[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:

Today, just before work I walked to Green and Stone, the artshop on King's Road.

I don't usually shop there as it can be expensive, but I decided to treat myself as I hadn't done so in quite a while.

I got myself some spiffy new sketchbooks which I plan to do more Natural History drawings in:






And then I noticed the magazine rack in the shop, and how Illustration had an article about zoological illustration on the cover, so that was snapped up too.





Then I walked through Chelsea back to work. It's a lovely day.

Yesterday, I had my "Big Welcome" at the museum. The best part of the tour was by far seeing the spirit room and getting to touch ugly, huge fish and sharks. Oliver Crimmen, the scientist who showed us around was lovely and really enthusiastic. One of the fish he showed us was Arapaima, one of the world's largest freshwater fish. He told us that their numbers are dropping because people like to harpoon them:

"When I was showing David Attenborough around last week I thought 'I better not tell him about that since he's done a documentary on them.' Then he saw the fish and said 'Ah, Arapaima! I've harpooned one of those."
