I am still trying to get out on break ... but there are definately worse places to be ... the really amazing thing is that i can email & blog from a place like this using only a mobile phone ...what is more important is the camera built into the phone , so i can also photograph & send in my sketches :)

time to rethink

this sketch has not scanned well
i've been travelling and so busy I haven't really had much time to sketching... worst the few sketches I've done are mounting up not scanned yet... thats beacuse the scanner here is my old clunker... it doesn't register delicate tone ay all well... I was hoping to use ths sketch as a new icon for the funbag fascination group... but i hit scanning difficulties (so whats new!)... and anyway it was time to watch the grand final (a real thriller won by the swans, sydney)... a match that will be remmeber for a long time i suspect

not forgetting, special thanks you to appaloosa, kelly & click girl for help and encouragement...over the past few day

Don't get excited... look closely they are not real... but this photo is very good all the same... great composition & tonal range

i must admit i have been neglecting my moderation tasks at flickr.... its just that there are so many boring "look at me" types... trolls... and opinionated wanna bees, I was simply getting tired of it.... glad to see a new group pop up... who could ignore an invite like this

Think your wonderful nudes can pass muster under the critical eye of your fellow flickrees and flickrettes?

Then come join us over at the DeleteMe-the NUDE ART group pool:

a slideshow... my most popular flickr'ings

i'm still on the road but its getting more civilized... i noticed this little snipet of code on blogger templates... thought I'd try it out... its a standard flicker applet so just move you mouse over the images to see the slidwhow controls

i'm looking for a robust template that can handle comments nicely.. unfortunately my 2 euro is about to run out... such is life

Not sure if this will work ... one thing that struck me in arche was the civility of the victims ...rumah = open house

phone pinups

I have started making phone wallpaper out of my most viewed sketches on flickr... if you have the technology you download to your phine you can try downloading these (below)... I will also make these available on my myphone blog...

The biggest problems is i don't know if there is a "right" size for phine wallpapers.... so for this lots I'm starting out with a 320 by 320 pixel "square" format... does anyone know a lot about mobile phone images, formats... I'm kinda guessing everything

still for an old bloke I have manages to come a long way... technically speaking... over the past year... still blogging via mobile phone & publishing my "girls" on mobile phone screen does seem an honourable task for an old bloke
