This is probably the most inactive I've been, art-posting-wise, on DA for a while now. It feels a little odd, because I often look at my DA site to take a mental inventory of how I'm doing.

The reality of it is that I'm doing a lot of art that's not ready for posting. My husband, Mike, finished a (longish) short story and a novella in the past months, and much of my efforts have been directed to illustrating those. There'll be a lot to show at the end of that tunnel, but the time isn't right yet.

I've also been practicing more for my Art Instruction Schools lessons. The design one really threw me for a loop, and made me realize how lackluster my design work has been in the past. My Atomic Ranger sketch and Signalman piece reflect the effort I've been putting into character designs, and I'm pretty darn proud of them.

(And work's been a bit demanding, but most of us face that problem and hey, no use complaining.)

But that's my update. I'm still alive, I'm still drawing, and I'm still checking out all the awesome art that pops up on DA.
