yes I am alive, and happy to be so

I am really missing my blogging friends
I would like to give a special thanks to Teri C, aynaku, detlef, princessemerlin, lily and lucy white, anonymous and also the other anonymous, who I think is my sister but I haven't had a chance to check, (by phone of course)
and last but not least, by any means, jack dingler jnr otherwise known as weaseldog or thorn in the side of the powers that be and their minions,
for having come by and commented even though I haven't been out and about and commenting on their blogs.
I hope you can all accept a link instead. I love youse all
(I hope I haven't left anybody out. I bet I have. I will check later)

as for me, I haven't been doing anything except an enormous number of kilometres.
ironic for a peak oil believer.
but I have been doing them in public transport, and on my bike, (that's a human powered bicycle, or maybe a super human powered one, I certainly try)
I have done 3000 kms since I bought my new bike on saturday november 5, according to the blogging evidence. (and my cycling computer.)
I am joining a club, or peña as it is really, which is sort of like a small club, but affiliated with the organisations, to make it official. It's my first time.
previously I have done a heap of klms, but just with my cycling mate seton, and although we often went out with a group, I have never joined a club before.

time to insert another drawing, sort of a, um... I don't have a clue.

and a detail that lets you see how long it has been, if you look closely

anyhow I was really keen to do an hour or more on the trainer, to try and consolidate the gains of having stopped smoking cones.
(yes, you heard correctly, I have given up smoking cones, since wednesday I have been finally completely smoke free. yeah for me)
I am hoping that I can attack harder than ever, or more to the point, keep it up when I do.
I seem to have a habit of jumping away from the pack and then running out of steam and having to struggle to latch on as they all come past me again.
still lot of fun though.
I will leave you with another watercolour that took a month, or so.
it doesn't really reproduce well here.

a detail of same.

If anybody would like a high res version for a desktop or something, you only have to ask.
the painting itself is still availiable as well.
as are all the other works I have ever done, with few, very few, exceptions
that's what comes with being me.

I did draw some cats, in my agenda as I was rushing about on metros and buses, but I haven't posted to illustration friday.
maybe I will later. ( of course it's next week already. maybe the circles would qualify as glamour. :))

I really do love youse all

also, get firefox, if you haven't already.

10 minute blogging

It has to be. ten minutes that is
I have to get up in 4 and a half hours from now and I need to sleep and try and grow some new muscle cells

maybe that's what this work represents
I don't know. I had to leave it out of the exhibition back then ( the last exhibition that I have been involved in was a year ago and the next..
dog knows, but he's not telling me.

a detail from the above work, but amplified, as the whole thing is about the size of the image above, which is the whole thing. (the first image)(depending on the size of your monitor)

and maybe E is for .. .. ENI of course

and a now lost painting, lost when the self portrait that it was attached to was left in a bar by the courier charged with delivering it to the buyer in Greece.
lucky I didn't arrange that

this is the above-mentioned self portrait

roughly the size it appears above.
and a pair of details from same, greatly enlarged.

and the leaf

and a really weird one, also in grafite on gesso.

well it turned in to a forty minute blogging.
and I still didn't say anything

illustration friday must think I died.
