In case you haven't noticed, for the first 20 days of June, it has rained 16. I am going to go completely bonkers very shortly. I need a vacation.

I'm not a big anime fan (unless it's miyazaki), but I got the heads up on Twitter to this awesome-o opening.

It's pretty sweet.

Sweet Ass Art Blogs.

These blogs rock my socks. I'm basically always on the lookout for new blogs and sites, so I'll update this list pretty often. These pertain to animation, caricature, cartooning, and live figure studies.

I did not get a ride to TCAF.

Whatever, I have MoCCA coming to my own backyard in just mere weeks. I shall be grateful for the privilege the universe is bestowing upon me.

Also something I am grateful for is Star Trek. Because how AWESOME WAS THAT SHIT??



The tax refund check arrived and I took it to Forbidden Planet and did some shopping. Afterwards it was time for some booze-- Johnnie Walker, yo-- and bills. I also bought some pinkberry. I like frozen yogurt, so sue me.

I do have leftover pocket change, and that's great, since the last employer is OF COURSE dragging his heels to pay me. I do have some boards lined up for Thursday and Friday, and it pays pretty well, and I've worked for this agency before. They pay on time and promptly, so at least that's a relief.

And....... yeah that's all I got for now. I am a boring dude today.

It's been brought to my attention that the economy sucks, studios don't have money to pay me, and I am sort of broke. I may need a "real" job, one that I leave the house for. Possibly wear a name tag and / or uniform.

Oh the horror.

Lately, in between finishing a recent deadline and waiting for the Craigslist fairies to drop another gem of a job in my crotch, I have been drinking too much red bull and staying up to odd hours watching cartoons and sometimes drinking from my strangely vast collection of scotch (chalk that up to a former scotch-enthusiast roommate who, upon moving out of the country, just left 12 bottles of premium stuff behind). I can't say I regret it. I just need money to.... uhh... continue living.

PS there are cats outside having sex and yowling. I am not pleased with this

PPS I want to go to TCAF next weekend, anyone wanna give me a ride?

Dead sexy betch.


I went to a screening tonight at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Arts tonight, of some interviews with Chuck Jones. Every Thursday, MoCCA actually has lectures & conversations, yet this is the first time I've actually gone. It was very interesting.

At a time when I'm scrounging for storyboarding scraps or am doing boring post work at studios, dealing with the tedium of After Effects or Photoshop touch-ups, it's refreshing to be amongst animators, or at least people still interested in animation. It's inspiring, I dare say.


I was out of town all last week and part of this week. I was in Florida. Man, I hate Florida. I was visiting Broseph and Dru. Dru has kids now. At least, one fully formed, real kid. Another is on the way. It's strange. She's totally preggers. Her man seems upstanding and cool. Looking at her, Broseph, and myself it's hard to believe that (a. we are edging our way out of our twenties and (b. have known each other since before our twenties. Weird.

Slept like 12 hours out of 52.

Assignment done.

Never want to draw again.

Note to self: You need a new damn scanner. This one doesn't even have a lid.

I'm crashing for a brief nap (number 2 of the day) before I head to the city for 'Watchmen'. Will it suck? Will I hate it, and the last 13 years of embracing that graphic novel will be shat upon by Zack Snyder? Time will tell.
