Bawk, bawk, bawk!

They were having a good bug hunt. We also have the requisite mushroom pic and some shots of baby anise growing near the arroyo. Oh, and the first almond blossoms! Yay for the aftermath of good winter rain!

Stupid LJ application didn't let me add to my previous post, so here it is...

Everything tests normal--blood sugar a little low, so possibly hypoglycemic episode. Otherwise a total mystery that cost a lot of money and resolved nothing. Will know thyroid results tomorrow. If that is normal we just hope it does not repeat and all is well. If it does repeat she would need to go to a kitty neurologist.

Between that and mom health scare last night, dessert was in order, hence the blueberry tongue.

There...that wraps up what was meant to be one post.

Using the brown paper bag rough mockup, I went ahead and tried to make sure all the lengths were actually right, then redrafted the pieces by hand, scanned them in...realized I didn't have Illustrator on my computer and downloaded Inkscape.  Yay, Inkscape!  So far, I am loving it and it's an open source program!  So, that's a small plug for Inkscape. 

http://www.inkscape.org/

Anyway, scanned the paper bag drafts, traced them, made vector graphics out of them, and began working on the design.  They are not fully adorned yet, but I think they're at a stage I can print them out, cut them out, and do a mockup to be SURE I have the size and proportions right (they won't be on this picture because this is just an image of them all together as best I could fit them on a page).

Anyway, moving along.  If I can get this right, I think a lot of the rest of the armor will be easier--I already know how to do bracers and stuff with Sintra.  The hand-pieces might be a little challenging.  But I figured that the headpiece will be one of the most distinctive pieces so if I can get that right out of the gate, I'm well on my way and will feel more confident as I move along.

So... that's my progress for this weekend.  (Pardon the crappy resolution--it is a gif file so to see it better you have to click on the image below so you can go to the full-size version.)

...after watching Supernatural...and there is a full moon through the rainclouds. Let's see if my camera phone has caught it at all.

So, this letter was submitted to the judge presiding over the Prop 8 trial by the defendants--the folks who think Prop 8 is a swell idea.  They're trying to portray that their defense was all mucked up because their witnesses are Scared of Teh Vicious Gay.  Because we hear ALL the time about gay people bashing straight people.  Uh huh.  Seriously, they're trying to set it up to say that if they fail in this court case, it's because of vicious gay folk who might have attacked had the trial been televised.  Let's just file this under "Oh, for fuck's sake..."

Can we try to bear in mind that it's gays and lesbians who are beaten and left for dead in the streets, outright murdered, and subjected to routine violence?  Please?  How many deaths have there been of straight people murdered by gays for their straightness? 

I am sick and tired of people portraying themselves as victims when they are--in fact--supporting the side of victimizers.

This amazing pen and ink stipple portrait was done by the talented Kevin Graham for Star Wars Galaxy 4. Not only is he an exceptional artist, he is a superlative human being. Many thanks, Kev, for the honor and the delight, both. :) *HUG*
