Its warm in the day but I start complaining in the evening when it begins to get cooler and my fingers become ice-cold. Dunno why but my fingers and hands are always cold, Why?!
Anyway, started noticing the birds lately and realised how much I missed looking at those tiny sparrows, I wish there were more. They barely visit the garden anymore. At one time a couple of sparrows built a nest and laid some eggs in an old teapot we left discarded in the garden hanging on the fence...I've always wanted to look in there, I know the sparrows have long gone but it feels wrong some how, I don't know why blah.

Nooooo, not talking about Mephedrone, I'm on about cats. Having once owned a cat, I've been left with a cat shaped dent in my brain which I need to fill every so often, so I do this by drawing them.
I once read a poem, I think in high school that I never really forgot about. There was a particular line I feel that captured the 'essence of cat':
"Cats, no less liquid than their shadows
Offer no angles to the wind."
Okay then two lines.

I totally gave up on this one, lost my patience and rushed it in the end. It's been a while since I've done some Black 'n White stuff, so in hindsight I think it worked out okay. The problem I find when doing this sort of thing is I can end up putting in too much detail - transforming it into a grey mess, so I guess the rushed ending had its merit.
Its an illustration of Eowyn and her efforts to slay the Fell Beast (in the Lord of The Rings), just before she destroys the Witch King, a foe that:
'...no man can kill...'
A wonderful twist on the part of Tolkien.

This was a doodle I doodled, it sort of reminded me of the line:
'...Give me all the Peace and Joy in your mind!...'
from the song Bliss by Muse - a wonderful psychedelic sounding song, one of my favourites.
Added some flora to the background to give it some depth
