Sisters @ Comic-Con 2007

It's Here again! Oh No!!! oh yes..... The GIANT nerd fest which we know you all love to hate, and love to go to and not go to because, "It's gotten too big" "I'm not a nerd anymore" or because "My ex-girlfriend has a booth there" or "George Lucas has lost his mind so I burned my stormtroopers outfit." Well, whatever you happen to be doing this week, Both of us sisters will be there trying to stay awake after all the late nighters and prep it takes to get all our art stuffs down there.... AND we would love to see you! So come on and visit us at booth #4717 in the fantasy illustrators area, and we'll throw little gerkins at you!

Inspirado - Quotes of the Day

Miss Mindy and i just finished a nice breakfast and had a chat to talk about things. You know one of those conversations that touches on the world, the war, our neighborhood, how people treat one another, etc. (All that stuff that gets your feathers ruffled and makes you want to go out and make a difference!) Anyhow, we felt that rather than go on and on about the Comic-con, our toys, etc, we wanted to share some inspiring. So here it goes!

I (CJ) have been reading this book titled "Finding Water" by Julia Cameron, and its filled with some great insight on how to keep your sanity and cultivate your creativity whilst navigating your art career. Here are some quotes that we found particularly inspiring and made us want to pick up our paint brushes. Feel free to share them!

"The first mistake of art is to assume that it is serious" - Lester Banks
"A multitude of small delights consititute happiness" - Charles Baudelaire
"I'm not going to limit myself just people won't accept the fact that I can do something else" Dolly Parton
