A little break

Monday, August 22, 2011

As many projects come to conclusion all at once, the studio has become a busy tumbleweed world! Even in the MOST busy times, it's important to get away, even for a little bit. Just long enough for a quick tea party last week:

(thanks to talented illustrator friend, Ellen!)

and urban seal spying:

Amanda captures his reflection, he's such a little ghost!

Seal belly!

(Thanks to illustrator lady, Amanda for the pics!)

I couldn't help but think of the "selkie" story, when one of the seals swam close and looked at us with those eerie deep brown eyes...This beautiful movie, one of my ALL time favorites, tells the selkie tale so well:

Back to work!

Aw, I'm glad you had a nice time (I did too)! We should definitely plan a fall tea outing! Thanks for the shout-out :)

I HAVE to watch the selkie movie! I'm pretty sure that that is the one in the previews on my Little Women vhs. haha!

I'm still crying inside that I missed tea. However, I did get to watch an entire season and a half of Mad Men. :)
I hope we can plan another time to all hang out again :)

Yes, fall tea sounds fantastic! We missed you (and Kate too!) Renee...
hope you're feeling better.

I loved that movie all growing up! Glad to see there are other fans!
