Today was my first day off in what seems like an excruciatingly long time. I have started a new job as an assistant printer at a letterpress which is replacing my former part time job at a children's bookstore. In the overlap, I have been working both jobs and been trying to squeeze in my freelance work in the night time. Basically, today was the end of the overlap and back my normal part-time life.
I told myself I would do nothing but read today. Instead I suddenly was struck with the urge to do a small triptych I'm now referring to my "Domestic Trio". I was thinking about black animals in shelters. They are less likely to get adopted because they are more likely to blend in and people have a hard time seeing them. So I created some homely little black animals that I now love.
Can you tell that I am painfully lacking both a cat and a dog...
soon, soon I tell myself.
