So here are those acrobats all colored up and ready to go...
They'll probably get a few tweaks and such before they go into the shop to join their fellow circus folk.
Speaking of which, I'm having a color conundrum with my darling bearded lady: pink makes her look a wee bit more girly than I was going to go for, but it kind of works since, you know, she has a BEARD and the pink + beard is kinda funny. BUT I think she looks so pretty in blue, and there's something nice about the caramel colored BG against a nice cool periwinkle blue.
So, I'm leaving it up to you.
Make it PINK!
Make it bloooo!
Whatta ya think?
Also, while I was attempting to become organized this past week (as I often find myself doing), I decided it was high time I sifted through the giant stack of papers that was taking up waaaaay too much space under my table. It had a little bit of everything in it, and as I got toward the bottom of the stack I hit Pixar drawings (mostly mine but a good portion are other people's caricatures of me), and mixed in there was this little guy:
It's a little rat drawing by Teddy Newton! SO appealing! Even his signature is all elegantly executed. It lives on my cork board now so I can ogle it all the time and show it off to people who come into my workspace.
OH yeah, and I went to the Felt Club this past weekend! It was really, really overwhelmed by all the cool stuff, and tragically I didn't have much cash on my person. But I found a few cool shops to share anyway: Ach Ach Leibling had really excellent delicate jewelry, Mahar Drygoods had some of the cutest toys and stuff that made me wish I had babies just so that I could have an excuse to buy them, and Ryn Rini had the most wonderful little felt hats that I pined away for for the rest of the afternoon.
