Something for the Weakened

I done drew a pitcher

Thursday, May 13th, 2010 by Alastair

Well, I didn’t expect it to look like this.

That’s cobblers, of course. Since the server shift I’ve had this design vaguely sketched out in my mind and it’s only this week that I finally got round to actually committing pen to paper, paper to scanner and scanner to someone actually capable of making the whole thing work (thanks Frags). Feel yourselves lucky that I didn’t go for the naked self portrait idea instead (though that is no guarantee that I won’t in the future). I’m slightly unsettled that the spectacles look a little too much like sunglasses, but I might try and sort that when I attempt a colour version. Oh yes, that’s right, there’s going to be some colour on this wretched site for the first time in nigh on six years!

Having just had a looksie, it’s six years and two days since the first actual post here, though that was a test by Rob (Uber), so I refuse to count it as the anniversary. Nothing against Rob (Uber) or anything, but this is all about me, dammit, ME, ahem, and my typings better than his. The anniversary of the first actual post with real words and thoughts and that in it is eleven days away. Perhaps I will bake a cake. Or have some sort of shit competition. Who knows? Not I. Details will follow when I work out what they are.

Now I just need to work out how to get the fnords back
