A Year of Sketching!

So I've finally finished up this back-burner project, which is to put my entire sketchbook from 2008 up on my website. Go and see!

My 2008 Sketchbook
Okay, so you might have to be a little dedicated to click through all those thumbnails. But still, could be fun! I love looking at other people's sketchbooks.

I had a credit to use over at Paperback Swap (lovely wonderful way to get free books!) and I ordered Catundra, one of those Serendipity books I loved so much as a kid. I got it today, and oh is it cheering me! I've always adored Robin James's illustrations and looking at them was definitely an influence on me wanting to be an artist when I was growing up. They're just so colorful and lush and sweet. Plus, anything that brings me back to my childhood gets an A+ from me. ;)
We have ACTUAL, REAL ZUCCHINIS growing on the zucchini plants now! The bell peppers have started to flower! This is all rather too exciting. The top garden is really growing well too -- it's really kind of amazing that these lovely green things with fruit on them come from just a little seed.
In other art news, I am actually finding myself in the rare (for me) position of having *too many ideas at once*. Now if I can just draw them all before I forget them.
