I have all sorts of goodies spread around
my desks this week.
I have something rare first
I tidied the inking station,
well not all of it but hey,
that's a lot for me.
Stop looking at the mess in the background,
you were lucky to see the front bit tidy.
You'd better look now as it won't last long!
Here's the main desk
Back to the normal mess
but wait, there's something
Doctor Who added there!
Yes I know I'm sad but I couldn't resist
the sonic screwdriver pen and journal
and yes, that's a Tardis cup.
I added some water ripples to Mr P
but being the cheapskate I am
I used up all of the mixed glaze rather than waste it
and now he's been over rippled.
I'll have to glaze over some of that white (sigh).
Being a cheapskate is really not good
when you need to do sketches.
I have three sets of glasses.
One for seeing, sunglasses and reading glasses.
In this country it is actually cheaper than getting
graduated, self tanning (or as the boring people say,
light sensitive) glasses.
This seemed okay until I started to sketch
things a little further than my reading glasses could see.
Now I have to do this just to sketch
|Of course I look like this, you don't think I would forget to put all the wrinkles in, do you?|
and I have to tell you it ain't easy
to balance all that lot
on your snoz.
I have to lift my head up and down
to get the right lenses for which bit
I want to see and it gets really confusing.
Plus my parrot doesn't like
me looking stranger than normal
and jumps up and tries to pull
the glasses off my nose,
that leads to putting the wrong glasses
back on and I get really into a mess.
Now why don't I just get graduated glasses
for sketching, I hear you ask.
Well, that is my plan but you only get
one set of cheap glasses a year and
I've already had one this year,
so in my normal cheapskate way,
I've got to wait until next year to get them.
Until then it's double vision all the way.
Kinda gives a whole new meaning
to four eyes, doesn't it?
Watch this space for some updates
(well I hope)
on my plan to take over the living room.
(mwa ha ha).
Now you've seen mine,
hop on over to
and have a look at the other
desks around the world
this What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.
