“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J. R. R. Tolkien

I'm so grateful for my friends at TDAT. Be sure to check out their blog for the Map Illustration contest winners. Proud to say I got an Honorable Mention for my Mary Queen of Scots Map. Hooray!!!! That was truly a labor of love. And because of the exposure I'm getting at TDAT one of my maps is being used on a fab travel blog!!

All good things. Have a wonderful weekend.

And here's a strange sketch I did while half-asleep. I really want to do something with this... any suggestions? meh... I think I'll move on to my interpretation of Rasputin. Mwahahaha.

Diversity in the Dining Room.

I work off my dining room table- hence the name of this post. It is smack dab in the middle of the house- amidst all the chaos, barbies, transformers, and tv show anthems blaring (I can't tell you how many conference calls I've been on when someone says "what's that noise?" and it's Dora the Explorer or Dinosaur Dan.)

This past week and the next few weeks have been chock full of really cool assignments. I couldn't ask for a better plate of projects. Here's a tiny montage of what I'm working on. This doesn't include the dozens of personal projects that lay half-done on my kitchen counter and bedroom floor (one of which is a map for TDAT of a bar in Westchester- "the best route to get a beer if you're a girl"- I really need to finish that.)

We've made the decision to establish a real office off the dining room- I don't have high hopes this will be done before 2015. ugh. I need to get my wand working.

Traveling Sketch Book

So I sent my Sketchbook in for the tour with Arthouse Co-op and they posted a digital version for viewing. I loved working on this- it forced me to doodle almost everyday so that I could complete it by the deadline. I've got my 2012 sketchbook at the ready.

Take a peek HERE.
