Dude, 103 Followers?!

 
Y'all, sometime earlier this week, Apassionata hit 100 followers.
 
ONE HUNDRED!
 
And now that lovely little GFC followers box reads three over.
 
Wowzas.
 
I guess I never thought this blog would develop such an audience.
 
Soooooo....thank you, guys. Gracias, all you wonderful, amazing peoples who have supported me and my erratic little blog here.
 
As a little meager thank-you, I'm sharing with you some recent illustrations for an art commission I've been hired to do - it's a children's book!
 
 
^This one is my favorite so far. I used some new Prismacolor illustration pens I bought with some birthday money, and this was also the first skunk I'd ever drawn!
 


 
I've been thankful for this commission opportunity. It's been fun and interesting to work on a different style than I usually do. I'm not one to typically do cartoons and the like, since I prefer the classic beauty of realism in art. But, this project? It's been a blast so far!
 
It's always good to try new things. To branch out.
 
{ some of my favorite things lately }
 
♥ Listening to oldies music.
♥ Trying to swing dance.
♥ Trying to do the Charleston...it's actually a lot harder than it looks!
♥ Visits/shopping with Grandma.
♥ Writing in If Dante Had Wings.
♥ Spanish.
♥ Radiometric dating research.
♥ Watching my brothers' baseball games.
♥ Chatting with my long-distance friends.
♥ Chilly weather.
♥ Classy 40s fashions.
♥ Homemade pizza.
♥ Homemade cinnamon breadsticks.
♥ Looking forward to the next big reenactment!
 
So yup. Life continues, and it is good. Our God is an awesome God!
 
What about you? What's new in your life?
 
 
 1 Samuel 2:2 -  For there is none holy as the Lord, for there is none beside Thee. Neither is there any rock like our God.

  1. Congratulations on reaching 100 followers! I feel like i joined when there was only 30 or so. If you add my blog followers to yours, it's exactly 200. I'm really excited to get in the triple digits.
