So I am sitting in the living room, computer and desk crunched up against the rest of the furniture, which is wrapped in plastic, as we just finished the first coat of new paint! Trying to pull this concept of mine out of the greasy soup it seems to be mired in.
Hah, cage life!

Wow Dawn I was not expecting that, well done on the use of the flames and the concept. This is shaping up to be a fun cage!

OK sorry Dawn, I am going to load it up tonight, I got sooooo much to do in the next few days! All the photos are stock, or mine from a Canucks game last year.

What a change ... I love the twists the cage battles take, every blow is a surprise. Love the blue theme to this one! Have fun painting your house!

Hey thanks guys, and colour is a sort of creamy biege, it is going over a darker sort of light brown adobe. Our son got a whole new room as well, just finished, new bed, paint, new furniture.
Phew, Mother in Law is going to be here in a few weeks from the UK, so the place has to look good!

Awesome blows so far on both sides. I'm curious to see what you'll come up with Dawn! Love the one with the clown!
@bomi: This last blow inspired by the Canucks is my favorite. Really cool one! Guess you'll be busy this afternoon watching the game...

Time is a ticking ... just heads up Steve is away at the moment so if a battle DQ's it may take a little while longer then usual to re-instate.
But Im sure Dawn has it all under control

I'm going to stick my neck out here and say that I think the re-instating of DQ'd battles is one of the things that has bogged down the cage in recent years and made it a lot less exciting. Some battles have taken months. I appreciate that good designers are busy, but surely part of the romance of the cage is working within the constraints. A good battle is a fast battle.

lol you guys! ye of little faith! In all of my time here, I have NEVER DQed, tyvm. I'm going with my full three days I am allotted, I already made it very clear w/my daredevil partner. Even if I can't spend 3 full days on my image (and it shows - like, unfortunately this one is pretty pushed for time ) I will NOT DQ unless something out of my control - like no electricity or iS malfunction.
(and Christina, I totally agree with you, just to clarify )

Holy h*ck busters.

Well my canucks tribute didn't work, boo hoo!
Hour and a half, looking forward to your response Dawn!

all right, not my best work ever but it was still fun for me outside of searching for the right leather jacket...lol! Indiana Jones bobble-head style Sorry about your team, Andy! I'm just now realizing we missed the final NBA game last night. at least our team of choice won (we don't participate in regular season, just the finals - kind of like Superbowl )

Nice work Dawn. the jacket has worked well

..sorry about the nucks bomadics but i loved the hockey blow.
tim was just too solid this year... and boston had some lucky goals.
Posted Thu Jun 16, 2011 12:25PM
Yea, bummer about the team, not a big deal I am a playoff only watcher!
Shame about the hijinks in Vancouver though, gave all us in BC a black eye!
And that Tim goalie dude, wow what a player! Did you know he is 37 and started his hockey career at 30!?
We'll get it next year, we have the team, they just need to want it more.
