The Christmas Mix

Enjoy some of [adult swim]'s Holiday cards.

After Christmas i will be posting my top 5 games, movies, and albums of 2007, just before the new year.

Here's a quick update:
I drove home again for Christmas, and about 19 hours later I made it there. Last time i made this trip i was still awake enough to get on here and blog before i went to bed. This time i passed straight out. Besides the cost of gas being slightly more money this time, i also managed to pull in a $150 speeding ticket from the state of Indiana. Thanks Indiana.
It doesn't take me long to fall into routine, so by morning, my friends where already calling to see if i could hang out. What a good feeling, definitely a feeling of want and importance. After catching up my mom and Stan (my stepdad) over breakfast/lunch, i took a trip to the "Beer Mart" with a couple of friends. Then, back to the video games i felt i left in Pennsylvania. It kinda sucks because i was backed into a spot wear i had to choose who i wanted to hang out with. The group i ended up with was a group of friends that hadn't been together since preschool. Separately, we have seen each other for a couple of years after that. But even so, it was a jaw dropping event. Jed, who is still in medical school at Jefferson in Philly, has probably led the most interesting life of us 4 in only 23 years. He has been to missions in Rwanda, and running with the bulls in Spain, and helped rebuild New Orleans just to mention a few. Jen and Jon were the other two, which i have actually seen fairly recently. The J Crew. To sum things up here, it was a great time catching up, there were endless things to talk about, never a dull moment for any of us i don't think. Things like this really remind you of what this season is really all about; Kindred-ship, either family or friends.
Today; football, more friends, and good east coast pizza and wings. i think i weigh 10 pounds more.
Tomorrow it looks as if i will be going up to my uncles house with my dad and sister... which i haven't done in years. I hope it works out.

"ho ho hopefully this holiday will make us believe that, were exactly where were supposed to be."

Something Good. Run With It.

Here is a thank you card i threw together for my friend Nick to send out while he was interviewing. With a little more time i could have made it look a lot better, but with the time constraints, i think it turned out OK. It got some good reactions with the people at Rockstar Games and some his friends.

He has another interview on Friday (i guess that means i will have to make a few more cards up...meh). Here's routing for you Nick!

Abortion

Update on Richard Quest:

Finnish Newspapers Reported.
The gay Jewish guy is Richard, the Jolly bearded guy is Santa, the card in their hands is the one we designed for them (notice the huge-ass Hallmark logo we slapped on the back so people know).

Whispy Winter Weather

Gemini Card Company

This weather reminds me of back home. It makes me miss it. There's about an inch of snow that covers the ground and it's cool. Something about this weather doesn't make me cold right away, but it has a very specific feel to it.

Big weekend planned.

A Page From Your Book


*DISCLAIMER* This image is several weeks old, but i wanted to post some pen sketches of mine. Due to my problems with my laptop, i haven't been able to scan them. I did these about a week after Heather and i broke up. In no way does this reflect my feelings at this moment. I am actually in a pretty content place in my life.

I now have 3 printed cards as far as i know. I got samples in the mail today. I will try and post them up later... They are actually a little embarassing.

Today Cecilia and i officially registered our cards to Mo. Cripes. Scary. It was a long, painstaking process that i am not looking forward to doing again anytime soon.

And then, Heather sent me this. Apperently, there is a fine line between being a geek and being mentially challenged.

Good Luck, Friday.

Oh good morning indeed.
A few things to post: Because i work for a card company this is appropriate research:
Seriously Postcards.

Some e-cards.


Also, this guy, Josh Powers, just left Hallmark.
I would have left too if they weren't letting me illustrate. Good luck guy. I don't think it would be hard to make a name for yourself.

Come on Hallmark, get with the mother fuckin flippin times!
