Wednesday 3rd July 2009

Hmm... Trying to break out of my comfort zone and learn to draw new things on demand, I'm beginning to think I've bitten off more than I can chew with a short story for FutureQuake Press about a time-traveller trying to destroy organised religion, as by page three I have to draw Abu ‘Ali Mansur Tāriqu l-Ḥākim, who's an 11th century caliph and imam, and it only occurred to me while thumbnailing the pages and seeking out reference that some things - such as devout muslim leaders who discourage the creation of images of their likeness - might be hard to find visual reference for, as might the Church of the Holy Sepulchre before it was destroyed in the 11th century. Ah well - this must be where that 'imagination' thing I've read about comes into play, but I don't think it'll catch on.

Watching: the season of ATHF I didn't realise had just been shown - hurrah!
Reading: Power Pack Classic, Captain America
Playing: Sudoku, Fallout 3
