Farewell Borders

Today was the last day I spent my afternoon at a Borders. I've spent many hours of my life at this store, particularly during my college days when I was stuck on campus with gaps between my schedules. When I was not purchasing books, I was sitting at the cafe studying and eating either a cream cheese pretzel, a slice of lemon loaf cake, or a blueberry scone with a cup of hot or iced chai latte (depending on the season). Very fond memories I will have of this store and I will miss it dearly. Goodbye Borders, Barnes and Noble will never be able to replace you completely with your non-snotty workers and your weekly coupons without an annual $25 membership fee. Just like I mourned the loss of Papyrus near campus, I will mourn the loss of you even more. You were my bookstore version of Target.

My last Borders purchase

The Plastic Surgery Of Digital Art

I decided to redraw Hawke in his wolf form for my Kiss of Snow review. The original was too brown and gray for my liking so I decided to redo it to make him look more golden. Too bad during the time that I drew the original I wasn't "layering" so I had to erase the original wolf and a third of the background before putting in the new one. It would have been much easier if I initially had the wolf and background done separately so that I could have just swapped the wolves out and be done with it. Oh well, lesson learned.

Sunday, Monday, Happy Days!

 The Usual Suspects by Justin Hillgrove
Another print I need to buy a frame for. This is the only recent print that I own that's not signed by the artist :(

¡Buenos dias!

I hope no one ended up in the slammer this weekend like the shady characters above. If you did, all I have to say is, "Please, do tell."  

Well, I just wanted to remind everyone I won't be posting much after this week since I'll be out of town. Sadly, I won't be posting much this week if at all since I'll be too busy packing and meeting up with old friends before I go. I'm not sure if it matters to you, but that means no reviews of any kind.

Before I sign off, I'll like to remind you to don't forget to sign up for my giveaways here and here. They both end this Friday, August 5th.

That's it for now, have a wonderful week and for those heading back to school soon, good luck with classes!

A surprise inside every paper or plastic!

Goodbye Borders! I'm pretty sure we'll see one another once more before we truly go our separate ways :(
