Here's a little something - surprise!

Well, the surprise is there's nothing to surprise you with.

So clever! Ah-hah......
Moving on then.

Ever do something by mistake and it turns out to be a pleasant surprise?
Yeah, I don't do that very often anymore.
Good thing I'm not a magician..then again, it seems the stories I know of, when they
accidentally do something it turns out pretty horrible for anyone not in their party or
essential to the storyline..except maybe as fodder for the mistake.

Anyhow.. a happy surprise for a blind mage in a dark place:

Holy hellfire, Batgirl! Is March over already?!

Yeesh, where's this year going that it has to get there so fast?

I can't seem to draw worth shit lately.  Not enough practice or something maybe.. but there's a definite disconnect between brain and fingers and it is really starting to piss me off.  Especially because there's some work (self-appointed) coming that I want to do and if there's something I want to do, I want to do it well!!

Crappy days at work don't help either, and only a fool believes they can not be affected at home by how their workday goes and vice-verse.  Hard to want to sit and draw when I could veg out after having a day where you're rushed and tense and frustrated.  Day?.. hehn, yeah, let's go day...for now.

As for that funk I'm in.. it's still here, lingering like a torn muscle that refuses to heal properly.

I find I'm longing for my youth.. and what better way to reinvigorate oneself with some kind of something from their youth than music?  In that respect, I laugh at / feel bad for the kids today.. all their music is reproduced crappola with synth and "shock" and "messages" and basically, nothing.  How many kids, 20 years from now, are going to put on that bieber kid's noise and feel all nostalgic for it?
More than I care to think of, I'm sure.

Anyhow.. here's some Ratt - 'Round and Round' inspired quick art.
