It's no picnic when you have a goal- a clear definite sign post in the road that you know you are headed to and all bloody H-E-double hockey sticks breaks loose. My computer has been dying, it died. BUT I got a new one! BUT it is still not set up completely. BUT it is faster! BUT I still have Photoshop from 2006. Ongoing freelance- that I thought would hold off until after SCBWI LA... has resurfaced. These things are not truly terrible but are enough to throw me off my Sketchables game. Apologies for no "Picnic" post. Just trying to get some new stuff done for LA. And going to a horse show today for the kid in 100 degree weather. I hope you all stay cool and get to have a real picnic with no ants!!!
