..And I'm a magazine addict.
The addiction is especially acute this time of year, when all the Halloween issues begin appearing on the stands. I can't help it, once September hits, I start jonesing for every issue of glossy, autumny, Halloweeny goodness out there. Thankfully, my addiction is currently being financed by the last of several Barnes and Noble gift cards presented to me at my 50th this summer.
I was especially anxious to check out Somerset Studios "Holidays and Celebrations" issue, which includes a full page ad for the Ghoultide Gathering, and shows a piece of my work...
Hardly a feature, I know, but I was still VERY excited to see my work in print!
Sooooooo, yes. Definite magazine addiction. And this morning - since some kind of dreaded virus seems to have hit - I'd love nothing better than to set aside work for the day, brew up yet another steamy mug of Echinacea tea
....and settle into a big, comfy chair for hours of reading. If wishes were horses, right? ;)
As it is, there's a large storage table and soon-to-be Halloween checkers game calling my name, so just as soon as I photograph some commission work for a collector, work on the new piece will begin. Assuming of course, Arthur is willing to give up his perch...
I'm picturing this one done in the brightest orange and black, with all sorts of Halloween characters, and maybe a little verse around the edge. We'll see how it evolves.
That's about it for this morning. I'm off to brew up a cup of liquid magic and wellness, then to work....
Oops! One more thing!! Almost forgot to tell you about the monthly PFATT giveaway! Run over there and sign up for the drawing - there are some wonderful goodies up for grabs!!
Wishing everyone a happy, *creative* and productive Wednesday!
