Janus senses change

I was checking out my shop the other day and decided that my old shop banner just isn’t cutting it anymore.  Yeah, I know, everyone loves an aye aye, right?  While this is true, I still think I’m ready for a change after almost a year.  So, this week I offer up a drawing of Doodle and Hoob which may or may not end up being incorporated into a new shop banner.

I drew this picture before naming it (as usual), and, although it immediately reminded me of Janus, I’ve only just noticed how appropriate the connection is to our current situation.  This January brings not only a new year, but also a new baby into our lives.  Poor Doodle and Hoob will have a lot to deal with.  Perhaps we should get on with some invoking.

Yes, it’s true. I drew a portrait of my dog in Burgundian dress. Commence mockery. I can’t believe that this is my first D&H drawing of Hoob, after all this time. Well, here she is. And yes, she is a member of the Order of the Golden Fleece. I started this drawing to remind me that I’m supposed to be focusing on my studies these days.  So, this post comes with an announcement: I’m scaling my D&H posts back to once a week (Sundays), while I prepare for my comprehensive exams in the fall.  Since my topic deals with medieval portraiture, you may or may not be seeing more poor animals decked out like so many (ye olde) ren fair(e) attendees.  I’ll try to keep it to a minimum, though.
