Look like "snowflakes on window" to me.

actually it was generated by diesel spill on my Ferrari (tractor) garage floor, some chemical reaction with the floor creating salt crystal trees. I am not cheating with ice and snow, this is a new art form that dose not simply melt away!

Definitely something I grew up with. They were referred to as ice roses ("isroser"). The phrase "perfect fractal ferns" has a William Gibson ring to it. 
Thank you! :-D

Banksy is a speciest idiot. We didn't evolve from chimps, they are a separate genus.

Difference between humans and monkeys? You can't fool monkeys.

You have homi-no-idea what you're talking about! Monkeys are monkeys. Humans are apes. (That's why I called frolloos a baboon - that was a cladistically loaded offence.)

I know more about the Rock of Ages than the age of rocks.

An example for a drawing/painting today.
Sometimes I just draw freehand, but sometimes work from an existing print, painting, or photograph.
This is a small gift card - about 2x3 inches. I like this size and format very much.

k - do you drink Corona Light or Corona Extra? Or both!?

Lime in the bottle?

Here - a small bowl of mint cookie ice cream but that's it. : )

It's been a long time since I had that kind of beer, but I did like it with a lime.

If k is supposed to stand for katastofa, I rush to explain that im in a distinct geographical location from the said Corona beers, drinking red Italian vine replacement for the British one they didn't have in waitrose and saboreeing (that's spanglish, sorry) on artisan choklits from the local market, where my drinking companion found them earlier today/yesterday.

LOL.

Goodness, no, I did not mean those particular beers.  Hehe.

I just meant Corona in general.

I did drink it with a good friend back in our college days.  We also liked Sapporo and various other imports.

But good that you are out having a nice time in London, masks on or not.

People are not wearing them in the suburbs here and I was not in NYC this week so not sure about there.

On the subject of masks, I liked your cat mask on the pandemic thread.

For me, a peacock theme, I think, but only if no birds were harmed in the making of it.

Enjoy the night. Stats on coronavirus outside of China seem to suggest spread, but not fatality so far.

Of course NHS may find a way to screw that up...
