My 40 Wholesome And Funny Comics Inspired By My Relationship With My Fianc

Wyatt & Blu is a webcomic about the cute and comical life of a colored-haired couple.

I started Wyatt & Blu because I was following a few webcomic artists before, and after a while, decided I wanted to make one myself.

And I used to write a lot for fun, so when I found out about webcomics, I figured this was a way to start again and do it regularly — so here I am. I write the comics, and partner with a wonderful illustrator to create the art.

The strips are largely inspired by my daily life, relationship with my fiancé and what’s generally happening in the world. The strips are light-hearted and have a mix of everyday humor, romance, and good vibes.

The goal of these comics is to make people laugh and to, generally, spread positive vibes. My hope is to inspire positivity with these comics. I think it’s the reason people enjoy these comics, and what continues to motivate me to make these strips!

I’ve put together a collection of 73 strips from the past year here.

Hope you enjoy!

I Threw Blankets And Leftover Christmas Decorations On My Friends And Family In A Series I Call Budget Renaissance

Recently I’ve been in love with old Renaissance and Dutch Master portraits. There’s something about that old-timey surreal style – soft lighting, random animals, longing stares into the distance — that I needed to try for myself.

I had no idea where to begin until I got a small battery-powered light wand for Christmas this year. My brother (pictured below) and I started playing around on Christmas morning, brainstorming in the dining room with a dark sheet clamped to a shelf on the wall for a backdrop. We started pulling ornaments off the Christmas tree, a garland from the kitchen, a blanket from the couch, and BAM! In 10 minutes we had traveled back 400 years.

It cracked us up. Seriously, we could not stop laughing at the ridiculousness of it. We started adding anything else we could find around the house, from babies and pets to candles and parents.

For the grand finale, I wanted to take a stab at recreating the Last Supper during a Friendsgiving potluck at my brother’s house a few days later. I think this one turned out to be one of my all-time favorite pictures and one that the baby (my niece) will definitely get a kick out of when she’s older. I call it First Supper.

I Spent Over 3 Years Traveling With My Cat In A Campervan

It’s been over 3 years since I left our hometown of Hobart, Tasmania, to travel around Australia. Although I sold my house and all my stuff, there was one thing that I just couldn’t leave behind.

My cat Willow.

The solution was simple. Road trip with my best friend!

Since May 2015 we have traveled over 70,000 km, seen forests, beaches, and deserts, and even took a boat out to the Great Barrier Reef together. Late last year we finally made it all the way around and even spent summer back in our hometown.

But the adventure wasn’t meant to end there – and we have no intention of stopping anytime soon. This year we spent 3 months passing through the outskirts of the Simpson Desert before making our way back to the beautiful East Coast.

Some people are surprised to find that I travel with my cat. Once a backpacker at a campsite even exclaimed “Excuse me, there is a cat trying to get into your van!” ..

I know.

Our home is our camper van, a tiny house on wheels. I built it myself with a bed, cupboards, a kitchen, and plenty of places for a little cat to hide! It might be small but the whole Australia is our backyard.

It’s always a joy watching Willow explore the places we visit. She wears a tracking collar so that I always know where she is.

We post our photos on Instagram and it’s so nice to hear from people all over the world that they are following our adventure.

It wasn’t easy leaving my old job and life behind but I knew I had to make some changes for my own well-being. It was a slow process but now I am happier.

I work a little bit where I can, invest my savings, and it’s enough to keep us going.

If Willow has taught me anything, it’s that you don’t need a lot to be happy. A bit of food, shelter, and a whole lot of love. And that if she doesn’t get enough pats each day you can guarantee that her demands will be made at 3am!

We have made the 2019 calendar and we are using it to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (ALS) research. It’s available on our website. Last year we raised over $3000 AUD.

I’m lucky. I get to see Australia through the eyes of a cat, and that I will treasure for a lifetime.

We have been travelling for 3.5 years now but every day is special

This year we spent 3 months in the desert and I was so happy to make it back to the beach! I’m not sure what Willow thought

Our camper van is our home. A tiny house on wheels with a bed, cupboards, a kitchen, and even a TV!

Last summer we returned to our home state of Tasmania and visited all my favorite places

Willow even got to meet her cousins!

She loves to explore but she never strays to far. She wears a tracking collar to keep her safe

Out in the desert there are lots of abandoned places to camp. This place was actually an old movie set

Willow’s favorite place to sit is on the dashboard where she has a great view

The front bull bar is a great place to look out over the sun set

Willow loves to follow me around but she doesn’t like to go too far from our van

We might be all alone but we always have each other and the whole Australia to explore

Happiness is spending an afternoon with your cat

This Is How 6 Castles Across The UK Looked Before Falling Into Disrepair

There is something wonderful about visiting castles.

