Soundtrack for the first week of 2012: Hack. Cough. Wheeze. Sneeze. Snerk.
I almost made it through all of 2011 without catching a cold. Really. Shortly after Christmas both the DM and I noted that we felt run down. Perhaps we were fighting something. We laid low and tried to stay on top of things but, alas, two days before the new year, I went down for the count. Several miserable days later I am much improved (although not 100%)... but guess who's flat out now?
So you can well imagine that I have no new prints started, nor any new photos of a winter wonderland. What I do have is less interesting but, for me, quite satisfiying.
These are file drawers. Tidy file drawers full of finished prints.
These are tidy paper drawers. Full of prints and drawings not yet made.
And these are tidy office files. With room to spare for all the wonderful things that will come this year.
The purge is not yet as far along as I would like since my end-of-year clearance was so rudely interrupted by a rogue virus, but it's well underway. I'm twitchy to get a new print started, but I think I have to give myself another day or two. In the meantime, now that my head is significantly less congested and/or medicated, I'm going to rifle through some sketchbooks and photos and think about what's up next.
Happy New Year, everyone! Better late than never!
