American WereWolf and Hank

that's what I'm watching now and what Hank is listening to. I must say, this movie is quite amazing the way they make him transform before your very eyes. Rick Baker (artist and make-up man, I commend you!)

Anyways, for more pressing matters -Hank! He is doing wonderful. He got his stitches out on Monday, which is absolutely fantastic! He's doing fantastic and if it weren't for those missing eye balls, no one would ever be able to tell that he can't see. Yes, he does run into the occasional open door, step stool, vacuum cleaner, purse, etc. But he makes his way around exceptionally well besides those few "rough bumps"

There Hank Williams is without his stitches!

I want to celebrate Halloween with him and take him trick-or-treating, but I have no clue what kind of costume to put him in. I also wanted to wheel him around in a rusty red wagon I have from my childhood to save him from the burden of walking around aimlessly... But no idea what to dress him up as yet. Any ideas? I don't much care for Ray Charles, but I'd love to make him a costume with a "fake body" and hands that are playing a piano. Plus he'd look great with some black custom fitted glasses!

Now for momma.
- I've been stuck in my search for cars. Plenty of things on craigslist, but whenever I find something I am actually interested in, it's already been sold by the time I contact the person. Yes, things sell that fast at the highest price of $1700.. Boo. Right now there's a man near my town selling a sporty 1989 Honda prelude.
My brother, sister, the man selling it and I are going to bring it to a mechanic tomorrow. It blows only hot air, no cruise control, passenger side window doesn't roll down, passenger seat belt is broken.. But what can I say, I really like this car so far.. I'm hoping there's nothing major going on with that A/C.. Like the compressor needs replacing or radiator or whatever else doesn't have to be replaced.. Maybe just add some Freon and it'll be A-OK. I pray that's ALL.

I'm also working on a new project
A big basset-y picture. 16"x20"
Looking  good so far? let me tell you, the hardest part has been blending in the chest along with that left leg towards his back.
The wrinkles have been fun :) I'll add a blue-square shaped border around the outside area to add more dimension. This has been really fun to paint. I haven't painted a picture larger than 8" x 12" inches since last year. Just haven't felt the motivation.. I always flake out on painting. I hope I finish this because I'm pretty stoked on how well it's turned out so far.

and here's another picture I'm working on in colored pencil. Not too proud of it unfortunately.. I'm missing the right colored pencils so I haven't been able to do it the exact way I've wanted it.

  1. You've got some talent! I can't draw a stick figure :(

    Glad to hear Hank is adjusting to his world. He seems like such a sweetheart.
