Home Is Where The Yarn Is

Friday, May 15th, 2009

It can’t be said about me that I can knit or crochet. I tried once, but it’s not something I have the patience for. Having tried though, and having helped Amu out on some of her projects I have nothing but respect for those who have the discipline to sit down and make something out of thread and sticks. You’re essentially creating your own fabric to manipulate into what you’re trying to get out of your head. I’ve seen some things that challenge the idea that it’s less a craft and more an artform. This is one of those things.

Tossed in my line of sight by a good friend I was a teenager with, this blew me away. This is the sort of determination and creativity that keeps Amu and I here thinking of ways to improve the comic. This is nothing short of awesome.

Also, Photo Phriday will be up later this evening, but it WILL be up today. Promise.

Photo Phriday 26 – On Top Of Her World

Friday, May 15th, 2009

This ‘getting quite late’ version of Photo Phriday is all about Kunoichi, our new character. She’s got her stuff together and knows exactly what she wants out of life and is ready to reach out and grab it.

Not afraid of packing up and moving out, she hasn’t settled in one place long enough to make many friends. Next week we meet the one person she’s managed to latch on to.
