It’s been a while since I’ve had time to work on this site, and I’m thinking it’s about ready for a total makeover… Stay tuned!

State(ment) of the Art

Filed under Idea, News, Project

Working on an artist’s statement for grad school… That seems to be the first step, even as a prerequisite for getting letters of recommendation. It’s very difficult to find any kind of unifying theme in what I’ve been working on. I suppose that in itself could be spun into some kind of coherent whole, but the phrasing – Aye, there’s the rub. In the mean time, brainstorming them on a sheet of paper will suffice. I have a few ideas, but I don’t want to spill the beans just yet for fear of seeming unforgivably haughty… But I suppose any artist’s statement worth the electrons expended to write it needs to exercise its creator’s command of culture to the utmost…

Working on a comic for some film producers in Australia at the moment, as well as illustrations for SparkNotes, and Ex Occultus for St. James. All in all, my time is well-occupied.

Been a little under the weather this past week, but it seems to have crested and I should be back to my regular ebullient self before too long.

So very tired today.

Been almost a year since this site was put up; should probably find out how to rotate the graphics on the top banner to something else, and maybe the city background, too. Some of it seems a little niche and is probably putting some people off.

Gotta make appointments with grad school admissions people – Academic resume is starting to feel a little thin. But I suppose anyone interested in serious interdisciplinary learning feels embarrassed by whatever school they went to, either for too much pretentiousness or not enough. None of this would be a problem if “self-educated” weren’t a synonym for “crackpot.”

We are being Scanned.

Just got a big new scanner that’ll let me digitize things that were previously too big, so a couple paintings and drawings have been put up. Go check ‘em out.

Gonna be what now?

I Can Never Bring Myself to Throw Away a Box

It’s pretty much true (Maybe I can make a costume out of them later! Beep boop I am a robot…) and I’m thinking that’s the title for this thing I squeezed out this morning during breakfast. I was playing around with making hexagons on the computer, and a tool that lets you erase only specific line segments, and liked the pattern I created enough that I colored it in:


I will probably put it in the Digital section later, but I just wanted to get it up.

Back to other things.

Ping… Ping…

Filed under Content, Idea, News

Just a blog sonar ping to confirm my existence. This blog has a deadman switch that will cause it to explode if I don’t post every so often (I’m guessing, I dunno how this works).

I had a great holiday season and 2010 is looking up both career and personal-wise. I’m very busy, and I hope I stay that way. Also thinking about giving up some different kind of vice or indulgence every month and then pitching a graphic novel about it at the end of the year.

I am also growing an enormous beard, because it is cold outside, and I want to see how big it gets by springtime. I have not shaved since November 1st, except for my neck and some trimming, and I will post pictures before I shave it off.

Back against the Wall

Just uploaded some of the pages I’ve been doing for Saint James Comics to the Comics (!) section, so go check them out to see a bit of a different style. I removed the dialog as a courtesy and so that you’ll go check out their site (it’s cool!)

Did a stand up comedy set at a nearby establishment last night, and someone was there taping it, so if I get ahold of that footage I’ll put it up here. I don’t know if I “killed,” but it was a low-energy night for everyone and I did pretty well, considering.

In other news, this is very impressive and you should watch it:

The answer is…

I stumbled upon this inspired show after seeing a clip from it in a montage of weird internet videos. Apparently John Meyer tweeted this a few months ago, and while I will never enjoy his music, I have to say I’ve re-evaluated his taste in comedy:
