I haven't updated this blog for a while. The beginning of the year sure was rocky for me, and very busy, what with my beloved kitty Stimpy dying on me right before Christmas, then getting a new kitten in early January (I didn't want to wait, since loving a new kitten helped distract me from it all) and dealing with the many health issues this new kitten brought along. He had to take many medicines for over a month, but is now a very healthy (and naughty!) little devil. His name is Sweeney and here is a photo of him:
Doesn't he look crazy? That's because he is!!
That aside, I've been working on tons of stuff. I'm illustrating two books at the moment, and have a deadline for them, which is also why you haven't seen much of me in recent weeks.
The book series is called Gumpchy the Little Baha'i Bear. Here are some of the characters from these books:

I hope you enjoy looking at them. Remember that you can see more in this folder of my deviantART gallery.
I leave you with a little .GIF of my sweet ol' Stimpy begging for treats:
This was one of the cutest things he ever did. Sometimes, if there was a little lizard or gecko walking on the ceiling, he would do this too, looking at the ceiling, as if asking the gecko to come down from there and allow himself to be eaten!
We loved him SO much. I am glad that he was mine and miss him like you can't imagine. :'(
Talk to you all soon,
