03 October 2008


I was sent home 3 hours early from work today for something like the fifth time over the past week. Everyone is scared about the economy right now, so nobody is shopping, which means we're super slow and therefore everyone's hours get cut. This is not good for me at all. It's making me feel a bit nervous.

I have been spending some time re-developing characters for my current freelance project. I don't like what I started out with so I decided to go in a bright Edward Gorey/Tim Burton-ish direction. This is what it has turned into so far.

It doesn't look much like what I would normally do, but I tried to keep elements of her similar to what I have illustrated before simply so that I felt like it was still me.

I'm sleepy and to be perfectly honest, I've been in a rotten mood all day. Remember how I mentioned earlier that I'm trying to be good at being alone? It's not getting any easier. I finally got to see my sister for the first time in 3 days but not until 8:30 tonight. We went grocery shopping & then she went straight to bed. I miss her. We never get to have any fun any more.

I think this old grump needs to get into bed herself.

Ps. I really miss my friends.

  1. I love everything that you draw and you've always inspired me even if it's through such a small window as the internet. being alone is hard but things usually stay worse before getting better, yes? it's no fun being patient for longer than you've wanted, but i hope you feel happy soon!
