Sunday Sketches

Still using my left hand for these sketches and I realized the other day that I might not be able to continue with the left handed 365 sketches once uni starts again since final year is probably going to be pretty busy, (would love to continue but that probably wont happen). I will see if I can continue with them, but will at least continue during the summer.

Weekly Book Wrap Up

Old Man's War (Old Man's War, #1)Old Man's War by John Scalzi
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

fast entertaining read, interesting world building and aliens. I enjoyed it but wasn't left caring too much what happens and thats probably because the soldiers are so genetically enhanced they are not really human enough to care about.

If you have read a lot of sci-fi you really can see how much old school sci-fi influenced the author but he updated the writing style and themes to more modern times.

Finally friday

(# 116)

After a very grey rainy week we finally had some sun today which I hope stays around for the weekend but I doubt it since there is a music festival on this weekend and it never fails to rain when there is a big festival on.

An Australian Galah for #117, love how pink the are but very loud things.

I swear its an owl not an alien lol (#118)

And here is a short random video from the other day and you can get a sense of the barking we have to deal with almost all the time in the car, the dog just gets too excited and has to bark!

Linking up to Paint Party Friday

Scribble Picnic-Jars

The theme this week was  "jars" and I had no idea at all of what to draw so didn't think I would get anything done for this week. I can't really remember what I was looking at or reading when I came up with this idea of a witch's apothecary full of jars and a few dragons.
These are just rough sketches that need a lot of work. I need to put some more objects on the shelves and redraw the whole thing to be transferred onto better paper. Probably watercolour paper since I don't have time to colour this with coloured pencil.
