Haven't Got the Power
The only shot of Bosq, the snoring cat with the human nose, I was able to grab tonight for the Birds in Hats animatic.
Weird. I spent more time trying to locate, re-charge, or scavenge AA batteries to power my digital camera than to create illustrations tonight. All at once, all my rechargeables went flatly unrechargeable and my whole supply of regular batteries ran right out. I was reduced to scavenging any I could find in the house, even stooping so low as to bogart the two in the remote.
I noticed a DC input on the camera itself but couldn't find a matching adapter. All this in a camera with a busted battery cover closure anyway so either from this or that or the other, power ran out mid-snaps.
Meanwhile, I can give a visual update on how the Christmas card workshop is coming along...
A variety of scraps of festive papers made from cutting out various parts for our holiday cards this year. It has only begun.
