I have knitting on my mind.

... as usual.

The last time I drew Dumbledore was about three years ago. As seen here. I love the way my art has progressed. Immediately after art school, I felt a bit in a rut. I think doing actual knitting and crochet work has helped my art as well because I'm allowing my creativity to take on all different kinds of shapes.

Watercolors and ink. Original size is approx. 4.5"x6.75"

Cold Hands pg17

This story is not designed to be a web-comic, if you recall from the very first page of it. As seen here. So, the pacing is slower than I normally like. I might decide to print out a few copies to sell in my Etsy store so that if people are interested, they can read the story as intended: Without the gaps of time in between each page posting and the accompanying notes that a lot of times have nothing to do with the story. I say this, mostly though, because I think the next post I put up may have more than one page in it as the narrative/sequencing breaks down due to the intermission being told in splash pages. Hm. Well, you'll just have to wait and see what I do.

Summer time keeps drawing closer. There are two things I am really looking forward to: 1.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and 2.) San Diego Comic Con.

Cold Hands pg16

So, I did an interview with the very cool artist Palle Schmidt, whom I met at this year's MoCCA Fest. Please check out his website, where you can read all about it. The interview.

And now, on to a little rant I have.

Parents need to teach their kids not to sexually harass women on the street. If you don't correct that behavior, they will never learn. They will grow up to become perverts and deviants. It's not funny. It's not cute. It shouldn't be tolerated at any age.

End of rant.

I frogged that gray sweater from two posts ago. I've turned it into a shawl. I was having issues with the quality of the yarn, Lion Brand Wool-Ease. I don't plan on buying that brand again any time soon. Maybe for toys or smaller items, but definitely not a sweater.

Cold Hands pg15

I've been listening to An Horse's new album, "Walls." I think it's fantastic. This past Tuesday, I saw them live for the first time. I've been to other shows, but it's always been to see bands my guy likes. And I like most of the music my guy likes, not all, but most. Anyways, it's funny how I first came across this band. Funny because there's a Harry Potter connection. I was in the process of discovering Wizard Rock when I found the artist, The Hermione Crookshanks Experience. The girl of that name, Kristine Tuna, as a part of non-Harry Potter songs she recorded, made a cover of an An Horse song. And that was that. Loves An Horse.
