Finished rioross' shirt and got it to him! there's a pic up on his DA gallery. I'll put it up on mine eventually. Time to start on the next one! :D

I am so tired from work and stuff. I just want to sleep for like a whole day.

Bought many DVDs last week: seasons 5 and 6 of Lost, the Back to the Future trilogy, and Hot Fuzz. But we're having a garage sale, so I can get rid of some old ones I don't want.

Had an interview this morning for a part time art teacher job. Very excited and hopeful!

Need to start getting ready for the MCAD Art Sale! It looms!!!

Renting Ally McBeal season 4 because RDJ is in it. He's looking pretty hot (as usual) so far, and there promises to be much singing.

Need more Top Gear soon, even if it's Aussie or American. I meed it! Damn you, Stig-based problems!

Making another shirt for rioross! It has a Maserati MC-12 on it. I'm very excited. The painting part is finishing up drying now, and then I can do the embroidery! :D

Have Maroon 5's new song in my head, it won't go away! DO WANT!

I have a whole bunch of zoo drawings to put up here, but I can't actually be bothered to scan them ATM, so whatever. Someday they'll get up here. Maybe once I fill up this sketchbook (nearly there!).

Going to hang out with the CON group for a marathon of Legends of the Hidden Temple tonight! Woot!

And I really want to open up a little tiny shop. I'm tired of working for other people.

I dunno. That's really all I've got.

There are so many projects that I want to start right now.

I still have a couple of Oliver tshirts to finish for people, but I keep getting distracted by other ideas! I really need to get those done so I can give them to their owners and get paid. Also, it'd be an excuse to go visit MCAD again.

Speaking of MCAD, a few of the people I graduated with have set up a club type thing where we meet once a month and do projects and have critiques, just to get us actually working on things, as it turns out most of us have hardly been drawing at all. For next month we're making valentines for each other. Mine are all going to have cars on them, obviously.

So I was thinking about my tshirts the other day, and I think I may want to start making like patches of something that can be ironed/sewn on to things so that I don't have to worry about buying shirts or whatever, and they can be put on other things as well. I haven't figured out how to go about it yet, but if anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate it!

I did remember that at the MCAD print shop they have fabrics that are attached to paper that you can print on and then remove. It's be cool to just paint the cars and print them on that, and then embroider those and have them be the patches? It'd take less time I think. I'll have to do a test one.

Also, I REALLY want to make a mini-portfolio of car illustrations and stuff and send it to Top Gear magazine in an email or something. I've been wanting to for a while, and I've noticed that they've been trying out new illustration styles in the columns section, so now would be the time I think! Been trying to draw more cars and get a bit better now.

Been trying to write a new Top Gear fanfic as well. This may be the strangest combination of fandoms Ive ever written. Only have half a page of story and an outline, but it's comig along! I should not be allowed to watch Animorphs and Top Gear consecutively any more. It's a bad plan.

1- How did you get into TG?

Through Doctor Who fandom. I had heard that David Tennant had been on it, and managed to catch that episode. Immediately after that was the one where they chase a Range Rover Sport with a tank,andI was hooked!

2- Do you watch it for the cars or the humour?

Both. I knew nothing about cars before, but now I really like them and am trying to know more about them.

3- Who is your fave presenter?

I think now I like all three of them about the same. It used to be Richard was the only one I really liked, but they grew on me, and I love them all for different reasos.

4- Why?

I suppose I should write answers for each? I love Richard because he's dead hot; I love when he gets a bit angry, and when he wears leather, and I love his hair and his shortness and how he buys crap cars off Ebay when he's drunk. James is my second favorite ATM; I love his hair, and his bad shirts, and how he keeps motorbike parts in his bath, and how when I read his columns it sounds just like how he talks, and that he loves toys and gets paid to play with them. I love Jeremy because he's so loud and opinionated, which is something I could never be, I love all his crazy ideas, and his jeans that are almost too tight, and how adorable he can be sometimes.

5- If you were to switch jobs with any one of the presenters for one day, which presenter's job would suit you you best?

I think James probably. I could never be as shouty as the other two, and I'd love to build a giant Lego house and drive stuff like the RR Phantom Drophead around.

6- Do you think you resemble one of the presenters in some way?

Probably Richard, cause I'm short and I just got my hair cut mostly off. But I think I act more like James.

