links and such

To entertain you and give props to my various peeps (...gangsta-ism) I added a guide to some other great blogs for you to look at (all better than this one, guaranteed). and put my new twitter name up on the about me, so you know, if you're really bored/obsessive you could hear about my general thoughts on nothing in particular in 140 characters.

just words

Does anyone else feel like Halloween is weird when it's on a Sunday? Like you already did most all your Halloween things Friday or Saturday  and now it's just like wha? Still Halloween? No, I already watched the Halloween episode of every show, including some which I've never watched before and never will again, while making my costume, which I already wore to a fun Halloween party. I've listened to Halloween music, decorated, had ghost shaped cookies, struggled to get my keys out of my shoes at 1AM (even when I make my own costumes...there are never pockets! "costume" and "pockets" just don't go together..fortunately I've figured out i can put most everything I direly need: keys, card, and phone, into my chucks...also they give more traction when walking around in the rain than cute go-with-costume shoes..although I don't really know what shoes go with a tiger costume...). But here's to anyone still handing out candy or watching horror movies or etc, good job. But I'm just posting to say that starting tomorrow I'm working on a kind of bigger project than I usually do that will leave my very engrossed for at least the next month, so I may just be posting "oh look at this old comic I found" or "check out these pictures...that aren't recent, but new to you" or maybe even some "this isn't finished yet but lookie-look!"  and then there's a lot of other stuff going on (everyone here knows I'm still in the process of going to school right?) So that will also be taking up time from me being a good blogger, which I pre-apologize for.

Okay here's some I was waiting until I had altogether to to post. I always viewed them as a kind of series. Just as a reference, none of these in their original form is bigger than the palm of your hand, kind of like those wallet-sized, outdated pictures of their relatives that people used to carry around to show people in line with them at the supermarket who really didn't care before everyone got cellphones that could take pictures and kept them a good distance from everyone else at the supermarket, and these with large, awkward polaroid-esque borders to boot. Basically just the idea of what does home mean as a place.

Okay, so I was sick, and then my mom came to visit, and then a dog ate my homework and this lady gave me some beans, which she said were totally worth a whole cow, and...

...I took it to far didn't I? Well it was all true till the dog part. Anyway, here's something I made for my friend for her birthday, which is never going to get there in time (or even at all, my maiil likes taking the scenic route..but that might just because I never check if addresses are current until after it's in the mail...)

So happy almost birthday on the west (and already on the east) coast Jess! ...and if ya'll didn't get the joke at the end...

some drawings..

from a blog-project i'm closing down. i didn't just want to ditch them entirely so i'm putting some of my favorites here. (being sick, sleeping all day, leads to being up this late...the last film photo collection should come tomorrow/today, and at least one new comic by the end of the week)

what? no comics?

obviously my priorities are a little whack aren't they? Here's one from C.O.M Vol.10...more to come, but if I showed everything before it actually came into its own, there wouldn't be any excitement, now would there?     
want more than a computer screen view? ...available at

and they just keep coming

my computer is a mess, in case you didn't know

some more pictures...

these are digital so my old-school snobbery says they're not quite as good.. but aesthetically pleasing nonetheless.
