The Big Move!
So, we just moved north of the city, into a larger house and much more trees. We still get the light from Toronto blotting out the stars but not as much. The great part is I finally have a studio space again. The tough part is we took Thomas out of daycare so I'm working and dad-ing at the same time (thus the above picture) . I've done this before, mixing parenting and work, and it's never easy, but it somehow works. In the end it's mostly more exhausting but I still get lots of work done.
The new place is wonderful. We've gone from densely packed pack urban buildings to a much more spacious suburban/rural area. Somehow easier to work here. Our new place is bit cabin like with a fireplace and wooden floors and large windows looking out on looming evergreens and tree covered hills. So much more light as well, with no large city buildings to cut off the sun.
I'm currently colouring Bera The One Headed Troll before turning to work on finals for a picture book.
