So, I’ve been learning to crochet. I’m not sure what triggered the impulse, but it seemed like it would be an inexpensive new hobby, so I went with it. I’ve only been at it for about a week, and what I never expected was how similar it was going to be to learning to play […]Read More Crochet, it turns out, isn’t all that different from guitar. Huh. Weird.
More Holmdel Park/Longstreet Farm photos. We’ve got a few animals in this batch, not least of which is the very laid-back and sweet Longstreet Farm cat. This grouping was taken over a few weeks ranging from July to early August, if memory serves.Read More Photos: Holmdel Park
This is going to be a weird post. My plan for this Saturday was to take a drive to Lincroft and check out the other Thompson Park (Lincroft NJ). I knew they had trails, but I hadn’t been there in years. Saturdays are a bad day for most of my friends these days, but that […]Read More Red Bank & Thompson Park (Lincroft)
This is another one I drew with the intention of making a nice print to send off to a friend for the holidays. One of my friends is a huge Ron Weasley fan. And, in the interest of trying all the art apps I’ve downloaded, this one was done in Infinite Painter. This is a […]Read More Ron Weasley: King for A Day, and my adventures with the Infinite Painter app
After our Halloween adventures at the office, it seems that people are feeling crafty in the office for the first time ever. Normally, we throw up some window stickies and call it a day. This year, though, they started with paper snowflakes. That led to paper trees, and paper ornaments, and…well, there’s lots of paper […]Read More Holiday Art
The character in this piece belongs to a friend of mine. I decided to try to bring her favorite OC to life as a holiday gift. Since I don’t think she even knows I have a blog, let alone is following it, I thought it should be safe to post it without waiting until first […]Read More Chasm in the City + some thoughts on IbisPaint X
Done in Sketchbook on my tablet. Limiting myself to half a dozen layers is pretty tough, but I’m getting used to it. I always feel compelled to not merge layers until the end, just in case, but when you have a maximum number of layers, you definitely have to plan well. This started out as […]Read More Clockwork
I run in geek circles. And, because I run in geek circles, I often feel like I’m not geek enough, like my geek is somehow inferior to my friends’ geek. I mean, my friends get excited, and when I say they get excited, I mean they get passionate about their fandoms. And, when I say […]Read More Breaking in a new art toy with some FFVIII
I’ve decided my pirate cubicle is a work of art, and therefore counts as shareable on this blog. And, yes, I totally have a pirate playlist rolling. Don’t judge my geeky fun. Happy Halloween Everyone!Read More The last day of Office Halloween.
Well, I haven’t stopped arting up my cubicle yet. My final (probably) sign was made this afternoon. Last week, I spray painted the cardboard with a moss green base and some navy and black around the edges. Today, I cut it out, used a deco color pen for the lettering. Then I grabbed a white […]Read More Still Halloweening.
