Holy cow! What a wild ride the last several weeks have been! I have been so busy with school and finals that I had to schedule time to shower and eat (and sadly, I had to remind myself to include these things in my days). I didn’t even get a real chance to enjoy the Magical Holiday Blog Hop! I popped in when I could and saw a lot of really great things but wish I had been able to invest more time. I hope all of you enjoyed it though! Because I have been missing in action here on my blog for so long and because I wasn’t able to keep up with the hop I am having a new sale in my Etsy shop. From now until Christmas I am offering free shipping on my Skull Cameos. This only applies to the cameos and to US shipping (sorry friends from other lands… I can’t afford free shipping outside of the US right now). To get free US shipping on Skull Cameos enter coupon code “cameo” at checkout. Oh! And just to incase you missed it, here is a look at my Etsy treasury again; there are a lot of great artist and some fun gift ideas here.

I am glad this term is now over! I haven’t worked so hard since I was desperately trying to defeat algebra in my first year of school. I must say it was worth it though… I learned so much that I am pretty sure I went up at hat size (that could be this dry, cold winter weather making a mockery of my naturally curly hair though).
Although my Fundamentals of Web Design class was hard I have to say that Graphic Illustration is the one that had me frothing at the mouth in fear of losing my straight A student status. The project we worked on throughout class had to be a book or magazine cover and it had to be illustrated in Adobe Illustrator with no use of Photoshop filters. I decide to design a book cover for my creative writing group as I hope to self-publish a collection of our stories for the group at our one year mark.
It was an arduous process and I had a lot of challenges with making Illustrator do what I wanted it to do but I am pretty happy with the end result. There are still some changes that I will probably make before it comes time to publish the collection (If I really get to do that) but here is a gander at my finished illustration.
I am keeping my fingers crossed for an easier first session this term so I have time to keep up here and with my personal artwork. Don’t forget! Use coupon code “cameo” for free shipping on all skull cameos in my Etsy shop now through Christmas Eve!
