Beware the Ninja!
I’ve occasionally been overheard to say that I have no artistic talent whatsoever, usually adding that I have problems with stick people. But that’s not quite true. In fact, it’s all a lie. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Ahem. Well, not all, but mostly. I’m not much of an artist, but I do okay with stick people. Witness the Renaissance Ninja:
He’s part of a larger work that I’m trying to find a way to squeeze into the header of the new blog/website. I started sketching the RN when I first picked the title. I’ve got him sitting at a computer (as above), playing a saxophone, looking through a telescope, trying to clip a Guinea Pig’s toenails… not the easiest thing to draw with my level of talent, I promise you.
But the point is that I drew him myself.
Which is kind of the point of the new blog, or at least part of the point. It’s a major goal for me to continually try new things and to make sure they add some fun to my life and my family’s. The kids all find my ninja amusing and even my wife (who’s actually an artist, with talent and stuff) said the larger picture is pretty good. Made me all warm and tingly.
So the ninja will hang around for a while, but mainly at the new website, where you can see the entire picture the ninja is part of. Speaking of which, the new sight is where new posts are going to go from now on. I will crosspost here for a while, but that won’t last forever.
Hope all is well with everyone.
