I realise that this blog has been a little dead of late. I assure you that I have quite the backlog of sketches and things that I will be posting. This evening I’m going to settle in and make a bunch of scans, so be prepared to be spammed. Thanks for your patience!

i just had a thought! it took them six years roughly to build Hadrian's wall right? so maybe you could structure it so you have six seasons, each one covering one year

You are brilliant! Start with Hadrian’s tour north, and then divide from there. Oooh… Now I want to do more research. :D Like that’s surprising.

ART THEFT

Hey, tumblr! yesterday, March 26, a piece of my art was stolen off the wall where it was in a show in Portland Maine. I spent a lot of time and effort on this, and i might even have gotten a scholarship from the installation it was in, but some douchebag walked off with it!

please, if tumblr can get people a fluffy chicken or a plane ticket, can you help me find my art? Even if you can reblog this, just in case someone sees it. If you have any information, PLEASE send me an ask.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I’ve got some serious carpal tunnel bullshit going on. However, this happened in Portland, ME. It’s a student’s art (I’m going to assume MECA).

Help them get this back, and check out the rest of their textiles while you’re at it, because they’re adorable.

A while back, I had grown somewhat frustrated by my inability to find a good website of folk songs. I wanted something that had a collection of lyrics and, hopefully, the tunes to go with them. There were a few out there that had a small number of songs, and some even had midi files — but that didn’t necessarily help with knowing which words corresponded with which notes! At the time, I started compiling lyrics to post on a blogspot account. Which, I must admit, I did not update particularly regularly. More recently, I decided to revive the project, and to record the songs myself just as a way of getting the melodies out there.
Thus, I present to you: The Folk Database Project. I’ll be posting as I have the time and recordings. Enjoy!

Once you get this you have to say five nice things about yourself and send to ten of your favorite followers! <3

My dear, seeing this made me smile a great deal. Thank you! Sorry it took me so long to get around to it.

So, without further ado, five things:

1. I have a very good memory for quotations and things of that nature (less so for where I’ve left my mug of tea).

2. I enjoy making people smile.

3. I’ve been told that I’m a good listener, and I very much hope it’s true

4. I’ve also been told that I’m good at contra dancing (and, regardless of the truth of that skill, I greatly enjoy doing it).

5. I play the fife rather well. Admittedly, I use it more as a folk flute than a military fife, but it makes me happy.
