restless 4am creating

I woke up at 4am this morning with the need to get drawing after kicking myself in the butt last night with my pieces for Once Upon ... I think I am going to make it! Not so stressed now.
The development and scanning begins

I am home. And judging from my mail waiting for me, I have been in Australia a year. Went fast! I have started to scan the negatives from the photos I took while I was away. So far, I only have the black and white films. See the rest of the images either on Lomography or Flickr
Didn't realise what day it was...

I realised just two days ago that I was flying out on Wednesday, not Thursday. Stupid. Makes me feel like the time is too short now to do what I want to do (mainly see people). We go to Paris tomorrow.
I started really working on the pieces for Once Upon, and am feeling better about them. The first one was a warm up I guess. So above is a little sneak preview. Back to work, Paris awaits and I'm not sure how much work I am going to do there. Probably, if i am realistic, none.
Carl Stalling influences moleskine creation

I am in my second week in France. I have finished this moleskine and am almost done with Kerstin's. I still haven't started my "Three Billy goats Gruff" for the Once Upon Exhibition. In fact it is stewing in my head and I am starting to get a little stressed about it. I bought some paper to start it the other day, and I think I am going to have to buy some other paper, as I am concerned about the size and that I'll go overboard and forget it needs to be A5. So, starting with an A5 to begin with is a better idea. In between those thoughts, we have Finders Keepers and the organisation of my stall, items and the thing hanging over my head... public liability insurance. I don't understand what people could do on a stall of art, perhaps poke their eye out with a postcard? I find the whole not taking responsibility for your own actions baffling, but that is how it is.
It is starting to get a bit stressful that my Etsy store is closed too... I think I am going to reopen it soon.

Feel like I have been sitting in the house since getting to France. At least I can draw and paint without people asking me what I am doing. Bonus!
