Super Secret Awesomesauce

Yes, I've been absent from blog land, but this time, it's for a good reason! I have been super busy working on a project that I can't really share at this point. I mean, I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you, and then there's the body disposal, and the cover story to think of, and it's just a hassle, and as previously noted, I'M BUSY. So. The secret remains.

I will give you a little bit of a teaser and reveal that it is comic book-related. That's right, my skills are far more random than you ever guessed. Or perhaps I am just overly ambitious. Only time will tell.

I'm going to be working on this secret project for a few more months, so bear with me. Posting might be sporadic, but I will be posting. If you get lonely, go check out one of my many talented friends' blogs. There's something for everyone over there on the blog roll. You could also leave me comments... Delicious comments. Like manna from the internets!

Sketchy! Take a peek in my sketchbook

When you're an artist with a full-time, non-artsy "day job," it can be hard to actually, well, make art. In an effort to keep my drawing skills up to snuff, I've been making sure to at least sketch for a while every day. My husband has joined me in this endeavor, and we've made it over a month now. Woo!

I will admit, on some days when I'm too tired and/or lazy to come up with something super awesome, I just draw whatever happens to be close at hand. And more often than not, that is a cat. (Yes, I am outing myself as a crazy cat person a mere three posts in. As a certain obese Coloradan child would say, I do what I want!)

Cats make great models- when they're sleeping. Fortunately, my little chubsters are extra-lazy! So today, for your viewing pleasure, here are a few sketches of my teeny gray cat, Merle, doing what she does best- sleeping and being adorable.

And because I can't quite do her justice, here she is in all her fuzzy glory.
