Here we are, November. What a crazy fucking year! Remember back when everything was seemingly “normal”? We could still hug people outside our household… Go to a friends house for drinks… Grocery shop without following arrows on the floor. Yes, those were the good ol’ days. But we’ll get back there… eventually!
While we patiently wait for the virus to fuck off, I encourage you all to keep in touch with those family members and friends that aren’t in your bubble! Give them a call, send them a text, or if they’d appreciate the humour – send them one of my cards! My Covid cards have been flying off the shelf, including the Covid Christmas card.
While you’re here, I should pass along a message from Canada Post. They are sending out an early warning that parcel volume will increase this holiday season and that you should start you online shopping early! So while most of the orders I receive are small and light enough to ship by lettermail, you never know if they might get held up with all those parcels. So…. START BUYING YOUR HOLIDAY CARDS (AND GIFTS) NOW FOLKS!!!
And if you were thinking about ordering one of my 2021 Wall Calendars, you should do it right this instant. There are literally only a handful left. Those little fuckers sell out quickly and to answer your question (seriously, I’ll get asked this a couple of times over the next few months) No, I will not be making any more!
In other news, for the month of October I participated in a drawing challenge. It gave me a new word each day and forced me to commit myself to picking up my sketchbook… Something I haven’t done much of the past ten years. Here are several pages from my sketchbook – they aren’t masterpieces by any means, but I had fun! I might even add monsters into my cards one day!
