Illustration Friday: Confined

Initially I thought I'd bore you with some kind of story about being stuck in my house for 7 days without a glimmer of the outside world while getting over the flu last week - but I'm moving on!

Recently I had a huge breakthrough with my art and process that is blowing my mind. It is as if all of the knowledge I've collected over the past 10 years strangely came together one ordinary afternoon. Ideas that had been confined to the deepest recesses of my gray matter suddenly shook themselves loose and made themselves known.

I'm still not quite over the shock, and I am still sorting through all of this new information - but it is an amazing feeling and is infusing me with energy and excitement about art-making again.

More soon....

Awesome, Miss J.!!! That is such a great feeling isn't it? At least that's how I remember it was when it happened to me, like, 487 years ago! Longest gestation period of my life! Jeesh! Can't wait to see what comes of all of this! And I bet the people at "the institution" will be mighty curious too. ;)

Would you ever consider making this age into a print? Would love it fir inspiration in my home office (or maybe at work).
