Wowee, my Moonrise Kingdom paper doll portrait post certainly exploded. I’m not sure who I have to thank for that, but thanks!!!
To anyone who has followed me because of it, or is wondering about it, it’s the first of a series of 4 portraits I’m making for a local cafe called Snakes & Lattes. I’m working on the second portrait right now, so it’s going a bit slow I suppose…but I wanted to say that it will be for sale eventually, just not right now. I will be listing it in my etsy shop when it is for sale, and you can find that here: my etsy shop! but of course there is always the chance that someone might buy it from the cafe, in which case I won’t be uploading it to etsy…but I have scanned in the paper doll pieces so I can print out versions of them and make a smaller portrait with a more simple background.
Oh and just to clarify, not all four portraits will be Moonrise Kingdom, they will all be different subjects…rather random ones at that. I’m working on a bioshock infinite one now, then Dr Who, and finally Aliens (with xenomorph and ripley…perhaps an appearance of Jonesy)
I want to say something exciting but I don’t want to jinx it because it’s not totally official yet. But things are looking up!
In other news, today I handed out a bunch of resumes and am actually going for an interview tomorrow morning!
Everywhere I handed out resumes was in my local neighbourhood, so I really hope something pans out. The furthest place I applied to is a plant shop, which is just a pop up until the end of June, but I love gardening so it would be fun working there. Ahhhh I really hope something works out!
Wow I so do not want to shower, get dolled up and go hand out resumes today. I just want to roll around in the dirt (fixing up my garden).
I bought my tomato plants yesterday and this morning an animal had dug up one of the little pots! Of course it was the tomatoes I’m most excited for…indigo rose, a totally black tomato. I think one plant is ok, the other is still wilted, but I think it just needs more time to recuperate. Hopefully that doesn’t happen again tonight? Maybe I’ll bring them inside for the night. II’m not planting them just yet.
