2021 Summer Camp: Week 1

Until recently, I have never been a fan of having my photo taken. Part of it is vanity. For some reason, the image in my head of how I should look never matches with how I actually look. In old family photos, I’m always pulling some sort of goofy face, sticking my tummy out, or …

Sliding into the Holidays

Much time has passed since my last offering here. I apologise for the long break, but it was time well spent, trust me. As I am writing this just before I leave for the airport to spend the Holidays in England, I need to be quite quick about it – so a list should do …

Super Busy, Extra Thankful

It has been a volatile month or so here at Noctiluna HQ (also known as the studio above my garage). In late October/ early November, feeling ragged and uninspired, I gave myself a two week break from printing.