As you walk through the ruins, your imagination begins to fill in the blanks about the people who lived there, the history of the place and the architectural details that have been lost. But what if you didn’t need to use your imagination? Luckily, the digital age has given us the tools to recreate the complete picture by rebuilding these incredible castles without any heavy lifting. And that’s what On Stride Financial has done with these mind-blowing reconstructions.

With the help of an architect (and a dose of technology), they’ve brought back to life 6 spectacular castles across the United Kingdom – from Bothwell Castle in Scotland to Kidwelly Castle in Wales.

So jump on a journey back in time to see what has been relentlessly destroyed by time, and by people.

1. Dunluce Castle (County Antrim, Northern Ireland)

Dunluce has one of the most dramatic histories of any UK castle. Built around 1500, it was abandoned as early as 1639. The castle’s kitchen – and kitchen staff – had collapsed over the cliff edge and into the sea as the 2nd Earl of Antrim’s family sat waiting for their dinner.

Two years later, the small town that developed around the castle was razed by the Scots and abandoned. It has now become a valuable archaeological site and the historic footprint of this short-lived settlement is a haunting destination for visitors to the northern tip of Northern Ireland.

2. Dunstanburgh Castle (Northumberland, England)

Image credits: onstride

Image credits: onstride

King Edward II’s most powerful baron, Earl Thomas of Lancaster, built this enormous castle as a show of might when relations soured between the two men. However, the earl was captured and executed before he could enjoy his epic crib.

The castle fell into disrepair after sustaining damage as a battle hotspot during the Wars of the Roses. Today, a walk along the Northumberland Coast in view of Dunstanburgh’s ruins offers a melancholy but awe-inspiring day out.

3. Bothwell Castle (South Lanarkshire, Scotland)

Image credits: onstride

This thirteenth-century castle saw a lot of action through Scotland’s Wars of Independence. It repeatedly swapped hands between the Scots and the English in the wake of fierce battles.

Architecturally, Bothwell is notable for its “cylindrical donjon” (a fortified refuge for the castle’s inhabitants), which was ruined in a series of sieges. Visit on Halloween and you may encounter the ghost of Bonnie Jean, a noblewoman who drowned crossing the River Clyde to elope with her lover.

4. Goodrich Castle (Herefordshire, England)

Image credits: onstride

Goodrich was begun in 1102, and strengthened later that century by the fantastically named Godric Mappestone (from whom the castle probably took its name). It wasn’t until the Civil Wars of 1642-6 that the stronghold would sustain serious damage. Cromwell’s army pelted it with 200-pound balls from Roaring Meg, a cannon built specifically for the purpose.

After the war, the ruined castle was partially dismantled and then abandoned. Thankfully, they’ve since installed a tearoom so visitors can recharge after enjoying the historical exhibits and spectacular views from the parapets.

5. Caerlaverock Castle (Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland)

Image credits: onstride

Image credits: onstride

The UK’s only triangular castle has a triple history: built in the 1280s, it was partially dismantled in the 14th century on the word of Sir Robert Bruce, to prevent it falling into English hands. Once rebuilt, it was again taken apart after being besieged by the Earl of Sussex in 1570. Again rebuilt, a thirteen-week siege during the Bishops War resulted in one last dismantlement; and that is how the castle is to be found today.

But the ruins are awesome. Caerlaverock’s moat, twin-towered gatehouse and lofty battlements are supplemented by an exhibition honouring the castle’s turbulent history.

Image credits: onstride

6. Kidwelly Castle (Dyfed, Wales)

Image credits: onstride

Image credits: onstride

Kidwelly was initially built as a wooden structure as the Normans entered southwest Wales, around 1106. Major stone fortification was added in the final decade of the 1300s, just in time to withstand a five-month siege at the outbreak of the Owain Glyn Dwr rebellion.

The following years of peace diverted the focus to residential building and the grandeur of Kidwelly’s military fortress was allowed to fade. This means that although it’s considered a ruin, Kidwelly is actually one of the best preserved and most awe-inspiring castles in Wales today. Catch a view of it in the morning mist to truly feel you’ve been transported through time.

I Challenged Myself To Make 100 Clay Creatures As A Part Of 100 Day Project, And Heres The Result So Far

My name is Marta and I have a dream to be the best at sculpting with plasticine.

I remember when I was a child I would make little clay animals and place them around the kitchen. I have always loved surrounding myself with tiny figurines – I really liked feeling the comfort of their presence. There is something very magical about creating three dimensional pieces, I sometimes think they might come alive when I am asleep.

I have recently challenged myself to make 100 clay creatures as a part of 100 day project. You can follow my adventures on Instagram.

Our Dog Was Getting A Human Sister, So I Built Her A Room Under The Stairs It Turned Out Better Than Expected

Molly the Westie found out she was going to be a big sister to a little human so I decided to build her a room of her own under the stairs before the baby arrived.

Nothing existed there before, it was walled-in. I wasn’t sure how big the space was, or if it would even be possible, so was very happy with the end result… as was Molly!

