Ok, I must have lied. I can't believe I had forgotten all about a piece I was working on. I definitely think this could be considered a swarm.

An interesting way to go about illustrating is letting chance take the wheel. I was stuck one day, so I just started spattering tea on a piece of paper. I didn't know what to do with it afterward, until a week or two later when I noticed they kind of looked like jellyfish. And that's that. Most of the time when I get to drawing, I never know what I am going to come up with. It's always a surprise.

And this was quite a nice surprise!

It's good to stay busy.

So, I can't for the life of me figure out what to do with "Swarm" this week. It almost seems like there hasn't been any time to think of what to draw (as I have never regurgitated artwork for the sake of posting. Hot off the press is my style for Illustration Friday.)

I've been totally consumed with my work this week! I can't even work on my personal portfolio, jeez. The restaurant I work for has moved me to a higher rung this past week. I am now their in-house graphic designer/Office Manager. Pretty good for only having started out as a hostess at the beginning of January, eh? Heather is moving up in the world! Awwwwyeassssss... can someone say salary?

I am now juggling a few different things. Revamping a restaurant's image, my portfolio, Illustration Friday, the 100 Themes Challenge, and my first ever comic with a good friend.
Check out his blog, he's got great work,
He'll be writing, and I will be drawing.

I'd like to revamp my website as well. Let's just put that on the list.
It's a bit too.. garish? Is that the word? I'm thinking a more relaxed color scheme. Also, I made this over a year ago, so it's definitely time for a redesign.
It's good to stay busy.

Oop, I just thought of something for Illustration Friday. Let's see if I have time...
