Poll

Hello readers!

As I move towards setting up my Etsy store, I’m considering the sale of postcards or perhaps prints of some of my dolls.  So, I present this question: Which doll would you most like to see in print right now?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Tuesday Tunes: Siouxsie (and a Shout-Out)

Simon Drax—friend,  fellow graphic designer and scribe of the apocalyptic and phatasmagorical is offering up his novel “Doomtroopers” for your online consumption. Each chapter is uploaded weekly, with killer illustrations by Christina Chen and Paul Dinovo. Check it out.

In the spirit of Doomtroopers, I present this week’s Tuesday Tunes: Cities in Dust, by none other than Siouxsie and the Banshees.

Works in Progress

Social Networking, Silence and Growth

For those who follow my blog, you’ve probably noticed a dearth of posts other than the occasional nod to various musicians.  Sometime in December, after months of working towards various deadlines I hit a wall regarding my desire to participate in social networking and writing.  The wish to keep people engaged with my work is still there…but I’ve finally admitted to myself that I don’t want to clog up the Internets unless there is something truly worthwhile to say. Posting “I’m working on art!” on  Twitter  is, quite frankly, a waste of time for both myself and others, and sucks away time and energy which should be devoted to my dolls. Right now, I need to hunker down and focus my energies on two things: Finally getting the GFS.com site up and running,  (a year-long “Under Construction” site is unacceptable at this point)  and my Etsy store.  Deadline? Spring. Seems an appropriate time for a fresh start. With those two goals met, I know I’ll be better able to blog, network, and give readers something to enjoy.   I’ll still be here, and will post works in progress as they happen, but overall, will spend less time on FB and Twitter, for now. It’s just too easy to be distracted today, and those distractions appeal to that part of me that is afraid to make progress and grow.

On that note, I will leave this entry with an image of my potential home page for the new site, wip.
