I made two icons for the release of Batman v Superman - feel free to snag with credit to me.
Cheers!

And all through the house...

Well there is just me here but I am stuck in my house as today there is a Cal Football game - not just any game but THE BIG GAME between Cal and Stanford. Thousands of people will descend upon my neighborhood and be obnoxious. I cannot move my car because there are no parking spaces to be had. It is just - well - inconvenient. I am staying in the neighborhood and will do things within a walk of the house. I can go to CVS - do laundry and might just get my nails done as something to do for me. My nails look terrible and have for a while. I would love to have my nails done. So I might.

So next week is the big gobble - Thanksgiving. I am going to try and eat reasonably. I am doing this thing called - Maintain - Don't Gain. And I don't want to gain weight this holiday season. In fact, I would like to lose a couple of pounds this holiday season. So I am going to try that. Maybe one pound.

I am having a friend over for Gobble Day and we are going to have chicken and sides from Whole Foods. We will watch movies. I am going to see if we can do some walking that day and get some exercise. That sounds healthy. Then Friday we are going mini-golfing and then Saturday I don't know what is up.

Tonight I am going to see Hunger Games Mockingjay 1. I am kind of excited about it. I really like this series and read all of the books. So that is cool. The books were great and I read them pretty fast.

Anyhoo. Work is work. My supervisor has a work style that is really alienating. She likes to do everything at the very last minute - with very little planning. This is not really my work style. I like to do things with planning and well in advance. So - getting used to skin-of-the-teeth things here. It is pretty stressful and not that comfortable. I am going to look around and apply for other jobs. I am not liking how things are going.

Anyways - hope all is well with you where you are and I have caught up on reading LJ - just not commenting much. I have lots of graphics to make so I might do that today. Get on my old XP PC and do that. La.

See you around and have a great weekend!

Here and there - hither and yon. Doing this and that. Little of this and that. Uhh.

I had all my work projects finish up in October and so work is easier now. I have all fun stuff to do now - like our holiday party and other easy things. I am keeping my eye out on the job market and edited my resume this week. Things are shifting at work in terms of the leadership so I have to be ready to move if I need to. Best to have it all prepped. I would like to stay at the Uni but I might branch out to other organizations.

Getting ready for the holidays - gobble day and Hanukkah and Christmas. I am staying here on the West Coast. I have visitors coming here so that will be fun - [profile] khylea is coming and we will be going to see The Hobbit - Battle of Five Armies in December and hang out here at Christmas so good times, good times.

Anyhoo. That is it. I should make some graphics but am not motivated to.

I have been reading but not commenting all that much. I do try and read everything though.

Cheers to you!

Things seem a bit better today. I was super productive and adopted a no stick attitude. I have decided to be impervious to things that happen and work more on getting out of my current position. This shift in thought put me in a better frame of mind. I also was super productive and I got a lot of things done on bitchetta's event. I am professional and would never let her thing effect how I perform on a project. That is how I roll.

Anyhoo. Glad, I am that it is Friday.

So my old PC has decided to crap out on me. I think it is finally dying. I do have another computer (a mac) but the PC was my graphics making machine so not sure what I am going to do about making graphics right now. I cannot decide if I should replace the PC or not. What do people with macs do about making graphics? Are there programs out there for the mac? Just checking.

So that is about it from this end. Thanks to everyone for the supportive comments on my last post. Really appreciate it.

Still hot here but it is a dry heat. *wilts* I cannot take much more but according to the iphone tomorrow will be 10 degrees cooler. Praise be the weather genies. I cannot wait for that. I forgot to water my plants so I am sure they all died today. I want all new ones anyway. Kind of tired of those anyhoo.

So I have had to go to the chiropractor again with this neck injury. I just put myself on hiatus at most of the graphics comms I make in. I am taking the month of October off. My chiro wants me to reduce my time on the computer as much as possible so got to do that. I have to work so that leaves personal time on the computer. I am really going to try this limiting my home time on the computer and see how I do. No one is liking my graphics stuff right now anyway so I might as well not make anything. Not sure why that is. Personally, I like my stuff so I don't care. I don't want to make what other people make and will not copy stylings of other people. Also, that is less work for me so it is all good. Less repetitive strain! Ha! So really - I am not looking for pity on the graphics thing. I like what I do and make what I want to. That is it for me. This is not a graphics rant it is how I feel about graphics. I do debate making at all sometimes so a break is in order. A month off is just about right. I am sure I will get my mojo back - and if I don't, that is something.

Anyhoo, another hot day here. I am going swimming tonight and will try and NOT be on the computer tonight. *breaks out into a cold sweat*

Ha. See you around!

