influence map

Taken from the Influence Map template by fox-orian on deviantart.

Thoughts I take away from this meme: I like redheads. I like archy-texture. (ow) And I wonder if I'll ever really leave the manga influence behind, or if I even want to.

CLAMP really pulls your eye in, doesn't it?

I tried to assemble these with some cohesion and more or less in chronological order. It came out in two columns, beginning with Nausicaa on the top left and ending with my very recent fashion obsession on the bottom right. It's my life in pictures. I didn't expect it to mean so much.

Also, I'm afraid you'll all think less of the Vincent picture now you've seen Anja's work. :(

an addict's withdrawal

Oh God, I want more booooooooooooks!!!

Very recently read Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan. Dear Lord, I want this book. In hardcover. In fact, can someone make a whole book of all of Keith Thompson's art for this series? I would buy that too. And I want to read Philip Reeve's Larklight and Starcross again. I haven't even read Mothstorm.

NaNoWriMo is making me want to read instead of write. I am about 3K words behind, although I made a good start. Anyone out there doing it this year?

In slightly related news and to make this post less boring, SIR Terry Pratchett's newly-granted coat of arms from the Royal College of Arms. (You have to scroll down a bit on that page.)
The motto is "noli timere messorem" - "Don't Fear the Reaper". I love the UK, don't you?
