I'm not quite sure either but its the beady eyes from the barber shop, and possibly the ghost of our blessed virgin. Bravo everyone, the drawings are wonderful, and they made my day, and they add meaning to my life, and thank you.
A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives you roses.

These scrimshaws just keep getting better and better! And I gotta give a thumbs-up to you guys doing it by paint, this was my first attempt and drawing by mouse is alot harder than I thought!! Wonderful job everyone!!

I don't see how any of ya'll do it by mouse. I find it impossible.

As Douglas Adams said, "I love deadlines. I love the wooshing sound they make as they fly by."
Sorry. I'm scum. And really bad at drawing.
You guys did great! I think I may print all these out and make my copy of the book into a "graphic novel."

Don't worry about it Trillian. If you've already drawn one up send it in and I'll ad it. I got your email. Excellent job. I love it.

these were great. i really want to walk down plantayne ave. but how did you get a mouse to draw? with a tiny little pencil?

As someone who hasn't read a page of this book, I must say that your scrimshaws are bringing it to life for me!
RDD - if you want me to attempt a 'shaw then give me a quote or scene and I'll attempt to draw that.
Thank you all, once again, for giving me a glimpse into the book through your imaginations.

For the next chapters I will send you something to draw. Great idea.

I can see labs' Barber-y shop in the movie version, Keith.

Keith- I'm not sure what you're referring to specifically but since I found this blog and your book I feel the void is a bit more satisfied. I have that sort of pirate spirit too and can't help but try and get to the middle of it all. Maybe you're picking up on that? Can you say more...

Thank you, WendyJo. Personally, when I look at it now the bamboo gives me a headache...kind of like one of those optical illusions where you stare at the black spot and the outer rings start to spin? Anyway, I am astounded that you did your 'shaw using Paint! My first attempt was done using the mouse, and I found it to be frustrating and extremely difficult. Now I'm drawing and taking a digital photo...much easier to control. lol Congratulations on a great drawing.

Thanks RDD... I can't guarantee that they'll be great drawings like you've had, but I will do my bestest attempts.

I set up an email account to use for this site ... so I thought I'd better give you the address to send me my scrimshaw suggestions.
If anyone else has suggestions for me then they are also quite welcome to email me directly.

just wanted to let you all know that i will be absent from here for about 2 weeks. i'm moving *groan*, starting tomorrow, and the great powers that be can't seem to find a way to flip that switch to turn on my dsl til the 13th. i'm gonna try to get to a family members puter during that time, so i can feed my addiction. i will miss all of you, and expect to see some great things on this site when i come back. i'm just sorry i won't get to be a part of it.
rdd, i don't think i tell you often enough, just how great you are, doing what you do at home AND taking care of all of us. i'm going to miss you bunches!
not disconnecting til monday sometime, so i'll be checking back here frequently til then.
to each and every one of you

I think that Flarq fella has the job in the bag, (and I ain't just saying that because he wields a mean harpoon).

Feenxc, you have my complete sympathy for your move! I hate moving house - in fact my husband and I joke that we'll never split up because neither of us could be bothered to move out!
We'll miss you lots too... hope your dsl switch flipping goes smoothly!
See you soon, and kisshugs to you too!

How disappointing. You will be sorely missed, feenxc. I hope you can steal time to come on every other day or so. Until the 13th, I bid you good tidings and a smooth transition. Remember, if you don't use it, pitch it. It makes moving a whole lot easier. (>'

I thought I sensed a sort of pirate spirit. What would you do if you were at a pirate bar and a regular offered to buy you a tankard of beer or a gill of grog (your choice) with a spoonful of gunpowder or without (again, your choice)?
Monday, 2 May 2005 - 3:13 AM CDTName: Bastardess
This is so hard to answer because I want to say a thousand things. First though, do you know of any real female pirates??? My deep dark soul would swig a gill of grog with two spoons of gunpowder, chase it with a tankard of beer, laugh and make jokes all night long, and for that brief moment live out my fantasy of being one of the boys. My deep and not so dark soul would probably do the same thing. Only the rum would be tequila, I would be in cowgirl boots, a joint might be involved, and the fantasy wouldn't matter anymore because the pirate would be everything I ever wished for in a man, and we would sail our two ships off side by side through many many adventures. Now you, only the regular is the only piratess ever. And she's hot...
