Anyone have any hobbies/creative activities?

I wonder does anyone do anything on here in general for fun and would like to share? I haven't seen any posts about that.

As for me I make comics on the side of my actual work:

And amateur digital music:

Those are WONDERFUL! The Welcome Back comics made me smile. :) I've never been a big fan of ambient music but I really enjoyed some of your music tracks and I tried to "like" them but it wanted me to sign up in order to do it. (I avoid signing up for anything unless I absolutely need it.)

My hobbies are mostly involved with birds or other nature-related things.

Up until recently, I've earned a living as a bird taxidermist. (Enter at your own risk if dead things bother you.)
Greybird's Gallery of Death
I'm retired now, but there are still a few special projects waiting in my freezer for when/if I find the time to work on them.

Nowadays, I raise silkie chickens

and heritage turkeys.

On rare occasions I will still do a bit of drawing or painting.

Lately it seems that most of my creative energy has been directed toward amateur carpentry and other home-improvement types of endeavors.
This is the most ambitious one, I think, and I have almost got it done. (The roof was finished after I took this photo.)

Carpentry wears me out because it's HARD (for me) and I'm having to figure it out as I go, but I hope to get the building projects on my list done eventually so that I can get back to things that are artistic rather than back-breaking.

Majority of the ambient music is my old work because it's the easiest to make haha... nowadays I actually know how to write music and not throwing a reverb on everything.

Wow you're a pretty good taxidermist. Most taxidermists I see are hobbyists and their animals usually look more dead than alive. And love your art. Glad to see you paint, I used to paint a while ago, but I guess becoming a digital artist/animator those days are kinda gone.

Also your silkies are adorable.

Haven't uploaded anything in awhile, but I do have a youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/bartsimpson83

Also, I'm currently collaborating on a script for what I hope will be my first animated feature, an original story I came up with revolving around a preteen transgirl (who the audience wouldn't know was trans until midway through the plot when a bully outs her to the whole school).
