Happy Twenny-Leven! Have a meme.

In 2011, bleaknimue resolves to...
Drink four glasses of vanilla every day.
Give up zombie baby buggery.
Find a better bogeymen.
Give up suspended animations.
Spend less time on pan.
Give some imaginary friends to charity.
Get your own New Year's Resolutions:


I am currently uploading new hunter pics! I will have a Massive Post of Arty Doom in a couple minutes. I figure it's Saturday and New Years Day, so I won't be spamming too bad? Ack.

Here is a taste!

Bullet List Posting

- [personal profile] ciceqi is a fabulous cook. Yus! omnomnomnomnom. *squishes*

- Tryptophan is my friend. I took a nap and then a shower and then another nap. I'm sure the entire internet is interested in my sleep patterns. (or lack thereof as it may be.) >_>;

- I need to hang out with people who are not me more often. It's fun and I might be losing my social skills. *sigh*

- I think I'm going to wrap my dreads in green and pink wool. Not only will it be warm for the winter, it'll be tentacle-icious!

- I made Apple Brown Betty and now have an earworm. You're welcome.

- The only thing I'm buying today is a latte for internet acquisition purposes.

- I'm working on my 40th goblin today. o_O; that's a lotta goblins.

- I turned the heat off in every room but my bedroom and turned that up to 75 with the door closed. It is lovely and I need to get a little humidifier to make it lovelier. I should just go live in a volcano.

- Next Oct 23, I'll have had my journal for 10 years. O_O;;

- I need to go mail off a hunter and a goblin. Hopefully everying else will be shopping and the line at the PO won't be too long. ^_^)b

- and stuff...

ETA: OOH OOH!! And check out the Turkey Day art at Urban Fey!! Ahahahaha!!! It's awesome. I heart you [personal profile] rhea and [ profile] coyote_eyes.

I got a bee in my bonnet.

So this morning, I woke up before my alarm went off, laid there and listened to traffic until it did and then got up to...


Before 8 in the morning, y'all. And then I did paperwork (O_____O) and had tea and a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie for breakfast and now I am doing actual correspondence.

Who am I and where's the pod???? seriously.

Also? Here's a ear treat for y'all. One of my favorite folkie/Americana musicians is Abigail Washburn (no relation) and here is her song "Song of the Travelling Daughter" which is awesome old-time Appalachian mountain music in Chinese. Loooooooove!

Where I am on the Interwebs.

Not surprisingly, I am in many places!! But I don't update any of them regularly. I try, though? D:
(I try not to spam to much and I work a lot and well, yus. *sigh*)

Feel free to add me on any of them! I'm mostly friendly and don't bite much. ^__^

Aaaand I was gonna cut this and forgot. Argh my mushy brain peas. )

That's enough procrastination for the time being. :P Back to the Goblings! (Tiny goblins! EeeeEEE!! ^__^)

ETA: THis journal is friends only except for finished art posts. :) Please comment if you want to be added. <3

I don't bite, I'm just tired. :)

I have Show!brain. *sigh* I've got Baba Yaga's Hut on display at Oddcon this weekend. it was at Minicon weekend before last and will be shown again at Wiscon Memorial Day weekend. O_O;;

It's amazing how exhausting so many shows so close together can be. bleah. But! I've sold a few dolls, so that is awesome! and I get to hang out with awesome people too! so that is doubly awesome. ^___^ (I think after I take the show down tomorrow, I might sleep til tuesday. that sounds about right. :P Of course *last* Tuesday, I completely forgot to sleep altogether, so... maybe I don't want to mess with Tuesdays. D:)

In other news, Here's a picture of Pan. ^____^ (sexy Pan is sexy! :P)

Four wants to give you a quarter!
Four wants to give you a quarter!

Check them out! Bleaknimue.Etsy.Com

(and give them a good home so I won't be so worried about the little guys and what they're getting up to! :P)

eta: Heh. I've got 13 items for sale! :P that's good luck, right? right?

Feb. 14th, 2009

Much better!

