My insomnia has kicked in and I’m finding myself left with a whole lot of time to fill. So, what do I do? Design. be it drawing,m painting, web designing, I like to keep my head occupied. Above is about 2 hours work.
I’ve also been updating my personal identity/branding. Trying to merge my design work with my blogs. Above is my new invoice. I’ve also re-done some of my online portfolio.
I’m now currently in the process of designing my first media kit for this blog. Yay!

Slowly trying to get out of bed a little. Been going a little crazy. It’s times like these I wish I had an outside chase lounge. Even though it is supposed to Autumn, the sun has been out and it’s been a rather hot 26°c.
To dwindle away the time, I’ve been watching Doctor Who, reading & designing! To the left is some vector art I kicked out in about an hour (click to enlarge). It’s been ages since I’ve drawn. Also, I’ve set up a self hosted wordpress blog for Cait of Closet Confessions. She’s having a friend design the header, but I designed the layout, installed the wordpress & then transferred all 50+ of her entries over. Phew.
Now is the time if you want any web or design work done, seeing as I can’t really get up to any mischief out of the house!
I’m working on 4 hours sleep in the last 40 odd hours. I’m hoping i’ll sleep soon but I’m so wound up & stressed that I can’t seem to relax. If all else fails, i’ll pull Adam’s bean bag out into the garden tomorrow and nap in the open air (under shade of course, I burn with in minutes!).
I cried so much today, it’s a mixture of things. I’m stressed about one of the design jobs I’m doing, I’m stressed about money. I’m depressed & frustrated about my mental illness, which is somewhat amusing. I want to study, but I need a steady job to pay for the studies, but I can’t seem to get a job. Jobs are hard to come by these days, I know. I miss working. Then again, it’s also hard for me due to my problems, the fact that I can’t do some things a lot of people take for granted.
This year, i’ve been trying to set some goals for myself. I’m going to focus on my health. I did pretty well last year, but I really should have some of the tests I have been putting off. I need to get some help with my polycystic ovaries. I need to talk to my doctor about how ‘the pill’ is effecting me, is it making me even more emotional? I need to get tests done for my circulation and I need to see an rheumatologist. I should also continue on my quest to find an Adelaide psych.
I’m just feeling a little down, but slowly and righting back up again with the little things. This is the first time Henry has ever seen someone cry & he seems to have decided tears are tasty! He can be a super sook, and seeing I was out most of today, he decided he had to lay in my lap like a baby. It’s so great to see him getting along with the other dogs. Of course Frodo has been getting a little jealous, but then lapping up any extra attention he’s been getting. I don’t think anything in the world can make me happier then animals can.
Henry has decided he likes to sleep in the dogs cretes!
Frodo & Ginny decided to kill one of their toys, with very Henry looking stuffing!
Bored the other night, a quick character design mock up.
