This morning I loaded up my array of carved pumpkins.  It's been 2-3 years since I did a major pumpkin for Halloween, and this year I'm thinking I might tackle the Jotunheim Beast.  I'd have to use a supplementary pumpkin to supply its side-face flaps, and not sure about the head spikes, but anything with a huge mouth and fangs like that has to be a contender.  Alternatively, I might try for the troll from SWatH.  Both monsters have the relatively flat faces I need for this medium.

Originally northerner (settlement person, 3rd generation RCMP family) mostly from the area now called Nunavut. Originally trained as an accountant, which financed my being an SF/F film and related media fan (ST, SW, B7) and broad-spectrum comics fan through the '80s into early '90s. Threw that life over 14-15 years ago to re-tread as, today, a vastly happier programmer of radar data processing looking to get creative again.

Most of what you'll see here for the next while dates from 1997 and earlier; as I'm focusing on fic for the moment, it may take a while to get current art rolling in again.

Well, widely, and weirdly read SF/fantasy/history and mythology buff, these days getting l

Arguably evidence for reality being every bit as odd as comic books.

Cool. :) didn't know you did jiu jitsu. How many years?

About 10 years over 12 years (took a couple of year-long breaks).  Got my basic black belt back in 2005, but since messing up both shoulders (rotator cuffs) in 2011 doing big diving roll breakfalls when too heavy and not nearly flexible enough, I'm now calling myself fully retired.  Got my dominant side rehabbed OK, but the off side is still giving me grief--if I can ever get myself fit enough again, it's definitely time to move to tai chi or aikido.

Ai, I see. Hope you recover though, but black belt - wow, that is great! :-)
