Hey! It's June! It's been nuts here, and now I'm about to have a house guest, and then head out of town. So posting will be sporadic for the next two weeks. But hey, Charlie will probably have a lot of business trips in July, so I should be around a ton then!

I started June off with my very first trip to Disneyland! With a free ticket courtesy of a friend of a friend, because I am not made of money. It was really fun. Like, way more fun than I expected it to be. The fact that it's mainly pokey paced kiddie rides is entirely my speed. Also, not much in the way of lines. During a crippling recession is apparently the exact right time to go to a popular and expensive amusement park if you really want to get the most out of the experience.

The rest of the week was mainly spent working on art stuff and house stuff. The house stuff is boring, and some of the art stuff I can't share as it was made as gifts for people who might see this. But hey, check this guy out.

An ivory billed woodpecker, as requested by my long-time friend Jean. I'll be mailing him off to her soon.

Also, I've been cutting up the paper grocery sacks we've accumulated, and binding them into little books. I think they'll be excellent for drawing in.

So I hope to be back at this soon! And once I'm back from visiting my family, I'll be around here a lot more.
