Wow... two blogs in one month...

I'm pretty excited... finally finished little fishie and his water baby pal.
Turns out I was being way too perfectionist on the first model... resulting in baking after baking, which eventually meant he was a wide range of colors, like he had a badly fitting swimsuit lines all over! Then his hand shattered... and I realised the poor boy was trying to tell me something. Like, STOP.
So, I started again, and this time I did it right. Started with a decent armature and only baked him a few times. He looks awesome!









If I do say so myself. So I'm going to have to think of my next project soon... and stock up on flesh colored clay! Might need some more orange too.
Anyway, if you want to see more pictures, he's going to be online on ebay tomorrow, and I'll try and post one of those lovely links then... just like I'm going to post one for etsy now. etsy where, by the way, some lovely person just bought ALL my ACEO's in one shot. How often does that happen?

Plus just signed up for twitter... I'm starting to get on a roll with this blogging thing, it seems... why not go nuts?

P.S. Angels and Demons is better than I expected... not really a thinker, and the twist was a bit heavy handed, but alright.
I'm getting sick of these bait and switch endings though... especially since they give you a nice ending and then pull out the rug... come on people, I need a bit of gooey, happy ending loviness sometime! Both Greys anatomy and House did it to me in their season finales(and its not like I watch Greys for the hard hitting drama... I watch it for the damn feel good gooeyiness).

P.P.S you might prefer not to ask why I, living in NZ, have seen both final episodes... plausible deniability.

A Tardier Blog... ha!


Ok, it's been more than a month since I last posted. I've been up to Auckland (and Tauranga) and back, and already completed a week of school. Plus, I'm about 40 secs into my little stop motion movie! (see the cast of characters above... it's called The Compassionate Scorpions and its supposed to be mocking various 80's cartoons) It's coming together (relatively) fast... and of course looks just as sloppy as that implies, but people still laugh and that's what counts right? right????


So, anyways, I'm just going to have to post a link to a random page.

This blog is freakin awesome and I read it every morning with my coffee in hand. And this is pretty much my favourite list so far... Birds stealing icecream! Gotta love it.






So, what have I been up to? Well, apart from some very bizzare crayon drawings, set by a sadistic teacher (there I said it! He pretty much admitted it himself... he wanted us to suffer with the crayons so we'd appreciate the paint... I think he's sleep deprived because of his new infant and wanted to amuse himself by torturing poor students!). Yes that is a standard sized tin can for scale. No its not finished. No, it's never going to be finished.


I spent 3 bloody hours last night trying to (illegally, I'm sorry) download a movie that just kept fucking with me. But I got it eventually. I didn't even want to see it that much. It just pissed me off that the universe wanted to deprive me.
And it had the really annoying assumption in it that a Scotsman wouldn't know what basketball is. That, in fact, he would think it was netball. Um... I'm guessing, given the fact that they play basketball in the middle of sub-saharan Africa, they most likely at least know what is IS in Scotland. Yes, American culture is that prevalent.


At the moment I have half a fish... a fish in progress I suppose. And a waterbaby in progress to ride him. My mad polymer clay skills are starting to show... still learning however, and I burned poor baby's fingers.

This is the fish. He is tailess and finless so far.


This is Baby. This is his most appealing side! (at the moment anyway)




This is Baby letting it all hang loose. Yes, he will eventually have a hand, some non-burnt fingers and maybe even a face... Hopefully soon.

And last but not least, I finally finished my handsome Sebastian.

He might have freakishly short legs, but surely the heart shaped wings make up for it? No fluffy slippers here.

OK, methinks thats enough rambling about myself for one day. love ya. Shout out to my single follower right now... Katie, I know it's you! :)
