Another rabbit related drawing.

I might try and find something other than rabbits to draw reference from for a bit. I don't even know where the idea to look at rabbits came from in the first place. I think it was probably one of my projects for my third year. Something to do with them being a quickly-reproducing and very sustainable food source. Like what happened with them in Australia but on a newly inhabited planet. It was a fun project.

And even though I like drawing them, I can't wait to taste one. Preferably one I've caught myself... But I digress...

It's been a fun day.



I'm in need of some layout help with this blog, I really am.


It's a little warped because I had to take the photo with my webcam in order to get it onto the laptop, but it's only a rough idea, so I'm not too worried. It's the start of a vehicle that a character will ride in a webcomic that my friend and I are in discussion about. I'm excited.

This is a new style for me - getting the basic shape down with a pencil and then using a grey and a black to pick out the lines that fit best. I like it, but I'll always love the biro.

Blast from the past.

I gave this guy to a good friend back home. Just found a picture of it on my computer, so I thought I'd show you. It was my favourite design for a long time, so it was nice to be able to give it away. I really like the one below now, anyway :D

More arms arms than necessary.

I was hesitant to make the extra arms for this guy but I'm pretty happy I went forward with it. I'd brought the material over from England where I'd sewn it together ready to finish. I gave up a sock to make the beanie and snood. A good decision.

Sometimes I make things I don't want to sell, but the bright side is that I made it; so I can make it again if I really wanted to.

Once my phone allows me to send pictures to my laptop, I'll post up my little series of Pool casualties. It was going to be called the 'Poolkill' series, but a couple of the bugs I plucked from the water came to and jumped off.



There it is. Scrawled on the top of a pizza box. I haven't doodled for a while, so it's been nice to get back into it.

New creation.

I drew a Rabbitfrogsquirrel today. I'll post a picture when I can find the drawing... I drew it at a place called Sam's club. It's like Costco or Bookers - bulk things and big things. It was on a pizza box. That's all for now. There's a thunderstorm off East, so my wifey and I have been watching that for a while. Really relaxing and very nice to chill on the porch and watch it unfold somewhat. It's so far away we can only hear the bigger strikes, which is something I'm not used to.

After a few days traveling...

Half way to America, my wifey and I stopped off at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland for an afternoon. It was amazing. Very very nice.

Upon reaching Arkansas, I tried signing into the account that I have this blog with to find that I have to say what other account I have that backs this one up and what my security password is. Trouble is, I can't remember the other email address and the security password was a 14-digit number on a card that I have since had replaced.

So a week later, and many emails to Google, I'm back in. I've already made two dolls since getting here and I have a few plans for some other projects that I'll tell you about later. But the fact that I have access again to my account is very encouraging.

Talk soon.
