Do you want to know how to make mojitos? Of course you do!
Add a large-ish handful of mint leaves to your mojito jug.
Add equal amounts of powdered sugar and lime juice (2-3 tbsps, depending on whether you remembered to buy powdered sugar or not).
add 8 oz white rum (you can use dark rum, but it will look rather alarmingly like swamp water)
add a few ice cubes.
pour your mojitos through a strainer into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Top with club soda. Or not, depending on how your day is going.
Makes 2 to 8. Depending on how your day is going.

It's a glass water bottle that we're using for mouthwash. Because I couldn't find a mouthwash bottle.

Yes, you should be frightened.

Especially for this guy. He's for James Gurney's "Art By Committee" of course - this months line was
"Randall's avatar was a tortoise."

I've got shopping bags instead! I really like these ones - they're from Shoppers Drug Mart, and they fold up into themselves, like the windbreaker I used to have when I was a kid (apparently they still make them )
For some strange reason, I've only seen these nifty shopping bags at one store, and I bought every single one they had.

And she did.
Like I said, she's kinda talented that way.

This is a little bread dough teddy bear that I've has since I was a kid. I think my mom might have made it, but I'm not 100% sure. If she didn't make it, she definitely took one look at it, said "I can make that" and then went off and created a bunch of her own bread dough ornaments.
Yes, she actually does that. It's kinda scary how good she is at it.

Buzzards circling a tax office seems rather symbolic...

Actually, the exercise did make me think of those 70's styrofoam ball and bead christmas ornaments. Perhaps I should draw one of those from life - it might help me get a handle on these @#$% circles.
Either that or I'm going back to the liquor bottles.

Looks a little like an olive on a swizzle stick.
I told you all these foreshortened circles would drive me to drink.

Which means I'm going to be spending the rest of the week drawing foreshortened circles.
These circles are a liquor bottle, a martini shaker, and a couple of shot glasses.
I can see those coming in handy.

Sometimes, I don't make sense even to myself.
Anyway, this is my submission to the monthly "Art By Committee" communal sketch-along hosted by the wonderfully informative, generous, and astonishingly talented James Gurney (what!?! you haven't been to his blog yet? GO, already!)
Now, back to less animated things.

Well, bigger than usual. As big as a... chair. Underneath a striped sheet. It's another drawing exercise - I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It's charcoal on bond paper, and took about 6 hours.
I've come to the conclusion that I am a "slow draw-er" (kinda like "slow food" only fewer calories).
I think I'll do some more things like this. They may not be my things, though. Perhaps I need to change this blog to "drawing everything I can get my hands on"?

I've spent the past couple of weeks working my way through the drawing exercises from "Drawing From Observation" - but none of the drawings have involved my things. Until now...
yep, it's my thermometer.
Bet you didn't guess that one!

Secret evil plan underway. watch this space.
actually, only two of the charms are owls - the one on the top left is a sort of abstract thingy from T. in Ireland... but it looked kinda owl-like, so I included it.
work with me, people.
