WorkDesk

I hope you’re enjoying the new look of the site!  I’ve changed up the heading and have given this page an extra burst of colours to reinforce my happy mood. 😀

All Work and No Play Makes Marina a Dull Girl

It’s been crazily hectic lately I tells ya!  I’m currently working on finishing a small comic I’m entering into a competition this month and my deadline for printing is 12 September (I’m getting there slowly but surely…).  I woke up this morning feeling more stressed than ever about the pressure of it all when I went for a nice walk in the sun, while listening to this song, and now I feel more refreshed and motivated than ever!

Now with that out of the way, it’s back to work for good ol’ Marina (so I have tomorrow free for fun).  Take care and have a fantastic weekend everybody! 😀
