It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Soo per-man!

It's a satellite! It's a june bug! It's Lena Meyer-Landrut!


(You probably have to live in Germany to understand this in it's entirety. If you don't live in Germany, stop reading when you get to the words 'june bug'.)

Just wondering if it's possible to still look foxy when you wear paisley?

A trail of destruction! Here is a great initiative to help support the wildlife endangered by the oil spill on the Louisiana coast. I decided to make a ripple.

Creature comforts...

My daughter was feeling a bit blue yesterday after our semi annual parent-teacher conference... to which I took her along because I feel that once they have reached a certain age, it simply makes more sense that they hear it directly. What she heard wasn't bad... just that she needs to work on speaking up and contributing more to class discussions. "SOUNDS easy enough..." eeped the all too familiar painfully shy feeling inside of me... and promptly sat down to make her a quick creature to hang on her bulletin board... to fly by and sprinkle a handful of *trau dich* dust (I have dust on my brain at the moment :) in her direction.

Because my work table at home is conveniently situated on a superhighway commonly frequented by assorted blunt and fearless individuals, I usually reap lots of valuable feedback without even trying. For example... "Good... but not as good as usual! If those are supposed to be wings, they look like moose antlers. The face is a little, well, different... but sympathetic. Oh, are those legs? I thought they might be pipes. Where are the feet? But I love those dotted lines. Me too. Me too." Me too! Here's to dotted lines :)

*believe in yourself dust

Since December of last year when I discovered I was up to my navel in dust bunnies, I've been trying to think up ways to sneak them past the woman with the vacuum cleaner. Stay tuned... the next one might just be a doozy ;)

I love the element of chance that is always present in painting with watercolors... even though sometimes it turns out ugly and is hard or impossible to fix. I have a large collection of half painted pictures standing in my corners to prove it. Because I wanted to not ruin this one, I scanned in my line drawing before painting the background... knowing that I can always try something digital if my watercolor goes awry. But I like it :) Now all I want to do is create the creatures that come out of these... festive pickles!

I sometimes start to sketch on tiny little pieces of paper that are just there and then... I'm bugged when I don't have room for the legs.

'Ouch' squawked the phoenix when he felt the heat. Hundreds of years had passed in the blink of an eye and the renewal process had begun again.
