I love working with period pigments, today the stars were lapis and vermillion, oh and a little lead white in the pink I made up. They are silky and luminous.

If you're looking for a way to invest a little (or a lot) then Acorns may be a good option for you. I'm going to be using it to round up the purchases on our credit card.

Reading a financial blog piece I read the following quote which is awesome:

"In other words, if you can make it through the first 10 years [of retirement] without severely depleting your portfolio or inflation going out of control, your portfolio is likely to enter Too Big to Fail territory.  I’ve never heard better news, because I’ve always wanted to be a Bank"

A couple of weeks ago at Mudthaw one of our local fencers, Baron Therion Sean Storie, was inducted as a member of the Order of the Silver Rapier. This is the piece that I made for him.

I've wanted to use this source for a very long time; with his annual tournament at War of the Roses I felt this was finally the opportunity.

This fascinating new video made for English Heritage shows how Greater #London has grown over the space of almost 2000 years.
The video focuses on roads and settlements and also shows where listed buildings are around the city. http://www.london24.com/entertainment/around-the-web/video_shows_how_london_evolved_since_410_ad_1_3593199

This past weekend I was reminded that I still hadn't posted about he piece I did for +Molly Eskridge when elevated to the Order of the Laurel two weeks ago.

I worked closely with +Myra Hope Eskridge in the hopes that we could achieve something that Dreda would love.

Erm, YAY! Spider-man should have been under Marvel's control all along. It's good to see that they'll finally be able to bring him into the grand story arch.

This sounds interesting and definitely something I'm likely to get into given the names involved.
