Killswitch 2: Try and Use a Mirror

 When Darcy Moore was nine years old, she died for the first time. It wasn't anyone's fault. Darcy was a weak little girl, a premature birth who never quite recovered from her awkward early start. No matter what her mother did or how much her parents spent on specialists, she remained as she'd always been: nervous, fretful, and asthmatic. No better, no worse. But things will happen, and shortly after her ninth birthday, Darcy came down with a case of winter pneumonia she just couldn't shake. So it goes, as Vonnegut would say. Everything was a haze of pain—pressure in her chest, dozens of injections and what felt like hundreds of doctors,

Film Review: The Three Musketeers (2011)

The Three Musketeers (2011) Directed by: Paul W.S. Anderson It's inevitable, in writing a review like this, that the current incarnation of Alexandre Dumas's classic tale be compared to its predecessors. I have to own up to being a bad lit geek and never having read "The Three Musketeers"; I am, however, very familiar with the excellent films based on Dumas's work, especially the 1973 film starring Oliver Reed and Raquel Welch. Unfortunately, compared to that standard, the 2011 film is a shoddy piece of crap. I wanted to like this movie. I really did. I'm unabashedly fond of several terrible films—Ghost Rider, for example—and t

My Bio
Hello! I'm writer and (very) amateur artist, and I'm exactly the sort of sad person that thinks this DevID is hilarious.

I go through phases in my life, usually based around what I'm reading, writing and researching at the time. The current phase is ancient Egypt, and it's lasted on and off for . . . oh . . . twenty-five years. The mania normally lurks below the surface, but I'm currently working on a book involving Egyptian characters and magic, and that gave it an excuse to run wild. Mea culpa.

Favourite Visual Artist
M.C. Escher, Burne Hogarth
Favourite Movies
The Mummy (I know, cheesy and inaccurate, but I love it anyway)
Favourite TV Shows
Classic Doctor Who, Top Gear, Horrible Histories, Rome, BTAS
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention, Dire Straits, Here Come the Mummies, Heather Dale
Favourite Books
Murder Must Advertise, Lamb, The Spell of the Yukon and Other Verses, A Death in the Venetian Quarter, Thief of Time

Merry Christmas, one and all.

Merry Christmas, one and all.

And I do mean it, whether you're Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, Buddhist, Hindu, atheist, take your pick. Even if the 25th holds no special significance on your calendar, I hope tomorrow is a great day for you--full of warmth, fun, good food, or just some nice relaxing time with a book or a favorite pet. 2013 has been rough for a lot of us, and I think we could all use a day of happiness. :) Hopefully 2014 will be better. Joyeux Noel et Bonne Annee!

First snow of the season . . .

First snow of the season . . .

. . . in October? OK, I should've expected the unexpected from Iowa, but this is a new one on me. It's not sticking, so it'll probably be gone in a few hours, but still this is a new one on me. Tsk, tsk. On the other hand, I can now dress up my desert trooper GI Joe in white winter camouflage and photograph him looking miserable in a snowbank. So I guess there's always an upside.

New scanner?

New scanner?

Good news! I ordered a new scanner, and it should be here in . . . oh . . . ten days or so. This means that I can hopefully start sharing art with you again soon. My old scanner broke more than a year ago; all of the drawings I've uploaded since then have been done by photographing them with my utterly awful digital camera and then drawing over the uploaded photos with a tablet--a roundabout and, quite frankly, terrible way to get them from me to you. I've also done some exclusively tablet-based drawings, but while I do enjoy playing with that tech, I'm still most comfortable with a pencil and a drawing pad. I have at least three pieces to s

Just saying hello. Love you and miss you my dear friend. :hug:
Hello, darlin'. :) :hug: I do check this sometimes, but I've been so busy with book stuff, I haven't got any time for drawing! I think of you, though. I hope everything is going well!
I should email you more. I understand no time for drawing. My work drains me to the point where when I get off work all I want to do is fall down. My poor muse is as burned out as I.
Things are going...well, not so good but I am doing my best to force some good from it. I have friends in need, some dire need, of some support.  Doing my best to help them while not falling apart my own self. We can but try.
Hope things are going good for you. Nice to know you think of me, i do the same of you. Best of luck and take care. :hug: :huggle: :love:
Thank you for the fave! Means a lot! :)
My pleasure. :)
Thanks for the Toxoviper fave! Much appreciated :D
No problem! I have a soft spot for Toxo-Vipers (they have an awful, awful job) and it's nice to see good art of them. :)
