Weren't expecting that, were you?

I bet you were scared. Anyway, hello! I'm back after some time, again. I'd like to post more drawings instead of just informing you that I'm "back" only to disappear for eons but you see there's half a mitten and three balls of wool in the only space where my drawing tablet could ever possibly go and apparently moving The Wool is a problem for me. It was a project and I refuse to accept defeat. I made a deal with myself that I'd finish the mitten and get it out the way and the space would be free for the tablet but then I accidentally my money at a market and now I have nepalese yak mittens (ty, yaks) and demand has fallen for air-conditioned blue mittens in the house. The outlook is bleak.

I'd also like to point out that there's been a lot going on with work and the kind of art I post on my blog cannot be rushed, my friends. I will have you know that some thought goes into it. But mostly it can't be rushed because I have some sort of OCD hangup about the abandoned mittenlet.

I don't want my blog to die, though, so to counteract the effects of my oddly anal prioritising I intend to post a few non-drawing things. I keep trying to forcefully impart the recipe for Gypsy tart on people around the net, but so far I haven't had much success. So, as the rules of the Internet state, when you can't get people to listen to you, you post on your own blog and sit defensively on it muttering that this is YOUR blog and you can do what you want and suchlike.

I can say with almost certainty that there will be a gypsy tart on the horizon, as my mum is smuggling me some shaky (evaporated) milk when she visits in a couple of weeks. I'll probably post a recipe anyway as there aren't that many online and it's quite rare (despite the utter awesomeness of the tart). However I'd feel really nice and popular about it if I knew someone actually wanted to read it :D So if you feel like that person, leave me and my feeling of self-worth a comment.

In the meantime here's a picture of my dog. Because it's MY BLOG and I can do what I want and suchlike.
