Stuff to Do: Draw Every Pratchett and Kate Milford Character You Can Remember and a Bunch of Others

Long enough title?

Okay, please don’t kick me out of the Pratchett club, I do actually remember more than 4 characters. It’s the same with Kate Milford. They are just the only characters important/detailed/interesting/unique enough to draw, or that I have already drawn. I am considering doing the men black-on-black from The Left Handed Fate (Milford), and maybe Clem and Georgie.

I apologize for the following few italic paragraphs. They are just me trying to make myself feel better about my hobbies. Summed up: I DO NOT LIKE FASHION DESIGN. Shorts & a T-shirt for me. I just like drawing and books, specifically Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series and Kate Milford’s less creepy ones. I also apologize for writing so much/too much/nonsense. All you need to know is from ‘I have‘ (head of the list) to the end of the bold text following.

Stuff to Do: Make an army of paper foxes

Want to waste paper? Waste space? Time? With mildly satisfying results?
Proof that you’ve got to much time: you’re making armies of simple origami foxes. I’m not much of fan of origami, nor craft blogs, but does make interesting photos… (and blog posts, I hope) Note: THESE ARE NOT CATS!! Why would I make a hundred paper CATS?

I started this three weeks ago. On day 1, I made 42. I slowed down after that because it really is a complete waste of paper (*gasp* SAVE THE TREES) to around 5 a day. I now have 103. I’m sorry I did this. It isn’t really what I do here (except for the pi bit), but it is fun.

Stuff to Do: Plane 02

I’ve had too much time on my hands during lockdown, I guess. So I started making polystyrene model planes.

I painted this one red and yellow, just because it was similar to the colour scheme of the impressive Cold War dogfighter that I based the model on in one particular picture that I saw of it.

Stuff to Do: Plane 01

I’ve had too much time on my hands during lockdown, I guess. So I started making polystyrene model planes.

Plane 1: mostly a test. I was aiming for light. Mistake. It did mostly fly straight, though, if not far. It didn’t do well in wind, although I planned it to do so specifically. I painted it black, because I was going for a specific awesome plane that I can’t actually remember the name of right now. Black is a realistic colour for an aeroplane. Not how I painted Plane 2.
