October 19-23, 2009

It's kinda surprising when it hits you in the face like that.
And Comics Arts Forum is a gathering of industry artists in Savannah.
Lots of fun, but veeery short notice.

It was nice to be back in Savannah for the familiarity and being able to walk around downtown.
But holy cow was it humid.
I love the dry heat, I really do.

Forum was amazing.
The workshops were tons of fun and the portfolio review enforced a lot of what I was doing already.
Everyone there was enthusiastic and amazing.
I'm so glad I went.
As for the cat.
I can't really get mad at her for trying to sneak a snack or two.
She's just too cute.

October 12-15, 2009

Oh ho ho!
This works out much better now, doesn't it?
I'm still drawing the comics on those 3 x 17 scraps, but I reformat them after they've been scanned to make things easier print and read wise.
Now, hopefully, you don't have to do so much clicking.
I do this all for you.

I actually have no idea why.
But it seems like I should.
I've been racking my brains trying to figure out if I have some sort of trigger for these fun little anxiety-attacks-without-actual-anxiety.
So far no luck.
The only thing they seem to have in common is that they tend to show up when I really want to sleep.

You know, sometimes creativity works against you.
But the worst is when you know you're frustrated and you have no means of stopping it.

Sorry the type is so tiny on this one. I'm evil.

Seriously tho'
I think about this stuff ALL THE FREAKING TIME.
With no stimulus.
And as irrational as I know it is, its a very difficult voice to cut off.

October 7-9, 2009

I am so simple.
Give me a cookie and I could do anything.

As for the Artwalk Merchandise I've been going on about, keep an eye I out.
I may very well work something out here so you can get a visual.
Which leads me to my next point:

for the love of god
know how I can get a gadget (those nifty do-dads on the sidebar) -->
that will post text and pictures.
I swear I have spent many a night in a obsessive death spiral trying to figure out how to do just that.
Keep in mind that I haven't a clue how to write code, and I'm not really looking to learn now.

The answer is probably so simple I've overlooked it completely...

My cat is so simple.
I let him out by accident, forgetting he had an appointment later in the day...
All I had to do was sit on the brick wall outside our house.
As per usual, Chris showed up, eager to monopolize my attention.
His mistake.
Although, he is really at his most adorable when he's terrified.

I'm traumatizing him, aren't I?

I submit for subject of today's educational moment: the doggie bag.
This is a bag in which one relocates their doggie's mess once they've... messed.
Now, pleased as I am to say that not only are dog walker's in my area familiar with this practice and (more surprisingly) putting it to use; a crucial aspect of the doggie bag etiquette appears to have been overlooked completely.
Allow me to clarify.
Once the time and effort to bag the dog's mess has been taken:
you must take it with you.
Don't just leave it in the middle of the sidewalks for slubs like me to collect.
Just because its wrapped with a pretty little bow, doesn't mean I'm any more thrilled about having to pick it up.

September 29- October 2, 2009

The cupboard next to our front door holds my dogs' leashes.
It is literally impossible to open that cupboard for any reason without exciting them.
Thankfully in this case, I actually intended to walk them (I just wanted them to remain calm.)
Otherwise we would have been in for a huge disappointment.

I get stuck during the process of dressing on a fairly regular basis.

I'm going through some sort of fall cleaning phase right now.
I guess.
