year ago (almost two years ago!), and this class was like night and day.

For one, the previous class was CHAOS. There were ten or twelve of us in the parent/tots class, and I think there were seven or eight older classes happening at the same time. The pool was cacophonous, crowded, and BRIGHT. This time, we were in a class of two, the lights were dim, the water was warm, and there were NO other classes going on. Guppy wasn't real sure about getting in, and she was reluctant to let the swim instructor handle her, but for the most part, there was giggling and splashing and throwing of balls, and she agreed that it was fun and wanted to go again almost immediately.

She also ate most of a chicken for dinner and is still sleeping.

Which is good! I've got stuff to catch up on! And now I'm going to do that!

New artwork: Tam Lin

Tam Lin is a traditional ballad that I have illustrated for the fairy tales coloring book I'm Kickstarting right now. (We're more than halfway there! Horrah!)

This is 9x12(ish) inches, ink on bristol. Original is available, $200. It may be added to a Kickstarter pledge for no additional shipping charge, and it will then count towards our stretch goals! I'm not listing originals directly at the Kickstarter site, however, because I really, REALLY didn't want to deal with the hassle of managing everyone else's originals, and it felt unfair to feature only my own work for these collaborative books.
