Mine is starting to get pouty. I was working on it diligently and then got distracted by yarn-based endeavors, oops.

Oh noes, I killed the thread...look, a teeny tiny shaggy mountain goat!


Quick, somebody post some art!

Thanks for all the compliments, everybody Smiley I'm kinda absurdly proud of that skeleton...a few years back, I used to do really detailed anatomical drawings in graphite, but I've since acquired some nerve damage in my hand that's forcing me to relearn a lot of my artsy stuff. That's a shiny new technique for me, and my first attempt to go back to one of my favorite subjects. I'm really glad people like it!

Mountain goats.

I genuinely cracked up. And now I want to paint a teeny tiny mountain goat standing on the summit of one of the triangles.

Anybody got any inspiration to share? I'm stuck. It's not speaking to me anymore.



And that's a horrible 1:30AM picture, ha. It looks so dull, compared to the real thing.

It probably needs something purple.

There are quite a few complicated-looking recipes out there, which makes a lot of people rather frightened of it, but cheesecake is really pretty simple. I only avoided the graham cracker crust because I don't enjoy the taste, but you can add a bunch of food coloring to any recipe you wanna try. As for the water bath, I've never bothered...without it, the top of your cheesecake can crack, but I've never baked for anyone I've had to worry about impressing Cheesy

Make the leap, it's not scary, I promise!

I'm heading to Lowe's to get a fridge later this week....I might just happen by the paint chip aisle  Wink

Paint chips! It's nothing for me to walk out of there with an inch-thick stack of them...I get glared at a lot. They're useful art supplies! Most people probably just throw them away, I turn them into pretty things!

Thanks, vampedangel! I love that technique (even when the hole-punching gets tedious and my fingers get gluey). It feels really cool under your fingers, and it looks very mosaic-y when the light catches it from an angle.

Here's a bit of what I've got so far. The skeleton was done during our hurricane power-outage, and the paisley-ish stuff was added today. Yes, these things totally go together in my head.

My original plan for the bones was cream, brown, and black, but I couldn't find my brown paint, so it's cream, metallic gold, and black. I really like the hints of shimmer in the skeleton (and there's an in-progress page later in the book, same paints, of the muscles in the back of the hand). The green, yellow-green, and silver in the paisley are also metallic.

The blue stuff along the edges is dye, I held the pages closed and dripped it all along the outside of the book, so little splashes and streaks appear randomly throughout.

This is a part of my paint chip collection, a hole puncher, and lots of glue.


There's all sorts of numbers, partial words, and bits of cartoon characters spread throughout.


I'm not one for doing planned-out spreads, I tend to just constantly add little things here and there as I feel like it, so there is no telling what these pages will end up looking like in a few months. Or if I'm gonna figure out a way to tie it all together, ha.
