Yesterday was a frustrating evening. James spent a good hour trying to fight a level boss--a giant purple demon woman in a thong and copper nipple armor, who flung hot pink fireballs--and I labored for about four hours on a figure that the gearworld ultimately didn't want in it and which had to be scrapped. Then I spent another half hour slapping scribbles in to see what DID want to fill that space, before finally settling on--surprise, surprise--another gear. (What're the odds?) Of course, by then I was too tired to actually paint it, and so staggered off to bed to dream in Ninja Gaiden format, of being trapped in the Unseelie Court and discovering that some unscrupulous individual had been selling fairies as slave labor to sweat shops. They were being stored in little silver pillbox-things until they were needed, and I had to track 'em down and rescue them or the other fairies were going to kill me. There was a Native-American-esque fox spirit (cheesy, I know. Damn you, subconscious!) a coupla assorted Irish werewolves, a were-elephant (okay, that was kinda cool) a grab bag of trollish things, and, for some odd reason, silverblue (who may be bemused to know that my subconscious decided she was in the Unseelie Court, and furthermore making Nikes in a sweatshop somewhere. I got no idea either.)

But hey, thems the breaks. Today is another day, the rain has rained, the trees are dark and soggy, and the highlighter-headed woodpecker looks like something you'd put up to warn traffic to go around. And I must put the gearworld on hold for at least part of the day, and finally finish Mr. Clean if it kills me.

The things you have written of your Gearworld remind me of China Mieville's Perdido Street Station.
Muses will take you to lots of different places.

do you have any gearworld stuff posted anywhere?

Other than the paintings of it, or those?

Either. I looked through your gallery on the site and didn't see anything I'd think of as gearworld, and you'd said this was a recurring thing. I wanted to see it. I guess I could just be patient under the hopes you'll finish this bit or bob and post it.. maybe. heh

There're others, but they're mostly old and crappy or permanently unfinished. Although I should really revisit the one with the fishes in the tubes....

Y'know, I'm not really sure. It may well be.

ok, so I am just blind. Thanks. Heh. I like the Bad Egg one, though. It's cute!

Interesting. Very almost Brom.

Completely random here, but have you done any more of your sculpture stuff? You've not mentioned it of late and I was wondering...

I've got a slug warrior about half finished, but it was frustrating me, so I went back to 2-D for awhile. Since it's not my primary art form, I don't want to push it--I need to really enjoy it to do it, I think. So probably I'll get back to it the next time I'm frustrated and bored with 2-D (a situation that occurs with regularity.)

Ursula Your imagination is awesome. I would probaly never wake up if I had it to entertain me.
Were Elephant hee hee

Hmm, very possible, very possible. The Nikes, I mean - modern day shoe making elves, of course!

And...naturally I'm in the Unseelie court. Grin!
