Still on the ArtRage rush...

Woohoo! I haven't felt like this with drawing since primary school! I don't want to sound like a cheesy advert but I can't help it--ArtRage made me fall in love with drawing all over again! *heart heart*

I so want a Wacom tablet now. Drawing with a mouse (and a crappy one, at that) is going to give me RSI if I keep up this pace!


  1. You know, I installed Art Rage like maybe one year plus ago and have never toyed with with much. So many things took over and I just forgot. Must go fiddle with the thingy...

    You have such great mouse control to be able to draw the pic of the Beetle. I have the darnedest time trying to make the mouse do what I want!

  2. It helps to clean the mouse bottom, and the wheel, if it's one of those ancient ball mice. Also, a smooth surface.

    I wish I had known about ArtRage a year ago! Things would've been so much different.

Lesson: Commemorative Covers are Lame.

Well, I got the first day cover that commemorates the 35th anniversary of the establishment diplomatic relations between China and Malaysia that I mentioned a couple of posts ago. Except that it's not a first day cover, it's a commemorative cover, which is a slightly different beast. I guess I should read the news article properly next time! The difference between the two is that first day covers are specially-designed envelopes stuck on with specially-designed stamps, and marked with a specially-designed postmark. A commemorative cover is a specially-designed envelope... and that's it. All in all, it's an unremarkable affair, especially if you're used to well-designed first day covers (not that Malaysian first day covers are well-designed... but I digress). Oh sure, a commemorative cover has a stamp printed right on to it but that's just like an overglorified aerogramme. Lame. On the whole, what a disappointment. I haven't been collecting first day cover

HOWTO: Get Rid of Silverfish

The bane of every book collecting person: the Silverfish. DUN DUN DUNNNNN!!! How to get rid of them? If one book has been infected, place it inside an air-tight plastic bag along with some silica gel desiccant. The silica gel is important to get rid of moisture, because you will now place the sealed plastic bag with the book in it inside the freezer. Leave it in there for a couple of days so that those bugs catch their death of cold. If you're feeling particularly paranoid, (like I usually am) feel free to leave the plastic bag in there for a week. If they're not dead, then you might likely have an infestation of zombie silverfish , which is out of the scope of this blogpost. But what if a whole colony of silverfish decided to invade your whole bookcase? Then you have to make sure you're ready for war. Place a generous amount of silica gel (or if you can find it, diatomaceous earth) behind your books at the back of the shelves so that moisture levels remain low.
