Mixed Tape Art Without the Tape
I used to draw abstract patterns on mix tapes which looked interesting, but made it difficult to read the song titles and a bit difficult to enjoy the patterns. So I've decided to start doing small abstract drawings around the same scale.
I've also posted tiled versions of these two images and some new fractal images in my DeviantArt gallery.
In Search of a "Green" X-mas Tree
When I moved to Canada I didn't bring my old, short, sparse artificial tree with me…and I never bought a replacement - until now. Behold my first Christmas tree in over 15 yrs.
I bought it after much research and considering environmentally friendly options. Here's the short list of what I learned about trying to find a "green" tree for Christmas:
Ikea offers nice, cheap PE trees if you're looking for an artificial tree that isn't made from PVC. Just don't put lights on it, because power cords are coated with PVC.
Oh, and aluminum trees are really pretty, if you have a bit more money and want to go with a used/antique option.
