Belated Thanksgiving (pie!) post and some warm-up art

This is a drawing I was warming up with the other day and then I put in some paint to screw around a bit before getting to work. Not much else that I've done that I can show here, so...on to some Thanksgiving pictures!

Laini and I hosted a smaller crowd than we have in recent years (my awesome mom, and my sister and her family weren't able to make it up this year, darnit) but we still made WAY too much food. Good thing we like left-overs (speaking of which, we polished those off tonight at dinner -- sigh...)

Here's a pic taken by Laini's mom at our dinner table:

Her sweet mom had gotten me this (highly recommended!) pie cookbook for my last birthday:

And here're a few pix of the pie-making process, including the (if I may say so myself!) impressive cross-section pic once we started cutting it!

Oh, and lastly, for those who've been following Laini's blog about how nature has been coming to attack us, here's the latest assault. That's right, murderous seagulls!
