I’m having a strange kind of day full of a new kind of motivation. 

Looking forward to getting some things done today and this weekend. 

But for now, I work and doodle.

Part of my sweet early birthday gift from @woodsel (a beautiful @stephbuscema print from @pinupgirlclothing ) So happy I got to spend the day with you!

Congratulations to Elicia T. —  the April winner of the “Thanks for Being Awesome and Subscribing to News of the Kate” monthly commission — and Morgan T. — the winner for June!

For those keeping track, the April prize went unclaimed — but not for long, as the fabulous Elicia T. snatch up the prize right-quick. Morgan won the old-fashioned way — i.e. - random drawing — but that makes her no less fabulous, herself!

Interested in free, original art? I pick a new winner at random at the end of every month from my lovely subscribers and July 31st is right around the corner. You can sign up for News of the Kate on my website — it’s a cute little box down at the bottom. 

Thanks again to Elicia and Morgan!

I adore it, thank you, Kate!

Finished up this little post-it doodle from work today. Little warm ups for bigger things. #post-it #doodle

Art weekend! I’m not planning on going anywhere for the first time in ages. I am going to finish some of these pieces if it kills me, because they have been nagging at my heart and my brain and my hands to be completed.

Will also be putting up some original pieces in my etsy shop in the next week or two because I am just running out of space!

Did some commissions over the past few months in my spare time. Thinking about doing some more if anyone would be interested. Let me know!

So much to take care of tonight. #post-it #doodles

Got some rad stuff in the mail today from @danmakesart . The little Dürer doodle of the tattoo we share with @ducksoups really made my day.

Mission accomplished. Disassembled, cleaned, painted, and put back together.

A day like today warranted pie.  Overtime all day tomorrow, then great adventures and art-making this weekend!

Picked up some of my favorite linoleum and some chipboard on my way home last night. Haven’t had a good night’s sleep in ages, but at least maybe now I can feel productive.

At least they match.

This is how I actually hold my life together. With hundreds of bobby pins.
