totally thankful!

Super thanks goes out to an anonymous commenter on my last post! My scanner totally works now!
So this year i'm thankful for working technology, family, friends, my pukey cat and house-hold cleaners.

Hope everyone in the US had a good Thanksgiving weekend! To everyone else, i hope the tail end of your November has been rockin'.

Na naaa nanananana na na na naaana nanana

A little while back, Jason sent me a link to this pattern for a crocheted magnetic katamari ball. I learned to crochet (thanks nicole!) just so i could make this ball.

For a first attempt it came together remarkably well! It was fun to make.

Ride the royal rainbow, little ball!

Yeah! Roll up all that business.

I have some actual art to upload, but trying to get CS4 to run my scan software has been a tiny nightmare.
Has anyone ever installed drivers for a CanoScan LiDE 600F scanner onto a mac and managed to get Photoshop CS4 to recognize the scanner and NOT crash every time you try to scan? i was able to install it no problem for CS2, but the issue for CS4 is it's no longer made with TWAIN plug-ins that are needed to recognize the cannon drivers. i managed to install them, and i can open the scan software in photoshop, but trying to preview the image crashes the whole program. maybe i installed something wrong, or maybe everything's just messed up in general.

blah blah blah. TECHNOLOGY, am i right?

Carry on

I realized the other day that if you sing it soft and slow, "Carry On My Wayward Son" would be a nice lullaby.

It was really weird drawing myself holding a baby.
I was drawing this while sitting in the theater waiting for 'Where the Wild Things Are' to start. I really enjoyed the movie, and wound up doodling this little wild thing on the same page in my sketchbook:

Hope everyone had a radtastic Halloween!
