Sunday afternoon

It's been a week of summer here in the dead of winter. I dread it reverting because I've gotten used to being out gardening and sketching and running in shorts, gathering up my vitamin D. It's only a matter of time before it's 50 degrees and raining...
Anyhow, I've been neglecting my quick sketch skills as I have been doing so much comic book work. I saw the neighborhood kids going up and down the sidewalk in the wagon and had to sketch. I would have stayed and sketched the following football and then basketball games- seems like they are taking advantage of the weather as well! But it was my brother's birthday party and all I got was the wagon sketch.

surfside girls in HB

They're having the year-in-review ArtWalk in Huntington Beach tomorrow... 6-9, with a live band and a no-host bar. Sounds like a good time, and Huntington should be going off with the way the weather has been! I'll be there with my Burger Dude piece. I had a bunch of promo postcards printed up, so I thought I'd share. Come on by for a fish taco if you're in the neighborhood! PS have you checked out yet? I'm updating (and Sam's blogging) on Fridays.

It took a ton of blood, sweat, and tears, help from friends, and a definite neglect of personal hygiene, but is live. Go, now! and check it out. I haven't posted in a while because it's all been going here! Enjoy. Maybe 2011 is the year you learn to surf? (you know you want to!)

Happy New Year

The holidays are over and my break is just beginning! Ethan is back in school, and I have no shopping/decorating/baking Christmas craziness to get after, so I have thrown myself into Surfside Girls Website Creation Mode (SSGWCM for you military brats like me.) I am itching to make art, too, so I've started on some cool things which I will post when I'm farther along. Because I've been computer-bound, I figured I'd put up the illo for our Christmas party. It's inspired me to do more black and white!

Kevin Wood of my writing group has declared 2011 The Year of Woody. I appreciate the sentiment, but actually get more behind making it The Year of Kim. It's very refreshing, and I recommend you try it. The Year of (insert your name here.) Tell people! And then accomplish it! Lot of potential energy in a new year... ride that wave!
