Have I mentioned how much I dislike Daylight Savings Time? Early church - even less sleep than normal. Drawing to stay away - but too sleepy to focus sufficiently. Ah well...

Have I mentioned how much I love Jimmy Fallon's musical perfomances? The toy-band version of Idena Menzel's "Let it Go" is fabulous (better than the Oscar performance IMO).
And oh my goodness! The lip-sync battle with Paul Rudd is one of the funniest things I've ever seen!
(his lip-sync battle with Joseph Gordon Levitt is also pretty epic. Look it up. :-)

Spent the weekend at FaerieCon West - mostly helping to watch the transplanted FAERIE II Exhibition from Krab Jab - but I got to see some friends, catch a few panels and buy some faerie goodies!
Lots more pictures on my facebook page....

This year, I curated the Faerie Art Show for Krab Jab Studio.
Happily, a number of top notch artists agreed to participate.
I also helped physically lay out the show, and 'decorate' the studio to make it more faerie-licious.
The turn-out was brisk, despite impending inclement weather.
There was lots of fabulous art - here from Sheila and Omar Rayyan.
Brian Froud (there are Pressed Faerie paintings as well as a number of incredible fine art prints).
Faerie portrait from Greg Manchess.
Gorgeous graphite from Jean-Baptiste Monge - along with many many other pieces. (You can see the online catalog here).
Along with the original art, there are books and prints - so many visual delights!
The other thing I worked on was the snack table - a faerie feast!
- an assortment of dark delectables.
- and goblin fruits. :-)
The crowning centerpiece of the entire spread was this overflowing basket of incredibly realistic meringue mushrooms (made by an uber-talented friend of mine).
Aren't they gorgeous? (The looked realistic enough that no one would eat them until I labeled them).
This tiny art patron got her handful of goblin fruit and faerie mushrooms and staked out a section of floor to enjoy a picnic.
Lots of friends came to support - despite a bleak and snowy evening.
Thanks again to head poohbah, the illustrious Julie Baroh, for facilitating all things Krab Jab.
It was a lovely night, and even a more lovely show.
You still have a couple of weeks to see it. This weekend, it will be at FaerieCon West - along with a half dozen of the show's artists.

Church is early this year (9am. So not my time of day...) - makes the brain-focus-drawing-thing a little less...focused? Tried stylizing as I went. Various degrees of success.
In the teensy bright-red purse Moleskine balanced upon my knee.
