Yes.

Or "A Belated Birthday Gift For My Husband, Which I Finally Managed to Finish, Albeit A Couple of Weeks After the Fact."Some notes: My husband Andy is 15 years older than I am, which occasioned some comment when we were dating, and when we got engaged. Most of it was lighthearted in nature -- well, except... Continue Reading →

"…the trees don’t die, they just pretend, go out in style, and return in style: a new style."*

Black marker and colored pencil, drawn on the back of an appointment reminder from my doctor.  (If you look closely, you can see the map with directions to the clinic showing through.) For some reason, I've never been good at keeping a sketchbook, but often use scrap paper, the envelopes from junk mail, etc. Found... Continue Reading →

Holy cow (and exploding cat)

Okay.  Neil Gaiman just re-tweeted me.  NEIL FREAKING GAIMAN.He'd originally tweeted, "Dear god I'm up against Stephen Fry in the Anglo Fan Favorites tournament."
