The Cat Has a Name

Image
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. Technorati tags:: Photos , Cat

The Joys of the Holidays

Image
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 Technorati tags:: Scotland , Photos , Christmas lights

Death of an Ipod

Image
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. 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. Been working on those cherries, once I get the shadows and the darker cherries done I will post it. :) Technorati tags:: Scotland , Photos , Christmas lights

Lack of Art

Image
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. 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

Christmas Lights

Image
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.
