Something big happened a week and a half ago - I left my office day job! And I'm just writing about it now? Apparently I did the vast majority of my web stuff while I was there (shhhhh).
I'm not generally a big risk taker, so this move was a pretty big deal for me. Big ups go out to my pals for encouraging me to take the leap. 10 days in and it's really feeling like the best decision ever. Scary and exciting.
Danielle and I can now devote more time to Falconwright (check out the new sewing machine we scored above - it's a beast!) and hopefully I will eventually settle into some kind of routine that will enable more drawing, more screen printing, more music making. Who knows!
The past week and a half has definitely been a bit of a blur. I've been to the burb-y outskirts of town looking for sewing machines and various leathers. I've printed and cut and taken pictures. I've been working on some wedding invites for a friend with my new favourite thing in the world: ink and a paintbrush. I skipped out of work on a Friday afternoon to drink wine in the park with Jason. My google reader has ballooned to a truly intimidating number of unread entries. There have been highs and there have been lows. And time has flown by much faster than anticipated.
So! If you want a scrappy illustration to accompany your article, to adorn your book jacket, to advertise your event - I am officially open for business. Custom (unrealistic) portrait? Sure, why not.
And I also caught up to the present day phone-wise and joined Instagram. If you crave more gauzy photos of screen printing, plants, snacks, leather, and baseball in you life - you can find me here: @dead__weight