So after a couple days of the flu, I'm not as behind as I thought I would be! yey. ^_^

I had 230 kanji to review and I got 70% of them correct and the 30% that I missed were either new ones I'd learned right before I got sick, or those pesky ones that I keep missing. The good thing is though, that I've got the gist of the the pesky ones, I'm just missing the stroke order of an element or so. yey!

I'm going through the huge pile of studio stuff left to sort and bring over to the new place and am discovering where all my pens have gone for the past 2 years. D: D: I am now the proud owner of about 45 micron pens, 23 La Plume brush pens, 3 water color sets, 10 pairs of pliers, 2 wood carving sets, and 4 jewelry boxes complete with jewelry I'd thought I'd lost. ._> wtf?

And? I almost bought a set of microns yesterday because the ones I've been using have the writing all rubbed off of them and are getting light because they're almost out of ink. So it's not that I don't use them! :P I just lose them and then buy another one.

Today the plan is to take pictures of the studio as it is now so I have before (aka clean) and after (aka "lived in") pics for the studio page on my website. :P

And finish going through the *mountain* of laundry and art supplies in my room here at home. And more kanji. but not til after lunch, cause that's fun and I'll not get anything else done if I do that first. :P

damn I've got a lot of art supplies. and clothes. Maybe I should put some up on ebay....

Feb. 11th, 2009

Updating IJ! omg!

Hey y'all! ^___^ I know I haven't been around for a loooooong time. I've been working and setting up my new 11,000 square foot studio. :D (omg it's HUGE!) Hopefully I'll have some stop motion vids to post soon! ^___^

in the meantime, Eric bought a bike for Nigel for christmas. and since it was backordered at the time, it came in the mail this past weekend. SO COOOL!! :D :D :D

here's a Crowthing on a motercycle. :D )

In other news, I've got the flu. So I'm being forced to sit (or lie as the case may be) for a while and slow down while I get over this thing. meh. At least I've got a lot of movies piled up, Ookami to finish (although it makes me a little nauseated when I'm tired. stupid inner ear.) and japanese homework to catch up on. :P

So yus. I think I'm gonna not look at this as Oh God I'm DYING. but as Nature forcing me to take a vacation. on my couch. with a box of tissues and a bottle of water. :P

Jan. 3rd, 2009

HA!! I think this is the horrorscope of my life, not just tomorrow. :P :P

Your horoscope for January 4, 2009
Action is the key word of the day for you, Jane, so put on some comfortable shoes this morning and have a good time. Infuse a bit of non sequitur playfulness in your dealings with others and find ways in which you can escape reality for a little while. Take the original scenario and add a twist of the bizarre. Opinions will be especially strong today and conflict may arise, but realize that a breath of playfulness and lightheartedness will remedy any situation.

I had a lovely time at the birthday of the lovely miss [info]lipf3tish tonight and I feel much better now. ^___^ (I still want to climb the walls, but I no longer want to claw people's eyes out when I do so. :P)


Anywhoo, I'm up too late so I'm going to bed.

Happy New Year!

So yus. I'm making up for all the Resolutions I didn't do the past decade by starting [info]mission101.

I've been planning on starting a Day Zero list for a while now and figured that this would be a fabulous time to do so. ^_^ I've been working on figuring out what I want to do with my life for the past 8 years and now that things are falling into place, it seems like a good time to add a bit of structure to the process.

Structure is my friend, yus. ^_^

So here is my 101 things in 11 catagories. Some I won't start til next year and some I've already started but they've been languishing in a box or a journal somewhere and I really just need to blow the dust off and finish them. Some I've been talking about for years now and I just need to buckle down and *do* them. And as it is the nature of life and lists, I know that this one will grow and change over the next couple years, but that's what makes things fun! ^___^

a list of list-ie things )

Now I go pick Mim up from the airport and maybe eat something. yus.

Two Videos...

Sarah Brightman. singing Disco!Filk. with LOTOFGLITTEROMG. O___o;

ow my brain. Via [info]iamthepoison!! sankuuuuuuu! *BRAAAAAINS*

And!! This Is So Cool! ^____^ Doll artists should always play with their dolls. *decrees it*

Enchanted Doll from Chad Isley on Vimeo.

