Holiday Hangover 2012!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday, cause now we're in for 352 more days of people freaking the eff out because they don't understand Mesoamerican culture at all!

So for the first post of this new year, let's see what I got for Christmas. The short answer is, I got tons of books. Which is fine for me, since, as has been established, I am a huge nerd.

I finally have a decent collection of MC Escher engravings, and I got the companion book to Imaginative Realism and the already-read-and-excellent Hark! A Vagrant! collection. Best of all might be
Animal Anatomy; I can finally stop annoying the library since I have my own copy.

More art books! I am under good authority that the Don Hahn book is amazing, but I am curious as hell about the Terryl Whitlatch book and
Disney Lost and Found.

My cousins got me a lot of hilarious little gifts. That mug in front has a neat hidden secret:

(The one off to the side is meant to be a Deinonychus. Yeah...)

Project Feederwatch!

I never realised Kate Beaton's Hark, A Vagrant was available as a book too! Argh.

Yeah, I still need to get that one too...
The Whitlatch book is awesome - basically all sketches, with very little text. It never fails to get me in the mood for drawing!

Happy holidays Trish!

Interesting seed birdhouse. The origami Dinosaur Train cast also caught my eye. I used to make origami Pteranodon all the time; should upload a picture of one somewhere.

I you going to review "Color and Light" & "Animals Real and Imagined" at some point? I hope so as I'd really like to see what they're like inside.
