Enter The Dragon

A little picture for the weekend of a sleeve Mehdi is working on, the bottom part was already there.
Mehdi only did the dragon.

The pictures don't do it justice though, it looks way better in real life.

Closer to God...Closer to Death

Inspired by a friend of mine who died from a drug overdose a few months ago... The tortured soul of an artist.. Trying to find his way in a world that don't understand...waiting on God to answer him back...

Dim Sum Thursday

90 Minutes in and I'm still staring at a blank screen. All I got is this stupid title that doesn't even make any sense what so ever. We didn't even have dim sum today.

Pretty stupid I can think of anything relevant to say, because this is a
picture that could have quite some text with it.
But, by the looks of it, I think this one will pass by here a couple of times more before it's finished. So I'll have a second chance sometime soon to make up for today.

All I have to say is, this is Kees, he's getting a full bodysuit by Mehdi, and he has quite a way to go still.
Thanks for tuning in, have a great night, and see you tomorrow.

Well, I'm typing this with one hand and a piece of paper on my nose and my head tilted back, barely seeing the screen as I type.

One of my nerdy characteristics wich I try to hide from the world is this! My spontaneous nosebleeds.
Actually it's kind of cool, but not really macho.

On top of not being sexy it's probably the least useful superpower I posses.

No pictures today, since I can't see anything I'm doing, hopefully the gods will have mercy on me tomorrow and let me blog again properly.

Atleast now I can say I'm a hardcore blogger! Fuck Yeah!

Wild Willem Jeger

A while ago I posted about my rare Wild Willem sighting. When I saw and documented a real Wild Willem in its natural habitat.

If you asked me then I would have said that's a chance of one in a million, and it would probably never happen again in my life time.

Boy, was I wrong! Turns out, the Willem actually got used to human presence and after a while he came back more often, looking for food, and once even tried mating with one of us, I will not state whom that person was for his sake of dignity.

All that I can say, is that the Willem, at one point became so obtrusive, that we had to take higher measures.
It was around that time, that one of our customers mentioned that he knew a guy that knew a guy that heard of a fellow whose third cousin in law is a Wild Willem jeger.

So we contacted this Wild Willem jeger guy and today he showed up, dressed in traditional Norwegian hunting attire, on the hunt for the Willem.

Yep... that's the guy! If you're asking yourself why he looks kind of like the Willem himself, that is no coincidence.
He actually disguises himself as a female Willem, to lure it into thinking it is going to mate. Only then the jeger can get close enough to slay the Willem, with his poisonous neuro-cytotoxic lobster arrow.

Prepare The Lynch

So, I guess I have to apologize for yesterday's post.
Yes, that's right, the one that never existed.

That was actually the first time, since I started this blog, that I forgot to post. I had that feeling of forgetting something but not knowing what it is in my head all day. It wasn't untill 2:30 last night that I realized that I've neglected my trusty readers.

This morning I had already received some hate-mail. Haters gonna hate.
But I'm headstrong, you won't get me down, you stupid hater peoples!

Here's a nice little skull Willem is working on.

Willem made a little all-seeing scarab.

The scarab beetle is a dung beetle, it lays its egg in a ball of dung that it buries in the ground. The egg hatches and the grub eats the dung and then pupates to emerge from the ground as a new adult beetle.

The ancient Egyptians saw how these beetles lived and emerged from dry ground and used this as a metaphor for the entombing and resurrection of their mummies. In this way the beetle became the Egyptian symbol for rebirth, the ability to be reborn.

The Egyptians also observed the beetle rolling its egg ball of along the ground, and the ball was identified with the sun and the beetle with the god Khepri who pushed the ball of the sun across the sky.

It Starts With An An

Some of you might remember this anchor, I posted the lines a while back.

Roger finished it today.
It half fresh half healed, so the contrast is kind of messed up.
