Holiday Games

This is the time of year when family gathers to celebrate. A great excuse to break out the board games, play football, or participate in any one of a thousand forms of entertainment.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

How many games can you find?

Super Doodle #1

When I don’t have it in me to write – I draw. It keeps the old brain focused. This is something I’ve been working on for about a week off and on. I call it a Super Doodle. Incorporating all the different elements into the drawing was fun, although taxing. My Sakura Micron pens allowed me to blend at least 26 unique components into the piece, with some areas that are three dimensional. To tell the truth, I’m pleased with the end result.

How many scenes, objects, and creatures can you locate?

All Terrain Crawler

It’s been a while since I posted any art, and I have felt guilty. It’s just that there is so much time spent on promotion, there doesn’t seem to be much left. Anyway, this is an oldie but a goodie. Something I did many years ago, and one of my personal favorites.

I can picture myself (and fellow adventurers) exploring new planets, happily traversing the landscape without a care in the world.

Rock Painting

My granddaughter is into rock painting, and is experimenting with paint markers. She’s a chip off the old block. These are mine. You can’t have them.

Our Tiny Blue Dot

A view from space of the only known habitable planet. One would think we would appreciate the complexities and fragility of  our world. There have been cataclysmic events in the past. However, we weren’t around to affect the change.

Space Elevator

My current interest (when I’m not writing) is ink drawings, sometimes referred to as line drawings. I love the contrast.

Space elevators are only theoretical at this point in time, but in the future – who knows?

Sometimes it’s interesting to see what a black on white drawing looks like reversed. Which do you find most appealing?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Save the Elephants

The world is a complicated place. Science makes new discoveries daily, and still we know so little. Who can say that the extinction of elephants would not have an affect on us? I believe if there was no market for ivory the problem would be half solved.

Christopher’s Journal (Update)

Christopher’s Journal (Prequel to The Al Clark Series)

Chris is nursing a badly sprained ankle and has time to kill, so he created his own Chessboard and pieces. He and his father played chess when Chris was younger and those days he remembers fondly. Playing against himself is not as fun, but it passes the time. The diagrams at the top helped to reintroduce him to the game.

He cut the chess pieces from paper, with the ‘black’ pieces dyed using coffee grounds from a pre-packaged breakfast. Although crude, it’s good enough to play the game.

The Excalibur Habitat Ring

Christopher’s Journal (Prequel to The Al Clark Series)

Christopher is alone, and trapped in the habitat ring of an aged colonial starship. He doesn’t know if the rest of the colonists are sleeping or dead. He is unsure what to do. This scenario was not covered at the Spacer’s Academy.

This is another drawing from his journal that documents his predicament. To help maintain his sanity he must find ways to stay busy and kill time. Drawing not only kills time, it helps ward off going crazy.
