I added more POP Portraits to the Gallery and updated the listings on the old ones for which have sold. You’ll note the new entries based on the awkward round logo used instead of my clean text logo… Changing computers has misplaced some files… Better up than perfect.
It took me a bit, but I finally was able to finish setting up the new computer. I named her Jessica because she is sexy. This means I’ll be able to start Livestreaming again. Yay! Livestream has set up a new feature to stream directly to Facebook and other platforms. This is excellent, but I’m not sure how I’m going to get it set up on my Panel2Panel Facebook page as I only have it working with my private Facebook for now. If I can’t get it working, I’m going to have to change my privacy settings.
There are several paintings I need to scan in and add to the Pop Portraits Gallery. I’m going to start making comics again (I swear!).

I got a new computer. The good news is, new comics and stuff are a’comin.’ The bad is, I was delayed today in setting up the new computer, getting all of the software and hardware working, and getting it settled into the studio space. I told myself I would update every day, and this is one of those to let you know what’s going on. So…yeah… Thanks!
I’ve been a busy girl this year… And not very good for not updating this site as much as I needed to. But there is a new year upon us, so it is our duty to push forward, putting 2016 behind us.
We lost a great many heroes this past year. Several celebrities, but also scientists, engineers, dreamers, writers, comic book legends. Some of these deaths affected me more than others. I had a weird morbid fascination with them over the year. I wrote a few jokes about some and sold them.
And I have been doing that; selling jokes. Actually selling them. Ca-ching! Bot a huge ka-ching… More like that olde time-y manual bell and tower register with decorative tips on the 10 cent tab you see in old westerns. I have made some money in my PayPal account. Enough for a phone bill or two. But still! Writing! Payment! Score!
I had a severe bout of depression this year. In the day-job life, I was working four jobs at once during the month of October. I was doing special effects makeup for 13th Floor Haunted House, working in an advertising firm, teaching film and animation classes at EXL Learning tutoring center, and curating the Teller Street gallery. As of this writing, my contracts have completed with all of those companies.
What caused the depressive episode was that I had reached burnout. I was able to save up some money and will treat myself tomorrow by buying a new work computer. This will allow me to post more to the site and get some of these painting commissions off my desk.
New Years are about resolutions. I have opted to improve myself. I want to post more, write more, read more, draw more, work out more, lose weight… blah blah blah… The details aren’t important but my resolution to do them is.
There is new work on Instagram. Not everything I have posted there has made it here, so check it out using the link above. I do plan on linking Instagram to P2P, but have to investigate the plugins to do that first.
A ton of new Pop Portraits are ready to be added and I found the next season of Philo. There is good news in that new updates are coming to the site. Yay! I have a backlog. *GASP*
Comics might be coming. Maybe. There are plans but I need to figure out if I want to go for it or if it needs more work.
Okay, back to the drawing board. New Years. New Choices. The cat in the tux up there looks dapper enough to mean it.

So it has been a long time since I have posted anything here. My Facebook feed and page for Panel2Panel have been more active as has my instagram. Both my Twitter and Instagram accounts can be found her: @artglych. My Facebook you can follow, but not friend.
Recently, I have been finishing up a short contract stint at Prairie Mountain Media in Boulder and Denver, CO working for several of their publications in the art department. At the same time, I was also teaching animation and stop motion classes at EXL Learning in Denver to K-12. Once the Prairie Mountain Media contract completed, I took a short break and jumped right back into gallery work. Now, I’m working at Teller Street Gallery teaching classes about once a month or so as well as EXL still teaching a variety of subjects. I’m also doing Special Effects Makeup for 13th Floor Haunted House in Denver for this Halloween season.
Panel2Panel is going to get more active in 2017. A slow build until then. I am alive (yay!)
Oh, also LOTS of Pop portraits have been painted, but not posted to the site yet. It’ll take me some time.

Howdy. So I’m going to be Livestreaming painting all day. There’s also some videos from yesterday’s Livestream. I’ve also joined Instagram under the name “artglych.” Many of the creative people I know utilize it for exposure, so I thought I’d take the plunge. I have been posting progress pics for the paintings there as well. Once I have clean scans of the new Pop Portraits, those will be uploaded here.
Speaking of Pop Portraits. I did the math- I have sold more originals than I have kept. This means the series is a success. The original sales go into paying for prints of the entire series. I’ve decided on doing a limited run of 100 of each size for each piece. The prints will each be numbered, signed, dated, and shipped with a letter of authenticity.
In other news, I’ve been working as one of the production artists for a short film “The Friend Zone.” We’re having an Indigogo campaign for it. If you like what you see on Livestream, chip in and help make a movie. Links below:
