This has been an - interesting - late summer and start of autumn.

On the 'up' side, the TIA/transient ischemic attack I experienced hasn't happened again, and I've got good reasons for appreciating my family. Lots of good reasons.

Not-so-'up' side, my father-in-law died last month. We're still dealing with the practical and emotional details which are following that. (… )

It has been some time since I checked in here. My hope is that I'll be doing so more often. Daily, probably not. More often than recently, I hope so. Life continues to be interesting. But good. And definitely not boring. ;)


Norski's Profile Picture
Brian H. Gill
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I mostly write and make the occasional bit of digital art.

I'm fascinated by three things: that which exists within the universe; that which exists beyond; and that which might exist.

One of my kids graduated from college in December, 2008, is helping her husband run a business, and both have a two-year-old keeping them busy; another is a cartoonist; #3 daughter is a writer; my son works at a discount store, and is developing a digital game with #3 and #1 daughters.

Operating System: Windows 10

Shell of choice: Oyster
Wallpaper of choice: faux spackle
Skin of choice: healthy
Favourite cartoon character: Donald Duck
Personal Quote: 'That's interesting.'

Norski has started a donation pool!
65 / 2,001
Your reason for donating points - - - is something you must decide for yourself.

Maybe it's the warm feeling you get when giving. Maybe you think encouraging me is a good idea. Maybe your reason is something completely different.

My reason for wanting points? Eventually, I hope to have enough to purchase a print from's Marketplace.

Why 2,001 as a goal? "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) is among my favorite films: and it seemed like a reasonable number as a goal, for now.

You must be logged in to donate.

Nello Brian! Thanks for finding and collecting my long-nosed dog hound... Once again, I have had a little time to indulge in an online class. I love the assignments. Now, I will probably be too busy to draw and paint full-time. sigh. someone must bake the bread!

Hi, Norski!  Thanks for collecting my Hurricane Lost. Been a bit slow to create lately due to shifting work flow. Now up again as I retake the reins, and am removing wallpaper from my studio walls. Yay! Soon I will have a "clean" place to work!

Thank you for adding “John Streak Goes to Tahiti” to your favorites. I am afraid that I have inflicted my sense of humor and storytelling onto poor :iconkyuubi55:  and her Original Character.

And thank you for adding “Junkrat revs up” to your favorites.

While I do not do a lot of gaming myself I have been on the periphel for years  by doing art for people and on a few occasions for the games themselves
