Hi everybody! How are you? I hope you’re all enjoying the summer!
I know, I know…I just realized it’s been 6 months since my last post. Well..LOTS has happened in that time. Some great, some not so much. The year started with a death in the family and taking care of family business, but we also had a new family addition and I became an auntie again, yay! And then in March I had a little heart surgery.
The surgery was planned and I kept it on the down low because I didn’t want you to worry! I had to fix an ‘electric wiring’ issue that would make my heart suddenly speed up to 230 beats per minute (give or take) without warning! After two super scary ER trips I kinda had enough and decided to go with what is called a ‘cardiac ablation’.
I can happily report that it went well and I’m past three months recovery without any issues. Knock, knock, knock!
What it’s supposed to look like…much better.
Yay, dark little heart! Now with extra scar tissue!
So if you’ve been wondering about the state of my film project, why the delay in film production/updates, now you know! Yes, Things We Dig is still in the works! Never give up, never surrender!!! I don’t have any specific shoot dates or more exact info yet, but I wanted to let you know the wheels have started grinding again, slowly but surely!
So, I have been keeping busy with a few things while healing…
In barbarian warrior mode while recovering from surgery…of course I had to find ways to stay creative…somehow, be it photography or painting!
Speaking of warriors….
San Diego Comic-Con is next week and as usual, I have my annual “Her Dark Half” offerings for the Art Show. You can find out the when/where and other details on the FB event invite. I will have six original art pieces up for grabs! Sorry, not prints…yet.
A partial sneak peek of two of my little warriors (watercolor and ink)
For the 3rd and last time, I am dedicating this year’s series, titled ‘Warriors‘, to Anxiety and Depression Awareness. Read the story behind the original inspiration here.
Like the last 2 years, I will donate 10% of each original painting’s final bid/sale at the SDCC Art Show’s silent auction to TWLOHA :)
Going all out with tiny 3D capes for my little warrior heroes!
Can’t leave out the kitties and tentacles, of course!
That’s it for now!
Have a great weekend, hug somebody, and hope
to see you at San Diego Comic-Con!
kisses, besos, küsse,
