These were the ones I did when I was really too tired to do anything else at all.

My grumpy birbs.

They took hardly any time, and they were cute and fun and silly.

Yes, I think I just might be able to handle the They Might Be Giants concert tonight, though I didn't make wordcount today due to nerves. *shudders*

Also, here's some more ink work! These were all just so much fun. I'm thinking about doing more of these in the future.

There's always moar.
Because you know, when I do art, I don't just do one thing. But ALL the things. (Actually 31 days of things. I didn't quit Inktober! Go me! And my wordcount for the month skated in at 59k. So a very productive month which explains the total burnout I've been feeling for the past week, lol.)

With this particular series, I made a point of researching flora found within the region that the animal is naturally found. This led to me drawing a lot of flowers I'd never drawn before, and made me realise that I love drawing flowers. e.e

Black-Footed Ferret (Mustela nigripes) and Arrowleaf Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sagittata)

I went to Jacksons today.
My god that's a dangerous store.
(For those who don't know it's an art supply store).
I always feel ridiculous buying like a tiny tube of watercolour paint that costs like...
$50.00 O.O

Thankfully it lasts forever.

I've been working on Inktober pieces and I'm actually super happy that I've managed to produce something every day. And some have been of a calibre that I'm happy enough to sell. Anyway, I'll start posting them up here now. A lot will end up coloured. It's been a ton of fun, it hasn't taken away from my ability to write, and it's given me time to catch up on television for the first time in ages. Man I missed art. I need to make more time for it.

All of these pieces are done on illustration board, with a 0.1 fineliner.

Glen's currently on a 4 hour flight home. (No wait, he's been delayed more).

I've been playing Dragon Age (...I'm going to be playing it forever, you can't stop me).

Also it took me like 50 hours to finally find Rifts less scary. *sighs at self*

It's been an interesting weekend.

Glen went to Melbourne to see the Eagles play in the Grand Final, and I stayed here and Mum stayed over with me (I'm not so good on my own at night). It was good, a little stressful just because my routine was thrown off so much, and I feel a bit ill now. So I'm sharing some clouds. Cloud therapy! :)

Do you know how much cirrocumulus we get here? Do you? ALL THE TIME.

I've been arting very casually lately. But I AM participating in Inktober (draw an original ink piece every day for 31 days). We'll see how it goes.

I've not been open for commissions for about two years now. I still get asked, especially for totems, and I put people on a waitlist. But I honestly have no idea when I'll come back to it. I want to one day. Right now my path has me going a completely different direction.

Borzoi sketch. Borzoi have weird heads.

So, here's the thing, recently I got myself a Moleskine journal (okay okay, I get why everyone loves them now). And then I didn't do anything with it for ages. And then the other day I was bored and so not feeling the writing and technically on holiday anyway so...

So I drew some ballpoint fishes. Tool of the trade: black kilometrico pen.

It's that time of year again. Actually it's just past that time of year again. But it's the time of year when all the jewel/Christmas beetles come out! I love these Anoplognathus and we had a really bad year for them last year, so I worried that something about my garden (or the weather) was killing them off. But this year they came back with a vengeance, and there's just been heaps of them. :D

All of these are taken with my iPhone. And all of them have been taken in the garden. As a child I always stared in fixation and obsession at tiny things, absorbed by the small things in life. And getting a macro lens for my iPhone has been a part of rediscovering what I love about the world around me.

I love culinary adventures. Mostly enjoying the fruits of what other people make, but there's some dishes of mine in here too.

Om nom nom.

Green Tea Tiramisu (I did not make this, lol - from Zensaki in Perth!)

I culled a lot from this batch (because I take Too Many Photos of Rocks), but god I love this place so fucking much. Every time I come here I wonder if I'll get bored of it, and every time I get here I never am. It is - for a blustery place that constantly tastes of sea spray - one of the most tranquil places I've ever visited, and there's very rarely anyone here except rock fishermen risking themselves out on the rocks.

A cloud compilation. I actually haven't been taking quite as much cloud photography lately, mostly just because of weird circumstances that mean I'm often not in a position to get outside when the sky is going to be most glorious. But I'll more than make up for this on our humid and stormy summer days, I'm sure. :)

Not the greatest photos of the Boranup forest, for which I apologise. My iPhone wasn't up for the challenge, and my energy levels weren't really either. So not as many photos of this area, even though it's one of my favourite little spaces in the whole world. It's just...very magical, and doing quite well given the fires that went through it a few years ago.

Warning: there's some close-ups of centipedes and such under the cut.

Man, I love macro photography. For *most* of these, I used my Olloclip lenses (small iPhone attachment lenses). It means taking off my Otterbox cover every time I want to use them, but it's still so worth it.

While in Margaret River, we visited the Berry Farm. We go there once a year mostly to stock up on jam (and then the jams/conserves we get last us until the next year, lol, so it works out). But this time we actually decided to stop off for lunch, because my stomach has been a *tad* more reliable lately. We ended up sitting outside in a sheltered area, and got some visitors while we ate. Delightful, colourful visitors. :D

I love Sugarloaf Rock? It's like...easily one of my favourite places to visit down south. And Canal Rocks as well. So Glen gets his beaches, and then I get my rocks, lol. I don't know what it is, aside from the fact the landscape is striking, I think it's that in Perth all our beaches are kind of stereotypical 'tourism' beaches, you know - white sand, blue water, sand-dunes with vegetation. Rocky outcrops and formations are rare. So for me, it's not the 'tourism beaches' that appeal most, but the rugged, moody-ass ones.

We mostly go to Meelup Beach and Bunker Bay whenever we head down south primarily because Glen really loves Bunker Bay (and I really love Sugarloaf Rock). These places are in Dunsborough, and it's amazing how much more populated Dunsborough has become over the past ten years. Not that it's a bad thing necessarily, I'm glad the area is enjoying greater commerce and doing quite well. Plus these places are still quite 'remote' overall.
