No, the blog is not abandoned

I recently interrupted my schedule with a road trip to the northeast (my man works halfway across the country), so it’s caused an interruption in my projects. I spent some of my down time with a sketchbook practicing drawing flies though. I’d like to do a coloring book that focuses on carnivorous plants, so knowing the details of how fly bodies work seems fairly important. It turns out studying dozens of photos of flies still won’t answer some of the mysteries of how their bodies are put together, so I might need to find a model in resin, or maybe a little desiccated bugger in the window.

In the process, I’m coming up with quite a few ideas, so the next few weeks will probably be full of me sketching away quietly. Once my persnickety attention to detail is satisfied, the first coloring booklet won’t be far behind.

Desktop Wallpaper

Here is how I spent my time this week. There will be coloring pages and merchandise based on this design, maybe some stickers. I want to order some samples and try a few different palettes out before I throw it up here. In the meantime, here’s a desktop wallpaper.