We are currently doing well in the myBuilder ‘Project of the Year 2017’ competition and you can vote for me here if you like it!

Molly in her new, finished room

She is the best wee dog who had been very spoiled up to this point, so we didn’t want her to feel less important when the baby arrived!

And here is the proud big sister with baby Catelyn!

Starting point… I thought there might be dead space behind the stairs, but wasn’t sure. Trying to sneak a look

If it was going to work I also needed to move the wiring for the house alarm system. Decided to update the kitchen at the same time, by adding tongue & groove panels

Space cut out… I can now see what space we have to play with

Bigger than I thought, around 4 square metres

Most importantly… don’t want Molly to be scared of the space, so in for an early look. Definitely going to be big enough!

Door frame fitted in keeping with the internal joinery, base of frame kept in place as integral to support staircase

Plasterboard fitted, starting to look like a room

In for a sniff and helping with the plastering/sealing

Feature wallpaper gives an idea of what’s coming next

View from inside the room

Colour changing mood lighting installed

Molly waiting patiently as I had to finish the tongue and groove outside her room first

Flooring goes down

And skirtings for the awkwardly shaped walls!

Custom signs

Molly still waiting patiently, has taken the new couch in the meantime

So I bought her one for her new room

Finishing touches, photo frames and luxury bed

Pictures of Molly at school with her friends

All moved in, proud as punch!

Posing in her new space

Loves the cosy corner

Finishing touches with her sign and peronalised leash/harness hook

Luckily she likes her new home better than the one in the garden!

This House Takes 6 Hours To Build And Costs Just $33K

In a time when real estate prices are going through the roof, Italian Renato Vidal has created a brilliant alternative to traditional housing. The M.A.Di. is a flat pack folding home that costs only $33K and three people can assemble it in any flat location in about 6 hours.

The building is certified as seismically safe and created with high-quality material. It comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from a 290-square-foot home for $33K to a 904-square-foot design for $73K. All basic models include a bathroom with sanitary facilities, kitchen connections, one stage staircase and technical installations.

Once on site, M.A.Di. can even be constructed without a concrete foundation. The structures can be assembled to go completely off-grid with the addition of solar panels, grey water systems, and LED lighting. “It creates cosy and safe places highly customizable according to your needs,” its website writes. Delivery time takes up to 60 days after the acceptance of the final drawings.

M.A.Di. looks like an ordinary house, but everything underneath the exterior is the complete opposite of “simple”

It is a flat pack folding home that costs only $33K and three people can assemble it in any flat location in about 6 hours

The home doesn’t have to be built on a concrete foundation, allowing the structure to have zero impact on the environment

Here’s a time-lapse of its assembly

And this is how the structure looks when completed

The interior has a sleek and modern open-plan style

And the 290-square-foot home can be customized to grow to a 904-square-foot design

Architect Turns Old Cement Factory Into His Home, And The Interior Will Take Your Breath Away

When Ricardo Bofill stumbled upon a dilapidated cement factory in 1973, he immediately saw a world of possibilities. La fábrica was born, and almost 45 years later, the structure has been completely transformed into a spectacular and unique home.

The factory, located just outside of Barcelona, was a WWI-era pollution machine that had closed down, and came with many repairs to be done when Ricardo Bofill and his team purchased it. After years of partial deconstruction, the determined architect proceeded to lace the exterior of the property with vegetation, and furnish the interior as a modern living and work space.

La fábrica is a work in progress to this day, to which Bofill likens his own life, as his visions for the future continue to change shape. The industrial chimneys that once filled the air with smoke now overflow with lush greenery, a fine example of the beautiful transformations that result from creative thinking.

In 1973, Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill purchased a WWI-era cement factory near Barcelona

He immediately saw potential in the building, and began renovating it into his home

After years of partial deconstruction, his team proceeded to furnish the interior as a modern living space

The exterior was laced with vegetation, and now overflows with lush greenery

The structure has been completely transformed into a spectacular and unique home

“The Cement Factory is a place of work par excellence” Bofill writes on his official website

Each room is designed with its own special purpose, and no 2 look quite alike

“I have the impression of living… in a closed universe which protects me from the outside and everyday life” Bofill writes

“Life goes on here in a continuous sequence, with very little difference between work and leisure”

A variety of indoor and outdoor relaxation spots can be found throughout the property

Work space is also a crucial component here, as Bofill’s team uses part of the residence as a studio

The exterior is mostly covered by grass, but also eucalyptus, palm, and olive trees

This gives the building a “mysterious aspect of romantic ruin that makes it unique and unrepeatable”

“The kitchen-dining room located in the ground floor is the meeting point for the family”

Despite its incredible transformation, the factory is still a work in progress to this day

Bufill likens the project’s constant evolution to his own lifestyle and creative visions

La fábrica will always have further work to be done, which is part of its symbolic charm

With enough creative thinking, any space can become something new and beautiful
