I just finished my Halloween costume while watching the very seasonally-appropriate “Brazil,” which is still as amazing and disturbing as I remember it. Liberal Democracy always bills itself as rule by laws instead of men, but it’s nice to have a little piece of art like that to remind you that that can go too far and fall into tyranny as well – Gotta keep an element of humanism in there.
Now on to some more inking. Going to finish that promo image before this weekend, too – There’s a con it needs to be at, bein’ all promotional and such.
Feeling a lot better today. I’d been taking over the counter sleeping pills to help normalize my schedule, but they just made me feel like a complete slug the next day so I quit, and now I have the energy to face whatever I need to do without making rude grumbling noises that I hope my neighbors can’t hear. I also watched some old-fashioned melodramatic giant robot action which, god help me, still fires me up far more than it reasonably should. …Super Lightning Kiiiiick! <-- Right, like that. Going to work more on the inks today, then head over and do some standup at a friend's comedy showcase. Need to go get some more fresh green food that came out of the dirt, too... All out of healthy stuff except for a few very disappointing apples. Well, I better stop padding out this post with nonsense about robots and apples, and instead show you something humanoid for your eyes to chew on:
It’s the in-progress version of the promotional image for the St. James episode I’m currently working on. More important to finish the actual content, I suppose, but I still gotta polish off this baby at some point – Something I can’t do while typing, so I’ll end here. Goodbye for now, I’m sure we’ll meet again.
Trying to update more frequently like I was doing when I was living in Montana – It’s always tough to build a new daily or weekly schedule when you shift locations, especially if there are no “bones” to give it structure, like school or a Nine-to-Five. But I just got back from my daily run in the park, and am feeling that syrupy, chilled, numb-yet-satisfied feeling that comes with being proactive and responsible, and thought, “why not update now?” resulting in the sentence you are currently reading, as well as this one: It is time to work on the inks for the “Tomb of Achilles” comic for St. James, as well as work a little on another painting currently sitting wet and ready on my easel. I finished a small one the other day and am waiting for it to dry, and then I will have a scan up; I really need a new digital camera… In the mean time, here is a goofy little drawing based on a friend’s Facebook status:
I don’t even know…
Going to Madison, WI on Saturday, will be back Monday with more drawn, painted, or otherwise created objects.
