flu

somehow i got sick again & i would love to say that this time was also "life's way of telling me to slow down" & that in a way i enjoyed it. but i was on a deadline for a book, so the moment i emerged from my 102 degree fever, i had to get back to painting. there was no tea, movies, books, pjs or rest....just non-restful sleep & then working through the awfulness, wishing i had a day or two to just stay in bed like i needed. oh, the freelance life.

the good thing about maintaining momentum despite being sick is that after I finished my 14 illustrations for the book I was working on (and a few of them bigger than I've worked in years! yay!) I felt all motivated to keep working, and ended up designing a ton of new pocket mirrors for my website using artwork I've made recently that nobody's seen:



they're on the website now (the image links). hooray productivity!

still, i do still need some time out. sunday is persian new year, next week is the AIGA conference and michael's birthday, the week after we're throwing a big party ("the worst party ever" - more about this later.) so: no break anytime soon.

unrelated: i had a dream last night that i was helping robert pollard with lyrics to his songs, and at first it was really awesome but then he started getting clingy and needy and annoying.
