I love to shop at Publix, if it wasn’t obvious already. Especially in the evening of the summer months; it’s a way for me to relax. I’m not an advocate for retail therapy, but when you’re at home quite a bit, getting out helps alleviate being shut-in.
When I went this evening and was about to leave, I noted this large anvil cloud forming in the distance. I was inspiring to look at, especially seeing it loom in the low-light evening hours. I’m almost certain I’ll see a storm wen driving home tonight.
When I was out for my evening exercise walk, this growing cumulonimbus caught my attention. Aside from it being an interesting sight, I took a snap as it’d be helpful when doing Ellowwood artwork (as it is a skyworld, after all).
I’ve seen this scene a number of times, but a lot of times I’m driving to not take a picture.I’m glad to actually have caught this phenomenon with a camera in hand.
Well, tonight it one of the first times in ages I’m able to relax on Christmas Eve. However, I was behind on art obligations, so I decided to poach off of my Mom’s computer to draw. Why? Well, it’s within tossing distance of the Christmas tree and the kitchen. That way I’m not isolated in my room, holiday togetherness and whatnot.
On a whim, my siblings and I decided to try the acclaimed Death Wish Coffee. The box just arrived this evening; so we’ll see how this stuff actually tastes. I wanted to try this in 2016, but there was a shortage and prices were quadrupled almost. So I’m glad it’s actually affordable this time around.
Unlike last year, I actually took some time to properly decorate my office space now that construction was done more or less. Since I did have a fair amount of work this month, I especially tried to make sure it looked real Christmas-y around the workstation, and even had a garland going around under the monitors! And while I did set up the community tree, I didn’t get to do anything community with it this year, unfortunately. I’ll try to do better next time!
Finally am on the road again after this long while! I’ll be sure to update you with anything interesting I see. While I’m slotted to help drive on the way in, that time is longer into the evening afterwards.
So for now, I get to nap and lounge on the backseat. While out of date, I took the smaller GPS and plastered it to my window so I can see a general trip progress. Hey, it works.
Took this a short bit ago, this mushroom had sprouted randomly in the yard next to the shed. Dad didn’t mow it over, letting me look at it first.
I can say with certainty I’ve not seen a mushroom this big, especially close to the house. I definitely think it’s in the Amanita category; while it’s not the color, the 2nd biggest mushroom on the property was an Amanita of some sort, and has the same patching on top. So fairly accurate in the ID, I think.
I’m heading out to NYC for awhile, and definitely plan to snag you some interesting photos if not stories for you guys. In my absence, enjoy this piece in the meantime. I’ve always joked about sticking someone with older-fashioned clothes in a car for a road trip, so I’m glad to finally properly get this illustrated.

After two rude people at Staples and looking for a copy printer, I finally got the gift art for Anjali Bhilmani’s appearance at Fanboy Expo done! So now I have to wait to meet her this weekend. Fingers crossed she’ll like it.

This was certainly a surprise. If you remember my last post here, I had done a piece for Moon Studio’s #OriValentine giveaway. Turns out I actually won a prize! They sent it out in the mail for me, which arrived a short bit ago.
Until I got these, I had no idea merchandising for this game was really a thing. Stuff’s pretty cool; snazzy pin, little napkin packet and a spiffy journal. Mom actually likes this journal a whole lot, and likes the character art on the front!
I also got my name listed on their site, which is also pretty amazing. A big thank you to you guys, I’m glad you liked my doodle of Ori going giddy over coffee.
