End of 2014 Round-Up

In case you don’t follow me on Instagram (@werdygirl), here’s a brief summary of what I’ve been up to in the past few months:

Locust Moon AND the Philly Zine Fest were at the Rotunda…both great events at a cool space.

The Locust Moon Fest was pretty fun! I had a good time selling my humble mini-comics and zines and I got to meet and chat with lots of people.

This was my table at the Philly Zine Fest.

Note to self: Make the table more welcoming– get a freakin’ table cloth for next time, at least.

I took an observational oil painting class a few weeks ago. These are the two paintings I did. This one is in an earth tone palette.

This is a complimentary red/green palette. I admit, this picture is not great but you get the idea. Oil painting was really interesting and I plan to play around with it a bit more.

I may have started a new tradition this year: make homemade Christmas Eve pierogis from scratch.

Moose has been hanging out.

Doctor Teeth has been hanging out with his new favorite toy.

I spent part of Christmas hanging out with my cat-in-law, Mickey. (He’s 22 lbs!)

I did some Christmas knitting for my mom, which I didn’t take any pictures of. This is the start of two pairs of socks for Sam –just because. I want to finish these up promptly so I can get on with my 2015 resolution: knit 7 pairs of socks for myself. I would like to have a weeks’ work of handmade new handmade socks for next winter. If I keep a steady pace, I will need to make one sock (not one pair of socks) every 3.7 weeks. I was going to settle for 6 socks, since I have one pair I’ve made for myself…but, go big and stay home, right?

This is my new favorite pencil from Cat and Girl, one of my favorite comics. It also summarizes some of the general feelings I’ve been facing this year as I try to figure out what I want to be and do when I grow up.

I’ve been doing some other things that are pretty awesome but I’ll be sharing those with people in 2015. Overall, 2014 was a good year and I’m excited for what’s next.
