Moving at a Snail's Pace





So for people wondering where the heck I've been, here's a blog update! You know what it's like when you get SO immersed in everything and you think it's been 2 weeks since your last blog update and then realise it's actually been 2 months...?! Whoops.

Well, still currently residing in Groovy Britain. Plans to move back to the US have been taking up a lot of my time - getting into America is like getting into Fort Knox. Anyone in the European Union can pop over to my country and work, study, get free health care and leave, yet America views Brits trying to enter the US as suspiciously as a shark in a wooly jumper trying to sneak into a teddy bears picnic.

What's teeny tiny and in demand? No, besides me?
Yes, miniature snails, apparently. Who knew?!
This post is going to read like I sit around making microscopic snails all day. Not quite the case. It's true that I am funding my short film (Myrtle) in part by keeping an online shop which sells miniatures (mostly doubles of the same ones I create for my short), but I have in fact been steadily building more and more of the set for my short, inch by inch...
Below are images I took yesterday of snails which I've been selling lately and are contributing to the Myrtle kitty.

I also managed to turn 30 since my last post, went to Cancun, learnt to snorkel, swam with giant sea turtles and pretty blue fish, become obsessed with ceviche, have been working with editors on more features of my work to come out in magazines throughout this year... and some more exciting new developments to be shared soon. ;)

Sorry to hear coming to the U.S. is so difficult. I hope the majority of U.S. citizens don't reflect the fear-induced rules and regs of the last decade. But artists are rather scary to the creepy/conservative types, haha! That aside--glad you're back to posting. They are always fascinating.

Mmmm...I'm a conservative type and I have no fear of artists whatsoever..
Perhaps you need to change your name and country of origin. Just fly to Mexico and come in through Tijuana. No problem. heheheh...
Seriously, hope you get that all straightened out soon and are able to return. I hate ordering things for "overseas" ... takes forever!

Happy late 30th sweetie. Welcome to the club. :D, Love these snails, there so tiny! They remind me of the ones I would see in Germany on our walks after it would rain. Don't feel bad about getting in the US. It's starting to get just as hard to get the kids in school or a drives license over here even if you do live here full time. LOL, good luck.
