Sure enough

I forgot to stop to snap a picture or two before I packaged up the scarf.

Here are a couple of pictures I drew to compensate for the lack of scarf pictures.

A chipper little genie I drew for my sister.

How very scary!

Now I’m off to do homework. 

Been busy

October 25, 2008 in Uncategorized by KellyJacobi

I’ve been pretty busy this week with work and school. Last weekend I went to visit my lovely friend at A&M and have been playing a bit of catch-up this week.

These past few days I’ve been busy crocheting a scarf for my little cousin. I’ll post a picture of it up if I remember to take one before sending it off.

Here are a few drawings I did before my trip to College Station.

Story pending

“The sea witches of the far north sea were feared more than the raging storms that came rolling into the jagged shore. They would lure maidens away from the safety of the village and seduce them with tales of power and freedom amid the rocks and waves. As soon as the young women let the tide wash over their skin the witches bound them up in their wild hair, stealing them away from the lives they once lived.”

Meet Edmund. He’s a mischievous little crow.

Long overdue.

I apologize again for my long absence. I’m working hard to remedy the situation.

First I’ll update on what I’ve received from my wonderful friend at A&M.

This is a beautiful drawing my friend sent me of a window. It reads “Imagine what lies outside…”

She also sent a lovely boondoggle that reads “Life is for living,” and has an interesting rock attached to the end, it looks like an arrowhead.

 

I’ve also prepared quite a few things to send out. Here are a couple of sneaky mice that will be traveling to their new homes over the next few days.

That’s all I’ll post of these special packages for the time being, I don’t want to spoil anyone’s surprise.

I also sent out a post card quite some time ago to my post-pal over in Australia.

“As Randolph stood in the elevator he repeated his mantra aloud, “I will succeed in this endeavor.” It was the day of his big meeting with the future. He had done all he could to prepare: he practiced his greeting and etiquette, wore his best suit, and had attempted to get a full night’s rest. An upward glance at the slowly increasing numbers made Randolph realize the present was precious.”

And a quick update:The sheep has been named Barnaby, and has been entered into a student show at school.

All apologies

Sorry for my absence, I’ve been in a bit of a slump. Many thanks to my glorious friend at A&M for helping rid me of that horrid fog that’s been clouding my mind for the past couple of weeks.

I’ve been doing a bit of drawing, not nearly as much as I ought to be doing though. I’ll get to it ASAP.

Before I fell into my malaise I managed to squeeze out a little picture to send to my friend out in Utah.“Time, the devourer of all things.”
-Ovid

I have a deck (of sorts) of cards that have pretty patterns on one side, and letters on the other. I chose a G card, and drew a little ‘perfect’ girl, with a rather heavy quote from Ovid floating above her head.
I’m not really quite sure of her relation to the quote. Does she understand it? Is she thinking about it? Is she too simple to comprehend it?
Looks can be deceiving.
