I have posted a new item for sale on my website and my Zazzle Store.
This is a delightful series of illustrations depicting an awkward elephant dancing gracefully across your mug or your wall.
The Mug can be found at my Zazzle Store.

Within one week I was to take years of course development and put them online. On top of this I started homeschooling my children, I continued to try to get illustration work, and my books published, received more rejections and I, with so many others, are doing our best to navigate a world pandemic.
That can all be rather overwhelming.
I have many things I do to stay calm in situations like this. I pray a lot. I am slowing down and spending more time with my family. I try to help others by reaching out to others to lift them up.
I also make time to work on personal projects. One of the benefits of working on personal projects is they are stress relieving. There is no purpose for these illustrations, other than to have fun and explore the challenge of fitting things into a square. When I finish each one I just feel happy.
Releasing stress and finding joy is just one of the benefits of working on personal projects regularly.

I just completed a series of mixed media drawings of a dancing Blue-Footed Booby for the 2x2 exhibit in the Quimby Gallery. I also put them on a mug that can be purchased at my Zazzle Store
The original 7 drawings are available for purchase at my store on my website or you can purchase a limited edition print of all of them together.
The Blue-Footed Booby can be found along the western coasts of Central and South America from the Gulf of California to Peru. Many can be found nesting on the Galapagos Islands.