7- What do you want in a car: POWEEEER!!!1one!, beauty or comfort?

I think a combination, but maybe a bit less on the POWEEEEER!!!! really. I think I go more for how well it drives and looks.

8- Got a favourite car?

Fiat 500 Abarth hands down. I want one so badly. It's adorable and the perfect size for me, but it thinks it's a Lambo.

9- Favourite strange vehicle the boys built during challenges?

Jeremy's Toybota that sank, or the swan/motorbike thing that Hammond built in Vietnam.

10- Do you often ask yourself: "How hard can it be?"

I don't say it, but if someone else does I always say "Don't say that!" automatically.

11- Hazard a guess to the Stig's identity.

He's either an alien with telepathic powers, a BBC intern, or Damon Hill.

12- Ever been to MPH/Top Gear Live?

I want to, but they have to come over to America first! We're much nicer in MN, I promise!

13- If so, where?

See above. I'd love to go over to the UK, though. Maybe someday.

14- Ever been to a studio recording of TG?

See above! But hopefully my shirt will make it there!

15- Do you read TG-related books?

Oh yes. And I plan on reading more.

16- If so, which ones have you read or do you have?

So far just the Big Book of Top Gear and On the Edge. I also read the magazine.

17- Did the "Good News" joke cause you to not be able to look at a Dacia Sandero in a normal way anymore?

Since I'd never heard of it before, yes! Every time someone says Good News! now, I think "is it the Dacia Sandero?"

18- Want to try blending something with Jeremy's V8 blender?

Yes please! I think that as long as it doesn't involve a brick you could make something delicious in it!

19- Did you laugh or feel sorry when Richard's beloved Oliver sank?

I always just kinda feel bad and want to hug him a bit.

20- Did you honestly believe Michael Schumacher is the Stig?

Until he started talking maybe, then I was all "put the helmet back on please!"

21- If you got to spend 24 hours in a Smart ForFour with the presenter of your choice, who would it be?

James or Richard. Either way I'd be happy. It'd just get a bit cramped with Jezza in there I think.

22- Tell us what you two did during that day you got to spend together in that Smart.

In this case, let's go with James! We could drive around and talk about all kinds of stuff, like music and cars and stuff like that. I'd probably bring something to do if I got bored, like embroidery or my sketchbook, because I'm a dork. We could sit at the beach or just go drive it around the in the country or something. I don't care!

23- You got to be the Star In A Reasonably Priced Car! What would your lap have been like?

I actually had a dream like that once. LOL. It went badly. I think I'd probably spin out a lot from going too fast into a corner, and then be afraid to go too quicky and do it again, thus ending up with a very slow time.

24- Got a favourite part of the TG test track?

I like the second-to-last corner, because I could listen to Hammond say the word "panultimate" all day long. I don't know why, but when he says it it's hot.

25- Time to show off your TG merchandise! What TG-related goodies do you have?

Made my own shirt with Oliver on it, which I wear lots! Also have the 2009 calender, lots of magazines, a little magnet Cool Wall, On The Edge and The Big Book of Top Gear, along with all my downloaded episodes and other shows they've been on.

26- Do you think James should get a haircut?

No! I love his hair! Sometimes it looks really terrible, but every so often it's just perfect and I think he looks really hot. He doesn't look as good with short hair.

27- What is your all-time favourite TG episode?

Do not ask me this!!! I can't answer! although I really like the one where they go golfing and fail at an art museum, and Hugh Grant is there. He's lovely.

28- Favourite Jeremy quote?

"No!!! JAAAMES!!!!! *excited weezing noise*"

29- Favourite James quote?

"I do not wish to help Jeremy Clarkson be amusing, in the event of my death."

30- Favourite Richard quote?

"If you ask me to dance, I'll stab you."

31- Favourite "Some say..." line?

Some say he names all his potted plants Steve.

32- Spanners or hammers?

shotguns! LOL. although hammers are a close second.

33- If you got to change something about your fave presenter, what would it be?

Nothing! They are all prefect!

34- Skip this question if you're a straight guy: Got a crush on any one of the presenters?

Erm... all of them? And also the Stig and Andy Wilman.I am a sad, sad girl.

35- Your favourite presenter takes you out for dinner. What would the evening be like and what would you have for dinner?

Well, I'd invite them all, so it would certainly be eventful! I'd actually be up for cooking if they didn't mind. And then I'd just like to hang out.

