My name is Alex i live in Miles city Montana i dont do much, i mainly drift and work on cars with my dad and brother
I thought I’d share some in progress work. This full front is slowly starting to take form.
This was so much fun. Covered an old tattoo above the tiger there which I guess might be obvious. Still this was a blast to do and a more devoted customer is hard to find. We’ve done close to one short session a week since we started this except for over the holidays.
A pace, walk; a faint judgement.
A hushed step, she moves as if lost in a battle ground
Though these floors and monuments won’t creak -
A silent, forlorn warzone that for loneliness ever seeks.
Often the window, looked out upon the street, often it seemed
The greatest motion toward Love’s devotion -
How fair she dreamed she’d be, but brown her hair;
And mauve and burnt its curls, as the wood of a violin.
A saintly sweet, with trepidation and mournful feeling:
She longs, longs, dreams and is ruined.

Sunflowers Inspire Solar Efficiency
Researchers at MIT, in collaboration with RWTH Aachen University in Germany, have come up with a design that reduces the amount of land required to build a CSP (solar power) plant, while increasing the amount of sunlight its mirrors collect. The researchers found that by rearranging the mirrors, or heliostats, in a pattern similar to the spirals on the face of a sunflower, they could reduce the pattern’s ‘footprint’ by 20 percent and increase its potential energy generation. The sunflower-inspired pattern allows for a more compact layout, and minimizes heliostat shading and blocking by neighboring mirrors.

Little Planet Lovejoy
by Alex Cherney
Once a bright apparition in the southern hemisphere dawn Comet Lovejoy is fading, but its long tail still stretches across skies near the south celestial pole. Captured on the morning of December 30th, the comet appears near edge of this little planet as well.
Of course, the little planet is actually planet Earth and the image was created from a 12 frame mosaic used to construct a spherical panorama. The type of stereographic projection used to map the image pixels is centered directly below the camera and is known as the little planet projection.
Stars surrounding this little planet were above the photographer’s cloudy horizon near the Bay of Islands on the Great Ocean Road in southern Victoria, Australia. Running alongside the Milky Way the comet can be identified, with other celestial highlights. Very bright stars Canopus and Sirius are right of the little planet.