And having an evening cup of coffee. Woo hoo. Party party. Friday night! Go me! Made it on my Keurig. It tastes good too. Green Mountain something or other.

So I got my new timesheets at work which confirms that my reclass went through. I get to delete my hourly ones and fill out these new ones. I only have to put in time off I take and no longer have to report hours worked. I am exempt! Wootly woo! Professional person me! That rocks! My HR person is working on my raise so will see where that goes.

I am looking forward to the weekend and made some cool icons from papers tonight. They came out well. All different and interesting. I have to remember to look back on my gallery as Agie reminded me tonight, I have some pretty things on there that I have no offered. I guess I move forward and forget what I have there. I have 831 icons there so that is a lot!

Happy weekend to everyone on my flist. Hope you are enjoying your night. Here is a pic I shared on facebook and just adore. I thought I would post it here and send this out to you all here. Just love this.

I am going to see Ted tonight. I am very excited about this film. I am a big fan of Marky Mark Wahlberg and think this will be a raunchy romp and full of laughs. I am going out to dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant down in Emeryville, Casa Poblana and plan on having a nice big meal.

I took little Ms Thing (the boo cat) to get a feline manicure today. Her nails were terribly long and she was catching on everything. So I found a place that will cut her nails for 10.00 and even though she growls a bit - the guy there is so quick with the clippers - she gets one hiss out and she is like done. Zippety doo da. All done and back in the carrier. I wish I could do it that fast but I can't. Anyhoo. It is much better and she won't hurt me or catch herself on everything here. She has recovered from the trip in the car so that is good.

That is all I have. I posted graphics offers at [livejournal.com profile] enchantedrealms and [livejournal.com profile] juicy_grapes. Feel free to check those out.

Also - we are looking for graphics makers at [livejournal.com profile] enchantedrealms so if you lean that way and are interested in a fantasy-oriented kind of thing, leave me a note or check out that comm. It is a very relaxed place with great members. No stress, no fuss. Lots of fun. You can leave me a note if you know of someone too. I am looking for people who do icons, blinkies, siggies and stuff like that. Any of those is good.

Cheers to you all!

I made this today and thought I would share it. This doll is so very Aegnor to me. He kills it!

I just love him! His hair could be a little spikier but it pretty much works. Sharp Flame, the Fell Fire! Font is Ringbearer to keep with the Tolkien theme.

Not taking requests, I am just sharing what I made. Please don't ask for this one.

So someone posted and asked people what they thought of graphics makers and graphics communities and my inner yawl came to the fore and all this stuff churned up. I let fly with this ranty comment. I really did but it was how I genuinely felt. Comments were screened so no one else could see them but I want to show my peeps here what I said and see what you all think of this.

The survey asks --

What do you all think of graphics makers and graphics communities?

Here is my rant on that... )

Feel free to comment to this post with what you think. I really want to solicit opinions and am leaving this post open. Please, no drama llamas. This is not about anyone. I am ask about the graphics world on LJ and it is not directed against anyone in particular. Nor was my rant. My rant was a general comment on trends that I see. No one take it personally or take it how it is - as my opinion on trends in the graphics communities.

Cheers.

Update:

-I have been banned by one maker who took offense to this post and my comment.
-Another maker took it very personally when it was more of a general comment.
-Whatever.

Here is the guy with his underoos. Woo. Our guy Ryan...he has a lovely arm here. Hot.

*Not safe for work*

More this way... )

In other news...

Work is going well but I am starting to make inquiries about other, higher paying positions on campus. This is to think about my future, retirement level etc. I have a phone interview for a specialist position on Monday at lunch and will see what happens with that. Woot. What I really want to do is negotiate my current position into a better paid set up. So wish me luck!

This weekend seems to be the weekend for all sorts of online tangles. Not going into it just not positive interactions. I guess it happens sometimes...not fun. Mainly over graphics which makes that really not fun. Oh wells.

Other than that, things are good. Laundry on the plan today and food shopping. Getting some things done for the week. --Cheers.

Here is today's selection of Bunday material. A worthy one, black and white from Dylan Rosser. Rafael.

*Not safe for work!*

Here he is... )

I have been having a calm and quiet weekend. It is raining today which makes me want to do indoor projects. I did an exercise walk yesterday. I think I will work on house projects. I might venture out to do some errands etc.

Next week I am taking a mini-vacay to the Seattle area to go to some hockey games with [livejournal.com profile] khylea and her folks. The Silvertips are the local Everett, WA team up there and my inner Aegnor really loves to watch the rough and tumble-ness of the game. Slammin and all that. I used to watch hockey when I was a kiddo in Boston -- back when the Boston Bruins were a dynasty so I really love hockey. Hockey players are in super shape and skating is fun to watch. Woot.

