OK, as you may or may not know I'm off to San Fran in October. My bloke and me are going to hire a car and drive to LA and we want to stop off somewhere on the way. Now the question is, is Pismo Beach a lovely place to stop? We were looking for somewhere roughly half way where we could stop in a motel and chill. We don't fancy an 8 hour drive in one go! biggrin.gif

Also I am still tossing around ideas for a new tattoo on my back. Dragon style smile.gif

Hell no sad.gif I didn't say I wanted a big one tongue.gif I'd like a dragon with it's wings outstretched, tribal, stylistic pattern incorporating those types of wings, S shaped body stretching down and no bigger than about 2/3 inches tall by 2 wide. I'd have it between my shoulder blades. Ed is going to have a go at designing something but I'm open to other designs wink.gif

Here's a rough idea of the thing I'm looking for but it needs wings that stretch out behind it slightly more and a bit smaller and less detailed.

I like Celtic designs. You can get some really nice delicate ones. You should visit a tattoo parlour and have a look. They don't bit laugh.gif

Yeah. I can't really have that design any smaller otherwise it gets too fiddly apparently. That design would need to be twice the size I actually want it. I'm hoping I'll get something like that but less detailed with more outstretched wings. If that makes sense unsure.gif

Yep, I'm still not used to it at all but it does make some things faster, zoom in, draw stuff, zoom out and it looks good! I used the last design as a guide template put a layer over it in Flash and drew my version. It's a little ropey but a print out with a biro and tip-ex would sort it out in about five minutes!

Well I'm impressed.
Is the tablet something along the lines of pencil and a touch sensitive pad? We have those at work for CAD.

WOW!

That's wicked!!! biggrin.gif

I'll print that off and show my bloke. It's almost spot on *ducks as Mata swings large object*. I think it might need to be a tad smaller and therefore less detailed. I'd love a big tattoo but I don't think my Mum would be too impressed rolleyes.gif besides, it'd take more than 30 minutes to do that and I don't think I can last that long in a tattoo parlour!!!! laugh.gif

Thanks Mata! I can't tell you how much I appreciate you spending your limited time on this! Mwah!! smile.gif

It's still better than I could have done! I've printed it out to show my bloke as he is a rather good artist and I thought he'd be impressed.

Thanks again Mata biggrin.gif

If only you could actually do tattoos happy.gif

WeeJ: Yep, they use them fo CAD most of the time.

Pixieg: You're welcome, I figured it'd be easier for you to talk to your tattooist if you could show him/her what you were after.

I recommend The Sacred Rose in San Francisco, they're very highly skilled people in there.

I've thought about putting together some tattoo flash art... I really should get around to that one day *adds it to list of stuff to do*. Don't worry I won't use this one! I'd never want you to see someone else with the same design as you!

I only got the graphics tablet a few weeks ago with the money from t-shirts. I was waiting for it before I started the lastest animation because I figured it would speed up the whole process... It did but it's taking me a while to get used to it too!

Oh yeah I know. I was there last September with my Mum. We did a stop over on the way back from Maui for my cousin's wedding. I ROCKED!! We only got 1 day there and all I wanted to do was see the bleedin' bridge and it was bloody foggy mad.gif I've got a great photo of me stood at the bottom of the bridge looking well miffed!! laugh.gif

I am going back for longer this time and just wanted to know whether is anything, off the beaten track, that we really shouldn't miss. My bloke is going to the skate parks and the cartoon art museums (as well as me obviously) and I fancy getting a tattoo done (hence the earlier stuff from Mata).

Can you make any good recommendations?

That would be cool! Thanks smile.gif We are looking at places like Pismo and Grover beach at present but if you can suggest other nice places that'd be excellent.

The modern art gallery is good, and I hear the tour of Alcatraz is very interesting too.

Don't bother with Pier 23, it's just a tourist trap with nothing really of interest.

China town is lovely, especially if you like obscure oriental tat like I do! ('Tat' being slang for... Umm... 'Desirable junk' I think would be close in case you don't have that word in the US)

Apparently there is a cartoon art gallery too (might have mentioned that before smile.gif). Ed is really into comic art (as am I) so we'll probably pay that a visit. We are planning to book our Alcatraz tickets soon too so we can guarantee that. I hear a boat trip around the bay is nice too?

Never heard if Pier 23 but I have been down to Fishermans Wharf before which was also nothing special.

Our hotel is right near Union Square (The Touchstone) just off Mason. I imagine we'll be using public transport as I understand it's quite good. I'm a bit daunted by the bus system but the tram one is similar to Sheffield. 3 main lines! smile.gif

Tat is good laugh.gif Shall be getting tat.....in more than 1 way! *realisation dawns*

I recommend the Exploritorium. It's a museum with a bunch of scientific stuff. A lot of it is interactive and it's fun. Of course the last time I was there I was like 10 and my aunt and uncle took me there.

I went to this cool museum right near a golf course with Shuilong and Moonlightsavingstime a couple weeks ago, maybe a month ago but I can't remember what its called. Maybe try PMing Moonlight, cause she did all the research on our excursion and see if she'll give you a little help with research.

Dude it's shower time already. GAH I swear I had more to say.
