IF - Obsession

I have had an obsession (if one could call it that) with transformers since elementary school.  My latest transformers related project was a competition for a transformers website to design them a mascot.  Here he is:

Also I compiled the process images:

Bugs Bunny Drawing

I was never a fan of those drawing exercises that involved breaking down the subject into sketchy circles.  Today Abraham Piper posted one over at his blog that involved Bugs Bunny.  Since I asked him to submit his attempt (which he graciously did) I find it only fair that I submit my attempt.  I also wanted to test the method to see how well it works.   
My first attempt not looking directly at the tutorial.

My second attempt referencing the tutorial.  I guess there is some value in it after all.

New House

So we are buying a house. Who knew a major life decision could sneak up on you so stealthy? Saturday July 2nd we decided to check out a house in the neighborhood that was being posted – by Wednesday we had a purchase contract signed – the next week we have an inspection – and now this week we have financing under way and a closing date for late August.

Buying a house meant coming to a lot of decisions quickly. We will be tied to the Dallas area for awhile and we found out that we were okay with that. More than okay, we are excited about planting ourselves in the Junius Heights neighborhood. We both have really good jobs, we have family relatively close by, a lot of good friends, a great church, and both have really enjoyed living in East Dallas this past year.

It is a 3 bedroom 1 bath Arts and Crafts house built in the year 1924. Beautiful front porch with a mammoth Bodock tree on the east side. We are excited about moving at the end of August (providing everything goes smoothly in the meantime) and looking forward to having people over.

Some pics (more to come later this month):

Backyard is huge and a bit wild.

Obi Wan Hope Poster

Just nerding up a now classic poster.

And I thought it should also come in 'Jedi Spirit' blue.
