Fungi and sniffles

Submitted Bolt Fabric Assignment
My first week of Lilla Rogers' eCourse (Make Art That Sells) is winding down now. It was enlightening while challenging. I'm in LOVE with fabric designing and I'll most certainly begin exploring this area later this summer. For now I've got to get through weeks 2-5 and the LA SCBWI Conference - one focus at a time right now!

Probably the most challenging bit was suffering through another cold, while juggling the work-load. What is this? #3 or 4 this year? It was the type of distraction which could derail creativity.... Could, but didn't. I did drift off to sleep thinking of the assignments very often, so there are some things I failed to capture just due to the fatigue. Of course a giant head cold strikes as soon as I've got to busy myself with a looming deadline! 

Blah!

Well I'm surviving. I'm pretty sure the cold is starting to taper. At least I got SOME rest this weekend. I've been sneaking extra "Zzz's" into all of my late afternoons and early evenings, whenever I can. I predict I'll have all 5 senses back in play and little to no fogginess wearing me down by Thursday. At least I hope clears.

Speaking of the "foggies," below are some of of my sketches and another version of the design I was trying out.
Mushroom and Casserole Dish Sketches.

Working Version of kitchen fabric design.

The rest of my evening will be filled with celebrating my Father's Birthday and the line work on my next postcard. I may be able to squeeze in another nap as well... we'll see!
