Still not enough sleep around here.

Kristie's been working hard on her ceramics stuff in preparation for her national TV debut. I've managed to pencil 6 pages in two days time. Tonight I've laid out the rest of the story. I didn't have a steady enough hand to ink, so I'll save that for tomorrow.

Kristie's been up until 4 the last few nights working on her stuff. I just stay up as best I can, I don't have the willpower to stay up like I used to.

I did manage to make my best batch of Welsh Rarebit ever tonight. Kristie even hate it. She responded with a round of cinnamon toast - a Duncan staple of late.

We're watching To Kill a Mocking Bird now. These people sound like they're from Georgia, not Alabama...

I tried to be nice to Kristie, but she made ugly faces at me. I guess I've learned my lesson.

Fluke is next weekend!



A desk, some pages, a cat, and a tour of walls.

So here's my current work set up. You may notice the fancy set of Rapidograph pens that I got for my birthday. Or you may notice that I use a sock to clean my brushes. Or you may notice the mug of earl grey tea in the floor - the mug is from the same set as the mug I keep at work. It's not that I like the mug, but I can't seem to find one that I like better. And we all know that anyone who drink earl grey does so only because Capt. Picard did. You may also notice that the Real GhostBusters/TMNT curtains have yet to be replaced in my office. This is of course despite the fact that Kristie's put fancy nice ones in the living room. You may also notice that Randy Travis is playing on iTunes (just between Iron&Wine and A3 on shuffle).

Here are a few of the pages I've been working on, spread about on the floor in an "oh, I've dropped these drawings" dada sort of way.

Our cat Bunny found a better perch for bird watching.

Now for a tour of the things that we've got hanging in our house. Today we'll focus on art work.

This is a painting by Drew from Toothpaste for Dinner. It's called Space Hamster.

This by a fellow that terrorized Tucson with in Grad School. Little does Mr. Ian Kimmerly know that I'll be visiting him in April... Hmm... Patrick, too, for that matter.

Here's a painting by Jamie Adams, a recently married friend with whom I shared much time in undergrad in Montevallo. I haven't sent him a wedding gift yet. Not even a card. I did used to have his email... Not even a call (I don't have a phone #). Surely he'll stab me next time I see him.

A toner drawing by Ken Procter, a professor in Montevallo. He traded me this for a drawing of Kristie playing Nintendo.

I tried to take a picture of the tiny Barbara Chapman drawing I have on my wall, but it was too blurry (even worse than the ones I did post).

I guess that's it for today. I also updated the links over there on the side -->


New banner and other things as well.

Oh, blogger - you're changing so much. I can't even figure out how to manage this mess of a weblog. I've thrown together a new banner - that's really the best I can do now. There's some other mysterious errors on the page somewhere (who knows). Blogger has some sort of fancy design mangager untility that scares me. I'm too used to butchering html to let it go. I'll get up the nerve some day. Maybe I should do some sort of fake test design blah blah blah.

Here's a cruddy four-page thing for my Grad Studio's class anthology (80s Cartoons is the theme). Mine of course is the worse of the bunch, granted I didn't have pressure of getting a grade for it. I could explain the idea behind it, but there is really no excuse for how sloppy it is.

As it turns out, the e-Learning folk didn't really go for the crazy photo, so I had to try again...

I've been making progress on my short Gobnobble story. I'll get a few shots sometime tomorrow maybe. I've been trying to take of some stuff around the house (as well as wrapping up school stuff). I guess I've still got some more scad stuff to do...
