Linkity zooms by

Once again, on-call stuff ate into my linkity making time. So! Here’s what I got.

Reading Update
Freehand: Sketching Tips and Tricks Drawn from Art by Helen Birch. Good overview of a wide array of artistic tidbits, such as “Suggesting Time”, “Negative Space”, “Damp Ground”, “Aerial Gaze”, “Complementary Colors”, etc. Feels more scattershot than I was expecting for some reason.

Reading Update
Sid vs Ovi: Natural Born Rivals by Andrew Podnieks. So-so comparison of Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin from their rookie seasons in 2005-2006 through June 2011, focusing on their games against each other. The book was definitely biased toward Crosby and painted a pretty unflattering picture of Ovechkin. I mean, I prefer Sid to Ovi myself, but… Pretty sure I told the book, “You aren’t even trying” more than once.

Comingled linkity of great messiness

Getting paged for work really ate up my evening and my linkity making time, so I’m cranky and going to see how much linkity I can manage in 15-30 minutes. Ready. Set. Go.

The Creative License: Giving Yourself Permission to Be the Artist You Truly Are by Danny Gregory. While I didn’t always agree with the author, it was a good, thought-provoking book on using drawing to bring more creativity to all aspects of your life. It definitely got me thinking and writing about some deeper things.
Creative Pilgrimage: An Exploration of Artful Gatherings and Discovery of Innovative Art Techniques by Jenny Doh. Ok but very repetitive overview of various instructors from mixed media art retreats. Not something I’ll bother rereading or referring to again.


I recently bought a magnet for my refrigerator and it perfectly sums up how Chaos greets visitors…

The Best of Down Goes Brown: Greatest Hits and Brand New Classics-to-Be from Hockey’s Most Hilarious Blog by Sean McIndoe. Good collection of humorous hockey writing – unfortunately, it really doesn’t stand the test of time (six years) that well.
The Jargoon Pard by Andre Norton. I loved this book as a preteen and it stood up pretty well to the reread. I did get annoyed with the sort of formal, tangly language at times – obviously preteen me was a more forgiving reader. 🙂 (Confession: I was too lazy to go dig this out of my under-bed storage, so I just checked the ebook out of the library from the comfort of my purple chaise instead…)
