I usually don’t draw birds. Especially ones that dance or do yoga poses.
More random shapeyness and lettercraft (I hesitate to call it calligraphy).
*~~BONUS COCKER SPANIELS~~*
Quite possibly the best drawings I’ve made in years. Dedicated to the memory of Dayna Ahern, whose dog Honey inspired these.
Gattaca (1997) Blu-ray Screenshots
The only thing better than looking at screenshots of G A T T A C A is listening to the soundtrack. Ooo-ee!!
I love the sound of the Zen Tambour handpan for writing. Hit play on Spike Finch’s SoundCloud page and every track will play, giving your hours to enjoy the bongey-chimey goodness.
Things I like to do: make random shapes, then fill them into make animals/faces.
Kitty and Frenchie edition:
A graphic gryphon (not a random shape)
Shapey Werewolves made while watching Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge, one of television’s finest programs:
Bob Ross Lion is uncharacteristically grouchy.
Print and color mandalas online
Because I know you love colorin’ and meditatin’ and I guess this combines the two.
(If you just wanna color ‘em, go to http://printmandala.com/ )
Every week I write out my work schedule and put it up so my folks can look at it when they need to. I drew these kitties to fill in the empty space on a couple of ‘em:
Leikitty wears a lei! My mom’s favorite kitties are the Exotic Shorthairs (you know, like SnoopyBabe!), so my recent kitties have that flava to them.
Shake dat thang, Hula Cat!
And last but not least, I got around to doing a color mockup of Agent Grenera Pālau, a bodyguard from my novel:
I thought vitiligo would look good on her. Don’t think I’ll keep it for her comb though. This also marks the premiere of Genera’s new redesign, based off the American Pit Bull Terrier…yes, I tried to make a parrot alien look like a pit bull.
First, if you enjoy tabs, you’ll love this free add-on that lets you have tabs in Word, Excel and PowerPoint (works up until Office 2013):
Second, if you’re like me and occasionally have multiple drafts of the same story running around, here’s an easy trick to differentiate them (in Office 2010 anyway):
On the Ribbon, hit Page Layout, then Page Color.
There! Won’t affect your printing unless you change things around in Options.
Now you can tell at a glance which version you’re working on! And perhaps prevent eyestrain!
Finally, Control+Click selects a whole sentence at once.
The things you learn before 8AM on a Thursday!
I’m always marking up text in red in Microsoft Word (to let me know I wanna change it later). This following link gives an easy way to assign a keyboard shortcut so you can instantly turn text whatever color you want!
After you’re done editing a document in Word, save it and close it.
When you reopen it, hit SHIFT+F5. Congrats–you are now back to the last place the cursor was editing.
Wish I coulda known this last year when I was in the middle of making SCVK…Would’ve saved me a lot of PageDowns! On the other hand, it did teach me to use the document map. Hmm…

I’m long overdue for an update but I wanted to at least share that tip.
SCVK’s climactic boss fight has been written.
All that is left is the denouement and the ending scene, probably 8-10 pages, and then…it’s done.
In the meantime, I have to function normally.
