Drops in Sea

This is my online scrapbook. My art has been moved to its own blog. My writing has a new residence too.

The Scrapbook consists of random things I find on the internet. I reblog innovative ideas, humor, and plain awesome art. I use the Scrapbook as a way to collect inspiration and ideas. Useful tags in the Scrapbook include:

+Reference includes tutorials, photos, and drawings that can be referred to when making art.
