Lullaby it up!

You would think from the lack of activity on my own website that I’ve been lying around in my pajamas, daydreaming to sweet tunes, doodling and enjoying tea and crimpets. That, my friends, is precisely what I’ve been doing. (Ok well, sort of.) My big fat project of 2009-2010 has been a CD of lullabies […]

Who doesn’t love a pajama party?

Long time no update—so it goes when you’re this busy. If you’re a friend on Facebook or Twitter you already know what I’m talking about. Sing Me to Sleep – Indie Lullabies is at last a reality. A real, tangible, physical piece of art and music that was once just a figment of my imagination. […]

The project has officially been leaked […]

Beak to the Grind

January, January, January. My birth month seems more like my birthing month this year. I cannot keep up. Both of my babies—”Time to Fly” and “Sing Me to Sleep”—require equal attention right now. They stay up late and disturb my sleep every night. When the sun rises they rub the dreams from their eyes, pout […]

Last moments

I sit at my desk in my office in my Denver for most likely the last time. I’ve packed everything but the computer, printer and scanner in this room. My official move-out date is October 3, but before then there won’t be much time to sit at a desk and type away. Since early September […]

Byers w/Clouds

Byers w/Clouds Originally uploaded by Kate Garchinsky | PenguinArt.com Sketched on 04.23.09 around 11:30am. The biggest challenge was the rapidly shifting light that shone through the clouds, creating puzzle-piece patterns on the mountains. I did my best to stick to one particular moment rather than trying to capture every change in light. You can’t chase […]

It’s Time to Fly

As mentioned here and there over the past year, I have been working on a picture book. My first. It has been a challenge getting these reluctant birds off the ground, but in recent weeks I have made good progress. And hey! I’m excited that the story is, at long last, coming together. Storyboarding the […]

Back from Hiatus

The dogs’ footpath. Maybe I should use my skis rather than a shovel? I spent the past 2+ weeks in Pennsylvania catching up with family and friends, some that I haven’t seen in 12 years. It was really encouraging to know that I still have a huge network of support where I grew up, in […]
