I've never celebrated World Cat Day, and in fact, each year I forget. This year I've marked my calendar, and will make a point to look at my cat, and say 'thanks for being you'. But now I say this out loud, and remember she can't hear anymore (she's 18!!), so....rethink....I'll hug her. Ok, she doesn't like that either....I'll give her a really GREAT brushing....uncheck that too. What good is my pooping/farting/dandering/meowling/dusty cat???? She keeps me sane. I love her.
I've been working with Lindan Courtemanche from Heuristic Branding for over a year, adding my linework to her vision for Chudleigh's Apple Farm. There've been drawings from apples to hot dogs (literally) to wagons that lend a playfulness to an established family grown venture. Growing up, Chudleighs was a family outing highlight, especially for a kid that grew up in the city, and it's nice to see the tradition continue. There's even more info at i2iart!
Or just reminiscing. I loved drawing out these actual alumni from Middlebury College. Makes me feel nostalgic about being in a classroom.
I do. If I don't, I find myself stressed out about how I'm going to pay for all this stuff. Who needs gifts when you can spend time with friends, any MAYBE spend some money on food and drink. Ok, you can bah humbug me all you want, but don't think your friends aren't thinking the same, so why not paddle that same boat and just cheer on the season (and by cheer, I mean literally saying 'yay!' and then you're done).
