Not mine infortunately, but I'm a big fan of the site Dreamhours. I hear photoshop isn't tht difficult once you get to know it, but still, I had a trial version some time ago and I didn't understand how to use it at all unfortunately :s

Looks like Baudelaire... Charles, is that you? Long time we have not seen, Edouard was asking abs-cheers.gif

Excellent work for finding him, Nurgle abs-cheers.gif

That's cool! The glass looks a little out of scale though.
Marc
No, I have an East glass that size.

Great site! It's a shame that the better digital artists won't get the same value appreciation as traditional artists. (Once the file is created, endless copies of the same work can be generated, unlike a print, where the plate is destroyed.) Though I imagine they can do well with licensing agreements!

I think that glass is properly Absomphesized.

By the way, I have to ask this because I've been slacking in the "pain in the ass" department lately: Why "Hail nearly-forgotten Greek goddess best remembered for her role in a cartoon"? Why not "Hail Adobe" or, better yet, "Hail John and Thomas Knoll"?

Hmmm, who's this other character?

Ah, I knew this question would come :) Basically, I'm continuously indulging myself in strange/weird/'different' literature, and next on my list will be the major oeuvre known as Principia Discordia, of wich Eris is the matron deity (see Wikipedia for more details). Soon to come: Carlton mellick III's Sausagy Santa & The Gospel of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

It's the greatest sausage-spewing, elf-raping, zombie-killing, Transformer-fucking, reindeer- exploding, snowman-battling, adventure-rocking, bizarro Christmas story OF ALL TIME!!!
Um, I need to get this.

This is fer sure. I have got it today, double-pack, two glasses, 330 ml each (what makes 55 ml of extrait if 1:5 ratio harhar.gif ) and 27,5 cm tall.

I am the owner of the same goblet as well but made of blue, the green for sure will make even the poor louche or pre-ban look more attractive.

The price for each was circa 10 euro but absinthist has got a 50% discount biggrin.gif . Both goblets are hand-made in Krosno, btw.

Cros+I use pint glasses.

I have used to use them, the spoon balances well on the rim, but it was in high school, I tend to be more au naturel and traditional to the core. And nowadays, I really do not drink so much; time has an impact upon, y'know abs-cheers.gif

Um, no...

Try The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, Julian Jaynes.

It's a lot more interesting than it sounds.
