If you have vehicles with a large enough tread gap on the tyres (tires) then you'll find that individual stones will wedge themselves into the tread, thus being carried out onto the road surface when the vehicle leaves. I expect that over many years this has depleted your gravel coverage.how and to where does gravel go
Akira was the first anime I bought on vhs hell I didn't even know what anime was until I saw akira.Kanedas bike?
I remember Akira when it first came out; it blew my mind. I sat up all night with SOAS Zipango society watching it.
Later years I got a copy of the Manga...which is good but not mind blowing as there is more exposition and so you know what is going on
This sounds like a good way to design the pattern and composition. Also, I find that if I approach my oil painting with the mindset of "I am now going to paint with control and professional intent and CREATIVITY" I just really fuck it up. As in, I really mess it up!I dabble in water colour
I make studies and mock up sections for my embroideries, can't remember the last time I painted for it to be the end product,
My nephews bought me a communicator years ago (just dug it out, batteries still work). Press button and red light comes on and you get 5 seconds to record a message ('This is Captain Slog'). Then press other button and green light comes on with your message playback. Oh and there's a clip on the back so you can hang it from your belt.
Trev666 - Good observation. Yes, this has happened at other places over the years. But here, the driveway is paved concrete. I honestly can't imagine what happened to the gravel in the yard before we bought the place. Squirrels? Aliens? Tornadoes? Thunderbirds? Senior citizens with hidden gravel desires? We see nothing out of the ordinary, yet the gravel especially in one place got thinner and then disappeared in the past 2 years leaving a dirt patch. WTF. I shall ride shotgun over my new fancy gray gravel.If you have vehicles with a large enough tread gap on the tyres (tires) then you'll find that individual stones will wedge themselves into the tread, thus being carried out onto the road surface when the vehicle leaves.

What?!? Can this really happen? If so, that may be where all the gravel went. Thanks, Frideswide. We do have earth worms here, even in the desert. They all come out when it rains in the summer.If there is earth under the gravel then worm action will take it downwards fairly quickly

I paint with oils, and I'm insanely jealous of your manganese blue; I'm slightly obsessed with blues!Good guess, but no. It is PB33, manganese blue. Very saturated bright light blue with a hint of green. Maybe a ton left in the world. Easy to manufacture but not profitably. Do you oil paint? I do but not well.
It shows up on ebay, but rarely. If you are in the UK, then its available at Cornelison's. Also, the best hue which mimics this is Gamblin's (PB15.4). I am determined to not get hung up on using up my tiny amount. Preciousssssss.I paint with oils, and I'm insanely jealous of your manganese blue; I'm slightly obsessed with blues!

Ok. Thanks, Yithian and others. That model is amazing and a work of art in itself. If one was a fan of the manga film, that just adds to the attraction.It's a model/toy: https://www.amazon.com/Kanedas-Revival-Bandai-Spirits-Popynica/dp/B08S7KJQD6
I love Akira and if I had the spare cash I'd love one of these, too.
- Kaneda's bike from the global anime hit AKIRA is about to explode into collections worldwide!
- This renewed edition comes 11 years after the first release: an incredibly accurate, heavy weight, and highly detailed portrayal of this iconic high-tech motorcycle
- The front suspension, which is accentuated with chrome detailing, accurately flexes; pressing the accelerator pedal triggers an engine sound, while pressing the brake pedal triggers a tire-squealing effect
- You can even connect it to external speakers for immersive, high-quality audio playback!
