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:

Switched my browser to Google Chrome because apparently my computer has contracted some sort of deadly Firefox Leprosy. I like it so far – The theme decor momentarily relieves the obscene banality of human life.
Finished all the layouts and designs for the “Tomb of Achilles” story for St. James Comics. Going to be gettin’ to those pencils, now. Might be getting a new round of comics and illustration work, too, but I don’t want to jinx it (These things have a tendency to fall through) so I’ll spare the details.
Had a crazy nightmare last night–almost more of a vision or a bad acid trip–and have been on kind of an adrenaline high all day, due to my relief that I was not tortured to death by monsters. There wasn’t even a plot, it was just those shapes we all see behind our eyelids continually morphing into a series of grotesque “ohmigod are those eyes on its teeth!?”-type creatures. Maybe I’ll get a painting or two out of it.
Going to a gallery opening tonight, too – Hopefully will make some connections.
Made a cute little painting the other day, just for some practice and to change gears a bit. Check it out in the “Paintings” section.
Just got back from seeing a talk by Jules Pfeiffer, Matt Groening, Lynda Barry, and Chris Ware at a school here in Chicago. Fantastically interesting, especially in their encouragement of pursuing ones’ own artistic sensibilities in order to keep things genuine. I’ve got to get more portfolios out there, though, and make that count. So that’s what I’m going to do right now.
I survived Halloween, which was a lot of fun. I really could not have wished for it to go better. Waiting to get pictures, though.
Today is my birthday, but first, a little inking, and then off to see some friends and a comedy show. There will be a finished batch of inks this week, too, and possibly a new painting. I am pumped.
