Hey there. It's been a long time, I know. In case you haven't already heard, there have been some big changes over here at the Artstuff Studio. I'm still here, but then, "here" has changed. 2017 was quite a year,... Continue reading

If you remember Flossie, you know that with whom I share my studio is kind of a big deal. Flossie was no longer with me when I finally renovated my little studio a couple years ago, but many of the... Continue reading

An outing a couple months ago launched a few very different non-illustration creative projects I've been having fun with lately. We wandered around salvage yards and dug through scrap bins at a leather and hide seller. The salvage pieces were... Continue reading

...and that's that. It's the only choice. Many of us have been on edge: worried about the future and the damage that can be done when a society is desensitized to hate, intolerance, misogyny, corruption, cruelty, and racism. I'm not... Continue reading

Today's post is just a general and sort of random roundup of all things sewing-related that have been going on around here: I'll start by making you all feel soooo (sew) much better about your own skills: against better judgement,... Continue reading

You guys, I have been BURSTING to share with you one of the projects I've been obsessively busy with the past couple months! I've been lucky enough to team up with the amazing folks at HCI Books to create a... Continue reading

As many of us tend to do in January, I have been looking back on my past year. I told you before that it was a rocky one. Emotional extremes, change, growth: all these things became well-documented in the 3... Continue reading

A little over a month ago, my sweet funny little old man Ted left to be with his Original Person forever and ever. I always realized this was just a stop on his way there, and find much comfort these... Continue reading

I'm going to go out on a limb here. If you know me at all or have been reading this blog for a while, you know I am rather guarded when it comes to my personal life. I'll share bits... Continue reading

Flipping back through my sketchbook a bit, I came across this little tidbit from a couple months ago: Funny how I'd already forgotten this. How many of us do this to ourselves, and even if we realize we do it,... Continue reading

This is something that's been in the works since last summer, and I have been absolutely dying to share with you all this time. But then when it was published, I was deep into a heavily introverted hibernation state so... Continue reading

Hey there. How've you been? I've missed you. I realize it's not atypical for me to disappear from the blogosphere for months at a time so you probably didn't even notice I'd been away. I do tend to get super... Continue reading

So how often does this actually happen in real-life: I'm here at the computer and take a peek at Pinterest while waiting for a big file to upload. I see something that looks good, get up right that second, make... Continue reading
