This is the fearsome snailodon. One of the stupidest and spineless among the prehistoric species. They feed on meteorite dust. In large groups they have the power to create a strong magnetic field that sucks meteorites from space. It is speculated that a big gathering of about 200,000 snailodons created a massive magnetic field that pulled a gigantic meteorite straight on their screaming faces later causing the extinction of the dinosaurs. They will always be remembered as an evolutionary disgrace.

This is the quadropus. It is the less known relative of the octopus. Their smile is very misleading as they can be quite ferocious. They feed on lost treasures from drowned ships. They especially like gold coins. Their size is about that of a stray cat and if they are afraid they shoot out pink colored (strawberry flavored) ink.

Here's another oddity from our living-room. It's one of those fancy candle holders. This one is made of black metal (though I'm more into thrash-metal...) with spiral shapes and round stones of various colors. We have so many of them candle holders in our house and they always seem to find themselves closed inside some closet...

Recently, I finished reading this comic book. It's about a society very much like the one depicted in Orwell's 1984. Only here, there is a masked hero (wearing a Guy Fawkes costume), trying to free the people from the tyranny of their government. The story seems to always remain relevant as even today there are places in our world with frightening resemblance to the society in the book.

This is the tea pot drawing that I posted in the "75 ways to draw more" Flickr group. The occasion was Michael Nobbs birthday. We had a virtual tea party that was secretly arranged by Clara. It was a lot of fun drawing this and watching the other group members contributions. What a lovely idea for a birthday party!

Altitude is a game of fast-paced aerial combat. The players are split into two teams and the objective is to destroy the opponent's base by use of bombs. The graphics are drawn in a beautiful cartoon style and the game is just plain fun to play. I'm already hooked. You can try the demo. Oh, and I give this game extra points for having a linux port.

It is Saturday evening. I lie comfortably on the sofa. The giant plant in front of me. A gentle breeze brushes my bare feet. It's dark outside. A small, smiling moon is showing behind the branches of a tree. Sound of cars driving on the street below. A new week will start in a few hours. I pray to God to have the strength and wisdom to handle whatever situations this week holds for me.
