Ahoy thar, webfolk! It’s been a hot second (read: three months) since my last post. As it turns out, giving birth, recovering from birthing, and caring for a newborn is exceedingly taxing on both my time and energy! Even three months later, I am having to write this post a few sentences at a time.

My art has been coming along at a snail’s pace, but to be fair to snails, they have the advantage of being able to appreciate where they are in their journey rather than speeding through it.

In the mean time, when I am unable to work on my own art, I feed my inner artist with the inspiring works of Nicholas Kole and the adventures of his developing career. His use of color could easily be slurped-up with eye-straws (that’s straws for your eyes)!

Nicholas Kole recently illustrated Disney’s young adult novel, The Curse of Malificant by Elizabeth Rudnick. He’s also currently illustrating The Dawngate Chronicles web comic for Waystone Games, with  John Loren on colors.

In my next post, I’ll get to talking about my current art project and the crazy epiphany I had while working on it. Until then, keep an eye out for snails, and should you happen upon one, say hello for me!
