I have been busy. The drawings for the second book in the Dickens Junction series are finished. I’m pretty excited about them. I will post full versions here once the Semi-Famous Author, Christopher Lord, posts them on his own site. It may be a while, but it will happen.
In the meantime, I have revised a sweater (tutorial and photos coming some day…), made more jewelry, designed a new logo for a local liquor store, recovered throw pillows and couch cushions — heck, I’ve recovered most of the bleeding couch in effort to save it from the cats’ shredders — created and modified some recipes (actual food!) and more. Not much that’s too artsy, but…Things have been made.
Today’s Thing really should count as at least 6 things, but I’ll call it one because it’s also not very artsy (though I did use my very own pattern for the pattypan). I am currently crocheting (well, I’m currently typing, but my current project is…) vegetables for two different fundraisers:
1) the forthcoming IndieGoGo campaign for the Montavilla Food Co-Op (one entire set of veggies will be available to one lucky pledger as a perk)
2) my friend’s son’s school’s auction (one complete set of veggies will be up for auction)
So far, each set of veggies looks like this:
But I am not done. I’ll be adding to the piles for a couple more weeks.
Below is a new sneak peak (drawing detail) of a drawing to be featured in The Edwin Drood Murders, due out in the fall of 2013. The book is, of course, the second in the Dickens Junction series, the first being The Christmas Carol Murders, which I know you read and loved.
Happy New Year!
I’m working on drawings for the second Dickens Junction Mystery: The Edwin Drood Murders. I’m having more fun with these as they are a little more my style. I’m really looking forward to the Our Mutual Friend Murders drawings as the subject matter will lend itself to some surrealism fun.
In the meantime, here are a couple of story board sketches that I’m calling Things 39 and 40.
