…now the green has gone. For a while now I’ve harboured the suspicion that my ‘bargain’ 21 inch Sony Trinitron CRT monitor I bought off eBay has not had quite the right colour balance, yet trying to compare it with the 17 inch tft next to it is by and large a pointless exercise, as … Read more
Well, this is my life for at least the next week. I’ve actually had to set up alarms on my mobile so I can remember which one’s to take, and when. As may be obvious from the last entry, I’m not the only one having a shit time of it at the moment. I’m not … Read more
For this entry I’m handing over to my partner, Darcy, who has something to say.. Some of you may have seen over the past week the news that specialist retailer Silverscreen DVD has gone into administration with the possible loss of around 550 jobs. For the last two years this has been my place of … Read more
Well we made it, and we’ve been back over a week. But everything seems to have gone a bit Pete Tong since we landed back over here, so I haven’t the energy or inclination to post any entires. I had the flu the day we flew out, and D had it a few days before, … Read more

Anyhoo, if nothing goes desperately wrong I shall be snarfing down bagels and wearing holes in my shoes in just under 48 hours… Woo-Hoo.. and this time, no research, no photographing trash cans, fire hydrants and windows. … Read more

The idea though was to have something to sketch in on a long haul flight, so they may actually … Read more
Okay, I promise the next post I make will have some artwork in. I just felt the need to say something about what I think of this game so far. First off. Damn it’s pretty, with reservations. The characters look beautiful, and are well animated. Weaponry, armour and clothing all looks absolutely top notch. Where … Read more
Oh dear. Darcy bought me RF Online today, so after I eventually managed to get into the game (seems they’ve had some registration issues), I thought.. “okay, might as well wibble around for ten minutes then I’ll get on with some work” That was two hours ago. Ulp. I’ve never played any online games before, … Read more
had a few precious spare minutes last night, so started playing around with constructing figures purely in silhouette and then working them up from there.Interesting process, and I don’t often do this sort of thing.
Took me a while to get inspired on this one. In the end I settled for the Dormouse getting down with his laydeez in the ‘pot’. As you may notice, I got a bit bored when it got to doing the tea pot. It sucks.
