A little dog...

Just a little chihuahua doodle so I can say this blog is active!

Still hecka-busy on a really cool project that will probably keep me inside for the better part of the next month. It's all super-OK though, this project is teaching me so much, Though it leaves me no time to draw doodleheads or participate in Illustration Friday. I'm hoping maybe this weekend?!?!?!

Hey, by the way, great news!! I start a (non-freelance) job-job in August. You know, the kind where you to to an office on a daily basis!! I'm very excited to have some normalcy again, a regular paycheck, eventual benefits and all that. Most of all though, I'm excited because it's the only kind of job-job I'd actually WANT to take, if not being freelance anyway. A dream come true, really. I will be joining the "Wubby" team as a character designer for a Nick Jr. Show! Everyone seems so nice and welcoming, I can hardly wait to start. The creator, Bob Boyle, has his own blog too... showing the progress of the show in development. Check it out! It's really cool to see all the thought that goes behind all the decisions, watch the fantastic designs come together and it's also just so nice that someone like Bob is willing to share all that. AND welcome his crew too.

Thank you Roz, Claire and Steve!
I wasn't planning on mentioning outloud or anything, til I actually started...but since Bob
wanted my bio over there, I figured I was good to announce it to the world. Ok, to the three people who visit MY blog! (he he!)

Happy to see you stopped by Claire. Your blog rules and I've been a fan for quite some time.

Steve, I know! How cool that I get to work with Sandra E.! I'm a lucky girl!!!

Congratulations Paige! How exciting! I am so happy for you.

Y'know Sandra emailed me about a month ago and we exchanged pleasantries on our personal illustrations, styles and influences. I thought boy, y'know, California must be the home of some of the nicest people. So cool you two get to work together. I hope to actually get down to California soon and meet up with you nice folks sometime.

All the best,

thank you, Denis and Steve M!
It's really nice to hear from some of my very own, personal heros. Thanks!
I'll definitely keep you updated once the gig begins and all that.
AND, of course, if ANY of you are ever in Los Angeles for a visit, I sure hope you let me know.
