This week brings with it many things to keep me busy! This past month has namely been filled with work for an upcoming joint show with Mackenzie Martin for the Lebanon art walk,which is not happening this month until the 11th, as first friday is a holiday. Hopefully I can get some pictures from the installation/opening. Expect to see them here. In the meantime, I encountered some pretty awesome chiptune websites. The first one is micromusic where you can download lots of sweet tunes. Some days I really get in the mood for chiptune, this site is always a nice to place to head for those moments. And then there was yesterday, when I found the artist Nullsleep Not only is his music worth listening to, with complex and intricate melodies derived from NES and Gameboy sound components, so are his other ventures into creativity, namely his New York ROMSCAPES. Seriously...awesome.

So I was going to write up a little post about our new kitten and how it is waterproof. It was climbing onto the kitchen table and, despite copious amounts of water flung via my hand from a mug of water, it remained curious and not even remotely bothered! Clearly this kitten must be genetically engineered. Perhaps we are looking at a new stage of kitten evolution. Even worse than antibiotic-resistant bacteria are waterproof kitties. Seriously, option two would be that the cat is not a physical entity, but merely some sort of astral projection. Either way I WAS going to write that both options mean that the kitten is most likely the vessel for the Antichrist, or, if nothing else, the Antichrist's freak hell cat pet thing. So then I was going to photograph the cat with my camera phone and then photoshop seven-ten other heads onto it. Probably give it red eyes, basically...the works. This of course, would be an accurate image of what the cat will one day become. So I sat Takun down for a photo shoot and just could not bring myself to photoshop it, it's TOO CUTE! Clearly it's Antichristical (yeah I know I made that word up, but use it a few times and you'll want it to be a real word too) kitten, it even causes my snarky photoshoping abilities and desires to turn to butter before it. So just um, watch out. I'll be watching for when it grow that second head, THEN we'll see if it's too cute to photoshop then! Meh.

Hello everyone! What a busy past month it has been! Exciting things are underway, in many areas of my life, including working on planning for a wedding in January! I did the designs for our cards and they look pretty great, though now we have to cut them all out. '~' Ah but let's see, in the realm of art I know I want to illustrate children's books and I've been working on some projects lately that aren't computer based. Though I know what I am doing there, I just feel like there is something to doing it all by hand. I completed this piece a little while ago but am very, very pleased by the turn out. Right now I'm sketching and trying to work on what comes next. The idea will come, I just need to plug away at it for a while.
