Ok, so that power-positive post I made on December 31st might have been a nail in my resolution coffin.

I have never ate so much crap food (like dessert for breakfast!), drank so much booze, slept so little and wasted so much time!! It was kind of entirely awesome. A friend came and spread his bad influence over at our place and it was great.

BUT my clothes don't fit, my shop is neglected and I have a to do list that won't even fit on a standard lined paper. I am foolscap territory! (<--Its long paper people, come on now.) So uh, that New Year was a practice. I get a do-over!

Lino block print -batcat chow-
I did manage to list my new block print! Its Batcat Chow, an edition of 15 is available.

I am going to do a very limited run of this image with full colour hand tinting too. Maybe only 4 or 5, I will have to see how they turn out...

So Happy Tara New Year! *chomps on broccoli in festive manner* WOOO!


  1. I'm curious what "festive broccoli chomping" would look like. Are you wearing bells or Christmas lights? Are you chewing in time with festive songs?

    "Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.
    Chomp, chomp, chomp
    chomp chomp chomp chomp-chomp."


    I wish I could get on the broccoli bandwagon with you but my body has revolted against me and insists on processing it in a way that no one wants to be within a 20ft radius a few hours after consumption. *phew* lol. I love getting older.

    Hope that's not too weird for my first comment on your blog. I've been following yours for a little while now but just never got around to commenting. I love your designs though. Very cute!

  2. Are you kidding me. I love this comment! hahaha

    I think my Festive broccoli chomping is Festive in name only. In real life its more like cringing, scowling and whimpering. :-)

    Nice to meet you!

  3. Broccoli is delicious with vinegar.

    It's always sucks when you give away all of your fat clothes, and then before you know it you have nothing to wear but one reliable pair of oversized jeans, and you don't want to buy any new clothes under the assumption that you plan on losing the weight. Pajama pants and beards are fat-denial mechanisms. They make it easier for you to not notice.

  4. You do a really awesome job on your lino printing! To think you have to carve out all those thin lines to get that awesome image. I have done a couple of lino, I really enjoy it. Where do you get the plastic card covers, for your cards, if you don't mind me asking?

  5. Carolyn: Sometimes I buy my cello sleeves from the art supply store, but more recently I used

    If you don't to buy 1000 at a time like I did you can search Etsy for supplies. I have bought bags there too!

  6. Great!! Thank you so much!

  7. love this little guy, love broccoli! (gas or no gas!)
