Jim, formerly of Jim’s Stuff, started the “Pic a Day in May” challenge three years ago. I’ve done it each year, and will continue since that’s all I pretty much post these days. The only other blogger that I’m aware of who is also doing this is Blobby of Blobby’s Blog.

My 73rd “12 of 12”. Thankfully.


9:47 AM: It’s cold. And we’ve still got a little frozen precipitation on the ground.
12:16 PM: I’m unofficially in the studio since my health scare, but I’m only doing the smaller appointments I have scheduled.
1:13 PM: One of today’s tattoos.
1:58 PM: Sometimes I have to leave hate notes for the salon staff, as we share a common area.
3:08 PM: Simple lunch,. A little more protein than I’m supposed to have though.
3:44 PM: I was supposed to do this portrait of my bestest buddy Patrick’s dad on Tuesday, but I was in the hospital. Sadly, his dad passed away yesterday and won’t get to see it.
4:58 PM: Another small tattoo from today.
8:46 PM: The fauna resting on me. I’m not sure who’s providing warmth to who.
9:29 PM: Watching Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. I’ve read both the books, and I like the way the story is going so far in the show.
10:30 PM: Those aren’t teeth marks. Still got the glue on me from those damn sticky things they stuck all over me.

I’m two photos short. I’ve been tired since the hospital incident. I’m slowly recovering.

Until next time...
Erik

  1. Nail polish remover (make sure it is the kind that contains acetone) makes a great adhesive remover. If you have sensitive skin you should consider diluting it with water (1:2 or 1:3). WARNING: this will sting broken skin. Be sure to gently wash the area with soap and water afterwards, then apply lotion of your choice.

    Speaking of lotion, depending on its ingredients (usually, the greasier the better), that can also work.

    Cooking oils (olive, canola, corn, etc.) may work, as well.

    I’ve also heard of people having good luck by first getting the area very wet with hot water (such as in the shower) and then using Dawn (or any brand labelled as “fighting” or “being tough on” grease) dishwashing detergent.

    Hope your health continues to improve!
