>Society of Illustrators paperwork, files and framing. Got the paperwork and files done. Check completed. Got the image to my pal who is a registrar at a local museum who understands the whole web of framing, shipping and what is acceptable or not. I am blessed to know this person. This is an arena frought with monsters.
>Ditto on Illustration West 46. Did you know that the work stays on the web for 2 years...that's the show. Impressive.
>Memento Mori with Steuben is on. They picked 4 designs. Awaiting detail. It is going to be breakneck turnaround when they get focused on it. No problem here. There are tweaks like make it bigger and smaller. That's it. I feel relatively unscathed.
>Got 2 bookplates I have been working with Anne Bialke on out to PSPrint to be made into stickers for a new collection at the library for children in memory of Sally Sutcliffe. Anne did a beautiful black and white illustration in both horizontal and vertical formats of a mother loon and her babies. The secret to this is that the mothers often ride the babies on their backs. Too perfect. And Anne's line work is exquisite. I am honored. And, to beat our chests for a moment, she is a full time SU graduate from the tribe of Murray. Wha Who! We should see them in 12-14 days...no rush...
The great thing about PSPrint is that after having a delivery wobble, they had amazing customer service offering reprints at no charge etc...doing a ton of the tracking etc. Takes the randomness of this on demand to another level with service like they offered. I am impressed.
> Pat Cozzarin, known as Pat the Bug Man, former NYS gymnastics champion came today to see what he could see about the critters who scrabble between the rafters for the nuts they laid in. Makes sleeping a sleepless activity--with the anticipation of what is happening next. Grey Squirrels, not the nasty Red ones...thankfully. Traps have been laid. Lets see how fast we can catch them.
Need to go. We had Tburg basketball tonight. K has all of her clothes inside out in the wishing for a big snowstorm.News is:
CT SNOW ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT EST TUESDAY NIGHT.
OCCASIONAL LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS AND SQUALLS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE AREA TONIGHT. SNOWFALL RATES WILL OCCASIONALLY REACH 1 INCH PER HOUR. THIS SNOW...COMBINED WITH NORTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH WILL CAUSE BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF SNOW...WITH NEAR WHITEOUT CONDITIONS AT TIMES. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT.
BY EARLY TUESDAY MORNING...SNOWFALL OF 3 TO 6 INCHES IS EXPECTED.
LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE...BUT WILL BE WEAKER IN INTENSITY ON TUESDAY. SNOW WILL FINALLY BEGIN TO TAPER OFF LATE TUESDAY EVENING. ADDITIONAL LIGHT SNOW ACCUMULATION IS POSSIBLE ON TUESDAY... WITH TOTAL SNOWFALL BY LATE TUESDAY EVENING OF 4 TO 8 INCHES EXPECTED.
I think K has a chance. Don't you?
