I mentioned Danny Gregory's blog a while back. I finally decided to pick up one of his books and I am glad that I did. "Creative License" is intended to encourage everyone to delve into their artistic side (no matter how untalanted you think you might be) and begin your own journal. One of the reasons that I like this book is that it isn't a simple drawing instruction book. Danny goes into why he likes to journal and his own experiences. He also uses examples from his own journals (some I recognised from his website). Then there are examples of others who keep illustrated journals. If you are interested in starting up your own illustrated journal and want some inspiration then I highly recommend this book.
With regards "Doctor Who", "Doomsday" looked spectacular but just think of the big battles which could've built up between the Daleks and Cybermen if there had been more time between the unleashing of the Daleks from the Genesis Ark and their almost immediate demise as they are sucked into the void. A couple more episodes at this point, replacing "Love & Monsters" and "Fear Her", and it would truly have been epic!
They are great!! :)
Great job on yoru kitty too! Can't wait to see more of him! Have a good one!

I like the Ice Warriors as well, especially the black and white stories and especially the first, mainly because they haven't evolved a hierarchy. They're just Ice Warriors in their opening story, no Ice Lords etc. I know having an identifiable leader probably makes them more interesting as a race but the half mask gives away there's an actor inside to someone who first encountered them as a boy!
Anyway, it's nice to be able to read your blog again.
