Page One of The Blair Mountain Comic and Your Impossible Voice...

Right now, I'm working on a graphic story of The Battle of Blair Mountain for the
Cartoon Picayune. Here is page 1....inking is underway!

I'm honored to have "Corrine and the Far Away" from the Women in Water Series as the cover image for Issue #3
of Your Impossible Voice. You can see Corrine is the keynote image on YIV's Twitter account! :-D

Mirror Twins Pillows and Fred gets a shave and a bath....

The mirror twins pillows are stuffed!

Michael gave Fred a shave, and he seemed to enjoy it, as seen by his chipper expression.
....but when Daddy got him wet, Fred's enthusiasm for the enterprise deflated, as seen here.

Character Pillows, My Supervisors, Cartoon Picayune Page, and Somethin' New.....

For my fall exhibition at York Arts, I am making Women in Water character pillows.
Below, is "Freckled Mrs. Goldsmith," and above, "Loretta and Pies in the Sky," is
based on a drawing that will appear in the next issue of The Boiler Journal.

My supervisors this morning are asleep at the usual.... :-)

So I am laying out & inking up draft pages for my Blair Mountain graphic story, which
I am creating for The Cartoon Picayune.

I'm making a foray into something entirely new.....also part of the Women in Water theme, but
this time, in full color. This work is in progress right now. I'll follow up with new pics when it's all done.

Pillows, Fabric, New Drawing, & Charity Raffle Images...

Been working on pillows for the October exhibition at York Arts.
The fabric on the front is from my "Loretta and Pies in the Sky"
drawing from the Women in Water series.

The back of the pillow....using some pretty fabric from my late
Aunt Anne's fabric stash.

I've designed some new fabric at Spoonflower, using more drawings from
my Women in Water Series. Here "Freckled Mrs. Goldsmith" will
eventually be sewn into a character pillow for the October exhibition at York Arts.

Working on a new Woman in Water drawing....I'm thinking the title will be something like
"Hardtack Sally" (hardtack refers to the hard pretzel-like food men kept on them during the
Civil War)

My mixed media work, "Oracle: New Phases, New Moons" will be part of
Future Tenant Gallery's charity raffle this spring....details will follow soon!
