The latest drawing. Cactus flower. I had to press firmly with a harder wax core colored pencil (Faber Castell Goldfaber white) to get the center highlights to stand out enough.

I made Mint Black Raspberry Ice Cream starring ingredients from my backyard garden.

Odd combination, I'll admit, but it worked out surprisingly well!

I made a custom toy of one of my favorite spaceships, the Stargate PuddleJumper:

Dialing in to an abandoned Asgard workshop, the SG-1 team found that the Dial-Home Device they'd seen via the remote MALP was simply the empty shell and they were unable to return to Stargate Command.

Investigating the workshop Teal'c activated an AI copy of the Asgard weapons designer Tiwaz that told them he had been backwards-engineering a ruined Ancient Altairan Gateship (also known as a 'Puddle Jumper') to learn secrets of Ancient technology.  While both the Asgard AI and the Gateship were from relatively early in each species' galactic-level development O'Neill and his team knew there was much to learn in their ongoing battles against the Ori Remnants and the re-Risen Goa'uld god Osiris, who had completed the full Circle of Ascension.

Under the Tiwaz AI's instruction, the SG-1 team was able to rebuild the Gateship with included Asgard technology to provide them a ship with different capabilities than the Gateships recovered from Atlantis, which O'Neill promptly christened 'The Minnow' for reasons known only to him.

The Minnow has advanced Asgard teleportation 'beaming' emitters and a limited Hyperdrive, but lacks any Altairan Drone weapons.  Alternatively the ship is capable of beaming the space-worthy engines/Hyperdrives into place between the ship and the wing panels, as well as exterior manipulator arms for work while in the vacuum of space.

"Cascade" (watercolor) I did this last fall. I wanted to try something a bit more "impressionistic" that wasn't based on a photo or a still-life, so this is what I thought up.

The conclusion of that drawing I'd been showing off on the hockey threads.  Done entirely on Photoshop on iPad and PC.  Took around 12 hours total (first image of this sort I've done entirely digitally.)

Carving this week. This was fun. A friend grabbed some free mulch and brought me 3 pieces she thought had potential. This was basically a stick. I had shown her the kinda chip I've been looking for and she did well except for the stick. Then I thought I can work with that. A fun challenge. about 2 hours total maybe 3

I do not claim to be an artist.

I'm trying to learn to work with watercolors. These are based on some sketches and photos taken on a recent trip to Scotland. I'm having trouble with the one with the tree, I've attempted that one three times so far. If anyone wants to recommend a good YouTuber or book I'd love a recommendation.

You have some nice compositions going. And it looks like it was a wonderful trip!

American Watercolor has some fantastic tutorials and other useful info https://americanwatercolor.net/category/watercolor-tutorial/

I still have a few of the magazines from years ago. They're a great resource and helped me a lot. I'm still learning too.


Thank you for the recommendation! That looks helpful and inspiring.

That is a craft, good call.
I just started cold crashing today.

I see green stuff in there. Did you dry hop it?

That's adorable that your daughter wants to help. My kids didn't much want to get involved, but I did always let them take a sip when it was done. They're in their thirties now and enjoy a beer as much as I do.


I dry hopped 45g mosaic and 20g citra. In the past I've racked the beer, cleaned my carboy, and dropped nylon bags full of hops in the carboy then raxked back to the jug. I wanted to try something new and hopefully easier so I added the hops directly after terminal, am crashing now and will rack with a big nylon bag covering the racking cane. *fingers crossed*
Kegging would be great, but we don't have the space, and I'm not quite responsible enough to have a keg of my beer available. I have to brew in my kitchen, so the whole operation is done with 3 5gal stockpots. I'm a relative newb, but we make great beer.

I craft beer as well.

The brewery (a work in progress). I've since added sight glasses to the HLT and BK, and thermometer to the BK. The propane burner is not used, I've gone all electric. I've since removed it.

Three taps, but can't brew fast enough to keep three beers on tap for very long.

Delicious. Cheers!

Nice! I like the mood and setting. What's the story behind it? What's your usual medium of choice?

Glad someone asked:

Medium:  entirely digitial (Photoshop on iPad and PC).

BG:  Two characters of mine, Leon (left), Ashley (right).  It's a cutscene-esque illustration from a game idea of mine.  Leon is the main protagonist who's stranded on a drifting artificial world and meets Ashley.  With no other  choice, the two journey together and are of clearly different backgrounds.

Here, the two wind down at a dump of a bar Ashley is familiar with.  Leon is bothered by Ashley's attitude following a nearly blown mission.  She makes her drinking no secret and it nearly got them in a world of trouble.

Cool! How is it working between each of those digital tools? Relatively easy? I've seen friends do some fun stuff on iPad, but I know some tablets can be finicky with competing platforms/software.

Your story is intriguing. What kind of game is it going to be? Thank you for sharing!


The idea is for an action-rpg.  This particular episode has a  "twenty minutes in the future" setting before Leon ends up on the artificial world (which is modeled after a huge McKendree cylinder).  Leon and one other character are the ones stuck there and they eventually have to get to the bottom of why the world has drifted into their star system.  To complicate things further, the state of things on the artificial world is pretty shiatty.  Ashley is something of a product of her part of the world here.

Leon's world is in a state of peace at the moment and they're monitoring the approaching artificial world.  He and one other were sent on a second contact mission to the structure but lost contact with their home just before arrival.
