In Which I Aten’t Dead

Whoops.

I did stick out ICAD until nearly the end, and I’ve got the cards lying around here somewhere. But I sort of forgot I had an art blog over the past six months due to factors including but not limited to:

  • a sudden overwhelming obsession with Captain America
  • various deaths in the family
  • my pseudo-nephew turning a year old
  • slow-burning rage over current events
  • the abrupt and unforeseen closure of the shared studio I’ve been part of for several years
  • Christmas

So that’s what happened there.

In the interests of making this post less banal, here are some ATCs I did awhile back:

In Which I Emerge From My Lair

…and go to the ATC meetup with Mom.

To be perfectly honest I have occasionally had more fun at the dentist’s, but such is life, especially for the introvert.  On the plus side, I did actually make an ATC for a change, out of the random baggie of stuff I got at the door:

Not a very good photo, but then it’s not a very good card, either.  Maybe tomorrow I’ll be back to doing things I actually like.

In the meantime I am crawling back into my burrow for the night.  Toodles.
