Last night the family and I enjoyed the Austin Civic Orchestra. The concert was titled Out of this World!, and featured Gustav Holst’s “The Planets“:
- Mars, the Bringer of War
- Venus, the Bringer of Peace
- Mercury, the Winged Messenger
- Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
- Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
- Uranus, the Magician
- Neptune, the Mystic
Our two boys (9 yrs and 10 yrs) loved it!
I asked my eldest if it was like he imagined; his reply was no, he assumed it would be in a school cafeteria. Needless to say, he was impressed at the scene.
Found a awesome map of Middle Earth awhile back online, the map is printed on fabric and look amazing!
The map is now framed, and hangs on our mantle along with Ichigo Kurosaki’s Zanpakutō.
Over the weekend I did something I haven’t done in a long time, draw.
One of the drawings I ended up liking was a cartoon skeleton, now named Skelly.
Below you can see a image of the original hand drawn art.
And lastly we have it imported in Illustrator and traced,
I rather like how he ended up.
