This is a custom vector image I created for an article that was published on Blogos.org. The cage was created in Illustrator. Coloring was done in Photoshop. I dabbled with this intermittently throughout one workday.

I am super excited to announce the publication of the latest Inkaholics novella, written by the Inkaholics 8 Writers Group, Pieces of T.I.M.(e). Here’s the back cover blurb:
Anthony Flynn is a machine of Artificial Intelligence existing in the world of humans. Life is a strange enough place, but after crossing paths with a fractious, bionic librarian and a self-exiled queen, he begins to learn that living is about more than complex computations.
Octopus Prime, a tenacious, tentacled crimelord, and his gang of aquatic ruffians, have a devious plan to destroy the creator of A.I. Stealing T.I.M., Anthony’s time machine, is merely the first step in extinguishing the mechanized race.
As time unfolds and events in history shift, Anthony finds himself grappling with his robotic side and his own programmed humanity. Which will win the fight? Or will he lose himself altogether?
This is a shot of the screen of my dear friend Puella, who is writing a fantastic novel called Here Lies Molly. She describes her story as the child of science fiction and philosophy–and that is!
This afternoon, I created two new robots for my Etsy store. I have been itching to do this, and I am quite happy with the results! Though these were made to be sold separately, they actually look pretty cute together. A note sits at the bottom of each description, suggesting that they be paired. Hope they end up going to the same home. ♥
Met with my dear friend Beth for lunch at Panera today. The steak and bleu cheese salad has got to be one of my singular faves on the menu.
Also, note the AMAZING new bag that Beth made for me. She hand-embroidered the design on the front to match my tattoo and added my name–Mangy. So fun!
Some nommy cream cheese wontons and chicken wings from my mom’s Thai restaurant.
Since we had the cardboard out for the shields earlier in the week, and the kids got snakes at the museum over the weekend, they decided to make a house for them.
This is the infrared image of a table that appeared on a monitor at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. That’s my infrared handprint. Science is AWESOME.
My daughter is enjoying my son’s new Legos as well. I love when they create stuff without the instruction booklets.
