A few months ago I mentioned that my Wacom stylus had gone bung [I think someone dropped it]. Well, anyway, today I can rejoice. My replacement Wacom stylus arrived in the post today. Finally! I have felt like a finger had been chopped off without the use of a stylus for my digital artwork. Honestly once you've learnt to work with a digital stylus for Photoshop and Illustrator there is no way you can go back to using a mouse. Let the intrepid digital art insanity recommence.
The times change and nothing can ever be the same forever.
Near where I live structures have been knocked down to make way for apartment living and more modern work facilities.
Some walls abutting the newly knocked in space have graffiti and commercial art which in no time at all will not be seen once the new walls go up. I photographed these pieces of wall art before they disappeared forever.
It's a good thing my family went to the zoo yesterday, because the weather has been positively bipolar today. The Melbourne Zoo is a massive place and we couldn't see every animal exhibit. We did see the elephant, meerkats, various monkey species, a red panda, butterflies, spiders [ick!], pelicans, ducks, tigers and a peacock. We ate lunch at the zoo bistro - I ate my first ever BLT [and am completely hooked on this sandwich. This was followed by scones with cream and jam [mmmm]. We finished with a walk through a Japanese inspired garden and a look around the souvenir shop. Gwen came out with a large plush elephant, which she bopped her poor Dad over the head with when he carried her on his shoulders.
