However, I'm taking a break for a bit tonight and seeing the Hobbit with Luke. I'm really disappointed this is the last of the movies.

It's a toucan with a christmas present. I love toucans, you don't hear them talked about a lot, though. I wanted to know whether or not they're self aware, but when I tried to google it, there were no results! You'd think someone would have posted this?

I kind of wish that I had the money and resources here to play around with light like I did for my A levels when I was 16... Ah... 16... cringe. Just for the hey, I tried to get into my long abandoned Deviantart account, but alas, the password has been lost along with my angsty teenage self, and I can't be asked to recover it. I did, however, take a look at the last nativity scene that I did. It is here:
Well, my proportions sucked, but I like the lighting effect, I wish that I could do it again, but better.

Well... I started this on Sunday. I need to try and complete an IF on an actual Friday.
The topic is SLOW, and my interpretation is based on the tortoise and the hare. TORTOISE- on a side note, I detest people who get tortoises and 'turtles' mixed up, when the difference is EASY- seriously! I consider myself to be on the whole (with a few exceptions) a pacifist, but when people mix up turtles with tortoises (as one ex flatmate would frequently do) it rustles my jimmies! Anyway, I'm not crazy, I'm just having a Monday morning rant!
I hope you like my illustration :-)

A self directed promotional project stemming off my scottie with a balloon. I imagined cute little pooches having a party, each with something to represent it. I have a few more doodles and ideas, but these are the dogs that I chose to fully render. Tomorrow I will make them into a little A5 booklet to send off to some magazines in the hopes that I get lucky and they like them! Wish me luck!
I have the scottie design in greetings cards here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KitchenCrawlies

I went to see some cows on the 18th (I've been meaning to blog about that for a while now, and will do later!) with te aim of getting some images for research to use in this new picture book I'm in the process of writing and illustrating called Una Ruadh (for the time being anyway).

I've sent my illustrated dummy off to publishers in the vague hope that they'll accept it, in the mean time I'm strapped for money and dreading council tax. Here are some mini Scottish cards that I made, HOPING to sell them in a local sweet shop.

So I went to a cat show today, which was great fun!
Like this Maine Coon! I held him and he was HUGE, and not even fully mature yet! He is conveniently covering my face, so you shall never see it!
They actually show house cats, and not just pedigrees, which I didn't know.
I love this guy's hair, and how it curls around under his body!
I also met this little guy. He was tired, and didn't want to be stroked, but he was beautiful none the less, and let me take some pictures of him!
Look at his beautiful eyes!
This one looked a little bit grumpy!
You would be too, if you had to watch people stare at you all day!
I love the colourings on this guy!
I'm hoping to draw some of these guys tomorrow!
This little girl is a Maine Coon kitten, and actually bigger than my adult moggie, Gwendolyn.
This little kitten is a Ragdoll- that's the breed that Luke and I are getting in September! I can't wait!
British Shorthair, I do believe!
This guy's name is Danny! So cute! The same as my ex, but more smilie :-) From what I learned, Danny is a fairly new breed of cat, the Asian.
Such big blue eyes!
This guy was super grumpy, and didn't seem to want his picture taken.
