I’m gunna list some stuff that happened to me this fine fall evening.
Said to my wife “I’m thinking of going to Dick Blick to get some art supplies.”
Never hearing of this store her response was “WHAT!?”
Yea it’s a funky name. Art supplies procured.
We made some notebooks out of misprinted and test print posters tonight. I’ll post them soon. Thirty page books. They came out pretty rad.
When you watch the second half of “Alien” it’s almost sacrilege not to watch “Aliens” right afterwards. Alas I had to draw.
When you find a new way to draw snake skin you have to be careful. Mostly cause you want to draw that shit all night long. You gotta cut that out though. Cut it out.
Sketches and drawings coming in for a landing. Yes this means you. On it and in it.
It seems all micron pens have been raided from all the chain arts and crafts stores in South Jersey. Lame.
Richmond’s Inter Arma has recorded a most inspiring record called The Cavern. I’m standing in a Jersey art studio giving this record a standing ovation at 5am. Jaw dropping.
Off to School We Go
"The story might sound incredible to some, but it isn’t uncommon for children from less privileged regions facing immense hardship on their commute to the institute of learning. You will be surprised at the great lengths some children are willing to go to reach school." via
On Monday I had the second abdominal surgery in a little over six months. The surgery was to correct an incisional hernia caused by the surgery I had for my exploding gallbladder. Fun right? Incisional hernias are quite common after abdominal surgery. Mine was the size of a football. Think Kuato from Total Recall hanging off yer belly. Even more fun right?
It’s a four to six week recovery time. I expect to be drawing by next week in short bursts. Continuing current projects and setting up new ones. This surgery will not screw things up as much as the last emergency surgery did because it was planned. Still inconvenient and extremely painful but planned none the less.
I will be spending a bunch of time recovering by gobbling pain pills, ordering graphic novels, pushing two sixty pound boxers off of me and contemplating a tattoo that will commemorate the most successful and trying year of my life. Yes I look at getting through these obstacles as successes.
The one thing I won’t be doing is setting up a crowd sourcing or kickstarter to get through this stuff financially. I don’t know how I feel yet on digital or organized begging but it makes me feel weird at this point. “Look at that homeless person begging for change. Where’s his integrity” Was a statement I heard used in a debate on crowd sourcing. I don’t even feel that way. The eloquence level I have on the subject so far is it makes me feel weird. So if ya wanna help out by a poster.
There’s several projects seeing the light of day shortly. Thanks for any interest you have shown with this post. As I said with my last surgery you can cut me in half but not out.
Several reports of the status of women’s butts and boobs in music trends by several music “news” sites and blogs leads me to believe that idiocracy is truly here.
