You've got to get up to get free

It's just true. I listened to Miranda July being interviewed on the Bookworm podcast the other day. She was talking about how she's so prolific because basically, if she wasn't she would never get out of bed. I'm the same way. I've been staying busy and getting out of bed. The fall is here ( or was, what's up with the 90 degree weather today?!) and I'm trying my hardest not to back into bed, slowly get more nervous until it isn't worry, it's anxiety and it's actually taken over my life. Kind of like last year.

I think I can do it.

sick cats and re-mixes and shows

Lenny the cat is sick. He may have something (the vet suggested a peach pit?) blocking his intestines. Or, he may have chewed on a toxic plant while vacationing at Alan's parent's house last week. Either way, it's totally heart breaking to see the Len-man being so lethargic. He was hardly moving unless it was to barf up the water he drank.

We went to the vet today and he's going to be there until Wednesday probably. Maybe Saturday if he needs surgery. Hard times are hard.

On a lighter note - I finally finished my drawings for the re-done version of the Six Pack teeny tiny zine I did with Mandy Laughtland. I'm actually glad I had to re-do it, it looks so much better this time! So, you can get your free copy of this teeny tiny beer themed illustrated poetry zine soon enough. Ask me for one. It's yours. Free.

I have a show on www.artforemptywalls.com for November. I need to have 8 pieces done by October 15th. I'm working on something today. I'm not sure what they'll all be. Or if anyone will buy them at all. But, whatevs!

oh, hey

SO, I'm thinking I'm going to try and do this. To blog, normally. The goal would be to primarily write about art things. Or just stuff I'm making. I'm sure I'll write a lot about my apartment that doesn't have a kitchen sink, Lenny the cat, and beautiful dogs, though.

Anyway, I was trying to think of a good name for my re-done (remixed?) web presence. The best thing I could come up with was Lavender Cats. I'll let you in on how I thought of this name -
My walls are painted lavender, and I used lavender body wash and shampoo and I really like cats.

It's hard for me to make up new, cool names for myself because I don't really need to. My name is fine. Anyway, whatever. Lavender Cats.
