Halloween, you come so soon!

Right, so Halloween is coming soon. I always love it, because there are not many days when you can just be as wacky as you want and not be questioned about it.

I’m not sure what I’ll do, but I’m thinking of going downtown, Big Star, maybe the Violet Hour and then to a party or two.

Also, Illinois has the most ridiculous gun laws. I have just found this out.

The dreaded five minute self portrait

This morning I was lying on my futon when I rolled over and realized my laptop had gone into sleep mode and there was my little face, reflected on the black screen.

So I thought I might just do a five minute portrait sketch.

Was wishing I had an eraser on me, but alas, I did not.

Probably should have done that thing called measuring. I will keep that in mind!

Life Study

I found my nibs and ink bottle the other day. I feel some ink coming on.

I’m ready for you, inky fingers!

In other news, NaNoWriMo is so close now. I’m looking forward to crunching out another novel this November.

I must admit, I have not really done much the last few days in the way of art.

I should probably fix that.

Once it was rugby time, now it’s getting to be snow time

I’m starting to feel like it’s this time of the year.

Snow time.

Yep, it’s a shoe.

While looking through old files on my computer, I ran across a big file of photography stuff.

I haven’t taken many pictures recently, and never had any training or anything, but I’d like to do something with photography in the near future. I like the mundane things that happen in life, like a game of basketball down in the park, or people working in the warehouse districts.

Anyway, here are a couple that I like.

Rainy, rainy, rainy.

Man, I forgot how rainy it is here. It’s been overcast and wet for the last 3 days. It can really get a person down…
