we salute you, youngster joey.
Good luck if you decide to brave Black Friday! I plan be at home and asleep while people are shopping, but obviously, Beavis and Butthead are well-equipped for the occasion. (I needlepointed them onto 10-count plastic canvas, and the confusing and accidentally topical sprite is from a SNES game.)
I <3 missy-tannenbaum’s sprite patterns, they’re so cute & quick.
…many of them translate well to Perler Bead crafting too ^_^

I don’t know why I felt this was Tumblr worthy, of all my blog posts, but I’m really thrilled with these patterns and hope people like stitching them! Also, if there are any other craft-happy Baccano fans out there, I’d love to hear which characters you’d like to see charted!
As a sprite, this is sort of lame, since Battle Arena Toshinden’s polygons were really hard to turn into a decent cartoon-type sprite, but as a cross stitch, once I get some glitter floss and specialty stitches involved in the weird fairy wing trim on her dress, Ellis is going to make a fine craft project for my next few days. (Note: I used her secondary color scheme from the PS1 game because, with the green hair, she looked like Spike Spiegel in drag.)
Earlier this week, I got an invite to Google+, and after two thrilling days on there, I can safely say that it’s just like every other social network I’ve been on, only not quite as interesting, both in terms of current content and design. That being said, does anyone want an invite to the beta? As far as I can tell, I can drag people into this until the nonexistent cows reach someone’s home.
I am trying my best to learn to control my tablet’s pen well, which I have failed at in the past, so I did this drawing of my avatar from TinierMe, seeing as I’ve got way too much time on my hands and see some sort of appeal in a doll maker that won’t just give you all of the items right off the bat. The major appeal of this avatar, though, is that she’s wearing only underwear and knee-high boots on her bottom half, so this portrait doesn’t really do it justice. Someday, I will be up to doing full artwork digitally, but until then, please enjoy this rubbish!
This is really rubbish, but my first memory is sitting in a car seat outside of a K-Mart in the middle of summer while my mom put stuff in the car’s trunk. It actually isn’t that interesting, even in hindsight, but there you have it!
I made the patterns for Elle and Gogo on my main blog, Dork Stitch, and it’s so cool to see them so nicely stitched, especially alongside two such nice new additions to the group! I had massive problems making a pattern for the Bride- I couldn’t get over wanting to put the black stripe on the side of her track suit! I just wish I could speak Spanish so I could directly comment on this. :S
It’s time to kill bill… Terminei meu ponto cruz do filme!
This is a Flipnote that I made about a day pivotal in the formation of a young Magnemite’s character. Some would call this elaborate doodling. I call it a portrait of the human (or in this case, Pokemon) condition.
Armed with an NES pallette and a scan of some official art, I put together this set of 8-bit sprites (inspired by fighting game bootlegs) of Deerling, from Pokemon Black/White to fit the NES look as closely as I possibly could. I’m not stitching this version of it- the one I’m using for craft purposes is a little more detailed- but this was still fun to do. Making things look properly 8-bit is spiffy.