36- Ever set fire to a shed with a jet-engine bbq?

No, but it was epic and I nearly died of laughing.

37- Flappy-paddles or gear lever?

Gear lever! I want a proper manual car next, please! Haven't driven one in ages.

38- Pagani Zonda or Bugatti Veyron?

Zonda for me. Pantomime horse over physics lesson any day. In lime green, please.

39- Ever been shocked by something that happened on TG?

Yeah, all the time, and then I think "I'm not really surprised, this IS Top Gear. They are all 8 years old!"

40- Favourite Special?

I'd like to re-watch the Polar special, but I'm torn for favorites between American road trip and Botswana.

41- You get to put a car in each of the sections of the Cool Wall. Which car would you put in Seriously Uncool, which one in Uncool, which in Cool and which car would go into Sub-Zero?

Seriously Uncool: Dodge Nitro. Most hideous thing I've ever seen.
Uncool: Porsche Panamera. I still think it looks like an Austin Maxi. Although I do like the satnav in the dash. Sexy.
Cool: Honda Clarity. Doesn't look amazing, but I love the idea of hydrogen power. Now we just need more cars and fill-up stations.
Sub-Zero: Fiat 500 Abarth, but it's already there! WIN!

42- Ever met one of the presenters?

Not yet, but someday hopefully!

43- Imagine the TG presenters having special powers. What would they be?

I'm actually writing a fic about this...
Jeremy had pyrokenesis, and can also change people's opinions to his with his voice. James is like cyclops from XMen, but it's only one eye and the beam is British Racing green. He wears ad eyepatch. Or a monocle. Richard is basically Wolverine, 'cept his claws are made from carbon fiber.

44- Think up some new nicknames for them.

I can't do this, as I love their nicknames already!

45- Do you have a good sense of direction?

I think so. I can generally figure out where I am without satnav or anything.

46- Got a friend who resembles one of the presenters?

Not at the moment, although my friend Madison and I decided that we are Jeremy and Hammond. We just need a James.

47- Jeremy "accidentally" cuts your favourite car in two with a hacksaw. How do you react?

I'd probably be angry, but then laugh. Then we could put it back together with some welding and duct tape, and maybe add some machine guns and a wood floor with bunk beds or something.

48- James asks you to help him clean and sort his spanners. Will he be happy with your cleaning?

I wouldn't mind, but I don't think I'd be up to his standards. I'd probably run off and draw his motorbikes or something. Or pet Fusker.

49- Richard has been hypnotised again and glomps you. Your reaction?

Find whoever hypnotized him and beat them with a large spanner until they fix him.

50- Some say...

That I officially love the Mighty Boosh, and there's a large box of Lego hidden in my closet. All I know is, it's time for a James May fix.

Here is what I've got for t-shirt commissions at the moment:

So far these are all Oliver ones, but I'm working on some others as well.


*shirt for HamHamRibon-chan: Sent out yesterday!
*surprise shirt for Richard Hammond: Also sent out yesterday!
*shirt for Madison: painted, unpaid, un-sent
*shirt for Lindsay (my teacher from MCAD): bought the shirt!

also making one of a Lamborghini Gallardo that'll say "Lamborghini paints their cars yellow", which I'd like to sell maybe, and one of a Fiat 500, which I'm keeping, but am willing to take more commissions for similar ones if people like it.

I'm gonna post some more stuff on my commissions later tonight, but I I have to get ready for work now.

Here is what I've got for t-shirt commissions at the moment:

So far these are all Oliver ones

*b-day present for Alisson: COMPLETELY COMPLETE
*shirt for HamHamRibon-chan: COLPLETE, unpaid, un-sent
*surprise shirt for Richard Hammond: nearly done!
*shirt for Madison: painted, unpaid, un-sent
*shirt for Lindsay (my teacher from MCAD): bought the shirt!

I also have to make up a few things for the MCAD Art Sale which is next month, so some of these may get put off a bit if they don't need to be anywhere by a set date. So, if you're not Hammond or Ribon-chan, you may have to wait a bit. But they WILL get done. I PROMISE.

If you'd like to be added to the list, please PM me or comment here! As I've said, I'm willing to put other things on shirts, although I'm quite liking the idea of cars right now. I plan on doing some of the ones for the art sale with Bugatti Veyrons and maybe some Lamborghinis of some kind or old American muscle cars like Mustangs or Challengers. Not sure. The cost is gonna be $40 for the time being, but it might go up after I go talk to some people with samples and stuff.

