I’ve been meaning to draw my character Aster as a person for awhile now and never got around to it because I just haven’t felt like doing art (or anything) lately. I made myself do this today just to get the idea out. Not 100% there, but I think the next drawing I do will get her closer to how I see her.
More photos of Jak (who got picked up today, hence the photos) and Charlie. Charlie is kind of a dick when he plays with other cats, but Jak did steal his lounge, soooo…
My friend left his cat with me for a week while he was on vacation, so here are some photos! Charlie tolerates being around other cats (and pretty much everything) really well, but I still think he prefers people since he likes having his own space. Jak (my friend’s cat) is more typical and has to get into everything forever, but in a cute way.
These are awesome I need to try making them
Thanks! I would much, much rather see everyone come up with their own cool templates for bead art instead of recreating the stuff I come up with, though :) I create all of my own templates to make bead art specifically for people who buy it or receive it as a gift, so none of my personal templates are meant for free use. I know I can’t STOP anyone from doing it, but it would mean a lot to me (and probably to other people, if they’re assuming they’re getting a one of a kind item) if you didn’t.
However, if anyone is interested in free templates, that might be doable depending on the request!
Dealing with a lot of crappy life stuff right now, but I managed to at least do this today. Apricot got her new home, Gecko Stack is now complete. When I move somewhere with more space I can fix this up proper, but for now it’s just this shitty arrangement on a table that one of my great grandparents made (I needed the box Apricot’s enclosure came in for extra support, haha).
When I stop feeling like ass I’ll eventually go to Petsmart and get a bark hide for her like the other two have and maybe some other decor since the guy who sold me those neat sticks I have for Rosie and Artemis hasn’t been at the St. Louis Reptile show in awhile :( I also accidentally bought the wrong size bendy vine because clicking buttons on a website is hard. So she might get two of those. MY GECKOS NEED EVERYTHING.
I really like the enclosures Pangea sells because they’re nice looking and super easy to put together, but I wish they had clear sides like the long discontinued Zilla one I got for Rosie. I hate when companies stop selling a thing I think is perfect, haha.
Guess I could also post something not horribly depressing, so here’s Charlie being the best boatcat and more Sailor Moon perler bead stuff. It’s really hard to make the stupid symbols into beads when I’m trying to keep everything at a reasonable size, but eventually I’ll figure it out.
I hate liberal condescension. “The people are rioting because they’re frustrated and don’t understand the legal process.”
No. They’re rioting because they understand that the process rarely gives justice to Black people and they’re tired of being silent about it.
Conservatives say Black folks are stupid and malicious. Liberals say Black folks are stupid but child-like so it’s not really their fault. Either way it’s racism.
Relevant to my last post.
Apparently a bunch of people I know are now surrounded by the huge riot that’s happening here over Michael Brown being killed. As much as I hope everyone in Ferguson is ok and would rather not have people rioting, I also totally get why civilians are angry and violent when the system that claims to be protecting them, their loved ones, and their families happily houses and churns out “protectors” that are also angry and violent and free to act like criminals themselves. The idea that any of us could truly be protected by a system that mainly exists to protect itself is a damn joke.
The fish tank has finally gone back to normal. No more deaths, all the plants are growing again. So I got another angelfish and red tailed shark because they’re kind of tank staples for me, I guess. I named the angelfish Jareth to keep the theme of David Bowie names alive. Eventually I’ll get better photos.
