Punday..?

cat2In true form… I don’t have a pun to share today, too busy – but I do have another cat!

I like this more solid style better than the previous, softer blended cat, so I’m going to re-do the first one. I should be done with this project this week so then I will become more committed to having good entries for Punday!

Punday.

I’ve decided to start a new Sunday series, where I share puns. Ideally, I will be drawing them.. but being that it’s already Monday when I came up with this idea, for my first Punday I’m sharing a picture of my socks.

French toast, FTW.

type, everywhere.

Hello!

Remember that time I said I was going to blog more and share more of my creative work? And I never did?

Well this time, I’m here to keep the promise! Well, sort of. I’m at least going to give you a sneak peek into a piece I’ve been working on. It’s for a client, for work, so I cannot show you the full thing, but I thought I’d share an in progress photo of some hand-illustrated typography I was working on.

I have to say that I have enjoyed the challenge and creativity of illustration typography, however, and it’s great practice to finally start working on my wedding invitations! (8 months to go…)

So stay posted for that…

Instructions for a Bad Day.

There’s so much negativity and so much drama and I let myself get caught up in it, mostly by being on social media too much. I think social media has some really good aspects, but then it also has some very, very bad qualities. It’s also full of very negative people.

I’m going to make some new efforts, killing two birds with one stone per say… by 1) not being on social media so much and 2) being more positive in my own life and outlook. This includes bringing more positive activities into my life. I’ve been reading a lot, which is great, but also sort of a tactic of avoiding everything else. So more art, it is! More writing! More creativity!

In true Fae fashion, I don’t have anything to show for that now – but here is a beautiful video and spoken word poem (by the fantastic Shane Koyczan) on how to handle having a bad day.
