I had one of those days where every chore I took on seemed to take forever to finish, then when I had time to work on something creative I just couldn’t seem to focus. Instead, I ended up cleaning up my work space since my drawing table often becomes a “dumping ground” for things that…
Pigeon in Progress
In January, I asked people to suggest and then vote on what my pigeon character’s name should be. Holly Moser suggested the name that ended up getting the most votes, so she wins a portrait of: Percival Featherington III! I have begun working on the prize… and decided to show off some of the preliminary…
Who Do You Love?
I have three new Valentines on offer in The Nancydraws Shop. I knew I wanted to feature Percival Featherington III, Brooklyn pigeon extraordinaire, but I also wanted cards for pigeons… I mean… persons of every persuasion. To keep things simple, I’ve swapped in same-sex pigeons where applicable. Did you know that pigeons are excellent actors?…
Blog Swap: Eat Your Beans!

Road trip greeting card
One of my fellow volunteers at God’s Love We Deliver, Jicky, has been planning to leave on a year-long, cross-country road trip this month and another fellow volunteer asked if I would create a custom card for her send-off party that the rest of the volunteers could sign. Luckily, Jicky had already e-mailed me a…

It Was a Dark and Bloggy Night
I decided to indulge a short-attention span fit by checking out some gallery openings in Chelsea tonight. I had heard that Patti Smith was having an opening tonight. I’ve never seen her artwork, so that was my other inspiration to get out there. (The prospect of free wine doesn’t hurt, either.) Not only do you…
I didn’t write the following paragraph, it is from my horoscope today on DailyOm.com. I thought it deserved to be here as it is a good thing to keep in mind every day. When we approach our objectives with the notion that success is in our future, we naturally feel more confident and are more…
