inspirographThere are people who end up sitting in front of a computer with nothing worthwhile to do, or nothing worthwhile they want to do.   Inspirograph, though maybe not made specifically for those people, can bring beauty and a little fun creativity to them.


Finally drawing again

pegasusI am drawing again.  I had said I was, didn’t I?  Well, I am.

I think I like requests the best–I always end up with something I wouldn’t draw normally.  Richard of and Gyrojets wanted something for Friday’s concert so I drew him this.

If you are out and about on Friday night anywhere near Pegasus lounge in Tampa, you should stop by and see Gyrojets.  They are the bombs.

lostboyI was watching a version of Peter Pan when I drew this.  It might have even been the Disney animation.  But I realized that I have seen many many versions of the story…

I do not yet have many many versions of the story as I do for Alice and Wonderland.  And some versions of Peter Pan are just annoying.

Speaking of many many versions, I have yet to do my Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles marathon wherein I watch all the different versions of the Hound of the Baskervilles story, but it is on my list.

meditation…trying out shading without lining first.  this might need a little more experimentation.

Talking about mermaids

mermaid017I’ve been looking through a lot of my Spectrum books (and I have a lot of Spectrum books) so I have been drawing a lot of mermaids (they are chock full).  And then, I happened upon a movie in Netflix instant that sounded kind of cool.  Mad About Men is a strange and quirky British comedy follow up to Miranda (also a comedy).  Both movies star Glynis Johns as a mermaid.  I watched them out of order, but it didn’t effect my enjoyment of them.

The strangest, and most delightful, in my opinion, part of the Miranda movies is that the mermaid doesn’t magically sprout legs on land and blend into the human scenery.  Quite the opposite, not only must she soak her tail every night, but she travels around during the day in a wheel chair and gowns long enough to cover everything.  Her lack of mobility doesn’t affect her simultaneous seductions of multiple men, however.

And, true to so many movies I’ve seen from the 40s and 50s, no outrageous betrayal will keep all of the characters from living happily ever after together…wait–what?  (see Miss Annie Rooney)

This is what happened when I asked Richard for a drawing prompt.


knitting published on No Comments on knitting

Image (16)I knit, did you know?  I have a whole bag of scarves and such, because scarves is what every new knitter and every now and again knitter knits.  At least they are the thing when there are no other plans.  And since every new and now and again knitter knits scarves, they are well nigh impossible to sell – that is what I have found.  I am thinking of lashing them all together and making a big stripey blanket.  In the meantime, I will take pictures of them and use them as hair texture.  Cool, huh?
