is it okay now?

I changed the background. The template still looks wrong on my mac, but at least I can see the text now. It seems to work ok on both our pcs. I'm not sure why it would display differently on different computers, but if anybody knows the reason, please let me know so I can fix it. I don't really know much about html, so I'm doing everything by trial and error. lalalala.

some things are green...

Dog walking girlies... This is a character sktech that was inspired by a short story ("Oh Joseph, I'm so tired") I read a while ago.
green girly.

last of the cards

Here's the last of the birthday cards.
It was for my sister, who just turned 21. Way too old to be displaying this kind of behaviour.

(Actually, I drew the picture of the girl on the beach and then decided to turn it into a birthday card. I wasn't sure how to relate the picture of a child playing in the sand to turning 21, so I just added in some poop. Basically there are some things that are universally funny, and poop is one of them. Other things that fall into this category are fart jokes and men dressing up as women.)

skunks in love

Nothing quite says "Happy Anniversary" like skunks in love. It's, like, a metaphore.

The colours didn't really scan very well...I've noticed this is a reoccuring problem.

Animals are cute

These are some birthday cards I made recently. The subject matter is inspired by a recent trip to Tofino. It was really incredible up there. We were with my parents, so we got to do the touristy stuff like sea kyaking and whale watching.
Wild life sightings report: grey whale, humpback whale, sea otters, seal, starfish, anemone, murres, some other things that live in the ocean, bald eagles and some seagulls.
I decided to feature the otters. Why? because they are the cutest.

Speaking of sea otters.... I took my parents to the aquarium while they were in Vancouver, and my dad and I were watching a sea otter playing with a pool noodle. Then I hear this kid say, "is that it's penis," and I was thinking to myself, "no, stupid. That's a pool noodle." But then the sea otter faced me and I realized that the kid wasn't really that stupid. The sea otter was definitely having a sexual encounter with the pool noodle, and continued to do so the whole time the beluga show was going on next door.

I decided not to feature that scene on the birthday card for my grandfather. The sea otters in Tofino appeared to be very chaste.

There is one more card that belongs with this post, but I didn't get a chance to scan. Hopefully my sister will be so kind to scan it and e-mail me the file.

Jumping on the pirate bandwagon

Here are some things that are re-posts from the class blog. I'll post some more new stuff soon.
I thought it was pretty amazing how many people posted pirate stuff after the movie came out.
Here's my contirbution to the craze. Next time you watch "Dead Man's Chest" look carefully, because the bunny and beaver have difficult-to-see cameos.
