to the ink-well


illustration at the Morgan, NY - Jane Austen
Alas, the New Year is here. Happy 2010 to each of you. I am writing my resolutions right now to myself.
Much like Jane Austen, I am looking for wit, wisdom and a bit of good humor this year.
I want my work to reflect that too, like the drawings from Babar, the early drafts and watercolors. There is something quite fun and whimsical and wise about the work of "Barcelo" which I adore. To the ink-well I go with my head in my hands and my heart in my work.
Wishing each of you a wonderfully witty 2010.

A New Year- a new canvas {words from PrairieGirl but so appropriate}-a perfect time to reflect, edit, and look upon this as a whole new chapter. I for one am full of hope and optimism for this-the New Year. Happy New Year Patricia.

Happy New Year ~ a new year's resolution... read more books. Am now reading "The Help," which you highly recommended. And I'm also reading "Sheparding a Child's Heart" by Tedd Tripp. I can't wait to see more works from you.

I love your inspirations. We can learn a lot from the illustrator of Babar, n'est ce pas. I am taking a short graphic novel course later this month. I will go to it as an absolute beginner and treat it purely as an experiment. Watch this space!

Happy New Year, and thank you for stopping by my humble blog! I wanted to drop you a comment to say that I recognized your work in one of my favorite Greenwich shops/designers the other day...Sandra Morgan. I felt like a dope because I enthusiastically exclaimed "oh, that's PVE's work!".LOL I look forward to the day I can employ your services for a project!! Your images just radiate joy.
