My good friend [personal profile] reymonkey recently adopted a new kitten, who has sadly fallen ill. The kitty has been taken to the vet and put on antibiotics, which should have her feeling better in a few days, but Rey could use some help with paying the bill. Please check out her Etsy shop for art prints, wrist warmers, and hand-made jewelry, or consider commissioning some artwork!

The number of new pictures I have to add to my database (not to mention the state of my sent mail folder) would seem to indicate that I've been far from idle over the past month...but I've failed miserably at tracking and delivering perks for StorySketches. Urk. I must fix that!

I posted an update to Teddy's Travels yesterday (which no one has commented on *sadface*), and I should have an update to Mother-Tongue sometime tomorrow. The next new sketch will be from Karen Wehrstein's Philosopher in Arms. Next icon draw will be, actually, I might as well just do it now. Congrats to [personal profile] alee_grrl and [ profile] wyld_dandelyon! I'll PM you after I post this in case you don't see it.

Something else I'm far behind on is reading the entries on my reading/friends page, but I notice that voting has started for several categories of this year's Rose and Bay awards. I also notice that one of you[personal profile] aldersprig nominated me for the art category. *blushes* Thank you!

Go vote for your favourite crowdfunded projects in the categories of:

Lots of crowdfunding stuff going on this weekend!

[personal profile] aldersprig is holding her monthly Giraffe Call and taking prompts with the theme of "In the City". She has written The Origins of Smokey Knoll to my first prompt, and several donation targets have already been met, so now I have to think of another one!

It's Muse Fusion time at [ profile] torn_world. You don't have to be a Torn World member to participate! Suggested themes for prompts this month include "Fashions and Fads" and "Critters of Land and Sea", but any Torn World related questions or ideas are welcome!

The third Crowdfunding Creative Jam is this weekend, with members of the crowdfunding communities on livejournal and dreamwidth taking prompts with the theme of "Disabled People (visibly and invisibly disabled)"! [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith has posted the poem Why Autistics Make Good Friends in response to one of my prompts, and she has written a Monster House poem related to another one, which can be sponsored for $10.

Update: The kickstarter campaign for Lorelei has a Dream is doing well, and has already reached 19% of its $9000 goal, after less than two days! Thanks to all who have participated so far!

I will be boarding a plane later tonight to go visit my family, and will be returning on Jan 18. As usual, I will be bringing my laptop, but I may be a bit slower to respond to messages due to the presence of live people.

The 48-hour SketchFest was quite a success! I did 12 paintings for it — enough to make up for missing last month. Coat of Arms has already sold, so I'll be cleaning it up to print, and copies of all the others are available through the SketchFest site.

lots of pictures under cut )

In case you missed it, I did a guest post at [community profile] poetree On Illustrating Poetry on Friday last week, with some commentary on each of the poem-based Story Sketches I've done so far. Comments on this post will be counted toward this week's icon draw! (Which I'm postponing for a couple of days since I didn't give you any art to comment on until now. :P)

The [community profile] crowdfunding community is seeking nominations in six categories for this year's Rose & Bay awards. If you know of any great crowdfunding projects, feel free to suggest them! Personally, I'd love to see more people and projects from outside lj/dreamwidth get involved in this!

Speaking of crowdfunding, [personal profile] aldersprig has a new idea for a project involving mini-stories on postcards!

[personal profile] ariestess 's monthly one-card-draw is open for a couple more hours (until 8PM PST). She's got a few decks to choose from, and donors are entered into a draw for a more in-depth reading.

[personal profile] aldersprig is taking prompts for this month's Giraffe Call! The theme this time is "Gifts, gifts, and the gifted".

[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith has posted a list of newly sponsored poetry that's now available to read. I think the Monster House poem Lurking is my favourite from this set. I love how accepting the family is of all the oddities that share their home.

[personal profile] alexandraerin started Book 3 of Tales of MU volume 2 with the return of Some kind of ridiculous owl-turtle thing. I'm hoping that means we'll be seeing more of Dee and Two in this book.

[ profile] chaoticidealism is wondering how to participate in a conversation without interrupting. This is something I've struggled with, myself, so any advice from the more socially capable among you will be appreciated!

And, finally: I have learned that there is a recording of David Tennant and Catherine Tate in Much Ado About Nothing. Let the *squee*-ing commence!
