What is a true eclectic to do when her passions lead her in different directions?
This is a blog for the unfocused, the round pegs in the square holes, the short-attention span types, and all those who just can't bring themselves to join the ranks and adhere to a single category of activities or interests...whether sketches, drawings and comics, fixing an old farmhouse in Oregon, or whatever else strikes my fancy.

Maxine's BD: Willamette Writers Conference (ca. 08-08)

...Where Maxine explores her altruistic side as a conference volunteer...


  1. this was interesting! and cute too!

  2. Enjoyed your pics and story. Maybe they dress weird because, like me, they don't know what J.Jill is! Is it a fashion style or a label? Some of us just don't want to buy into labels. The only reason there is fall fashion, spring fashion and so on is to get you to spend your money. Some of us can't or won't get on that track. But, it was a cute story and I try not to get too weird (although my family might debate that).

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed your comic journals. Your drawings are very cute, and the lettering is lovely. Thanks so much for sharing this. It's wonderfully done!

  4. J.Jill is a (chain) store downtown where all the clothes look elegant and stylish, in a sort of natural linen, soft colors kind of way. It's pretty expensive, and I occasionally manage to find something in my size on clearance. Since I'm usually more like a Target clearance shopper, I was thrilled to find a sweater for $14.99 at J.Jill and that's what was on my mind when I worked on that page.
