Happy New Year everyone! Hope no one else is sick now, since everyone else around me is. I got away with only a case o' the sniffles, but I've been making soup and tea all week for Drew who is battling an all-out plague. Being sick is no fun except for the fact that cats get 2x cuddlier. I swear they can tell when you're sick.

We're already a week into the new year, so I'll save you my pontificating and reflecting. I just know 2011 was a really great year for me, and I am hoping to keep the ball rolling for 2012. We ended the year with a trip to San Francisco to visit art school buddies Matt, Megan, and Mclean, to go hiking and such.

Everything in California looks like this and nothing in Texas does.

And let's round out this post with some sketchbook stuff:

Gossipy girls

Drew told me to draw a mage and I clearly know nothing about fantasy archetypes. But here's a kid with her daemon probably.

Thanks as always for reading.
