many things make a post
in honor of the day

up with figs, auto snorkel

Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch - either in illustration or word form - and the other would make a companion sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.


Let this serve as a reminder that we are limited in what we can perceive. From the surface, using nothing but our human eyes, all we would see is something that looks like a gray stick. But where we can’t see is where the magic is.

Because of that, I am sticking to my conviction that there are nocturnal gnomes in the house who steal all of our pens and ride the cats like grouchy horses.

We have set up motion-activiated web cams but so far have not captured any gnome images. Tricksy buggers, those gnomes.
