12/05/12 Yuri Steps Out


The strip of Yuri going down to Carpsellon is here (from here).

The holiday is nearing! As are any order you might wish to arrive in time! My work can be found at Topatoco!

Been busy. Today I went to a choir concert of the Adirondack Voices which was quite nice, although I kind of wish the gentleman next to me didn’t feel the need to hum along. I know, I’m a party-pooper, right?

The new apartment is settling in. We finally have internet. I lost a few hours of brainless distraction, but I’m over it and running.

I went to the drawing studio again. I intended to just mess around with acrylics, but Maureen (who also goes) had some water-soluble oil paints. How does this make sense? Anyhow, I gave up oils because of the turpentine and all that, never having a well ventilated enough area. But I may be back in business. Anyhow, below, the first two are acrylic, the last oils.

    Love the comic, but I wish there were navigation buttons above it instead of just below, so I didn’t have to scroll down to click back and find where I left off. I try not to read it while doing that, but it sort of gives things away sometimes.

    @Kathleen, yeah. Me too. I hope that in ways, that’s part of what makes it special.

    @Jabberwok, sorry about that. I had moved them recently, and forgot to move them back. Done!

    @Amanda, emulsifiers! πŸ™‚

    @Tom, ha! With the ears as hornds, I can see it. But, no. I mean, I noticed it when making it and was pleased with it, but it was not my direct intent. Originally, she was supposed to be blue, actually, after Kali the goddess. Blogged about that here.

  4. Christopher

    @zb, actually, I’m not sure if that’s correct. He’s implying a quotation of “five” abbreviated from her “see you in five” but he is substituting “six.” At first I just bolded it, but I wasn’t sure I liked that solution any better. πŸ™‚

  5. M.A.

    Oh dear, I’m afraid I’m one of those obnoxious people who hum during live performances — I stop when I catch myself doing it, but I suspect I don’t always notice. Sorry…
