My awesome custom thermos  
I'm very happy about what I made. I've been holding this thing and playing with it all day. But before that. We went to the dollar store and I bought a five or six thermoses you can put your drawings on. I got them for two reasons. One the obvious. I want my own art on them. Two, the insides are black which are perfect for rooting nepenthes cuttings of which I started several ventratas. The water method is the easiest but the pay off is it's the longest. It takes about six months to root so I have a long wait.

Anyway I made a template today and used the Owen Runs drawing as a test. I printed it on normal paper. Here's how it turned out.

Thagirion & Owen thermos

Despite being faded because it's on regular paper I'm Thrilled about this! I can print these on glossy photo paper and they'll be great!! I've already made templates for my drawings of The Sorrion Song, Sorath and the Solar Flare, Owen drowning & Driving the Devil. I'll be adding these to my list of commissions as well. So if you guys would like me to draw something it's the price of my regular commissions plus $3. Shipping depends on how many you get if you order more than one so let me know.
I want to print some with nepenthes on them since that's what I'll be using them for mainly. That means I have to draw up some neps and color them. Perhaps some of my plant buddies would like them.

And I finally made another video of our trip. I'm so behind on these. This is from Lucayan National Park Ben's cave. I think I only have two more vacation videos to make and I'll finally be done with that.

Current Mood: giddygiddy

The Thermos idea is neat!
I love Ben's Cave, it seems such a relaxing place.

Thanks. I'm very happy with it. It will be better when I print it on photo paper.
Yes it was beautiful and very relaxing.

What a great idea you had with those thermos' since it takes so long to root, you might as well have something nice to look at.

In the video at the beginning of the bus ride, what are all those straight looking stick like things along the road?

Nice vines and roots hanging down and it looks like some tillansias there also.

I love the krinkle and crunch sound while you are walking the path.

Yeah, definitely something nice to look at for the long wait.

Those are lone leaf pines like we have here but they were burned in a big forest fire. He told us they have fires all the time and they just let them do whatever because they're too much to put out.

Yeah there were lots of tillansias. Some along the path were in bloon with red and purple flowers.

I love cups that can be customized like that. They're great.

That cave looks so beautiful. I like that you were able to get a shot of the fish in it.

Yeah, they're so much more enjoyable that way.

It was my favorite part of our trip.
