#inktober #inktober2015 #drawingwithoutanet Started off this one sitting in the car in a dim carpark, book propped on the steering wheel, a 10 minute sketch saw the bones of the design, then I added stronger lines and very bad shading.



A unicorn is dreaming of public speaking - but everyone listening has a horn,  all the other unicorns and even a narwhal and a rhino, but the dreaming unicorn doesn't!

Cafepress are running a Hottest Item Contest between 200 seperate items, between 200 different shops. If ever you were thinking of buying the tote bag below, I'd love it if you were to do it between now and December 24th, Western Pacific Time.

It would make a great gift for a unicorn lover or an environmentally conscious person and it's in neutral colours. With just 50 cents mark up for me, it is very inexpensive, $13.49 USD.

The competition page is here, there are five pages of items, which seem to be keep being swapped around, so my one may not be imediately obvious.

Of course if you see something else you like, oh well, them's the breaks. :-)

Happy browsing!

This beautiful golden unicorn has a mischief making gleam in his eye.
This unicorn was originally drawn as gold on black, as above. For fun, I did a colour inversion to see what it was like, and the blue and white looked so nice, I thought I'd make it available. Original unicorn fantasy art by Alicia Smith.

I gotta stop it with these early mornings. Went to bed around 2am, woke around 7:30. I'm a bit yawny, and burneyed, but otherwise not too bad. I put the black and white version of Zephyr the Unicorn up in the shop, then Mum and I took Dad some food to get by on for the weekend.

Then we came back home and I rode over to gaming, where we had a Steveg and a Mark, and a Rob, and we played the Quest variant of The Tales of the Arabian Nights. Mark left while he was ahead (but before he got changed back into a human) and the rest of us pretty much tied a few turns later.

We might go to WA Salvage for Stuff, and after that we're going to the fishmongers for stuff for tonight's dinner. Only this time we must remember to take the DVD's.

Big yawn. Ooh! Shower's free!

Well, the contractors for Western Power have been and gone, and now we have underground power, and the linesmen have been and removed the power cable from the powerpole out the front. Hooray!

On the weekend, which I didn't tell you about yesterday, what with one thing and another, we did a bit of shopping out and about for dessert. We also hit Home Base, where we were looking at security doors. Then we drove to Poss's, and only managed to remember one DVD. D'oh!

But it was alright, we had plenty to watch any way! We watched Through Fire, Water and Brass Pipes, another wonderful Russian fantasy fairytale by Aleksandr Rou - Baba Yaga's out for revenge against Kashchej the undying because of the slight to her daughter - the way these films bring together these exciting characters well known to anyone who reads Russian fairytales is a joy. And they do it right, okay, some of it is pretty pantomine (not that there's anything wrong with that!) but they have the right elements, Kashchej keeps his life in an egg, hidden - Baba Yaga has her wonderful chicken legged house etc. Charming!

And we watched Black Books, Space 1999 and a very cool episode of Randall and Hopkirk (deceased) set in a hotel where too many people are checking in, but not out again...

I think that's all we watched.

Any rate the next morning, I can't really remember what happened...um. Oh, yes, we had brunch, Rob cooked us pancakes with maple syrup and bacon and then he had to work. Then we all drove to Hillarys, where we fished for a bit. We didn't get anything, but a toddler being helped by his Dad caught a huge leatherjacket. Over 30cms! Some of the old crusty fisherman who'd been there all afternoon were a bit put out by that. But Dad and kid were thrilled!

I've just cooked a roast chicken with lemon and 5spice and honey. Very nice for lunch with rice and tarragon carrots, and greens from the garden.

That's it for now, going back to drawing this latest unicorn, poor thing, it's been interrupted so much lately.
