Incredibly Slow.

September 23rd, 2014 by ducky

I’m not exactly sure why but my internet service provider is making it almost impossible for me to visit and edit my own site.

Everything is painstakingly slow and sometimes moon-gem.com is entirely inaccessible to me…on my computer.

Unfortunately, my internet service provider is the only “high-speed” option in my area. So, I’m not entirely sure what to do other than to apologize.

The weird part is that I don’t seem to having the same problem with other sites. Just my own.

I went to the Quarry Hill Winery in Berlin Heights! Since I almost never travel I thought I would post some photos.

They aren’t the best photos as I was a little embarrassed to be taking them.

I’d like to go back, take some better photos, and visit the apple orchard down the hill someday.

Whisper in the Wall

I started (and stopped) working on this image months (maybe years) ago. The idea was to self publish a children’s book. Then I looked into it and realized it was just impractical. Nothing I make really sells so I just couldn’t fathom going through with it. I only ever worked on the cover and a another page. It was more like a short graphic novel…

Even though the cover isn’t really finished or up to snuff I really liked some of the details, like the lamp light on the wall, the peeling wallpaper, and the picture hanging in on the wall. I tried to make the hall seemed curved eerie and unnatural…

I even found the sketch I made when I was doodling up ideas!
