The Cat Has a Name

The cat that has been hanging around the grocery store taking advantage of the huge heater by the doors.

Why they just don't keep the cat inside at home to get it away from people that will just ignore the sign and feed it anyway, I have no idea. The cat isn't hurting anything by being there though, and I always laugh when I see him because he is really cross-eyed.

The Joys of the Holidays

Way too many people in the mall walking/running around with a look of panic on their faces. Also not looking to see who they push and shove out of the way to grab that last vital gift for someone. If I hadn't of had to go to Dundee I wouldn't have, but atleast the lights looked nice after it rained.

Lights downtown Dundee.
Red lights

Green lights, I didn't even notice that the colours changed until John showed me these pictures. Shows how observant I am Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Death of an Ipod

So my ipod is dead. This time for good because for the last few months the battery would not hold a charge and the hard disk was broken. It wouldn't turn on half the time, and when it did turn on, I couldn't get it to turn off.

And if it wasn't dead before, it is now. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Neat to see the inside of one. :) (its missing the hard disk in the picture)

And a Christmas tree in downtown Dundee, very pretty in person. Would have gotten more pictures of the decorations but it was raining, will try to get some when we go back next week. No snow, just lots of rain and flooding in some parts of Scotland. The grass is so green its almost neon in colour. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Been working on those cherries, once I get the shadows and the darker cherries done I will post it. :)

Lack of Art

I haven't drawn anything for a month. Well thats not exactly true. I have drawn tattoo line art, sketch ideas for dragons, and line art for various animal pictures. Even transfered them on to good paper but I can't seem to be able to colour any of them (or even just use graphite to finish anything). I don't mean to complain but its very annoying when I want to draw and colour but once I sit down to do so, I can't. I have the line art done for some Christmas dragons but not sure if it will get done by Christmas because of the size.

Out of boredom, my hands were victims of a pen and covered with various pointless designs yesterday. Thank the Gods it washed off or I would have probably woken up with ink all over my face and the sheets. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Next time I do that I have to remember to take a picture.

So I was looking over transfered drawings, trying to see if anything caught my eye, and came across one I had done earlier this year but it was messed up by a stupid mistake (that I still haven't learned from, don't have a pencil in the same hand while using an eraser). Still have a lot of work left on this but no matter what I tried I couldn't get the red streak off the paper, it had gouged pretty deeply and would have shown up no matter what colour I made that cherry. Which at the time bugged me because I did like the way it was turning out even if it looked more like a bowl of candy or marbles then cherries. Some people couldn't see the streak but it is the first thing I see when I look at this.

So I'm going to re-do this and hopefully this time I don't end up with streaks across it. I'm hoping that if I can even get half of this new bowl of cherries finished it will jump start other things.

Christmas Lights

Some blurry night time shots of some of the xmas lights downtown, considering they are from a camera phone and it was getting dark fast, they turned out alright. :) Some of the Forfar lights, didn't get a picture of the tree because honestly it just looks like someone tossed a single strand of lights on to it and didn't do anything else but hope the lights don't fall off. Disappointing considering its a nice big tree. I really like the way the lights are placed on the sides of those buildings though, really brightens up that part of downtown. Some of the lights are animated and flash different colours, it looks neat but its hard to get a picture of though cause some of them flash really fast.
