Hello friends! It’s me, Surly Amy!
Mindy can’t come to the Sundaylies today because she is now a superhero who can control the powers of physics while simultaneously fighting crime in the court room. Look, just DO NOT mess with this woman. DO what she says and everything will be cool.
She told me she needed a day off and I was like. “It’s totes cool Mindy, you do what you need to do girl, just please don’t create a black hole in my livingrom like you did last time.” “No. It”s true, it did suck all the dust and dirt out of my art studio and I appreciate that, I really do but I haven’t been able to find my paintbrushes or my cat* since.”
NOW On to our links!
First of all- here is a cartoon from my internet-friend (Shut up, Mom. That is totally JUST like real friendship.) Jon Rosenburg who has been sick in the hospital, but he is getting better. We send him love and want him to make more art because he has a strong sense of politics and humor in ye old visual form and we love him for it.
Now on to the bestest links on the intertubes this week:
New Mad Art Cast!
Seriously why aren’t you listening to Mad Art Cast? It’s so good and funny and helps cure art-anxiety, which is probably a real thing. And if you are listening, thank you. I drew you a daisy. *crumples up daisy and throws it behind her* This week we talk Salamanders, Axolotls And Digital Drawing With Ethan Kocak. Check it out here.
The Doomsday Clock! (with art) Time is ticking and that clock has spun around on us twice now I think. Click the link to learn more.

*No cats were harmed in the making of any black holes or this blogpost and I have actually never owned a cat which is probably why I still can’t find it. #allergies
