Well hello there, readers of the world wide web. How are you?

I've been in go!go!go! mode this week so I'm waltzing into the weekend a bit disheveled. A good disheveled, inspired, excited, so-many-things-I-wanna-do disheveled. I've sent three separate projects for clients that I started at all different times to the printing studio this week, which is, like, bananas...and quite possibly one of the best feelings. To see one of them I started envisioning months ago (while spaced out riding the subway and quickly doodling my ideas on a scrap piece of paper I found in my purse) culminate into something that is ready for the stage of printing?'s beyond rewarding. I'm so thankful for this feeling!
This weekend? I have to draw a dog and file my taxes. (Well that's certainly an interesting juxtaposition.) Maybe I should submit the dog illustration to Turbo Tax to brighten their day? Ya know, like a happy addendum. (Please see section labeled other and double-click on filename woof.) I will also be starting celebrations early for somebodayyy's (coughcoughPatrickcough) birthday. Our attitudes towards birthdays couldn't be more opposite which gives me the task of making a birthday-hater, well, not. Wish me luck!
p.s. Don't forget to set your clocks forward an hour on Saturday night. It's a great time to check your smoke detectors, too!
