A Sneak Peek at Dragons & more

First up last week's winner of the HAED poll was Snow White's Fall. It was really close with only one point dividing the top 3!!! So look for Unicorn LP and Fairy Ball to make appearances in future polls before the year is out.

I have a bit of a treat if you will. A sneak peek at the latest page of Dragons I a working on. As per the usual (you'd think I'd learn after 4 years on this project) I'm taking longer to complete the page than predicted. So here's a teaser for where the page is at. It's about 75% done and I do plan on putting in some major time with it this weekend. It's a long weekend in Canada so I'm stoked to get to it tomorrow and hopefully the next two days after that. But without further ado here is the sneak peek:

In personal news: I've been really liking my new job. It's a very systematic process of things I do. And none of the 'disasters' are all that disaster like (at least in comparison to the reactions people would have to designing). After 4 weeks of working there it is looking like (I say guardedly) one of the best decisions I've ever made. It, of course, still has it's people issues and some stress but nothing like what I was dealing with as an Art Director.
And so what has that meant for me as a whole? I am feeling so much better! Probably the best I've felt in about 2.5 years, since before my emergency surgery (that may of you were on the rocky road for). It's been a roller coaster but I feel like I'm finally nearing the end. *happy dance*
Coming up in the next few days: more work on dragons, more bracelets going up on my store this weekend and a finish that I want to "really finish" before I share it with everyone.
Thank you for visiting!

The sneak peak of your dragon looks lovely. The colours are gorgeous.

I'm so pleased that you are enjoying your new job. We spend so much time at work that it can be awful if there isn't any 'fun' in it.
