where have I been? + chamois cat

So it's been a while, right? I haven't updated this blog since July, which is just... wow. I'm sure the two people who were still reading it in October have stopped by now, so maybe I'm just shouting into the void here, but despite all outward appearances I have no intention of letting this blog fade away - so where have I been?

Kind of a long story. I'll just give you the Cliffs Notes version. I think I mentioned on the blog that I was illustrating a series of kids' chapter books last year - my deadline for everything was the end of August. So that's what I was doing until 11:59 pm on August 31st. (I kid. I actually finished a few days early. Also, more on this soon-ish.) It was a busy time. Bee-like. But where'd I go after that?

Oh boy. Let's just say there was some big time medical badness and I almost died. Like for real almost died, not "uggggh I'm so tired I could die." But I didn't! So yay for that. I spent a long time in the hospital (33 days!) and an even longer time recovering. It's been 4 months and I'm still recovering, honestly. Not to get all whatever on the cutesy picture blog but the tail end of 2012 was pretty much the worst of the worst of everything ever and it's going to be a long time until I'm "back to normal." But I'm worlds better now than I was, certainly well enough to draw and update this blog more than twice a year. (Seriously I am the worst.)

So that's where I've been. Living the dream and then living the nightmare. But I'm back from the dead (she jokes) and one of my new year's not-really-resolutions-because-resolutions-are-doomed-to-fail is to draw more regularly for fun, so I'm hoping to post here at least once a week. HOPING. We'll see how that goes.

ANYWAY. Let's move on to something more pleasant, shall we?

Like Chamois Cat! Chamois Cat is something my boyfriend and I made up that is probably amusing to absolutely no one else, but it makes me laugh every time I think about it.

CHAMOIS CAT COMETH. To wash your car. Or dust your hardwood floors. Whatever! Chamois Cat just wants to help.
