A rare “brush” post for Brush and Baren

Perhaps I should have titled this post “Where-the-heck-did-she-go Wednesday.”

The answer is that she got chained to the drawing table for the past week. Trip to the Front Range? Cancelled. Mostly because of weather, but also because I had multiple illustration deadlines in head-on collision. The good news is that I have work, the bad news is that it’s keeping me away from the press.

In between bouts of sitting at the drawing table I’ve been sitting at the computer. (How dumb is THAT?) A major overhaul of my website is underway! It’s going to be great when it’s finished, but right now it’s just tedious. I’m switching everything out of Dreamweaver and learning to use WordPress… trading one persnickety beast for another. But as I said… it’s going to be great when it’s finished.

I sent files for two jobs off to proof last night, and as a reward for good behavior I started prepping paper for a new print. Going to make the leap to a slightly larger image this time: 12 x 18. And something landscape-y rather than birdy. Can’t wait to get started!
