Art-wise, I've had projects on and off, but I haven't had time to sit down for some watercolour painting yet. I think my most recent project is the paper doll, which reminds me that I have some new paper doll-ish ideas in progress. I'm always in need of birthday cards and it seems practical to design some. However, I don't want boring, normal cards so I'm considering jointed dolls/scenes as cards. For now, the ideas are just blue pen sketches on a pad of paper. They look pretty cool if you can tell what they are :P
My latest obsession (I rotate obsessions) are the fish at home , and do you know why? Because the mummy fish is going to be a mummy again! I guess that's no surprise to you, but this is a new mummy fish (not the killer one) and she has been playing hard-to-get for a long time. The husband fish chases her around the tank all day, and she runs away from him all day. However, she's been getting mightly plump as of late, and we know what's brewing.We moved her into a maternity ward compartment, thinking to spare her all the persistent chasing from her husband fish. Ironically, the husband fish and his wife missed each other. He hung around her compartment all day, staring longingly at her through the glass. She didn't seem to like the separation either. She magically jumped out of her compartment to reunite with her honey. There are big googly-eyed goldfish, however, that would love to snack on some baby fish, so we moved her back to the maternity ward and put a lid on top. She didn't like that one bit and husband fish returned to his post beside her on the other side of the glass. Poor guy! She's starting to square out though, and that's supposed to mean she'll give birth soon. Hang on, love birds! You'll be together again soon!
