star gazing

I was a bit distracted this week.  Everyone's done such pretty pictures of people looking at stars.

I was thinking of star gazers as amateur astronomers.  So I decided to do a nerdy picture about their modern counterpart - people who use their idle computers to search databases for stars and things.  Last week I read about how the  Einstein@Home project published a paper announcing their first discovery of a radio pulsar.

caged

This is a picture of the Bremen town musicians locked up in jail.  They beat up some men and stole their house.  In the story it says these men were thieves, but it didn't say how they knew that.  So I think they made it up to make themselves feel better.

artificial (flowers)

It's a bit late for Illustration Friday but I figured I might as well put it up.  We had to paint these artificial flowers in a painting class I did today.  I'm really not confident that I got any better at painting.
