from my computer for a few days just enjoying life but of course still doodling. Here is one of my practice pages. Just an idea generator something I do pretty much all of the time. Happy Sunday.

I took 10 illustrations to the printer today and will have copies of my coloring book soon! They will be printed on standard 8.5 by 11 cardstock so you can color them and frame them! I am going to bind them myself and the cover will be a surprise. Cost will be $15 plus $4 for shipping. If you want to pick them up from the shop you can buy one now and include will pick up in the notes to seller and I will refund the $4 shipping fee. Delivery will be in 2 weeks or less and will include a personal little original doodle in every book!

This is particularly hard for me to live up to. I am very impatient when it comes to wanting things to be done right away. Making all of these black and white illustrations and collecting enough of them to make a fun coloring book has been so hard. I just want to fill them with color but I need to just be patient.

Forgot to post a doodle yesterday. Hope this one will do. I scanned 10 of my images last night and think I need to make about 5 more and then I will start working on my coloring book!!! They will be printed on heavier paper so you can color them and frame them yourself! How fun is that.

There has been a lot of chatter on Facebook recently about an article that was in PLUS model magazine about plus sized models and regular size 0 models. The article included a photo of two models...one the standard size zero and one a "plus sized" model who was a size 12. The article went on to talk about the average woman in the US being a size 14 and still "plus sized" models are still usually only size 6 to 12. Now that is absurd to me. There is no way anyone who is a size 6 should be considered plus sized but then again the bigger part of me thinks who cares anyway. Who cares what the fashion industry says, who cares what the bitchy perfect snob says, who cares what the bully at school says...who cares. The minute you feel the need to defend everything in your life and justify anything including your weight to anyone ... is the minute you surrender yourself to living the life you deserve to live. Let's all just stop trying to be pretty and start trying to just be PRETTY AWESOME!

So my fabulously talented and super fun friend Joanne Sharpe posted on her blog that she is going to post a doodle every day! What a super duper idea...so I am copying her. :) While I will try my hardest to do it every day I will say I am for sure going to try and do it during the week. I do doodle on weekends but I don't always do computer stuff...so here is my first doodle. Used sharpies and watercolor paints on mixed media paper.
