Icky Fingers and Janathon, Day 6

This is my last piece in Stephanie's Moleskine for the Exchange group, so I will be sending it to Ammon as soon as I can get it together, hopefully tomorrow or Monday,  It is done in 005 Micron pen black.  Also a little splash of black gouache.  The green bit on the mouth is from a dirty scanner, sorry.

Icky Fingers
Micron Pen
1st half of a collaboration with Ammon
It's my husband, Biker Buddy (Keith), in case you don't recognize him, working on my son Graham's car.  However, Ammon could make it into something else and that would be OK.  I'll be interested to see what he does with it.

As far as Janathon goes, I did all my exercises and walked 3 laps of 16:23, 15:16 and 17:37.  I think I am mildly depressed.  I really did NOT want to walk today.  Normally walking is one of my favorite things to do.  I had to drag myself out.  I am not sure I got the times exactly right, but they were something like that.  The first one is right because I remember thinking I got the exact same time yesterday on that lap.  My Psion has died so I can't keep track as easily.

Also today was a day for thank you notes received:

one from Mubin with lovely art (by her) and enclosures:

I have to get going on my thank you notes!!!
