so it looks like I had some blog already in a folder back from March and just never uploaded it
here are images from a wee slice of life I no longer remember perfectly and can’t conjure
i wonder what i was thinking back then!
well if it was important i woudl have remembered it

Bert in a turtleneck is pretty unforgettable

ooh we can check out the Matthew Stone show from last March with Krysta for scale haha

 photo IMG_0379_zpsd6a75f29.jpg
i like using Krysta for scale because she is petite

 photo IMG_0380_zpsab1b8d6c.jpg
i guess i like using Bert for scale too

 photo IMG_0381_zps2fe8740a.jpg
i should do a wee test of my art offerings of which works get purchased more, those with Bert or with Krysta

 photo IMG_0382_zps38439e4e.jpg
i think the ones with Bert just make clients think “hey maybe I shoudl get a chocolate pomeranian instead”
