Record Store


So I'm back! I think! My scanner sort of started working again and then I used the magic of a hot glue gun to "fix" the rest. So, yeah. Every Friday, again, there will be a thing up! Thanks to a few people (mostly Imogen), I've slowly been learning more about the internet (and HTML! That makes me feel smart...), and how to do little "easy" things that make life a lot easier. Things like saving for the web, uploading a smaller file, using photoshop better, and linking things quicker and more accurately. So life's getting better, I suppose. Images should start loading up faster now, too.

Oh! Hey! Also, Imogen and I started an online comic! She does all the writing, and I do all the drawing. It's called Stupid Babies, and you can find us at There will be a new strip every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! That's a lot. A lot of my goal in this project to to draw them quickly, sort of loosening up my style, or at least producing something that won't totally bother me if the drawings aren't exactly what I want (and they never will be). I My goal is to draw each strip in half an hour, but I allow myself up to 45 minutes. With that speed (that's coming up with the panels, penciling and then inking), I have to basically let it go, and accept what comes out. It's pretty much the opposite of everything I've ever done before. Okay, back to drawing!

Not a good day.

So early this morning Dumpling (my dog) totally chewed up my sketchbook with about 4 months of work in it, along with the piece I was going to post up today. It was horrible, I'm still really upset, I'm going to stop talking about it.

For the last hour or so, as I've been attempting to scan in an older drawing of mine (just to have something up), I'm discovering that my scanner has pretty much quit working again and might be broken for real this time.

It looks like I'm pretty obsessed with drawing smoke these days. I guess the summer of '09 will be my "Smoke Period." (Thanks, Joey.)
