Snow wrapped in Ice Night!

It's been several days of snow this week that shut down the area. Today we got more snow with freezing rain that coated all the snow in ice. My Townhouse looks like "The Shining" on the outside!

Here's the result of the first "15 minute sketch challenge" for 2012 and I went a bit over time because of talking on the phone with a relative about something very important but was happy to realize what I had drawn when I finished. Hope you like it too!

My Art Horoscope for 2012

My Art Horoscope for this new year:
August 23-September 22
You’ve got a few hurdles to face, Virgo, but try not to worry too much; you’ll get the appropriate recognition for all your hard work at the end of the day. You’ll have to push the higher-ups to give you the go-ahead for your dream projects, and this may start to wear you down. Don’t give up, though, because once you start to see the fruits of your efforts, you’ll know it was all worth that pain and worry -- and your superiors will, too. Get ready to meet more people who can help further your creative career as well, in really big ways (Steven Spielberg, perhaps? Or Anna Wintour?) Check out all the conferences, workshops, and openings you can, so you can mingle with new crowds and start making lasting impressions. And if you get the chance to fly to India, São Paulo, or Paris for a project, meeting, or just a random getaway, it’s definitely time to pack up that suitcase and hit the skies!

It's from the CCA: Find yours for the new year!

"Creatures in my head" 2012 calendar still for sale...

Get 'em while they're HOT! Off the presses that is! Start off your new year with new art from Mike Cressy's head... and all the creatures that live there in.
Hope you have a great year!
