I have 2 more to show from previous sketches a few posts back. my scanner is a little short and it has cut off a bit of the illustration on the top and bottom. i have tried my best of crop these as interesting as possible given the challenge. I did get a chance to come in and scan everything this weekend so I'm pretty excited to only have 2 finials to finish and 12 more frames to complete. then its off to putting these guys in a zine for the show. I talked to a friend today about ebay frames, woo, there are some really nice Victorian frames for super cheap. thanks for the info, i think i might shop around for frames next time before starting such a weirdly shaped format.
so wish me luck this weekend is frames weekend, if i have all my fingers Monday I'll post some pics!

Lilly with her halo of shame
most of the 13 pieces, still due 3, a cover design for the zine and stories to go along. wee the month has been going by fast.
bad evil jigsaw blade
progress to frames
Okay, well had a few crazy past weeks. Lilly my dog ate a nail in front of me we had to remove it surgically, now shes wearing a scar and a bad girl halo of loud annoying plastic. I have been trying to find a way that is cheap enough to do the framing of all the 13 pieces for the December art show that is quickly approaching. well i shopped around, had (framer) someone picked, then bam money to the dog doctor. So i can kind of thank Lilly in this ironic way, because i have actually come up with a plan to make pretty cool frames on the cheap. so i liberated my dog of a nail, she liberated me of my framing funds, as well as pushed me to create what i felt i couldn't previously (diy frames). so i guess double good comes of double bad. Here are a few picks that i have taken of my progress with the frames. the frames are around a 1.45 ft tall, with the window area to fit a 9x13 illustration. I think its time to stick in a movie and start concepting the final 3.
