"home made" light-box

It's winter... almost... and I love winter.
I'm not complaining at all... it's just that I've encountered some obstacles
5 hours of sunlight per day (counting my "awake" time)

Each evening I'd want to blog about something, then I'd snap some photos, *they'd look terrible, and I'd give up, promising myself to do it all in the morning.
Then, in the morning I'd have something "serious" to do, and by the time I finish, all the daylight would hide away... so I would promise myself again, the same thing, and I'd draw or make make something new, and I'd want to blog about it. I'd snap photos... (start reading again at *)

Not a nice circle to be trapped in!

And all I needed was: 
            Scotch tape
                     5min for research
                            10min of "hard labour"

The results are HERE in my previous post.
It would have been great if I had one more lamp, but I think the photos turned out OK anyway.

and this is a scene from our little photo-shoot:

Super easy!


I've been busy lately, doing some "serious" stuff
but I've also been stealing time to play... seriously, of course.

Maybe that's why this guy turned out to be such a...
Or maybe it's because he was given a name early in his life, before he got eyes, or even clothes.

A dear friend of mine gave him this name that's so... 
                                             □  puritan       tick only relevant boxes
   □  prudish

And so, I went on being terribly serious.
I am not surprised that one morning, when I woke up, I realised what I had done the night before...
...more seriousness...
Apparently, I've been introduced to these guys, but I can't remember their names.
If you've seen them before, I'd love to know how they're called. 
They've kind a... moved in with me.
So it all feels a bit awkward. 

But what I really wanted was to make new friends...
And so I did.

Thy're amazing at telling stories.
And they make them up as they go.
Quite remarkable!

the importance of eating fruit

Leslie's been trying to persuade Lennard to eat fruit.
But Lennard won't even hear of it.
Stubborn little penguin... that Leslie...
quit it... it just won't happen!

the importance of eating fruit

Mattimore's happy now that he doesn't have to play alone on the playground. He's got Lennard and Leslie to play with him, and Godfry's going to join them tomorrow.

shy in green

I had a bit of ... time ... that I like to call "shy", but in fact, it's my phase where I absolutely hate every line I make, and I want to hide away and never ever try to draw again... but I can't really stop... and only now I realise, this time, most of my "shy drawings" are green... here are just a few of them...

cute in stripes

This is Mr Mattimore.

He is very happy because he got a new stripy coat, and he's parading it around...

But not even a week ago, he was just another lump of clay and sheet of aluminium who had never met before... but once they did meet, magic happened and this new creature came to life.

Mattimore is just the first of many.. some of them have already been shaped and sanded. They were in Mattimore's drying class on the shelf, and they'll join him on the playground very soon, I just need to find for them something to wear... it's getting cold outside, I can't let them go out like this.
