she swing the poi real twilight fashion

down and around
Originally uploaded by Jeremy Dennis.

Ah! Observe ... the lovely bluedevi swingin the poi in the back garden of jinty. There are six more dreamy poi-ghost photos in the set (accessible via click-thru) including one where she really does seem like two of her! It's pretty.

Hm now, any more news? It's too hot to be on holiday. My nephew now says mama, but only when said mama's back is turned (is 14 months too early to develop a wicked sense of humour)? Anat Ben David were major highlight of Truck Festival for me (although other people I saw, most of them I knew I liked before) -- lowlight was realising that the tent really had had it. Rotten.

Problems with cartooning. Too hot to draw without smearing greasy sweat over everything I draw. Which is no problem for scripting, except that I'm up to my bastard neck in scripts and actually need to get on with final drawings of things. Artists, any tips on this problem gratefully received -- god knows what I did in previous years. Went nocturnal, probably.

Stressed. As ever.

The leave-a-one-page-script-lying-about-for-an-artist-to-draw activity at Caption ?

weekly strip reinterpretations. Heh. There's a thot...

Ohh, I thought it was only me whose fubsy great arm stuck to the paper...I always think unfat people don't really sweat, somehow.

No, I sweat, perspire and glow. It's definitely smeary weather right now.

Wow, I look like I'm in a hoop skirt. Not just a ghost but a Victorian ghost! Thanks :)

My arm's been sticking to my desk all day too.

feel free to take any that grap your fancy
--- download from original size (accessible through all sizes). For, whatever. Educational reasons?

Works for me. Though the library are less understanding.

I find the sticky environment helps the paper stick to the table and I can fake a stretched canvas. And the paint dries quicker. Thats all I got just now.

draw with just the pen/brush touching the paper & have lots of tipp-ex, correction tape & patch paper to hand. This way you draw with your arm & shoulder muscles instead of your wrist. You could still use the distal palanx of your 4th finger as a stabiliser but even next to the nail it won't be a dry one!

you could also try having a piece of tracing paper between forearm and drawing surface - higher smudge risk but, as someone has already said, ink currently drys quick

I'd never suggest a graphics tablet
