Yea, I kept wondering "Why didn't they ask Allan (graphic design teacher)?". Well we finished it. Just randomly pasted pictures, and a bright red background. Two friends of mine are in the pictures. Haha. I also if they don't like it, what are they gonna do? We just did it in like ten minutes then left.
So I'm gonna stick with the hand-drawn borders. It's just easier. Thanks for your opinions guys.
A full month without missing an update. WOOOOO.
Thats all. Night night. Take it easy.

I had to finish out the page. I still don't know. Most of the people I've talked to says they love the hand drawn borders. One or two say I should go back to pre drawn. I'm still deciding. Tomorrow you will see my decision.
It's weird to me the look I drew on my face in this strip.

I figured give it one more shot before I ditch it completely. But I'm thinking of going back. I think it just gives it some steadiness. So let me know what you think.
No, I'm not pondering about the change, just about life, the universe, everything. And I didn't come up with 42. I started calling these kinda strips. The t-shrit strips. Meaning if I make shirts, that these designs would be cool to turn into a shirt. At least I think so.

Well I ran out of templates in my crappy sketchbook. So I figured I'd take some advice I got on the web forum. This comic was draw with no rulers at all. The advice was to make the borders as sloppy as everything else. To complete the feel of the comic. I thought it be interesting. Tell me what you guys think.
The comic is called San Antonio Rock City. I like, it's quite funny, go check it out.
Night all. Take care.

I know I'm not the true king of Winter-een-mas. But it's my comic.
Since I know nobody really knows what the hell winter-een-mas is. Click Here to get the low-down.
It's gonna be awesome to hang out with Dave, Fitz, Ted and whoever else is there again. Fun times to be had. WOOOOO.
Well I was in all day. And I just installed illustrator. So to see if I can do stuff I made this. Let me know what you think.
I also finished up the comic I was working on with the writer, Joe.
Let me know what you think about that.
Later. Thanks again you guys.

I started with just sore throat. Now I have a full on cold. So it's relax time. Going to class and work didn't help. My boss even said, "You know you can go home" and in response I said "Nope, no I can't, I'm broke."
So Hopefully this'll blow over. Take care everybody.

Kinda angry at the world today. Apparently today is the most depressing day of the year. At least thats what Wmmr said. I must say they might be on to something. The AC Moore thing helped a little, but I'm still kinda grrr.
Thanks to all you lovely peoples' votes. Not only did I crack the top hundred. I'm right now at 96. Thank you all for you support and votes. Take care.

The show was awesome. Damone rocked. They reminded me of those 80's metal guys. The lead singer was Joan Jett in my opinion at least. Rock and Roll Soldiers SUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKKEED. But they were energetic. The lead singer took the bass drum and jumped into the crowd. It was interesting. Big D was AWESOME. I'm probably going to listen closer so I can sing along. Cause chances are I will see them again. LESS THAN FUCKING JAKE. It was awesome they played all old stuff. They even did a medley of old songs. AUTOMATIC. I wanted shindo, but alas. Maybe next time. It's awesome how they always vary their set list every time they come around. Also sucks that my button came off my pants, and belt keep breaking. But I made it through the show.
The band practice was awesome. Eric and his friend Nick met me at the new flatline studios (formally Ground Control). We started working on four songs. We did a cheap recording so we can hear it. The band is sounding good for our first practice.
Last time I checked I was 108. I'm so fucking close. WOOOOOOOO. THANK YOU MY DEAR FRIENDS FOR CONTINUOUSLY VOTING FOR ME, I LOVE YOU ALL.
That's all, take care.

I went to the funeral today. Lot's of people. The poem that was on the cards, was very good. "God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, 'come with me.' With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away, Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best." The proves part kinda pisses me off. But the rest got to me.
Tonight Less than Jake. It shall be rock. If you see me say hi. I will be there.
Well I liked to say. I LOVE YOU ALL. Take care of yourselves and I'll see you tomorrow.
Friday, January 20, 2006
More cavities filled. Then I have more to get done, then more fucking work. BAH. Well I've been home all day. Thank god for no classes on Friday. Only took 3 and a half years.
Well later. I will be enjoying serenity tonight. THe movie not the state. Haha.

Animation Class day 2. Well we started on learning the program.
Classical animation was interesting. Lot's of graphic designers, some friends.
I got to start getting my ideas out for my animations. If I want out I have to get planning.
Well I'm out. Love yeas.

