A Juicy New Year

Isn't this a great word? I have high hopes for 2011 even though it's off to a pretty slow start. There's nothing juicy going on around here. We're basically in winter hibernation mode. Freezing our butts off. Trudging through rain, sleet, and snow. Shoveling. Scraping. Dreaming of brighter, warmer, longer days.

This is a little bit of doodling that I did in Pilgrim today as I was playing around with a dip pen and ink. I've never quite gotten the hang of using a dip pen properly but I like the scratchy messiness of it. I think I'll leave it out and keep practicing.

I hope your year is off to a juicy good start!
