Two months have already passed since the last Beach update. Time seems kind of meaningless, though, in the midst of a northern winter. I've been hibernating, fighting off (or coping with) the usual seasonal depression that usually sets in after the leaves are off the trees. Sleeping, playing video games, trying not to get too fat and generally just being lazy is how I'm passing time this year. I occasionally have an idea for a new design or pattern and play around with it for awhile, until the computer lures me away to some new podcast or game or twitter rabbit hole. I did actually manage to post some new things on Zazzle and Redbubble, and added a few more patterns to Spoonflower, so I guess I'm not a total loser. Anyway, as the days get longer and the unseasonably warm temperatures rise even further, I'll get a bit more serious about getting back to work. Until then, here's a peek at a few doodles, old and new, that I've been tinkering with.