Well every time he mentions spelling, or writing assignments. He always makes it a point to say it too me. But yea, class was boring got out early. Also a friend of mine pointed out I should do that for my comic. I am all for spelling things right, but I will never use "proper" grammar. Because that is not how I talk. To do anything but write how I speak (even though most of the spelling errors are do to how I think they are spelled phonetically) wouldn't be real. It sounds right to me, that's what I usually go by. So deal with the lousy grammar. I'll check the spelling.
My cousin Joe passed away yesterday. He will be missed.
Tuesday, January 17, 2006
Well I walked into class 5 minutes before it was suppose to start. So I was laughed at. Class was okay, we watched animations, talked about what will happened, and stuff. It was great to see everybody. I get to see everybody else tomorrow. Also I got to show off my new external hard drive to everybody, hehe.
Well Eric gave me a tape of what they plan on doing and planned a practice at No Life-Line's old stomping ground, Ground Control. It should prove interesting to get behind the kit again.
That's it, we'll talk tomorrow. Take care everybody. And don't forget to vote. I'm so close to hitting the hundred mark. So keep it up guys. I love you all.
Monday, January 16, 2006
Last day of freedom. Tomorrow I go back to school. Which is good. I can use something to do. I also got my external hard drive in the mail. I draw ever closer to becoming a real animator. I also put all my music on it to play at school.
I also got a call early today by Eric. Apparently he needs a drummer. Since he knows I have the capacity to drum he asked me. So I started practicing again. Hopefully I can get some stamina, but don't tell Eric that. I actually need the chance. Haha.
Well I wish everyone luck starting class tomorrow. I'll see you there. Later.

Early update cause I'm going out tonight. Happy Birthday Alicia(whoever she may be haha). I'm going back to my old Mummers club, Greater Overbrook. This time I am old enough to drink. Ha.
Well hope everythings well. Take care of yourselves.

Bonus comic tonight.
I guess I can explain what exactly the fuck I was on when I said that. But we all know that it wouldn't do any good. All's I remember is that I looked up at my screen after I typed the sentence and that was there. Ironically I remember going back and correcting it. But then I look and realize it said what it said. Man I need to get some sleep.
Well I guess that is all. Night all, don't forget to vote.

Apparently .Tk is going to delete my domain name cause I have illicit or "bear adult entertainment". Sure I got some language but it's not a porno site. In any case I also figure they want me to pay for the .tk. Since I already bought a .COM(which is better) I say "Go ahead and fucking erase my name". I got to change my buisness cards and such anyhow.
Yea D&B was fun. Jay, Theresa, Andrew and me drank and played some video games. It was cool.
That's it. Night Night all.
Wednesday, January 11, 2006
Tell me you never thought of that song when it was raining out.
In any case I'm updating early for my usual wednesday met up with my friends Jay and Theresa. Hopefully won't be as crowded as last week. I think I'll also pay for the drink I got last week.
I'm sooooo close to cracking 100 on the webcomic list. Thank you guys for voting. I couldn't of made it from the low 600 to around 130 without you. Blease your big hearts.
I know it's 11 days late but I want to say HAPPY WINTER-EEN-MAS. I hope your all enjoying it so far. It so close to the actual week. I guess I'll be celebrating by going to D&B and playing games. But I celebrate it by playing Metal Gear 3. Which I think is totally lame you have to catch food to survive.
That's all. Night everybody. Don't forget to vote. *mwuah*

You know it's amazing what you find when your cleaning out your art portfolios. I found a pad of newsprint, a pad of bristol board, my metal ruler and my t-square. Weird.
I do that a lot when I stay up late. Especially when I watch Bullshit. Hehe.
Well nothing else. Still give your opinions on whether I should work on quality or quantity (see yesterday's post for more explanation). I've gotten some feedback, but I hope for more.

See I pride myself that I can turn something boring and turn it around. Luckily it's easier with certain things.
Well recently a guy named Brandon McFadden who does something called Fat Cat Online critiqued my comic. He admired my daily update schedule. But he thought my work was sloppy and rushed, and not very clean. Which I totally agree with, but as many of you have told me that's what you like about my comic. He also said that the website sucks, but I got someone working on that.
Back to the other point, about the sloppiness. To improve the quality of the comic, which I have to admit it won't be much, cause I doubt I can draw any better given more time. I could cut back my updating to only a couple of times a week to be decided later. Unless you guy's like the comic itself the way it is.
So let me hear you guy's. Better quality, or it's fine the way it is. I'd like to hear what you guy's have to say. Cause I can go either way and I need to see how you guy's feel about it.
Thanks again. See you tomorrow.
