The ears I kept gabbing about last week but never showed off...

They are figures for a thesis on hearing loss and treatment by Candis Shannon. We go way back! I babysat her daughter Carolyn when I was in middle school, and did odd job around the place for her. In many ways, she helped me start EMG, since it was that babysitting money that fueled all the initial expenses and got me started. Candis is deaf, but reads lips, and now has treatment (see pictures!) that enables her to hear. She played in the local orchestra ... um... french horn? ... I forget, but did it all by feeling the vibrations through the floor before she was able to get correction for her hearing. She's planning to write a book which I am dying to read, and she'd like me to illustrate it. :) A wonderful woman, and I feel really fortunate to have been a part of her life - I'm really glad we've kept in touch.

Having trouble getting moving this morning... want to twiddle along and write fanfic or take a nap in the worst way and keep getting distracted. Stupid Internet. Ought to go knuckle down on some artwork now, or work on the article for EMG-Zine, or something useful. Blah blah blah...
