Rough Stuff

They say you have to take the rough with the smooth. I've been working on this Bonfire Boys sequence (for my Storydello blog) for months, and parts of it are still pretty darn rough!  I hope it will come together soon. I'm looking forward to taking some "smooth with the rough."

Supervisory Cat

Happiness is a messy palette, a mug of tea, a supervisory cat, and a rowdy ancestor.

The smallbook in progress is for Storydello. It's about my great-great-great grandfather, John Stanbridge.
