Bloogels from the Basement

A chilly breeze changed yesterday evening and with it came a sound so harrowing it made my tympanic membrane want to crawl further into my ear. I hesitantly ventured to the basement's basement. A place I have yet to go. I found remnants of a dark dungeon at the end of a crooked staircase. At the far end of the dungeon hiding behind the cupboard of gloom, I found a family of Bloogels.  I picked them all up and now I have them in a jar with plastic wrap over the top (with holes in so they can breathe). After further examination and research I have realised it is these Bloogels that have prevented you all from commenting on the blog. Now I have captured them, the blog is comment friendly. 

Go for it and comment away! 

The blog is all on ONE page now. Now you can watch all your favourite movies on one page! Also, on Macs you can hold down ctrl and scroll and the page will move closer, making movies full screen,  I think you can do this on PCs too, but I won't use them! 
Did I mention I wanted you to comment?

The Nipper

Recently I have been reading two very good books about skateboard art and the history of skate graphics. I decided to scan in my favourite ones from my own skateboard youth and play around with them. I had the idea for this one as the letters from the original 'Bones' logo (1984)called "The Ripper" were very similar to 'Ben's'. I have been teaching myself photoshop as another tool to add to my belt, and I think I am very slowly getting the hang of it. 

So, here it is. My first real photoshop project is now finished. It's called "The Nipper".

Record Breaker?

How much things change! We have been going through changes everyday it feels like and the wee man is growing, growing, growing. He continues to be the happiest boy in town and smiles and laughs his way through most days. As you may have seen from the latest film about the prophet "Benjamin", he can turn over and can spend, well minutes, on his tummy gazing up at the world. His arms are strong and he's all but ready to start doing push ups but only girls (very un-pc) ones as he can't get onto his feet yet. He is creeping his knees up ready to get into crawling position and any month now he will be crawling into the record books for some crawling activity.
I saw this week that the World record holder for the longest finger nails in the world was in a terrible car accident and had to have her nails removed. That has started me thinking...at the incredible rate Benji's nails grow, I reckon there's only about 10-15 years before he gets into the record books for that too! 

Watch this space, maybe you could e-nail me back?
