Blurs

It turns out that photography in motion isn’t easy, less so when you’re pretty shortsighted with an optician visit pending for the past few years; but as it (also) comes out, not all blur is equal and some snaps actually acquire a bit of charm that they would otherwise lack.

 

Are you a collector?

As I wandered around a beach today, adding to my collection of broken seashells (I love broken seashells. I just find them more beautiful and complex than the perfect ones.)
…I wondered, does anyone else in my circles collect something…quite odd or less usual than, let’s say, postal stamps?
Maybe…broken seashells or Tamagotchis?

(6 Tamagotchis isn’t really a collection, is it? It isn’t. I don’t collect Tamagotchis. I just have them. Yes. That’s it.)

Inktober starts today

I have barely noticed it’s the 1st today (oops), but I have remembered Inktober event and I’m hoping to summon up some art today.
I haven’t decided yet whether to go digital this year, since it could be a good opportunity to create some prints…but traditional has its perks, including simpler setup and action — compared to hooking up a tablet to the PC, using Photoshop, layers, finalizing printable quality, uploading it to Redbubble or so…will see, will see. I could probably do Hair-tober. Or…Pattern-tober.

Or, I could stop crippling the word and start inking.


As a side note, I have Tama-mail somewhere with DHL here in Kuwait and feeling quite childishly excited about it. I bought two M!X tamas for the girls and one (more) for me, so we can play together and create little digital abominations. Now only if the customs moved their bee-hinds and stopped being such snails. (The parcel has been on its way from Japan for some time now, and I’m getting impatient, yes. I can be a baby sometimes.)
