The craziest of weeks

So I consider myself a fairly busy person.  I teach at the Worcester Art Museum, work in my studio on various client projects, finishing up the lettering on Frankenstein, blah blah blah.  But man, this was a rough week I can tell you that.

June 1 - 2 : Andy and I were mentors at Art All State - a straight, 36 hr event.
June 3 : packing, cleaning house, going to a Bon Voyage party, visiting family.
June 4 - 5 : Andy and I lectured some students at Marblehead Middle School on graphic novels, picked up our kitchen table (finally! we eat at a table like real people!)
June 6 : I assembled/stained table, moving refrigerator all by my lonesome (I feel like Big Barda) and dinner with Aunt Faith.
June 7 : Having a consultation with a surgeon (don't worry, it's optional surgery) and trying to weasel in questions for Frankenstein research.

And now today, it's time to get back to client projects and other work.

I wasn't able to get much sleep this week and it really took a toll on my mood.  When I don't get at least 6 hours of sleep, I think my brain stops working right.

I'm surprised my speech made any sense to the 7th graders at Marblehead, because in my mind I was just rambling "Waaah wa hwaaaa wahh ga gaga"

So it occurred to me that my husband and I have the same initials as my parents (A&V).  I don't know why that bothers me?

Anyway, lots more artwork coming, I promise, just need some sleep and studio time!


  1. Ah, it does seem like you've been really busy! I'm fighting feelings of displacement as I go from one home to another. It's not the best for getting good rest and feeling relaxed! But I hope you can catch up on your sleep this weekend~

    1. Thanks! You too! Hope you can bring pieces home with you where ever you go

  2. Your nail polish looks so pretty (in the picture of you holding the chai)and I would have never known these were cell phone pictures - they look really good!
