AND I figured out the perfect 52 weeks type of project. I have been slowly working on designing a deck of cards, very piecemeal and all over the place. I have a smattering of ideas and sketches across cocktail napkins and sketchbooks with no dedicated time to bring it all together in sight. Until a dear pal (*ahem*) brought it to my attention that the 52 weeks of the year correspond perfectly to the 52 cards in a deck (herself with a card-themed goal for 2014!). So I will be posting a newly illustrated card every week as I find the time to create the whole deck, one card at a time. You'll see my inaugural card on Wednesday!
