I’m back!  I took the liberty of giving myself a nice long maternity leave while reacquainting myself with life with a newborn (pure… um… joy).  Doodle’s little sister (Doodette?  Twoodle?  Me Toodle?) was born one month ago today!  In celebration, I drew a new family portrait for my “About Me” page.  I have to admit that this doesn’t really look all that much like my husband.  In fact, it’s weirding me out a bit that this four-fingered stranger has his hand on Doodle’s head like that.

Let the regular updates resume!  Hopefully…

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.
