My Mars Photo Would Look Something Like...




Here's my photo of Mars because, to be truthful, that last one by Nasa was a bit boring. Maybe they should have equipped their Curiosity machine with Instagram?

Early September Spiders


Helen called me into the bathroom late last night to have a look at our latest visitor. I used to have no problem picking up big hairy spiders but the last few years I dread having to handle their spindly bodies to evict them into the cool night air outside. Like feathers stroking the inside of a wrist their hairy scrabbling legs trigger nerves in my neck, evicting the spider becomes a complete body experience, one I don't really need before bed.

List of Suspects


I was struggling with computer colouring today and I needed to do something freehand.  Drawn with a Uniball Eye Micro and a box of cheap Winsor & Newton waterclours.