Also? These dolls make me feel simultaneously intimidated and inspired. I especially love this one. omg the technique and detail and skill level are so so so gorgeous. And! She's got a WIP page! ^__^ I love watching creative processes. It's fascinating and fabulous! (and most of the time I learn a lot!)

This is absolutely Reason #1 I would really like to take classes and have some sort of formal art education. :/ (yes, I know it's what you make of it and all successful artists make it their own. But there really is something to say about a formal education and sometimes I feel things would be a little less hard if I had one. *meh*)

^__^ ♥! ♥!

I'm feeling pic spammy today...

So, here's a pic of me in the snow.

Last week I was STUPID and walked to work during the big snow storm. 6 miles in knee deep drifts. It took me almost 2.5 hours and I couldn't move my hips without wincing for two days afterwards. (on the bright side, it was *only* two days! well, I was sore for a week, but still! RAWR!) I took pictures along the way. ^__^ Click for bigger versions...

Wisconsin in Winter

And there were *three* snowplows on Willie St! The first one plowed the left side, the second the middle and the third the right side. It was quite impressive! Also I saw two cross country skiers. :P I was envious.

I've updated mah DA. yus.

Seven Talks to Fieu
by =bleaknimue on deviantART

YAY! Seven is chatting with Auntie Fieu. awwww...

Leeloo and Aleister are not impressed.

Leeloo interrupts the photoshoot! AAAH!!! Giant tiny Kitty butt!! She totally makes Six look his size, though. LOL!

Aaaaaand... There was a Hunter Meeting this afternoon! D: D: D:

Something simply *must* be done about those Crowlings!! maybe we should discuss this in pig-latin...

Dec. 23rd, 2008

Happy Day #8!

Happy Thing #8: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!! It's a highly amusing meme. :P

On the twelfth day of Christmas, bleaknimue sent to me...
Twelve goblins drumming
Eleven archetypes piping
Ten bones a-leaping
Nine sigils dancing
Eight woodcuts a-milking
Seven enigmas a-world-building
Six snakes a-traveling
Five blo-o-o-ood artists
Four trembling shambles
Three imaginary friends
Two rusty spoons
...and a barefeet in a taxidermy.
Get your own Twelve Days:

And?? CROWTHINGS WITH SCARVES! *________* they're SO CUTE!! *snuggles Four and Five*

Crowlings are Up To No Good. yus. so badass! :P

And I've been working! Here's proof! ^________^ 5 million armatures! D: D: D:

and, last, but certainly not least, Proto!Pan!! ^__^ (he's getting there. ^________^ whoot!

And Bone Child (and laptop too, as I just realized. :P) is in there for reference. She's the size of a regular Hunter. Proto!Pan is about 2.5 imps tall, or about 1.25 hunters. ^__^


Also, I went to my work party tonight and brought [info]suibhne_geilt as my guest. I had more fun than I expected to. ^_^ and it still wasn't snowing when we left at 9. (It's just barely flurries now and it's almost midnight. I'm really hoping for a good drive in to work in the morning, but I'm not counting on it. HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL, MAN!)

As usual the food made me sick, but it was nummy! and I had my first actual cup of coffee in almost a year. D: I was really hoping it was the decaf, but I have a feeling that it wasn't. *sigh* especially since I'm still awake and editing pictures. :P

Also we got t-shirts for our holiday gift thing. they're really soft, though. and mine has a tape gun on it. LOL.

Anywhoo, I'm working on a certain little red imp with wings and a black fuzzy body right now. ^_^ And then I need to get me to bed, 'cause yeah. Driving's gonna suck in the morning. bleah.

Happy Day #7!

Happy Thing #7 - Mel gave me a ride home last night and picked me up this morning so I didn't have to drive in the ick! YAY! She rocks like a rockin' thing. ^___^


This is a short post, 'cause I need to get working, but I have tea and a granola bar and all my babies around me here at my desk and lots of layers on so I'm warm. ^____^ (except for Little Seven who is hanging with Nigel today. ^_^)

OOh! and I'm hopefully gonna go see Benjamin Button tonight. ^_^ yay!
