The Birds

Check out the vultures! I counted over sixty in the bottom photo and it doesn't even show them all. I see this huge group of vultures almost every day around our neighborhood. We live in the country so I guess they feed off the deer that get hit on the roads. Maybe they are cleaning up the deer parts that hunters leave behind. I don't know, but it is something to see this many vultures flying together. If you click on the picture it will get bigger.

Creepy Christmas Lights

My husband and I went to a Christmas party last night. We got lost trying to find the right street (I kept telling him we were looking for a street on the right when we were really looking for a street on the left. Oops). While we drove around one neighborhood I noticed that every house that had Christmas lights up had all white lights. There was an occasional renegade house that dared to use a strand or two of color, but on one street there was literally six to seven houses in a row with only white lights. It started to creep me out a bit. Maybe it was an example of keeping up with the Jones. I don't know, but if I lived in that neighborhood I would have bought the most colorful lights I could find and had them set on flashing.
We had fun at the party. It was Nick's co-workers and I think I managed not to make an ass out of myself. Always a good thing.

The eyes are a little funky in this one. I could do a lot more to it, but I think I like it's unfinished messy look. It's all just practice anyways. The first picture is orange because I had to use my crackberry to take the pictures and I was covering the flash with my finger.

Hooray I Can Rhyme

Here is my ode to beer. Perhaps the worlds most popular beverage. If you don't like beer, well then you must not have had to develop a taste for it because you couldn't afford to bring your own boos to keg parties. Not that I would know anything about that.

Beer beer the magical drink
the more you have the more you think
the more you think the more you create
so here's to an altered state

It's sketchy Baby!

I was working on a portrait tonight that is a bit daunting and I decided to take a little break and sketch out a rocker chick that I've had in my head for a while. Do they make a guitars that look like this? They should. ( clicking on the pictures makes them bigger)

Merry Christmas to Me!

I treated myself to an early Christmas present. It's a super cool watch parts ring. My first official steampunk accessory. Do you like it? Too bad, you can't have one! Okay just kidding, you can find rings like this and other cool jewelry on Etsy here: KeysAndMemories

Thank you Pampers for this super cute commercial. I'm still a loyal Huggies customer, though.....
