By in dogs, sketches


Have this flickr uploader gadget in the blog. Haven’t gotten it to work yet. This is my first real post on the new system on the blog. Pretty spiffy. Plus I feel proud of myself for following the 18 or so steps to upgrade, with backups and passwords and all.

Anyhow (feeling wordy, a switch from twitter!), this is a ballpoint pen sketch done on the balcony this morning. It points me towards drawing or painting a complicated fan’s den, filled with gadgets and tchotchkes.

Inspired by the movie Paprika, which was above-average anime. Intelligent speculation about what would happen if someone invented a machine that let others share or record your dreams. Had a lot of the usual tropes of giant things smashing stuff up, colossal toys, tentacles, and kinky imagery, plus that crowding of things I was mentioning, but also a plot I could follow, and almost human characters.
