I figure that counting the birds I am taking for sale, I will end up hauling 40 birds to the show next weekend. That means I have to wash 40 chickens between now and the middle of next week. The plan is to do 8 per day, starting tomorrow. Wheeeeee. Oh geez, I'd better find some big boxes for the big-tailed males. That might require a trip to the barn loft, aka Land of Big Hairy Spiders. Ewww.
I think I have all the art stuff created that I'm going to bring...at least mostly. I was thinking if I have time I'd make a few more tiles (same breeds, same images as what I've used before, just making "extras" of certain breeds...each one will look unique though, I couldn't make two the same if I tried!) I still need to do labeling, pricing, packing, etc. I did make some pretty cool "maps" in InDesign as to where to hang all my stuff on the panel walls. I started making these maps prior to DHC last year, and wow it sure helps! Otherwise I'd take all this framed stuff, and have to figure out where to hang it all when I got there! Yeah, ok, so I'm kind of a dork...
Anyway, there's really nothing exciting going on at the moment, it seems like life is just a mass of prep work for next weekend. I am sooo close to finishing another pair of chicken illustrations. If I stay up really super late I might pull it off tonight, but I'm not sure I'll manage that. I don't want to end up cutting corners. But, I'll see what I can do! Gotta go draw!
