So I’ve decided to drain my 20 gallon high because I’m becoming less able to deal with the physical requirements of aquariums; mainly the enormous work pruning plants every week, gravel vacuuming after living poop machines (platies and BN plecos), and changing water. I have a Python system, but it drains so slowly in the sink that it’s still unfortunately easier to lug buckets for the draining portion.

SO. I turned that sucker up on one end and I’m making it into a crested gecko vivarium! I won’t give away my manufacturing secrets here, but needless to say there’s tons of tutorials for DIY 3 dimensional backdrops. I decided to go with a stone background because I happen to like it more; I’ll be stuffing nooks and crannies with moss when it comes time to plant the vivarium. The branches were a lucky driftwood find; the skull I already had. I’ve siliconed a 6 inch tall bottom glass piece to retain substrate in and as soon as it’s cured in 24 hours I’ll be gluing framing, the door, and screen into place.

Most people look at the word “disabled” and assume it means “less able.” It doesn’t. It means “prevented from functioning.” When I turn the wireless connection off on my computer, I get told that the connection has been “disabled.” Does this mean that my wifi has suddenly become less able or broken? Has my wifi acquired a disability? Of course not. It has been prevented from functioning by an external force. In a very similar way to how I’m disabled by bus drivers that just won’t stop if they see me — a wheelchair user — waiting at the bus stop.

I went to the Greenville Repticon and saw SO MANY BABIES. I’m mainly interested in albinos, pieds, and blue eyed leucistic a myself so that’s what all the photos deal with. I did get this little 2014 Mojave male for a steal though, I can’t believe I made out like such a bandit. The project for the rest of this year is to find a Lesser or Butter female to match to him.

RB TO WIN PENS!

I get asked all the time what pens I use and these are it! Super dooper £1 pens from the Works. As you can see I ink the crap out of my drawings and expensive pens run out so quickly. These are smooth, long lasting and such good value.

Most of my watchers are across the pond and don’t have The Works in your country so I’m giving away a free pack. I’ll pay for shipping and everything! I may even throw in a postcard too.

If you would like to win just Reblog and I’ll pick a winner on Sunday at random. I’ll message you directly and if you don’t want them I’ll just go onto the next person.

Thank you for supporting my work and good luck!

I love trying new pens, ink is the best. <3

I managed to break my glasses at work today. (https://twitter.com/tooies_nest/status/520268120087592960 that’s not blood in the picture, it’s paint. I didn’t notice it when i was taking the pic because I was too focused on my glasses ahahahaha..) I’m trying to get new glasses and while I’m currently having some difficulty because it’s been a few years since I’ve gotten my last eye exam and I don’t have insurance, it looks like it’s going to cost $300+ for new ones.

So, I’m opening for emergency commissions. I’m currently offering
$20 full body digital flats/$50 with a complex background$10 doodles$15 full body traditional sketches$30 traditional inks with a spot color
or if you want something else, please e-mail me at thetooiebird[at]gmail.com with any questions.

Glasses are a cruel expense when they pop up and NO ONE should have to walk around with taped/jury-rigged glasses. Consider giving Tooie a commission or a donation to fix this unfortunate happening. :[

I work at a nature center with a lot of snakes, including some good sized rattlesnakes that have really nice prominent scales in their sheds. I’ll start saving them and tell my coworkers to as well.

That would be AWESOME. And I am glad to sketch most anything for anyone, including your coworkers!

Calling for Snakeskin Sheds

So I have a special project I am working on; just one challenge. I need more snake skin sheds. I have a very teeny baby ball python and a heavy 5 foot female ball python of my own, but I would like to have a much greater variety of sheds to work with. I will accept literally ANY shed as long as it isn’t completely torn up. Both of my snakes roll their skins when they shed, but a short water soak and hang to dry makes them good as new.

I would be especially grateful if you can offer the sheds from very girthy snakes (Pretty much any large boid) , intact head sheds, and sheds from unusual animals (venomous snakes, keel-scaled species, etc).

What I can offer you is mainly sketches. Anyone willing to help me out please drop me a message or email!

Mixed media on 9x12 bristol; masking fluid, watercolor, colored pencil, pen, and liquid acrylic. I&#8217;ve been inspired lately by Fauxlacine&#8217;s gory work and decided to try my own hand at some good ol&#8217; fashioned guts and blood. It was a major series of lessons, but I&#8217;m REALLY going to enjoy adding liquid acrylics to my media. They work much better for me personally than the really thick textured stuff. Oil is still my favorite paint, but I don&#8217;t like how it yellows over a lifetime or the solvent-laden cleanup. I&#8217;m also interested in going back to horror as an art subject.

This. Sometimes we end up in therapy to learn how to deal with people who should be in therapy.

I bought this Spongebob pineapple to go in Joshua&#8217;s office aquarium. They didn&#8217;t have the other Bikini Bottom houses, so I made Patrick&#8217;s rock and Squidward&#8217;s moai. Coming soon might be the Krusty Krab&#8230;

What household pets do you have?

None. Zero. Zilch. I may occasionally name the dust bunnies out of sheer pet-desiring desperation. I cry myself to sleep for lack of animals in my home. I most certainly do not own a dog, three cats, two leopard geckos, two ball pythons, 24+ platyfish, nine corydoras, three bristlenose plecos, six female bettas and one male betta.
