One of these days I'm going to just go on a multi page rant of all my peeves. Multi multi page rant.

but not today my child.

not today.


obviously not done.

New Jersey was beautiful, the grass was green, the sky was blue, and the trees and ground were all crawling with tent caterpillars.

Those little bastards were EVERYWHERE.

You could not walk without either stepping one one, or having one fall on you.


luckily I find them adorable (for the most part) although the actual tent HIVES are pretty goddamn disgusting. Large silken blobs of caterpillar shit and writhing squishy body masses.

Poke one with a stick and the whole bottom ruptures, releasing what can only be described as the innards of a pinata from HELL.


Also I played magic the gathering with travis. Kinda ( alot).

good times.

I also have a shitton of work to do for my liberal art classes all of a sudden.

To be honest it's kinda interesting stuff, but I do feel a natural resistance to investing any large amount of time into essays.

Still, I guess I might as well? We'll see how that turns out.


drawings! (as usual not finished! Aaay!)

well, going to be off to new jersey tomorrow to celebrate both my brother's and my father's birthdays (my family has no qualms with celebrating things weeks, months, sometimes almost a year after the thing has actually happened.)

But, before I run off I guess I should give a (very) quick recap of some of the more enjoyable events of the last week? I mean, that's what a blog is for right?

... that and feeling like you're talking to yourself.

But anyways, considering that many of the people I know and involve myself with have gone home it's been surprisingly social.

There's been a few parties, a few long overdue reunions, a few goodbye hangouts, and quite a bit of reminiscing.

Enjoyed a party with david and renee (for david), got to see sofia again for the first time in ages, went to a party with alex that vera was hosting, went to a murikami exhibit with david and discussed japans various eccentricities, went to a dog pound with alex, and saw a reading of my dad's with veronica and her friend, and ran into zoe (another friend I hadn't seen in agesĖ†2), and I'm sure did other things that I'm currently forgetting about... ... durr...

The problem that I always find (in my mind) is that whenever I find myself being social I inevitably also find myself feeling guilty.

It doesn't matter where the guilt comes from, in this particular instance it's that I'm not drawing enough, but I still can't figure out if it's actually warranted or if it's all in my mind.

For now I'm willing to say it's mostly in my mind, as I am drawing a decent amount everyday, although I feel in another week or so I should shut the blast doors for a bit and just draw until I start laughing or weeping uncontrollably.

whichever comes first.

anyways, um. I'll do a big drawing soon, but for now here's a few more experiments and sketches.

more substantial post when I have energies...

Life is going well, but really, it's time to turn my ideas, sketches, and drawings into a story.

I mean, a social life is great and all, but competing against giant robots, omnipotent assholes, and the human mind corrupted and given flesh?

The choice is obvious.

well it's uh, kind of been awhile.

A shit ton of things have happened.


But, you know, time has passed, so there's not really any point in talking about them amirite?

That being said, the webcomic idea I have is maturing nicely inside of my skull, and soon I should be able to dedicate those ideas to paper, and, um, screen, so that makes me fairly happy.

Had a good time at Tay's birthday party the other day with him and Renee, and it sort of reminded me of all the people I know that I never seem to remember to get in touch with.

Which is a terrible thing, because I sort of know alot of awesome people.

... can't say the fact that I realized that is going to change anything, but at least the idea is bobbing around inside my skull now.


anyways, I'm just going to throw up a bunch of pictures now.


most of them are sort of experimental, and a few are character designs, none are completed pieces.

well, school is pretty much done, survey went well, and I'm predictably sick as a dog.

I don't mind being sick since I managed to bulldoze my way through the final few weeks to great effect while treating my body pretty terribly, so I figure throwing up a few times is just my body telling me to treat it better in the future.

(don't know if I can promise that. oh well.)

Anyways, I'm going to start a webcomic over the summer. Good practice, good times, and good robotic exo skeleton will extension mind battles.

So I'm just going to throw up a few finished pieces from survey, draw a picture for tee, and get to work on that.

Also, be prepared for more frequent updates.
