Two things:

- The "Basics Matte Black" frames from AF are my favorite. And they're some of the cheapest.

- I should have known AyeJay was gonna drop in here and make us all sick.

Yup. It's the one my Millward OG ink was in, the over by my front door across from the bathroom. 8411, same frame. I love it. Way sturdier, too, than a lot of their more expensive frames.

It's the house I grew up in outside Boston. It was a great place to spend a childhood. It's certainly not cool and wouldn't make much money in a yard sale, but it's priceless to me. :D

I love this! :) My best friend is an artist and she's painted me a few things I have around the house. I'm going to snap pics of them and post 'em up here!

btw- my favorite house in the whole world is a yellow one with a black roof! I love where you grew up, as well! :)

I love seeing everyone's work! I'm more of a scientific illustrator. I don't draw directly from photos; I usually do a lot of sketches from life and take color notes in the field, then I might use photos as reference material to proof anatomy and things like that. This African cichlid was done during a course at the Steinhart Aquarium in San Francisco quite a long time ago. We had the course at night when nobody else was there--the fishes were amazingly cooperative and calm. This is color pencil. No photos were used for this one.

This is something a little more on my creative side. I did this after spending several months in SE Alaska doing wildlife surveys (watercolor). The color of this particular file is off.

Well, at least I contributed to part of that post, man, but too bad it was the last pic! Amazing. I wonder how many people are gonna know what they're looking at with that Abuse panel.

The abuse dated 98 on a superheavy piece of rusted metal with a primitive ray painted on the back. It's nice.b
