Thanksgiving in leesburg went well.  Turkey turned out perfect.  But the whole day I was tired because we got up so early to drive out there and get the bird in the oven.

Using Friday and today to catch up on drawing.  I've felt like I'm in this drawing swamp, and I'm fighting to get out.  Making progress which is good.  All I can do is keep at it.

Wednesday was tough.  Not so happy with how JDI cards turned out, so I scrambled to fix.  In the end I think it will be just fine.

Ok - back to drawing!

Good productive past few days, running down my list.  I set myself up to be on deadline, and I guess that is what I need to get stuff done.  BUT - feeling under the gun.

working on drawings and printed KONA today.  and some fun special order shirts.

Started the week out much better than now.  As days went on, I became more muddled and bogged down.  Probably has to do with the muddled and bogged down prints I've been working on.

Just keep chugging along!

Bad Blogger lately.

Seems like the last thing to do in the day, and the days have been going by fast.

Artomatic shift went well.  Got to be the "clicker" and greeter, counting people as they came in.  Did ok for a wednesday night, but my thinking is that this artomatic has been a bummer.  The location is just terrible in terms of getting people to come.  Oh well.  One more shift left in December.

Had a great time in NYC with Hexy over the weekend.  Lots of walking, especially saturday, but it's fun being in a new place.  All our senses were engaged, with is really nice.  Everything is new and exciting and interesting.

Great seeing cliff, and his "new" apt.  Really miss having him around.

We got back yesterday, and after a 5 hour bus ride, I wasn't much into working.  The rest of the day went fast, and this morning it was back to the routine.

Lots to print and draw next few days, which is good.  Busy is always good.

Lots to do as always…

November is here, and strangely warm.  Nice to be wearing shorts in the studio.

The time has changed, but Hexy and Remi haven't fully adjusted.  Mornings are earlier than I want them to be!

Gearing up for MCA this weekend, and all beyond.  Business has picked up and I have a long list of drawing and print projects to tackle.  A good place to be.

Heard early Friday that BUZZ was remodeling on Slaters, and I needed to pick up my prints asap.  On one hand a big bummer, but a slow fade that's been happening for months (years?) now.  Still, the exposure has been GREAT, and I was sad to make the big change.  After our yard sale Saturday we went by, and packed up.  I need to go back and see when we first installed.  Years ago.  I never expected it to go on this long!

Yard sale -- really great at clearing things out, not so great at making money.  But that's the way things go.  Just follows the pattern of the entire year.

F I N A L L Y was able to swap prints at Dolcezza last night.  We went over at 10:30 (!), and still … still … still (!) there were people sitting around that table, camped out.  Crazy - don't these people have anywhere else to go??

Anyway, I asked this guy nicely if he could move so I could work on the wall behind him.  He said something like "In 15 minutes when they close".  We waited a bit, then just decided to work around him.  What a jerk.

Good and busy!

Artomatic opened Friday, garage sale Saturday, rockville Sunday, and StoryDistrict today.

Hopefully I can "flesh" those all out later, tomorrow, etc.  RIGHT NOW - I need to get home then to the gym.
