So... totally challenging myself and others (I'm especially looking at you Wes O Mythic Foe!) to fill a small sketchbook (like those 3 pack moleskeins) before the end of July. I want to try and fill one each month.

I might make them into a skb... Wonder if anyone would wanna buy such a thing.... Or perhaps a subscription to such a thing...

Other things I would like to offer subscriptions to are:
  • original art cards (mmm atc paper - thank you strathmore!)
  • dinki comics
  • screen prints!
  • buttons - sort of hard without a button maker
I've gotten off topic haven't I?

By the end of july I will have a full small sketchbook. I will.

Mosaic of Me, an attempt to keep posting

Belatedly, after admiring many Mosaic of Me posts, I decided to get in on the action (my answers in italics):

1. What is your first name? (trisha)

2. What is your favorite food? (steak nachos)

3. What high school did you attend? (springstead high school)

4. What is your favorite color? (blue)

5. Who is your celebrity crush? (joe flanigan)

6. Favorite drink? (cappuccino blast )

7. Dream vacation? (venice)

8. Favorite dessert? (chocolate mousse cake)

9. What do you want to be when you grow up? (coast guard captain)

10. What do you love most in life? (books)

11. One word to describe you? (surly)

12. Your Flickr name? (freakhour)

Next step is to type your answers into Flickr’s search. Then, using pictures from the first page of the search only, put together a mosaic using Mosaic Maker. (3 columns; 4 rows) Finally, if you’re me, be amazed that you got it to work!

Try it yourself if you’re so inclined...

Monster-Blood Tattoo

My god I love these books. Seriously. I love Rossamund and I love Miss Europe and I hope Fouracres shows up again! Why? I LOVE HIM TOO!! And the two old men and Mr. Sebastipole... Sigh... So much love in my black stone heart....

Comic Progress

Haha Not much I know but whatever... You can also see all the "marginals" or the doodling I do in the blank space around the live area of the page. Just whatever is crossing my mind, like odd thoughts, other people's work or ideas for new stories. Like the Nosferatu. I loathe sissy vampires. (with certain and very particular exceptions!) That silent movie Nosferatu is still one of the creepiest movies I have ever seen. Seriously!!!

Unearthed from the HD

It's amazing how much stuff ends up on a HD over time before you go, let's clean this crap off and have a lot of empty space. Yes it is totally the equivalent of throwing away three rooms of furniture. <3 Title Screen MockupThis was just me having fun making screen mockups, see I had this idea that a DJ game would be ridiculous fun on the DS, not actually DJing but more like a rhythm game. Yes I TOTALLY ripped Robert Valley but he is almost synonymous with music to my thinking.

Jackson is so cute!A sketchy doodle of Jackson, my one armed tea room owner and waiter. I love him so much. He is way way too sweet. Seriously.

AaliPrince Aali, marvelous he, I like drawing poofy pants.... He's thin and needs to eat. <3

All that Jazz

Yeah... Removing the abracadabra comic blog. Pretty much only I cared... Of course that is sort of true about everything really but we carry on!

Also I stubbed my little toe so hard I almost vomited. No lie.

Repost and rants

Just a short ranty sort of comment to say I am so pleased with the cover letter I just sent out. It is so full of my personality I will probably not get the job but it is tiring to write a serious, colorless cover letter with every single application I make.

So here, enjoy a look at Trent in flash. His legs and arms have bones!! BONES!! and it is fun to push them about. <3
