I'm re-starting my day by looking at this picture of a levitating cat.
Aah, better now. I started my day before by waking up with a headache and realising I forgot to do the washing up and grunting at it all trying to locate the instant coffee. Then I realised I have to pack for my holiday (YAYY) and I don't know if I've done enough laundry (NOO) and I have to finish a load of illustration samples for tomorrow (Hrrrwhw) wich I penciled yesterday (YAY) but didn't ink or colour as yet (Hrrmph).
Here's some sketches for you. New book features amongst other things a monkey, so I spent some hours penciling monkeys and holding each one up to Alexis asking "like this??" while watching A LOT of "Monkey Magic" on youTube. Since I've set up my computer work-station I've learned (by accident) how to watch TV on the web, and now Sailor Moon and He-Man keep me distracted from the real world so I can concentrate on the world of little drawings. Some days that helps a lot - this weekend I was mightily distracted from drawing by a friend's birthday party on Saturday where I helped present the surprise present - a lovely DVD projector - which I had to secretly set up above everybody's heads on a transparent landing. Why would anyone want a transparent landing? I guess it's airy. But if I'd considered it properly I wouldn't have worn a skirt. Which was all for the best because I think no-one looked up, and I would have missed the best opportunity to show off my home-knitted skirt to a whole roomful of artists. Ha.
Anyway, the projector is great, I'm almost jealous, not that I had anywhere to keep one - we watched "North by Northwest" on it yesterday after eating loads of party leftovers and it was absolutely amazing. But also the reason why I started the day grumbling and grunting. Arf, could do with another hatful of either sleep or coffee.
OK, time to work!
