The requests thing never worked very well for me or for anyone else. No one wanted requests except two people, and I got one of those done and then never finished the other.
I'm a bad person.
But I got a Wacom Cintiq 13" when I got my new computer, and so I went on a bit of a drawing spree as you can probably see from recent activity on this page. I've rediscovered the joy of drawing things that aren't people.
I bought a couple of cheap picture frames, the sort that have multiple windows in them. My aim is to draw some nice, generic pictures and print them out to put in the frames. Will see how that pans out, too.
Working a lot recently, cycling to and from work (which means about 30km a day of cycling). Also a bit sick at the moment, so not cycling this week. But all this currently means not a lot of time (unless I'm home sick like I was at the end of last week).
