A Hodge Podge

As I write, it is Fat Tuesday. Gumbo is on the menu here in our household, as we humbly celebrate Mardi Gras. Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)

This morning, I discovered that Kat Sloma of http://kateyestudio.com/ featured the doodled envelope I sent her for the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap in a blog post. You can read her post here: http://kateyestudio.com/2014/03/whats-in-the-mail.html Additionally, you can check out my original blog post about it here: https://trashbubblesandlifeslittlebits.wordpress.com/2014/02/07/on-my-desk-doodling/

A week or so ago, I signed up to participate in The Dreadful Project. Sponsored by the good people at The Sketchbook Project, Showtime, and New Yorker Promotions, it endeavors to use artistic renderings of our deepest fears to promote the new Showtime ‘Penny Dreadful’ series.

Sign-ups are closed and those participating artists have already received their cards and have begun diligently setting their fears to paper. I have an abstract fear of ghostly apparitions and have begun to try to capture the essence of it here:

Specters in the Dark

Specters in the Dark

Do you see the man to the left of the fold? He freaks me out!

I’m popping back into the studio to work a while longer before heading to the kitchen to make the Gumbo….

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