So that is my plan, getting ready for my trip and other things. I am taking a break from some of my graphics commitments and stepping back on that. Too much computer time and stuff. So I will do less on that and come back to that in March.

I expect to get my SV story back from beta any minute now and will be working on that to get that submitted. I hope to finish that before my trip.

So that is my update and hope you are having a good weekend.

New material on the "We Love Guys" site. This makes me happy as I was running out of material on my stomping grounds. This one is pleasing to the eye, and that is for sure.

Hope you all changed your clocks. It is the fall back thing. So extra sleep. I love that.

Today, I am going to get my nails done and then I have this empowerment yoga workshop for the afternoon. I am finding it really good. It combines some group work and the yoga thing. Really good activity. This meeting is our long 5 hour one so woo.

I am getting more comfortable with the new dresser here so that is working out. Adjusting.

Also--to let those of you know who know my graphics work, I am taking the month of November off from that due to neck and shoulder strain and will be back doing that in December if I heal up well.

Cheers and hope you all had a good weekend.

I have posted some World Cup Doll Tags here (on my doll group in an open post):

http://community.livejournal.com/sayclubsandmore/524889.html

These were made by Juana on my yahoo doll group specifically for the World Cup 2010. You will find them for the following countries:

Portugal, England, US, Italy, France, Holland, South Africa, Germany, Brazil and Australia.

Please comment on that post if you take one and if there is another country you would like one for. She is taking suggestions for them though that is not a guarantee she will make the tag.

Cheers and hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I am yet again the subject of a rant on someone's journal. Not in our circle but I had the audacity to suggest on the paidmembers forum that permanent members were being excluded from the little freebie that lj was giving out and perhaps that was not fair. I got some extremo reactions and someone posted a whole post about our exchange on her journal. Quoted me and what not. It is not all that important but kind of funny. I do like to argue so guess that is what that shows. No harm, no foul. I like to get my point across, stenuously. ;P

I am also sitting here and waiting for [livejournal.com profile] nienna_weeper to call. We are going for brunch here in Berkeley as she is on her vacay. I should spark up the camera and take some piccies of her and crew. Ya. So we will be down the street at The Drunken Boat Cafe for some eggs and stuff. I am so excited to see her! Woo.

Work will heat up this week as the students are back and we have Welcome Week going on. Lots to do and the pace will dial up a notch.

I opened my own personal site for graphics here;
http://www.phyncke-inc.webs.com/
I will always make freebies but this is open too.

And that is going very well and I am having fun with that.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend and things are going well. I feel like summer is over but there are still a few weeks and summer is late here as we get hot weather in September in the Bay area. Cheers and please read my reviews. I am having fun with those!

I have some special 4th of July blinkies for some of you here. This is a paid doll that I just love and I made this into a limited 4th of July thing. Mainly people I work with on graphics things etc.

Made for: aglarien, darklingfae, wildrosedragon, nienna_weeper, autumn_mist, lotrangel17, and wykkedwench

Thanks for all the good times and fun things you do for me and have a great holiday. Your blinks are behind the cut.

So I am at work this week and all my conversations have revolved around my face and this allergy attack. I almost feel like I should have done a little synopsis hand out to hand to people here so that I did not have to explain myself over and over and over and over. And over. Ah. It is nice that people are concerned but I hate explaining it again and again.

Today it actually looks better but my skin is red and blotchy. I need a lotion that does not have alcohol in it. You do not know how hard that is to find. All of them have this cetyl alcohol stuff which is reacting on my skin which is very sensitive right now. So I am going to the specialty place and I will see if they can mix me up something that will be soothing and not have that in it. I need to moisturize. Alcohol actually dries out your skin so I don't know why that is in all these creams and moisturizers. I have spent so much time here reading ingredients. It is just ridiculous. Frig.

Very vexing.

Graphics related---skip if you are not interested....
Big doing in the graphics world and it is very exciting. I have been talking with dolliers...doll makers. There were some issues and disagreements at first. Hurt feelings and issues of copyright infringement over their work but I spent much time last weekend and subsequently in discussion via comments. A few graphics makers did and a new idea sprang from this---A collaborative message board for us all to hang out on and swap ideas. How wonderful. I think it is going to be fabu and if the kerfuffle dies down and things calm, I think that it will be like putting peanut butter and chocolate together...a great new flavor. Graphics makers and dolliers working together. So that is what I am working on. So anyone who makes graphics with dolls should feel free to comment in here if you are interested in participating. Better yet email me at jhfink@sbcglobal.net (use the subject Doll-Graphics Alliance if you could). I can keep you informed and let you know when we have the community set up. It will be on a board and not livejournal.

Work is work and things are changing around here. I will post about my new opportunities later.

Cheers.
