Currently listening to the Help Heal Haiti drive that the HP Alliance and other podcasters/comunities have organised, its amazing what they are doing. Did some sketching whilst listening.

There are some things that you can't fix with a Reparo charm

If you are a Harry Potter fan you will probably have seen these, but if you haven't, they are HIGHLY amusing.

Overheard in a bookshop in London

Girl: "Where is Russia?" "Is Russia in Europe?" "Or is it in Asia?"
Boy "I don't know where it is but it is BUFF. I know two people from Russia and they are soooo buff"

A person without imagination is like a teabag without hot water

Every year when it comes to making resolutions I always say "draw more". This never happens. Whenever I have spare time to sit down and be creative, it always seems to be after a long period of time and I spend all my time worrying about what to draw. The longer I think about what to draw, the less inspired I get and the more pressure I have to draw something that I feel should look "good" as I have spent so long thinking about it.

Obviously this leads to very little result. I took a leaf out of Eric Orchards book and drew a couple of things inspired by The Sartorialist, a blog I follow daily.

Neil Gaiman is too cool

Neil Gaiman says it better than I can.

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."

"I hope you will have a
wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind."

I'm know I will be reading at least one fine book this year as I got his book, American Gods, for Christmas. Anyway, excellent sentiments from him, I wouldn't be able to say it any better so I will leave it at that.
