finding books

whee! my computer is now updated and is a Tiger!!! woot! and i can actually see websites the way they are supposed to look, instead of all wonky which is what Explorer does on a Mac. i like Safari! can you tell I'm excited? :) so far... so good.... *knocks on wood*

in other news, I went to the Edmonton Journal Book Sale today, which was very fun. Really cheap books - hardcovers are $2 and softcovers are $1. It's still on on Sunday if you want to check it out.

You sure find some interesting books at these things. I found an archiac manual for Illustrator, which i thought was quite hilarious (yes I'm a big geek, if you can't already tell from my excitement over upgrading OS). There were some pretty good photo books tho, so I picked up a few of those. If I didn't already have all of the LOTR books, I could have picked up the whole trilogy for $3. Throw in the Hobbit for $4.

here's some of what I picked up.

"Green" by Benjamin Zucker - art/typography book

"The Practical Guide to Calligraphy"

"The Lions of Al-Rassan" by Guy Gavriel Kay - reading another book by this author right now, and am enjoying it so far, so thought I would pick this one up too.

"The Woodsman's Daughter" by Gwyn Hyman Rubio - an advance uncorrected proof version

"Lost Kingdoms of Maya" National Geographic - very nice big photo book

"Monographics" by Kyle Cooper - a neat little book on the design of film titles and credits (which I love)

"The Illustrated Man" by Ray Bradbury - very happy when I found this, I read a lot of Ray Bradbury in high school.

"Let Me Tell You a Story" by Tony Campolo - I like this guy's speaking, so I'll give one of his books a try.

and my new favorite title ever....

"The Professor and the Madman - A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary"
I just couldn't pass up that title.

banqueting table

Went to The Canopy on sunday morning, to check it out. The worship band did the song "Banner Over Me is Love" to the tune of "Kiss Me", I forget who the artist is for that song (Sixpence None the Richer?). It sounded pretty cool, although you wouldn't think so at first. I love the theme of this song, to me it says that everyone is welcome to "the table". God welcomes everyone, regardless of where they come from in their life.

His Banner Over Me
Kevin Prosch

He brought me to His banqueting table,
And His banner over me is love

I am my beloved's and He is mine,
And His banner over me is love
Yes, His banner over me is love

We can feel the love of God in this place
We believe Your goodness, we receive Your grace
We delight ourselves at Your table, oh God
You do all things well, just look at our lives

His banner over me
His banner over you
His banner over us
Is love

some stuff

Check out this dude's Lenten blog. Very cool. LentenBlog

pencil, inverted in photoshop

Discovered a quick way to draw a hand on my online travels.


Drew this a couple weeks ago. I like the drawing, but not the position of the legs. Lets just say, um, they are in an odd position. Time to whip out the vellum paper and do a quick change-up.
