Inktober Day 1: Poisonous
Happy Inktober! This is my take on day one’s prompt. This was done with a variety of Pitt ink pens and colored with Windsor and Newton alcohol markers.
OK, so it's been a while since I last wrote.  I know literally billions of fans have been going nuts because of it.

Since you last heard from me, a few things have happened.  I've been in and out of work; in and out of hospitals; leaving baffled doctors in my wake. 

I've had some happy times.  My fifth and last child was born on February 21, 2010.  He's now 3 and is potty training---he's almost got the hang of it.

I guess it goes without saying that I've also had some bad ones.  I've even gotten to the point a few times where I wondered what the point of it all is.  Best not to dwell on those, though.  We all know where that shadowed road goes.

Though I've been absent from Deviant for a long time, I've still been working.  I've drawn cartoons both for fun and on commission.  I've designed logos, and built ventriloquist dummies.  Some of them can be seen here. 

My latest project is learning how the polymer "baking" clay works.  I've been making little things like Christmas Elves and jack-o-lanterns with it.  If I could only learn to put the finished sculpture out of the reach of 3 year-old hands, then I might have something to show you.  Just kidding...he's only destroyed one of them (two, if you could popping the carrot nose off my snowman).  When school starts again, and I have more free time (I am the Momma-Daddy, after all) I'll be able to do more.

I'll try to write again before another five years passes me by.  So in the meantime, browse my gallery, buy some mugs and prints, and keep creating!
