pen pals

So, I received the first letter from one of my pen pals that I found on Interpals. (Which is a social website that allows you to find penpals). This is what my letter looked like when it arrived.

Information is blurred for privacy.

Adorable isn't it? Anyways, then I opened it and was delighted by everything I found inside.

I am really excited about this new friend. She is creative and inspired. Just what I like in my life. I am off to go send her something right away.

new hair color

I had a hair coloring accident. I wanted to stay blonde for a little while, however the toner I used reacted with my hair strangely. (I think it was a bad batch.)

Therefor, I added purple to my hair. This made it a white/purple mix. YAY! Best accident ever.

comic surprise

Recently, Andy introduced me to a local comics and games store. I was busy trying to find an appropriate gift for a HIGHLY intelligent twelve year old boy. (We ended up going with game CATAN since he is really into playing board games and solving puzzles.)

After I made my selection, I was strolling around looking at all the various sundries. Seeing as how I happen to be working on a project that involves Masters of the Universe art, I thought it would be appropriate to widen my horizons. Do some "market research". Surprisingly, something caught my eye. It was a comic series called Multiple Warheads.

I have never been into comics per se. I have dabbled in reading graphic novels and do like the Tank Girl comic series.

When I opened Multiple Warheads, I really was drawn in by the art. If Adventure Time, Tank Girl, and a Hayao Miyazaki film had a love child comic, this series would be it. From what I gathered, this is set in a post-apocalyptic world that is strangely affected by radiation. 

As a lovely parting gift, here are some more images of the interior art.
