A $500 Cover Pose

I consider myself mostly retired from the cover pose game these days. But when Regina Yao of The Pixel Project asked me to help out with one of their fundraising drives, how could I say no?

A very generous donor contributed $500 to The Pixel Project for their work to end violence against women. For that donation, they got to choose a cover for me to try to duplicate. They decided to go with The Selection, by Kiera Cass.

Cover Pose for The Selection

Thanks as always to my wife Amy, who took the photo and helped me get the pose right. Which included positioning a large exercise ball between my legs to get the poofy-skirt effect…

In which Norman encounters two men who also loved Norma. It doesn't end well.

1. Next week I have to go to the Gardena store to help out with their mini remodel, which sucks, but my former coworker who now works at a different store is going to be there that day, too, and we've made plans to go out to eat afterwards and maybe karaoke, so I'm looking forward to that!

2. Jasper cuddles with Chloe all the time, and he's cuddled with Molly a handful of times, but he's never cuddled with both at the same time...until today! Carla saw the girls cuddled up together and Jasper off on the other sofa alone, so she picked him up and put him down with them, and he stayed there and they stayed there for at least an hour cuddling together!

sketch-a-day feb 2017

And here is the final version of the sketch-a-day project! Ack, have I really not posted an update since Feb. 7? I meant to do more WiP posts for this!

It was really interesting to do a whole drawing one isolated square at a time -- definitely good practice for my drawing and visualization skills. There are a couple places where my mental plan got a little off track, but overall I'm pretty happy with it, and it was very relaxing to sit down at the end of the day and cross-hatch. It felt something like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.

If you'd like to try it yourself, the March template is here: http://darthneko.deviantart.com/art/March-Sketch-a-Day-2017-666081351. Click on "download" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, and then print it out, figure out what you want to draw, and do a daily square! (Or two. I did keep getting behind and having to catch up with two or three at a time.) Thanks again to [personal profile] darthneko for making these available. :)

1. I didn't end up getting as much translationy stuff done today as I would have liked to, but I did get a good amount done.

2. I went through my closet and weeded out a lot of old shirts and a few sweaters that I never wear anymore. Like two loads of laundry worth of stuff. I also found some shirts I do like and will wear that had gotten pushed to the back somehow.

3. I read a lot today. I haven't been reading as much since going back to work, obviously, but I have managed to read some every day, which makes me happy.

4. I love when the cats get up on the shelves above the dryer. Right now it's one of the few places Chloe and Molly can go to get away from Jasper, so Molly was enjoying it last night.

I have been playing, off and on, with the idea that some of the Major Arcana of the Tarot is represented pretty clearly by the characters in Black Sails. I haven't found all of them, but I'm still thinking about it -- and maybe you'll see others.

This is what I see: behind cut to spare the uninterested. )

And now off again to drown myself in tea, I'm feeling miserable for entirely physical reasons. Boody cold.

1. Day off tomorrow!

2. If I really buckle down and work on it tomorrow, I should be able to get a chapter of Baby, Kokoro no Mama ni posted within February. (If not, it's not the end of the world, obviously, but I do like to try and post once a month!)

3. This is a silly Chloe face.
