The Bad Neighborhood series ($8 each) designed by Tracy Horner of Ink Circles.
#1: Troubled Waters
This small vignette is the first release a series of designs from Ink Circles called the Bad Neighborhoods. Each shows us what appears at first glance to be a nice place to take up residence. Upon closer inspection, we find that there is something amiss. Something that would make this a very bad neighborhood to live in after all. What a lovely little town. Hanging baskets of flowers line the river. If it weren't for those dead fish floating along, nobody might have noticed that something sinister was draining from that pipe!
#2: What Lies Beneath
It looked like a perfect spot to build that charming adobe villa, but nobody knew about the ancient Indian burial ground. Curses!
#3: Water Hazard
Who wouldn't love to visit this charming lakeside cottage? Wildflowers blooming everywhere, trees blowing in a gentle wind, the little pathway that winds toward the door. And the wildlife, did we mention the spectacular wildlife? Just keep the poodle inside!
#4: Upstairs, Downstairs
The Fourth in a Series of Bad Neighborhoods, designed especially for those of you who have seen enough charts of charming sweet abodes to fill the globe. Settle into this comfy chair with your tea and a nice book and enjoy the melodic and soothing background sounds of the 5-hour drum solo by the nice young man in the apartment above.
#5: Miracle Grow
Welcome to the Downriver Farm, where extra large strawberries and carrots are our specialty. And you won't find blue apples like ours anywhere else. Mmmm, tasty!
#6: Swimming Hole
A few years back, Ink Circles started a series of scenes featuring houses and homes that seemed pleasant enough on the surface but that had a bit more going on when you look closer. Whether the pond had a pink tentacled monster or an ancient Indian burial ground lay below the adobe, it was time to move out. The sixth and final chart in the “Bad Neighborhoods” series invites you to visit the pool house. Just a warning, though, the deep end is about to get very deep.

Your hands upon A deadman's gun and you're Looking down the sights Your heart is worn, And the seams are torn And they've given you reason to fight And you're not gonna take what they've got to give And you not gonna let them take your will to live Because they've taken enough and you've given them all you can give And luck won't save them tonight They've given you reason to fight And all the storms you've been chasing About to rain down tonight And all the pain you've been facin' About to comin' to the light Your hands upon A deadman's gun and you're looking down the sights Your heart is worn, And the seams are torn And they've given you reason to fight. And you're not gonna take what they've got to give And you not gonna let them take your will to live Because they've taken enough and you've given them all you can give And luck won't save them tonight They've given you reason to fight And all the storms you've been chasing About to rain down tonight And all the pain you've been facin' About to comin' to the light

Beau Leggy in the Desert and Calamity Pippi and the Horse She Rode In On ($6 each) designed by Tracy Horner of Ink Circles.
This bandy young cowpoke and his animal friends are so excited that a pretty young cowgirl just rode into town.
Pippi’s new to these parts. Her long little doggie goes everywhere with her. She’s heard about that cute cowpoke Beau and can’t wait to meet him. (Beau and Pippi are sold separately.)

Something I’ve Been Thinking About Recently:
TW // mass shootings, racial reckoning, general trauma of the past year
Amidst all of the mass shootings, all of the trauma, all of the social and racial reckonings, all of the darkness that has taken hold of our society over the past year, today it really hit me: these are UNPRECEDENTED times. I mean, I know we all KNOW this on a practical level, but how many of us have truly internalized it? How many of us have truly sat with the reality of the current state of the world and digested it? We are, quite possibly, living through one of the most challenging times in the whole of human history.
I reiterate all of this not to be a downer, but to try and provide a small sliver of hope: you are a SURVIVOR. You have made it through (and continue to make it through, each and every day) circumstances that would’ve been unthinkable a few years ago, circumstances that generations of people never even had to consider, much less navigate through. You are strong and competent and capable, and when this is all said and done, you’ll be even stronger and more brilliant than you would’ve ever believed yourself to be.
I know it’s difficult. I know it can feel like everything around you is falling apart--both outwardly and inwardly. Believe me, I understand. I’ve been to some very dark places during this pandemic, places I was certain I’d never have to confront again. Monsters I’d pushed so far deep into myself, only to watch them reemerge with a vengeance. I get it.
But please, keep going. Keep pushing. Keep holding on. There are pinwheels of light beginning to dot the edges of this tunnel we’ve all been shambling through aimlessly. If you’ve made it this far, it’s for a reason. Your life is full of so much purpose. The world we’re about to re-enter is ours. It belongs to us, those of us who have pushed and fought and bled and cried and persevered, and we can make it into anything we so choose. We get to make the rules, now. We set the new precedents.
Pursue that idea. Write that book. Move to that new place. Take that class. Tell that person you love them. Make that album. Draw The Thing! Don’t hold back! Your passions, creativity, and ideas are so, so valid. They’re needed. If not now, then when? If not you, then who else? We can do anything we want now, because we’ve all been handed a fresh start. We have the opportunity to design the world as we see fit, as it’s always meant to be. Don’t run from your calling. Embrace it. We need you. Please don’t give up.
Always remember: this is not an end. It’s a beginning.
Sending you lots of love, from where I am to wherever you may be ❤️🌻