I'm currently taking commissions for embroidered t-shirts, as you may have read in my last journal. So far I've just been making more of my Oliver shirt that I have posted on here, but I'd be happy to do any color of shirt with anything on it.

I'm charging $40, unless you provide your own shirt at which point I can lower the price a bit.

In the case of the Oliver shirts, the type of shirt I'm using is actually on clearance at my work now, so if you'd like one of those, I'd like to no ASAP so that I can get the shirts for cheap before they're gone. Just let me know what size you need.

I'm willing to ship anywhere you like, so out of the US is not really a problem.

I currently have 2, possibly 3 orders to do, and I can probably take a couple more at the moment to have done by the end of the month if you like, or more for whenever after that.

Please comment here or message me if you have any questions or want to order one! Thanks!

So, kinda gave up on making hats for the time being. I started one, but then mom put my machine in the closet and I can't be bothered to get it down again.

So, I started embroidering t-shirts that I have lying around. I finished one with Oliver the car on it. I'll probably take pics of it later today and post them all. Gonna start another with a manatee on it, because I feel like it.

If anyone would like me to make a shirt for them, I'll totally do it! Just PM me or comment here and we can talk about it, since I haven't really figured out how I want this all to work. But I'm very much up for it!

Found Dead Set. Watched the first episode. Not sure that I like it that much. It's very well done though, and zombie!Davina was pretty awesome.

Stephen Fry is officially my new fandom while waiting for new Top Gear. I absolutely LOVE Last Chance to See, even though it's very sad sometimes. Waiting to be able to listen to what I'm downloading now, which is all the Harry Potter audio books from the UK, which are rad by him. Yay! and I have nearly all of QI as well.

Sad that James May's Lego house was taken down, but glad they're doing something good with it. Wish I lived over there so I could've been part of it. I hope they find Lego!Fusker.

Got a job at Target. Been doing my embroidery during breaks at work. My feet always hurt and I'm tired every day that I work, but it's money and a job for now, so I can deal with it.

Also, the new episode of House made me cry. Can't wait for more!

Had a sewing class today - came with my machine. Learned how to sew buttonholes easy! I want to get some of those fancy presser feet for it. Fancy!

Want to make hats now. Probably will tomorrow so I can sell them at the farmer's market I'm going to on Friday! Its FREE! I just need to borrow a table and sew a few more things maybe!

Top Gear season finale was sad but lovely. Can't wait for next season in November! I want full-contact airport equipment racing with touring car drivers! Yay!

Working on a dress for a "job". Need to go pick it up again and do some re-fitting. You can't expect me to fit to someone I've never met/seen/gotten measurements for, and wasn't planning to fit for anyways because you said this was a "test" piece. I don't have a magical dress form or something!!!

But anyways. Downloading like 6 episodes of QI (this seems to be my new obsession while TG is off all of a sudden) Stephen Fry FTW! Snagging all the episodes with Jeremy Clarkson in them. According to Wikipedia, he wins like all of them. LOL

Also addicted to Twitter now. I blame both Stephen Fry for being on it, and Top Gear for having Stephen Fry on and then bringing it up. My name on there is invisiblecake, BTW.

Has anyone heard of a show called Dead Set? It's supposed to be a bit scary from what I've heard, which is very little. It's British. If anyone knows where I can find it, I'll love you forever.

OMG I missed my 5000th page view! It was probably during Con or something.

I had a great time at Convergence, and I'll probably have some pics to post up here when I can be bothered to upload them and all. They need to go on Facebook and LJ as well...

I did so many things at Con that I'll probably forget lots of them here. Let's see...

I drank lots without getting drunk. I exterminated the Doctor and Doctor Horrible many times. I also stalked the both of them with 4 other girls who I was staying with. I did some karaoke, I tried to go to a panel that didn't exist, I bought a few things, I watched Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog with 500 people and it was actually a sing along (this is surprisingly fun and awesome)... I played with LED's, and I stayed up 'til 6 AM one night, and I ate cake and tea and cucumber sandwiches and actual food. I got rained on and went swimming and played Battleship lots, and danced a bit, and hung out with zombies.

I think that's a good summary for now... So many things! And then, I went home and watched Top Gear until I passed out!

