The first of the 2009 Calendars, in this case a small preview of my book The Painted Hand: An Artful Life in Paint and Paper, is up for grabs on Lulu. A collection of some of your favorite collage pieces as well as a few snippets of creative writing will keep you company for 12 months throughout the coming year. Come take a look!
Yes, it’s true. My Red Riveted Rooster Rocket business cards have finally been retired…
They had a long run and were very popular but, though I still do children’s book illustration, my style focus has shifted and I needed something to reflect that. I have also been doing a great deal of writing lately, both on my novel (one of them) and with the local writer’s group that I run, so I wanted to incorporate that somehow as well.
The text is from what is now chapter three of the novel for my Odonatia project. I am going to be using the month of November, NaNoWriMo, to complete the manuscript and begin editing in December. I am looking to publish in the first half of 2009 so I am really excited. The few individuals who have been privy to my writing have been sitting on the edge of their seat waiting patiently for the final read. They are my cheering squad and my whip crackers so it has been fun.
