She’s a little further along, but she’s not quite finished yet. I intend to do a bit of painting tomorrow – today I was busy on other things.
And for my Second Life friends – I’ve released a little something for the 4th of July! Ok, so I might be Australian, but who am I to ignore all of my American customers? I can’t do that. Besides, any excuse for a tasty digital treat is quite alright with me.
I’ve done something special with this one too. This special holiday popsicle comes in both regular and petite sizes, to satisfy my customers of every size!
Teleport to Sanu to to grab yours for just 1l. It’s in the blue and red gift box by the giant bunnies. Happy 4th of July, everybody!
As is the way, names for things often differ from place to place. When I mention that I’m going to go drink a spider, when I say it to someone who isn’t from Australia, I’m likely to get a few raised brows. Understandably so, I suppose. Anyhow, that is why I drew this picture today. Its my own awesome concoction! Skully spider with whipped cream! Actually, the one I had was a raspberry ripple vanilla ice-cream in raspberry soda… it was delicious.
Alrighty… onto the Sanu stuff for today.
In case you haven’t had the chance to see, the Sanu store has had a reworking out the front. A friend of mine went ‘Oh no! I’m going to get giant ants!’ when I dropped a giant gummy bear at her home… and thus the giant bunny-ants were born. This, however, is a far smaller shoulder-pet sized one… with a bow!
And there’s the signage for it. Not overly inspired, I know… but they’re a bit hard to photo. They look freakin’ awesome though, promise! I’m thinking of trying my hand at bunny butterflies too. How cute would they be, huh?
Anyhow, that’s it for today, I think… I have some ice-cream monocles to finish up, and then some lollipops to photograph, and, and and… it never ends!
Another day, another little something for the site! Today a sketch – I’ve been a little lazy with Second Life today. That said, if you’re in a creative mood today, I suggest you head over to my Sanu flickr account and name the ice-cream. Go onnnnn… they’re full of ice-creamery goodness!
In honor of thinking about ice-cream all day, I would like to posit that ice-cream does really grow on trees. At the very least, it does when I says it does. Money does too, so long as the boundaries between reality and my imagination are well and truly blurred, and there is no need for me to actually spend said money from said money trees. After all, lets face it – nobody wants rotting leaves in their cash register. Its just messy.
Actually, when you think about it, if money did grow on trees and the money grown on said trees behaved as leaves do, I think it would be a rather interesting situation indeed. Would the seeds of a money tree be coinage? Would there be different types of trees for each of the denominations, or would it simply be a case of seed and flower or leaf development?
Eg, does a money tree start off planted with a 1c coin (or 5c here in Australia, since we don’t go down at low as a cent), and as it matures it works it way up until its sprouting notes, which increase in denomination as the money-blooms mature, or do you need a whole separate plant to sprout the five dollar notes and the ten? Is the money it sprouts the leaves or the ‘flowers’, and if it comes in the form of the flowers, what are the leaves? Deposit slips? Cheque books?
I, for one, think that it is a thought entirely worthy of pondering. I think I might come up with a whole philosophy regarding it given enough time to ponder. Pondering is fun.
A friend of mine, Anicia Medici (fabulous owner of Sugar Mill), asked me recently as a favor to recolour one of my existing pieces to include black and silver, rather than the default colouration. I did so happily, but the suggestion further fueled me to create a full set of jewelry with that particular thought in mind. This is the result of that inspiration – something deliciously delicate and detailed, with little gemstone drops to add just the right touch of elegance to the set.
While the bigger set actually contains no black at all, the additional set (which was actually created first) definately fulfills the criteria. It adds just that little extra spice to something quite nice, don’t you think?
Also added… the Harvest set! Yes, I know I’m rolling a lot of new release info into the one post, but I’ve been really busy. The harvest set was actually created quite a while back, but I never got around to doing it up for sale – I finally got myself into gear and got it ready to go. Phew!
Ok, final image for tonight. Adding to my ever-delicious line of foodstuffs and other novelty items, this is, well, just exactly what it looks like. A seven scoop cone of ice-creamery goodness. Mmmmm, tasty!
Oh, please forgive the banner cycling by the way… I’m trying something new! I may be testing for a couple of days, so please forgive the icky designs til I work out something just right.
I was peeking through my sketch-book for a spare space on which to place pen to paper when I stumbled across some of the pictures I drew the other week – I was going through my initial ice-cream obsession. This was one of the pictures from that little cluster of sketches crowded together in the corner of one sheet. I swear that the picture wasn’t meant to look quite as suggestive as it may do to those of you with less than pristine minds. Tsk tsk. This is what one gets for playing with their food.
