Look what came in the mail yesterday!!

This was the drawing my youngest son sent to Ian McKellen. It has come back, signed by Sir Ian AND he has drawn himself as Gandalf on it!!!

Youngest son is thrilled. (and so are his mum and dad!)

This post is the result of an idea I got from [livejournal.com profile] glockgal a little while back. (*yoda voice* so blame her you must, yes, hmm)  But that ‘oh so anal’ part of me just had to have a go.

So here you’ll see a whole lot of my drawings from age 12 up.  I did try to find some earlier pics but, sadly, couldn’t find any.  My kids come across them from time to time in the backs of books and things like that, and have a go at me for drawing in a book – something they would be dragged across the coals for.  ;~P  But it seems I hadn’t put any away for ‘safekeeping’ as such. I was obsessed with horses as a child, so that’s pretty much all I drew.  Although I’m sure I did some of Kimba the White Lion and Prince Planet, which were my favourite cartoons.

picture heavy post )

I have a new 20yr theory -
1954- Lord of the Rings was first published and gathered a worldwide following. 
1977 - Star Wars, and we know what happened there. 
1997 - Harry Potter.  Same core mythology. Same characters. Fulfills the same need as the last two and becomes insanely popular. 
Roughly 20yrs between each. Now, what do you suppose we can look forward to come c2017??

Being bad today.  Mood is highly unstable which I blame wholeheartedly on the fact that my period has come a week early.  *sigh*  Still, on the positive side - that means I get to be fertile while the moon is waxing, which ALWAYS = wonderful creativity for me.  Muse is probably creeping up behind me as I type.  *glances over shoulder*

Wish I could write.  I haven't written anything in MONTHS.  I ache to write.  But every time I open a file to do it I just sit gazing at the blank screen.  :~(   Want to draw too.  Must finish folio first though...

I'm copying the audio book of GoF at the moment.  (told you I was being bad) But it's so much fun to listen to while doing the dishes and shit like that!  Makes the time fly and I hardly notice the work.

GAH! The kids'll be home in half an hour and what have I got to show for today???  Nothing!  (apart from a couple of loads of clothes on the line and the dishes washed) Hate that. 

Couldn't believe it when LOTR won best pic at the Academy Awards last night. (and so it should have!) First time ever a 'genre' film has won.  WOW, they'll be letting an SF or an action film win next and I'll think I've slid into an alternate universe or something! 

Bah!  Washing machine calleth....
