A copy of the bird icon (is it a crow?) that was on the inside flap of the corn meal bag that I bought to make corn meal drop biscuits.
I like the shape of the "5" quite a bit.

"Hey, does peter like Polaroid Cameras?"
Yes, I do, and here is a drawing of a Polaroid One Step Land camera. I'm not sure when exactly this camera was manufactured but it used the SX-70 film so I would guess it dates back to the late 1970's or possibly the early 80's. I own one of these but it is buried somewhere so the was a drawing from memory. As you can see some of the details are incorrect.

A first for the daily drawings, a digital image. This is the sketch elevation of the IKEA shelving unit I'm planning on purchasing. I did a pencil sketch with the dimensions and posted it a few weeks ago. Here is the scale drawing produced in Adobe Illustrator. It looks like everything will fit as I had planned it and the total price of the parts needed for this set-up is only $163.00 what a deal!

Here is my Polaroid plastic Land Camera first outlined in finepoint Sharpie and then filled in with Caran d'Ache watercolor pencils. I enjoyed working with watercolor again but found the brush that came with the set to be somewhat difficult to work with. Also the Moleskin book I was using does not seem to accept water very quickly so it take too long for the color to dry. I would like to experiment with some proper water color paper sometime soon.

Here we have an elevation sketch of the location where I would like to install a new IKEA shelf sometime in the near future. I'm going to do a quick scale layout in Illustrator to make sure that everything fits the way I want before I invest the time and $$$ to pick up the "IVAR" storage unit from my friendly Swedish furniture store.

Happy New Year! The end of 2006 was a bit bumpy in terms of the regularity of my postings but I'm hopeful that I can settle into a better rhythm for 2007. To start off this new year I've gone back to the topic of my first post, bicycle bits'n'pieces. This is a coaster brake hub that I found in the trash over the weekend. I've removed the old, crappy steel rim and spokes and taken it apart and cleaned it out. Soon I will order a new rim and spokes so that it can fit on my Raleigh city bike.
