In Which I Thrive On Deadlines

On Tuesday I got a coupon from Overnightprints.com for 30% off on note cards. It's been my plan, given the really encouraging success I've had selling note cards with the Twist Collective illustrations, to make another series of cards. This coupon (which expired today) was just the bump I needed to make three new paintings of adorable animals in knitwear.

These were a nice way to get seriously back to painting and composing illustrations. (I've been doing some freelance with pattern and textile work, which is an entirely different sort of mindset.) The ultimate goal is to build (rebuild) a portfolio to send to publishers. By January.

In other news, I moved to Jamaica Plain/Boston last week. It's an amazing neighborhood.
