American Library Association poster :)

"a slow brain"

Wednesday - September 8, 2004

Man, after finishing the ALA poster stuff yesterday, I totally ran out of steam. I was only able to get four drawings done in four hours. That's pretty pathetic :) So, here i am pulling myself together to get the rest of today's comic done. Of course, it doesn't help that todays comic requires 9 drawings. ^^;;

Anyways, just to keep everyone at least moderately entertained, i figured that I'd show you how the poster came out. Not too bad, i don't think. There are still some things on here that i need to tweak, and i have to pull the high rez for-print version together, and i have to balance the colors a little... little stuff, really. Overall it didn't come out too bad. It's a bit like what MT would be like if it were full color. Each page would take two friggin weeks to produce :P Once again, big thanks to hawk over at AG for some "oh, you can do that in photoshop? wow, that makes my life easier" pointers.

Sorry the comic is late today, my brain slowed down last night, and there's not much that can be done about that. See, if I were really bad i'd just post this poster as a DPD, but i'm not gonna do that. :P Comic is coming, enjoy the fake DPD like posting here this morning, and on that note, i'll get my sorry ass back to work on this comic thing...

Oh, and just for fun, here's the first preliminary sketch of the poster, and the second one. It's kinda fun to see the progression :)

"conspiracy theory"

Monday - September 13, 2004

For Labor Day we went to my folks who live 50 miles from us out in the country. Dad made ribs. Personally, I hate ribs. The upshot is that we borrowed their truck to run errands during the week. We had the mother load of cardboard and other recyclables to return and we bought a cheap college dorm room piece of furniture from a local retailer that is kind of a Target wanna-be. It is touted as a sofa-bed. Well, those terms a might generous as I would label it more park bench-army cot. It's just for guests so who cares! Not this has anything to do with the rant it's just strikes me as funny.

Ok, ok, back to the rant. So this morning Piro drives back to retrieve our car and walks into the house and there sits my dad recuperating from surgery which he had sometime during the week and did not tell any of us kids about. This is the THIRD time in 4 years that he has pulled this stunt. These aren't minor little things either. He knows I am extremely not happy when he does this and yet he persists. He says he doesn't want us to worry. Well, ya know what, I am in a constant state of worry that he is going to run off and have surgeries without telling us. Wouldn't it be better to worry just one day? What if, god forbid, he should cork off right then and there during surgery? I can't believe my own mother plays along with him. She'd be the one left to call us up and say, "Yeah, I worked in the food pantry today and oh, BTW your father is dead." Or maybe they just wouldn't tell us because they wouldn't want us to be sad. It is so infuriating. I'll call him tomorrow and give him the usual scolding. It's almost like a game to him now.

Parents never get less annoying - they just start annoying you differently. There must be a secret rule book parents get. They must pass it out in the delivery room or in maternity ward with the formula and diapers. It is too well planned to be anything but a conspiracy.
