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.

On the Bus: Woman and Man (ca. 03-09)

They were not a couple, but I like the way they both are disconnected: the woman looks away to negate the close proximity of other people, and the man has that suspicious look everyone takes on when gazing at others on the bus. (Who knows, with my sketchbook and pen, I may be some sort of crazy freak...Am I?)

On the Bus: Man Sitting (ca. 03-09)

This man looked like he was in his mid-50s, but I felt that he had a lot of life experience (I know, hat sounds inane, but there was something weary and wise about him).

A plant at Thuy's (ca. 03-09)

I liked the graceful shape of this plant in the waiting room at Thuy's (my long-time Vietnamese hairstylist).

Maxine's BD: Vacations in Hungary


...Where young P. gets acquainted with her paternal grand-mother.

Is the author a slacker or a procrastinator? (03-04-09)

Well, I've been sick (one thing after another) and then, I keep getting distracted by such activities as having to make a living (grrr...) when all I want to do is work on my creative projects.

Anyway, I have several stories down on paper and hardly any time to sit down and draw. This is crazy because working on this stuff is my absolute priority in order of importance, and yet, time after time, it gets relegated to whenever, if ever.
The same thing applies to my other blog, "The Hyphenate." Dozens of sketches have been scanned and are still waiting to be organized and posted.

Anyway, check out my Yeti on the "Maxine on the run" blog; it's pretty cute, in a rustic sort of way.
