Straight off the bat this isn't 'high art'; it is not something that you wax lyrical about the incredible detail, the vibrant backgroun...

Over The Hills by TheSapphireWolfFox

First thing that got me was the signature. It's very centrally placed; I would put it in one of the corners; something quite interestin...

Request: Royal couples by Beyond-TheBoundary

The composition on this is very nice; there's a definite 'mirror' effect going on here, balancing the three on the left and the three o...

As usual your technique is excellent. I especially like your limited palette; focusing on blues and greys and black, almost pastels, wi...

Furnace by Ziblink
Furnace
So my old 'house' is flattened into rubble, destroyed so that a gym may take the place where it once stood. (I live down the street from a cardboard factory now.) I took some of the aluminum joinery and some of the wood and made this little furnace in an old paint can. What you're looking at there is over 600 degrees of thermal. (Celsius of course. I'm not using your crazy American units.) It's actually hot enough to glow slightly red. The molten aluminum was cast so I'll always have some sort of keepsake of my old place. (even if it wasn't exactly mine.)

I work in a cardboard factory now.

'Surely not!' You exclaim, 'For is there not anything so stereotypically dull as a box factory?'

'No!' I reply to your imaginary conversation. I work in a *cardboard* factory, we make the stuff that goes to box factories. On wild, windswept nights I lie awake and dare to dream of the hubris of working in a box factory. During my short time there I have learned many things about cardboard:

* Cardboard dust is explosive, you can use it to make low grade fireworks. You do not smoke in any sort of paper factory, or use anything that could spark.

* Cardboard glue is made of corn, yet get it on your skin and a day later your skin comes off.

* Cardboard is... card board. The usual 'box stuff' is corrugated cardboard which has to be made separate.

* Due to high turnover from injury and poor workers you can walk right in and ask for a job, and probably get one. even if you're a woman, getting evicted, without a CV or all three.


Computer access remains spotty, further updates as events warrant. (Also, holy crud, 10K deviations to sort through...)

Will be ignoring mostly everyone about everything, internet will be spotty during relocation. I shall be moving to a small apartment  before the year is out. (It was either that or fork over half a million dollars for the land my flat was on. half a million! The property market here is mad!)

It's going to be... interesting trying to balance out and organize the new rent and habitation arrangements. Blarguagh I hate change.

This will cause some uncertainty about my accommodations as they helped make rent and the flat is set to be demolished once one of us leaves by any means. Activity here will be reduced while funeral arrangements are being made and may be spotty thereafter if matters warrant. Do not inquire into what happened or how, I am answering no questions.

Meatcube by Ziblink
Meatcube
People often ask me, they ask "Zib, you do a lot of hunting, what happens to all the stuff you get?" The answer? Meat cube.

Here we see a cube of rabbit mince slowly defrosting in preparation to be made into meatballs. How did I get it so cubical? Our community butcher has a device for cubing pre-frozen meat. And it is awesome. I don't need to use it, but I do, just to see that puppy purring away.

So yeah, meat cube.

It's a zibble link, a zibble is (or was) a small fuzzy creature with large black eyes. Part of the Bogleech 'verse.

Zibby! What is up with the choices for a new flag?? Inspired by ISIS? Black and white? I need your expert editorial to know what to think!

Basically these are the designs that the least people hate. The flag will not actually be changed because nobody likes change. (Or alternatively everyone wants change but they all disagree on what that change should be.)
