2007 pencil drawing. More drawings to come; I have a new and MUCH better scanner now. I also finished the Odin pyrography, this one I decided to color using watercolor paint. Not really a good idea, but it did'nt turn out too awful, but I probably will not be using the watercolors again unless it is something small... I'm in the process of varnishing it (out of varnish). Once that's done I will take a photo and post it.

Stop the Bush/Cheney Sneak Attack on Wolves

Officials in the Bush/Cheney Administration are moving forward with plans to allow wolves to be killed in Idaho and Wyoming even before the animals are removed from the list of federally protected endangered and threatened species.

Help us stop them. Sign the petition today to send a message to U.S. Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and urge him to abandon efforts to let states start killing wolves and to delay de-listing of gray wolves in the Northern Rockies.

Stop Japan's whaling program

From AUSXIP-Update :

Lucy signs Anti-Whaling Petition...

The Australian Government (after the election of the Rudd Labor
Government and 11 years of gross inaction by our version of the
Republicans) is going after the Japanese boats which are hunting whales
for "scientific purposes" (a load of horse poop).

Japan's whaling fleet set sail last month with plans to catch more than
1000 whales, including 50 humpbacks!

Meanwhile across the ditch to kiwi land, the following appeared in
today's The Dominion ( :

PM backs anti-whaling campaign
The prime minister has swung behind a campaign to stop Japanese whaling,
as Australia prepares to send planes and an armed ship to monitor the
whaling fleet near Antarctica.

The Dominion Post began a campaign this week to halt the slaughter by
Japan of up to 50 threatened humpback whales, 50 endangered fin whales
and 935 minke whales.

By last night, more than 2100 people had signed an online petition
urging the Japanese Government "to abandon its abhorrent whaling
programme", including actress Lucy Lawless, singer Hollie Smith and
radio and television presenter Marcus Lush.

I love this site, though the writing is so painful to read sometimes. I do have to admit I dress my dog Lucy in a coat and boots, but she is mostly hairless and needs to wear something outdoors or she'll freeze and hurt her paws walking on road salt now that winter's here. Howl at ya later!!

Wolf Frame

This is a scan of the frame so you can see more of the detail.

Digital camera photo of the frame.

I'm not sure what kind of wood this is. I did'nt really have an easy time burning it, so I don't think I'll be using it again. This was something I picked up at Michaels earlier this year. I'm selling this for $5.00 ($5.00 for shipping). There is a little hanger on the back to put on a wall. Money orders or Paypal. Please e-mail me at

Update: This has been sold.

Save Vottovaara.

The old Pagan cult place in the Republic of Karelia (part of the Russian Federation) is in danger. Vottovaara was only "discovered" in 1978, and it consists of about 1500 sacred seita rocks, peculiar kind of rocks that were used as sacred sacrifical sites by the pre-Christian Finnic peoples. It is widely assumed that Vottovaara mountain was a sacred place for the Pagans living in the area. Vottovaara is sometimes even titled as the "Northern Stonehenge". Unfortunately, the government of the Republic of Karelia is now planning to start mining operations at the mountain, very close to seita rock formations. The use of explosives at the mine puts these sacred formations in real danger.
