This is the craziness that burst forth from my noggin today during church.

As with many things I draw, I have no clue where this came from. Just scribbling at a Boy Scout meeting.
I’ve been desperately in need of a better computer for all my digital artwork, and I finally got around to building one. A lot of parts purchased from a coworkers old gaming machine, some new parts from me, and a little work installing and configuring. It also now supports multiple monitors, so I added a little mutant arm to the stand behind my desk and put a small old monitor to use for reference, tool placement, or media consumption while working.
What I had: started as an old Windows XP Media Center Edition someone was throwing out.
Single 32 Bit 2.8 GHz Processor
2 Gb Max RAM
Onboard Intel VGA Graphics
What I’ve now built:
Quad-Core 2.3 GHz (each) 64 Bit Processor
8 Gb Ram
Dual ATI Radeon RV670 HD graphics cards (up to four monitors)
Solid State HDD for xubuntu install
Still probably old by some standards but sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much faster.
Today we had a work day at our local Boy Scout hut so I worked on some chuck boxes with a couple of the boys. Still needs hinges and some other hardware, but they came out pretty good.
My oldest had also been perfecting his mini-figure scaled Lego ballistas. The little suckers shoot over ten feet!
I had a few spare moments at the computer tonight to scribble out something, so I thought I’d draw Ultron. I took the boys to see the new Avengers movie this last weekend, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Not sure about the twins not being mutant offspring of Magneto though?
I was recently asked to doodle up a tough looking badger for a memorial race for a fallen hero. I was very honored to help out that cause, and hope they can put this scrappy little guy to good use.
This is little guy I scribbled out during a meeting, I believe based off two random words some one said. Not sure how my mind works sometimes.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you over-worked, oft-not-appreciated heroes. This was a little doodle I did on the bottom of our church bulletin. My baby pterodactyls look very Woodstock-ish.
Today in church I decided to doodle Captain America, since the new Avenger’s movie came out this weekend. Can’t wait to see it.
This year for Mother’s Day, Anniversary, and Wife’s birthday ( all usually within a week or so) I finally got around to making her this Barn Wood Quilt she’d asked for some time back. It’s made with pallet and fencing wood, since I have no old barn to rip apart.
