melepi•It's almost a shame covering them with the mattress. Lol! Finally! My shitty bed related back problem is taken care of! Now I can focus on saving for the Cintiq. I hate when large necessities add up at once - but it feels awesome to finally get them together! The mats smell wonderful! And they're very solid. Not flimsy at all. Even though they're 70lbs each, they're so much easier than a mattress! The fact they're long and thin allows you to have better leverage. I moved everything by myself, and the only thing that gave me problems was the old queen mattress (which fought me the entire time). I'm so glad I went with this idea. And to add, it gives extra "floor space" for things too important to be directly on the floor. The mattress I have was on sale at Sears for $100, and it's a 6" thick memory foam thing. So I was able to get a semi-portable mattress ahead of time instead of waiting 6 more months to afford the Shikibuton! The mats alone have made a huge difference! If I ever have the place to do it I'm totally tatami-tizing the floors! These things are GORGEOUS and they smell like fresh grass!• #japan#japanese#tatami#bedroom#makeover4mon
melepi•Good ol' faithful Intuos4. I had to return the Yiynova. It wasn't a bad tablet but the darn thing wouldn't cooperate with my computer for some reason. Anyway I was able to reinstall my prior tablet again (the drivers clash and require a bunch of rebooting). I'm actually surprised that I haven't lost my coordination after 5 months of no use. Here's the new cover for #ChasingShadows I'm splitting it into two 150 page volumes and am doing a fun chakra based color theme. This one is reddish/yellow tones. The other will be blue/purple tones. Both will have pink and green in the mix since that's the middle chakra... Listen to me going on about chakras. It's been a long night...• #Art#illustrations#comics#manga#graphicnovels#ETs#Greys#zetas#cute#GirlsLove#AlienLove#Yuri5mon
melepi•HAHAHA!!! IT'S SO GHETTO!!! I feel like we're smoking a doobie while sitting on a beanbag down in a black-light basement decked out with tie-dye, paisley and hippy beads!• #ClassicDrWho#1960s7mon
melepi•A cover sketch I've recently finished for ChasingShadows v2. Clar and Jen. The "Love" doodle was actually the randomized beam filter. I thought its timing was pretty clever to choose this one, when it's been lines, so I just had to leave it!• #GirlsLove#ETs#Aliens#Greys#Zetas#Art#Manga#sketch7mon
dianadurangigio I can't find this anime!! Where can I watch it? Looks amazing
melepi@dianadurangigio lol!!! Thats because this is MINE. It's my original story I'm working on. It's going to be a graphic novel. Www.kikostudios.net the link is there on the right under projects. It's on hold at the moment but you can see what I have up so far. I'm glad to hear it looks amazing! I hope you enjoy what's up so far.
dianadurangigio WOW that's awesome!! I spent a good 20 minutes trying to find it haha. I'm excited to see your completed work :) I used to dream of an alien that would visit me all the output my childhood and teens and eventually developed "feelings" kinda strange but then I saw this and was like woo aaaahh!!!
melepi@dianadurangigio haha oh no!! Sorry about that! I would've sent the direct link but it's so long and the blogspot/blogger part seems to vary at times so the other seemed simpler lol - aww! Sounds like you're a contactee too! The visits are often stored in the dream memory because our awake memory would usually disregard it since it's so out of the ordinary due to conditioning here. They also visit while in an altered state. I have these "trances" a lot where I "wake up" but I'm awake as if I'd never been asleep and I get irritated because I remember these long deep conversations with them but can't remember a damn thing!! Lol!
melepi•What a thing to wake up to! I let my coconut butter harden without stirring it or smacking the air pockets to the surface... This is how it naturally settled. Heehee! I'm guessing the large splotch is from where I poured it in• #vegan#coconut#butter#raw#FunWithFood7mon
