No No, the Other Reality

I'm almost certain that if there were Celestial Gamblers, they'd be taking bets right now on the length of time before my sanity snaps. *pttt* just like that, like a fresh sugar-snap pea when you break it in half. This is largely due to work, and self-preservation has dictated certain measures to keep this bit of grey matter intact - namely Stressing Out and Hissing the minute I get home.

That being said, it's done nothing for my praiseworthy, if unexecuted, plans to do Illustration Friday either, dammitall. I mean, I -have- half a blue-lined sketch sitting nicely in my journal. It's just not coloured -nor- inked.

It shall be done within the next few days. Oh yes it shall be, lest the brain turn to mush, and mush be de-evolved into sewage.


Ahem. Babble, yes.


So people have been talking about fantasy self-portraits, said a little bird flitting in on the Wings of EDM Listmail. Not going to do that, sez she, oh no no, I cannot, I cannot, saith the lady who doth protest too much.

So she promptly sat down and spent an hour hissing and in the Spirit of Not Going To Do That, offered up the sacrificial goat below:


Self-control? What's -that-?

It's called Digital Fox, the story behind that being when I first met my present SO, he used to call me his Digital Vixen Princess (and still does, for the record.)

No it doesn't look like me. The REAL me is nothing like that.

Cue the raspberries, la-di-da-di-da, and the spit valves.

Self-Portrait Challenge and Suchlike Pandemonium

I've been drawing! Really! I've just been too lazy to scan the things and throw them up. Shame on me, I know. So to remedy that I'm throwing everything up, starting with my EDM self-portrait challenge:

I was between cases in the operating theatre today, and figured I'd make use of the time. Not very -well-, it seems, from the way it turned out but at least it was an attempt. I might do another one before the week is out.

And now for something completely different (and unspectacular as it was rather a barren week drawing wise):


Yeah, it was a bad drawing week. But maybe it'll get better soon.
