I had all kinds of intentions of doing loads of drawings in the new year, but it turns out my mouse is worn out from too much cookie clicker, and apparently I can’t do drag and drop right now with any kind of consistency, which totally torpedoes any kind of vector work. Enjoy this dodgy old mouse that I drew on a phone screen with my finger instead.
The light was glinting into the living room at an odd angle one day and I noticed the reflections of points of light on the television screen were all…fancy. But in an orderly fashion. Is the reflection polarized?
Anyway, here’s a pixel art representation of what it looked like. I think this would look cool in a comic as a special effect; a spell, or a flash from a sword in motion.
Some time ago, I knitted a scarf for my mum. It was knitted with love, but honestly, the materials weren’t great, and there was no skill or pattern to speak of. Still, I would see her wearing it from time to time, and feel such joy that she was wearing something I made, me! But then I’d feel a flush of embarrassment because really, she deserved much better.
By now I have gotten a lot more skilful, so I made her a much improved scarf, with a pattern by Kristen Hanley Cardozo. Mum made me so many lovely jumpers when I was a kid, and even a fancy shawl for my communion, but I didn’t appreciate them at the time half as much as she deserved! This is my way to say thanks.
