Another day, another dollar...

...another Elder God waiting to steal your soul and cast its writhing essence into the abyssal depths of madness and despair.

Just a typical day in the Big City, really.

Thanks to Julie for the awesome photo- love it!

Emerald City ComiCon - Lady Cthulhu meets Mike Mignola
Hey look- it's Mike Mignola! My favourite comic artist, and a huge inspiration for me over the years. It's not every day you get to meet one of your heroes! He was absolutely lovely, and even looks a bit chuffed to have his picture taken with Lady Cthulhu... d'aww!

Emerald City ComiCon - Codex, Cthluhu, and denizens of the Whoniverse
These folks were great- we had a wonderful 'when geekdoms collide' moment! I love my fellow nerds... :) And doesn't Al make a lovely Codex?

Speaking of fellow nerds, three cheers for the best ComiCon road trip crew ever! :D

And now we just need to think of costumes for next year.. hmmm...

I draw on bananas now. Bananas are cool.

Sometime last year I decided it would be fun to try making some banana art. Generally, folks have accepted this new fascination without question. My friends are very understanding. ;)

Okay, there are a couple of commonly asked questions: 

1. How do you make these? 
You simply bruise the skin of the banana by scratching it with a pin, toothpick, or other sharp implement of choice. After a few minutes, the image will gradually start to appear as the lines darken.

2. Why Doctor Who? 
Well, the Doctor is known to be a fan of bananas. That seemed a good enough reason at the time.

4. No, wait a minute... 
3. Are you going to keep making these crazy things?
Oh, probably! Any requests? :)

We must feed... we must feed... we must feed you a banana.
