It indeed has been a very very long time since I drew something that at least looked realistic. Granted I do better realistic with pencil then pen, which I used. When I thought about it, I did sketch Maria Shriver at work cause she had her picture on some thing. Suffice to say, it was bad. The last time I recall drawing something good that was realistic was figure drawing in college. I've been meaning to get back into still life and figure drawing. Just refresh and shake of this cartoonness.
As for Jury Duty. I was called in for a federal jury duty. So I made $40 dollars today plus 55 cents per mile I had to travel to get to center city. I got lucky, I got sent to a trial but they didn't pick me, so they said I could go home and didn't have to come tomorrow. WOOOOO!!! Even though I wasn't picked, I did the math. I'd make almost as much at jury duty then at work. Interesting.
Well that's all folks. Later.

I forgot to mention it was my good friend Theresa's birthday yesterday. So happy birthday to her. Her birthday was celebrated at the Spaghetti warehouse. It was fun, and the food was meh.
Well that's it. Later folks.
"And she was the kind of girl who you would give up eating meat for. No more salami. No more steak or potatoes. Yeah you would walk on down to the health food store and buy hummus. And tabouli. And babaganoush. And rice cakes, rice cakes, rice cakes."

Yup, saw it on a car while I was getting driven to work. You would think someone who believed so much they'd put such a phrase on their car would take care of it. Oh well.
"Don't ever forget. All the sleepless nights. We stayed up late. Until the sun would rise. No matter how far you get. I'll be a step behind. To catch you when you fall down."

Yup. I bought a tube at work. Got a few funny looks haha. But hey I explained.
It's almost done healing WOOO!

This is the first tattoo I had to explain really. All the others kinda explain themselves. I mean if you didn't know me you'd wonder why on earth would I tattoo such weird things. But most do know me and they figure it makes sense. In the end when you think about it the question mark comic makes sense too. But nobody thinks when the look at it "Hey it's a comic strip." I think cause the marks kinda overpower the outline surrounding em.
But hey, it's awesome. Later.

It's true. I'll even give you an example. I'll say Classical Arrangement by Dillinger Four is the best song on the record, in which she will scream hell no or Playmate of the Year by Zebrahead is cool, which she'll just laugh at me. Yea.
"Oh take a chance. Let your body get a tolerance. I'm not a chance, but a heat wave in your pants. Pull a breath like another cigarette. Palms up, I'm trading 'em (trading 'em). I'm the oracle in my chest. Let the guitar scream like a fascist. Sweat it out, shut your mouth. Free love on the streets. But in the alley and I ain't that cheap, now."

Yup, I played open mic night by myself. It was cool and I got a positive response. Though nobody was there haha.

Yup yup. Happy St Patrick's Day folks. Be safe.
Yea I forgot to mention that I got a haircut, I didn't think of a good joke.
"I met my be-bop baby at the Union Hall. She could dance all night and shake the paint off the walls. But when I saw her smile across a crowded room. Well I knew we'd have to leave the party soon. As the band began to play out of tune."

Yup yup. Once again I visit Doc to get tattooed. As you can see I got two. One is a 1up mushroom with a phrase underneath that you can see in this picture. It's not it exactly but it gives you the idea. They second as you saw is a comic strip with question marks in em(it symbolizes wondering what will happen next).
"And it's just. Something that I've been dying to let you know. And now that' you're gone. I'm holding on and I just can't let go."

Yea, have a cold and I've been coughing a lot. Nose doesn't feel so good either.

Taking a break from the submitted titles to bring you my favorite line from the Watchmen cause I'm going to see it tonight. Though it's hybrid of the movie and book. Seems the movie doesn't directly quote Rorschach, but reworked the line. Which I would have to fit, but I think it's awesome. The last panel is all me. haha.
