Business as usual

Two big bags of orders in my car to mail today. My studio needs remedial cleaning.

Art and Authoring

I got the artiest, most wonderful weekend. I finished 'Go Around' (but will not be posting it until the calendar is ready for download), I finished 'Green Fairy,' I started a logo commission (draft already enthusiastically approved), I doodled a new piece I'm going to try to finish this week, and I worked on an entry for the latest Torn World contest that I am fantastically, deeply thrilled with.

I also did a bunch of laundry, scooped the catbox, and cleaned our living room, kitchen and bathroom, which was actually more work, but far, far less satisfying.
