Still Here – Rocking away on the Good Ship Vertigo

I apologize for having abandoned my blog for a while there. I am still here. I am okay. The vertigo had gone away for a bit and I got cocky. It’s back, it’s not awful, but it’s still exhausting. I haven’t had anywhere near as much time or energy as I would like to make things or act like a human.

I decided to continue with the blog again.

I’m not going to try and fill in the gaps on everything. But it wouldn’t be any fun to make a post without giving you some new images.

I went to Hell City Columbus. I painted. These got this far while I was there.

I also made a few new needle felted critters while I was at Hell City.

This last one requires a bit more explanation. There was an art show going on there with the theme “My Best Friend is a Dick”. So they were handing out these bitty penis canvases for us to paint on and contribute. I was working with oils and had only brought large brushes. I wasn’t going to be able to make anything on a surface that small. So instead I needle-felted a Trouser Mouse. Goes with the theme.

Some people were amused by the Trouser Mouse and some people were pretty indignant about how awful it was. Which is why I have hesitated to post it. I’ve decided if you don’t have a sense of humor, you might as well go away now.

Here is my first couple of attempts at creating digital drawings on the iPad with ProCreate. This is still more time consuming than drawing at this point, but I hope to become more efficient as I get more used to the program.

Since I have been laid up I decided to make the best of it so these are both inspired by the first book in the RedWall series which I hadn’t read previously.

and here is another little rodent that I made more recently (with his little bunny friend).

Again, I apologize for vanishing for a while. I would say that I am going to be here more frequently again – but really, only time will tell.