Now I'm off to watch new Torchwood and sleep, because it is starting to get late and I have sleep to make up on!

It would have probably been smart of me to not click it myself in the first place, but I was feeling crap earlier, and was kinda out of it.

So, sorry people who I may or may not know!


Off to watch "Oz and James's Thinly Veiled Prelude to Gay Sexing" now! Because that's totally what it is at this point!

Went to the comic store last week, 3 days after the Farscape comic came out, and they were sold out. Damn.

Luckily, they are doing a second run, so the store is gonna hold one for me when they come in. We (Me and Jess) went in today. The guy who was working is kinda cute, in a geeky way, which I like. I hope he is there next week if I go check again. He is nice and likes Iron Man and stuff. Yay!

Still obsessed with Top Gear. May have scared Jess probably. Mostly with the descriptions of crack fic that I have read on LJ, but it's all so lovely that I can't help it! She will be forced to watch more of it before the semester ends. Can't wait until March for season 13! Aussie TG is descent, and will tide me over for a bit.

Richard looks good in a riding coat. Damn.

I can't wait for the new episode of Oz and James's Vaguely Disguised Gay Drinking Holiday! It's not really called that, but it might as well be! Makes me want to go to England and drink lots of delicious beer. Now I want a Guinness... But we have none! Why didn't I get any when we were out?!

Doctor Who wank is turning me off to the fandom. Shut up about 11 already! He hasn't even been on yet, and everyone is already judging him. It makes me not want to hang around people.

That is all.

So, I thought I'd finally check out Boom's website to find out about the whole Farscape comic thing, and am pleased with what I found.

Apparently, it wasn't quite finished, and they wanted to make it perfect, so they moved back the release date to December 24th! Which is fine with me if it's going to be that good looking. They had a few images up, and it looks like it picks up right where PK Wars leaves off, like exactly. And the art looks beautiful!

I can't wait to get it! Too bad I'll have to come all the way downtown to grab it, but it'll be worth it!

I just wish I would have known this before I spent all that time going to all those stores for no reason...

So, I went to 2 comic book shops the other day, hoping to find myself some delicious Farscape comics to read, but neither place had it!

I don't understand!

Well, actually, the first place I checked was a regular book store, and they don't have any sort of single issue comics at all, which is odd since they have so much manga and all those trades of things...

I ended up buying issues of Top Gear and Doctor Who magazines instead.

So then, i went to an actual comic shop on my way back from internship land, and they didn't have it either, which is weird since I asked them about it last time i went in for my Who comic fix, and they said they were getting it. But this was apparently untrue, and they said that they have the next few issues ordered, but NOT this one. it's the first issue! WTF

So then, I called Joseph and asked him to go to another shop with me, as I always forget how to get there. But when we got there, they said something like "well, we USED to have it a while ago, but not lately", as if there were comics out before this, which I'm quite certain there weren't...

So, either there's some sort of shipping problem, or these people are all idiots... or both. But I want my Farscape!!

At my internship now. Just finished and posted all of my illustrations, which is my project right now. What do you guys think?

I rally have a lot of vector things up at the moment. I need to scan some of my other stuff and stick that up, because vector isn't really my preferred way to work right now, so I feel weird with so much of it on the front page.

Also, I need to make TG/Katamari fan art bad. Maybe later today at home?

Speaking of TG, Jezza won Heat's weird crush of the year! That's 3 for 3 for TG now! This next ep is gonna be interesting, methinks... LOL

I've pretty much ran out of fic to read over on LJ, in terms of TG stuff. But, it's rec week in the coms, so there should be some new stuff up that I haven't seen soon enough.

I think the TG fandom may be the best fandom I've ever been in. There's pretty much no wank/ship wars, everyone is rally great, and the fic is so crack-tastic that it's scary. I love it!

Less than 2 weeks of school now! Just until next Thursday, and I'm done! Then I have another full week of internship, and I don't have to worry about that stuff anymore. Just one semester left then. *is slightly frightened*

After this, I'm going to make a quick stop at the comic store and hopefully pick up my copy of the Farscape comic! Delicious! I hope everything is as beautiful as I'm expecting. I dunno how my brain is gonna deal with the thought of actual new Farscape after so long. I hope it doesn't explode, and that I don't fan girl too much at the shop.

Will post more later probably about its epic-ness.
