Hunkered Down, Day 7

March 20, 2020


We’ve been in the house pretty much nonstop since last Thursday – my son’s school is closed until at least April 3rd, and my wife is working from home until further notice. We’ve had a few momentary meltdowns, but none of us has gone full Jack Torrance YET.

The trick is keeping busy – I spent the first part of the week working on NEW sock designs for my Threadless Artist’s Shop, and I’m happy to say that they are selling briskly.  My online revenue has taken a big hit this month, like most of us who make money that way, so this has been a relief. If you need some socks, here’s the links for men’s socks and women’s socks (not sure why socks aren’t considered unisex, but you be you, Threadless.)

Keeping the kid from going bonkers requires lots of distractions. Luckily we already had lots of arts & crafts available – and Lego.


First thing, I set up a folding table in my studio for Lego time. While Alex was busy with his projects, I started on a Donut Shop that I’ve been planning to build for a while.



Then I futzed around with some unfinished stuff, like a tattoo studio – I still need to print some tiny tattoo flash on sticker stock to decorate those tiles.IMG_8180.JPGIMG_8178.JPG

Finally, I started another building, but I only had enough bricks to build the facade, and I won’t be going to the Lego Store anytime soon, I suppose, so it goes on the shelf until I can obtain another assload of light grey bricks..



I did get the ground floor mostly done, and even got to use some cool printed tiles from the fine folk at Citizen Brick.


See how everything connects?

(BTW, 20% off all orders of $50 or more in my BigCartel store until April 7th – use discount code SPRINGBREAK at checkout!)
