Briar Rose
Trying to get back into the swing of things..!  This is for IllustrationFriday, theme 'Rose'.  I was partly inspired by fairy tales, hence the name, although the result I ended with has less of the 'trapped by thorns' I'd originally thought of and ended looking a little more Poison Ivy.  Live and learn...


Current Residence: Under Down
Favourite style of art: Realistic/surrealistic
MP3 player of choice: Iriver
Wallpaper of choice: Something to do with whatever is my fave movie, tv show or book at the time
Skin of choice: Caucasion and comfortable! :D
Favourite cartoon character: Albert the 5th Musketeer ^-^
Personal Quote: "I thought I heard goldfish swimming in the gutter..."

Incidentally, I'm living in a lake

Alright, to be fair, I'm not actually living in a lake.  It's just that the town I live in was recently flooded, as has what feels like the majority of Australia.  (And most of the water has gone down by now anyway :D )

A week straight of rain falling on the roof does absolutely nothing for your washing basket though, I've discovered.

Dammit, this is AUSTRALIA, it's not supposed to rain here!

If nothing else, I've learnt that I, and I suspect a lot of other Aussies (particularly of my drought-accustomed generation) do not deal well with large quantities of water coming out of the sky.  What in the world are you supposed to do with it??

  • Listening to: Pendulum
  • Reading: Ghost Hunt
  • Watching: Media player visualisations @.@
  • Playing: Housewife
  • Eating: A tuna sandwich?
  • Drinking: Darjeeling tea

Sadly, I was recently kidnapped by pirates and forced into indentured slavery. However, this is frowned upon in modern society, leading to my release. Eh, or I might have been so caught up in RL that I basically haven't been near my accounts in about two years ^_^; How are you?? I think things were a bit chaotic last time I heard from you.
I've been fantastic! Shoot me an e-mail, I still have the same one, but yours never work :(
