My family and I went to see the Total Solar Eclipse on the path of totality this last Monday.  It was truly amazing and an unforgettable experience.  I highly recommend that you make plans to see the 2024 Solar Eclipse in North America .


On the drive to Princeton, Kentucky (where we watched the eclipse), I made a sketch of my dog, (who went with us on the trip), looking at the eclipse with his solar glasses.

I edited a short video of only the total eclipse part, where the moon completely covers the sun, and then moves away from it.  This is on my personal YouTube channel, Susanna Holdren:


I’ve taken a break for the last week or more, because it’s the end of the summer, but I hope to be getting back in the zone and starting a new series, as well as a few bigger projects.


Until next time!



Finally completed the last drawing in my Geekerella by Ashley Poston chapter illustration series.  This drawing depicts the scene where Darien and Elle are at a red carpet event, and Elle even brought Frank, with a matching vest. 🙂

Credit for flat lay:


I sketched it in pencil, inked it, and then scanned and edited it in Gimp.


Now that I’m done with this series, I’m looking forward to some other projects I have in mind.  Check back soon!



I uploaded my first YouTube video under my PixelMist YouTube account!

It’s really short, and nothing great, but at least it’s a start.  I’m trying to do the “Vlogust” challenge, where you vlog everyday in August.  I can’t really manage uploading everyday, so I’m trying to do one every week.  That means I really should have another one up in a couple days, but I’m not sure, it might be 3 or 4 days before the next video.

Let me know what you think of the video, and if you have any video ideas or suggestion/questions, feel free to leave a comment.  Until next time!
