|Animals that are awake in the day...|
|...and animals that are awake at night!|
I'm quite pleased with how things are going with this style, people seem to be liking it and it's much more fun and simple than painting..! More updates on the book project to come :)
It's been a bit of a strange week this week, really...
:,D I'm a huge Frank Zappa fan, and Dweezil and his band did not disappoint. Don't think I've ever laughed so much at a music show before, either! Many thanks again to James, Nat, & James' parents for the surprise invite and tickets! :3 (Also, this is the perfect opportunity to post one of my extremely old portraits - and one that I am particularly proud of! ;3)
On Wednesday morning, I awoke to the surprise/shock/horror of having an axolotl tank filled with eggs (and also four slightly confused axies). I had the suspicion that one of my girls were pregnant, but still, I wasn't expecting it. I've found someone who is willing to take the lot though (thankfully!), and she's very excited about doing so, but still... I'm kind of worried as my other female is looking pretty damn huge these days. We shall see...
And finally, last night I went to St Helens to watch Derek Acorah's 'True Vision' Tour with my sister and her boyfriend. It was my Uncle's idea, he's a huge fan but he couldn't go, so I couldn't refuse when he said he'd pay for my ticket. I find the whole cult-like fascination with the guy to be completely hilarious, too.
It was actually a really great show, and very funny in parts. Some of the things he said were pretty uncanny, although I didn't take his 'readings' seriously. Nothing negative to say about the people who follow him, we have to make up their own mind up about these things, but until I'm completely persuaded otherwise. I guess I'm kind of a cautions skeptic when it comes to spiritual mediums and such (especially those who wear earpieces throughout the show...?!)
I'm very glad I went though, it was an... unusual experience! And the childhood memories of watching 'Most Haunted' with the bro and sis came flooding back. I decided to get a picture with the man afterwards with my sister, just to make my Uncle jealous... bwahahaa. I'm pretty sure it's the creepiest picture I've ever been in, for so, so many reasons.
