Maternity Leave

Yes, I have been silent a long time. Two days after my last post, I gave birth to a beautiful little baby girl. So Dave's father's day was merely a couple of days delayed!

So I spent the better part of nine months not printing because the ink smell just turned me right off, and now I've been off any art whatsoever because I've been looking after our new edition (get it? yeah, lame!).

To keep you at least slightly entertained, please enjoy this "How Ink Is Made", produced by a Canadian company which creates ink for commercial printing applications. It's a wonderful presentation.



Keep well, all, and I'll get back to it as soon as I can!! I have so many ideas that I'd like to work on, I just need some time and energy... might be a while :)

my little one, born June 24th, 11 years ago now, took an awful lot of energy to take care of, especially since he wasn't all that fond of sleeping! Because I know how torn I was back then, feeling like my artistic career was slipping away from me, I want to say: try not to feel like you're neglecting your art while taking care of baby and yourself... looking back at the period of time where I wasn't producing much other than milk, it's just a blip in time. Your fans will wait for you, I'm sure.

Congratulations on your little bundle of joy!

Amie,

Congratulations on the new baby! I am so happy for you and Dave. It does get easier to have time for art, I have learned to do a lot in short spurts of time.

I wish you the best,
