I may as well post something.

Yeah, I'm still sticking with LJ. More people read it. *shrug*

Anyway, my yearlong traineeship has come to an end and I'm currently embarking on my AMA Qualification. I have a new blog for this and the curatorialtrainee one will no longer be updated:

Shock, horror! An art post!

Because I haven't done one in EONS. Mainly because I've been busy with work and the book, but since the book isn't happening now, I can show you guys this, which was one of my personal faves (an Atlas moth). You can click on it for a bigger version:





Also some Trekkie fan art which is the first thing I've drawn just for myself in about a year )

From LJ

[profile] luckyleaf1977: What is up with this picture? It's like Janeway and Q had a BFF sleepover.

[personal profile] ginasketch: Maybe they did. I bet they spent all night having "girl talk" about Picard and Chakotay.



I also found this on tumblr. It's the BEST THING EVAR:

a rare dreamwidth post

Christ. I'm sick of LJ being down because of DDOS attacks. Considering starting to cross post everything I write there over here instead of just using DW as a back up archive.

Too many people read LJ for me to leave it completely. But this is just happening way too much. Plus there was that phishing attack too.

Yay!

So remember a while back the curator of Entomology said he wanted me to write and illustrate an article for his Entomology blog?

Well It's up! And it includes a painting I did of a weevil.

Drawing parrots at the Grant Museum of Zoology
















Also the Okapi drawing went to a good home yesterday





Thanks to everyone who came out last night! I had fun.
Tonight, dinner at The English Pig with Ozzy! I don't normally get to eat in restaurants of this caliber so I'm really looking forward to it!

Grant Museum

It feels good to be back in London.

Today I went to the Grant Museum of Zoology and chatted a bit with my mentor. I also met this lovely lady called Janet, who is the scientific illustrator at the Grant. She was very nice. I might go and draw there this week as they welcome artists.

I took some photos but sadly do not have my USB cable with me for the camera. Will have to upload them when I get back.

Looking forward to drinks later with [livejournal.com profile] nadriel. Feeling very happy. ^^

[livejournal.com profile] kankurette got me a Smarties Chicken!

Now the only thing is, if I eat it head first will it flail around my room for 30 seconds?

Beetle

One of my stipple drawings for the Soil Biodiversity Team at the NHM is finished. This is a dung beetle (Geotropes sp.)
