Christmas and Art  
I'm quite happy with all the progress I have made. I got the tree up today as far as putting it together. Actually we bought a new tree yesterday because our old one, which was white, sadly turned brown in the heat of the garage. I will salvage the lights from it because I LOVE the blue on that. This one is the exact same tree sooo I'm a bit worried that it will also be destroyed in 3 years or so. We have no where to put it in the house during the hot months sadly. I did get ONE ornament on it so far and the star. It's the cute one of Phage ACTipton80 made for me. I also got some garlands up on the walls and cut outs. My gosh the Thanksgiving window clings are still up though. haha. They are the only things left to put away of the Fall stuff. MAYBE tomorrow I'll be done with all that. So I say I have the place half decorated now.

I inked a little bit today. I inked the Ugly Guys pic. Started on George. He's the last one so that's almost done. But the best part is I'm almost done with page 2 of Renegade. I just need to draw one more frame. I might be able to finish tonight if I can figure out what I want to show in that last frame. It's the scene for, "By the radiant moon he will strike". I'm imagining him leaping down from a building onto a bad guy but I'm having a hard time visualizing it. I want it to be a worm's eye view so you're looking up at the sky. I don't know I have a hard time with creative stuff like this because I get these ideas linguistically. I don't know how else to explain it because I really don't see pictures clearly in my mind. And that's the problem when you have Ni and not Ne and you are doing creative works. But anyway I'm sure I'll figure it out. I always do. I cope well with my "handicaps". I may draw more tonight. I also had an idea yesterday that I do see fairly clearly. I don't know why my mind throws scenes at me like this instead of stories. It's saying, "This is cool. Work with it and make something." It's frustrating and exciting all at the same time.

Anyway, the the idea is I see George in a sewer. He's all ripped up in hybrid form. He's hunched, breathing hard and holding one or both of his guns in his hands. There's a waterfall from a big pipe in the background with pretty glowing blue water, dirty water flowing past, a manhole in the ceiling casting light, and a rat in the foreground. I have no idea what happened to him but clearly he's had to retreat. I also like the idea that water might be an element that isn't good for him. It's not like he has a stupid weakness to it. But water isn't good for his guns. They're probably ineffective at this point so not good. Also in hybrid form he also breathes through his tail. He still breathes normally too so it's not like he'd grown or anything. But it makes me wonder if swimming is hard for him in this form. Perhaps not but he's a desert creature so I don't think he'd like it. Chris said this might be a fight with Malidicus where Malidicus has gotten the better of him. The two battle and get each other back and forth through the decades. And it's in modern time so he has desert eagles not peacemakers. I hope I can draw that.

Oh and annoying stuff for me. I can't find glossy card paper anywhere this year. Totally sucks. Luckily I have photo paper. But it's not going to be as nice because they don't have a natural fold. Also I need to make my own envelopes because of this. Sigh. So I need to make my template and start to print those. Very annoying. I found some on Ebay but it won't be here in time for me to send everything out.

I sent you a little package today, and it should get there on Monday. I don't remember if you have one of what I'm sending already, so if you do, you are getting another. No two are alike. I haven't made the drawing for your card yet, so it will come later. I think I have the opposite problem with drawing of your problem. I see what I want clearly in my head, but I lack the skills/motor coordination to get it onto paper.

Aw thanks. Ok well we'll see. I should be able to order your gift tomorrow and some of my other friends too. So you gift and card will be separate. Hum, well that means we would make a good team then. Hey you can use the budgie Christmas icon this time of year now. Mine reminded me.

Glad you have got your tree up. Mine is not decorated yet, either. I have to remember where I put the decorations! (I think I know). That sucks that you old one yellowed in the garage in the heat.

I thought George might be in a sewer because that would be a good place to hole up and recuperate. Your story (so far) sounds cool.

That sucks about the card paper. But photo paper will be fine. My ex uses that. Yeah, it's bad that it doesn't have a fold, though.

Well at least they are up. Seems several of us have tress up with no ornaments hehe. Yeah I love how white they are when new. They are cheap so don't last long I guess.

Yeah, he was probably a way for him to escape and rest.

Yeah I will work on those today and start printing.

We put the tree up and the decorations but haven't decorated the tree yet. Mum's been ill and now I have a cold so I feel crappy. It's really annoying.
I like the idea of George in the sewer, that will be fun to see drawn. I can picture it in my mind already!

Same here. Oh I hope you two get better then. I think it will be nice if I can draw it like I imagine it.
