Thoughts in a Thoughtless Mind

Chip Kidd was back in KC for the night promoting his new book Bat-Manga. The book is amazing. It's full of Japanese Batman from 1966/67 whether it was toys or comics. Chip and I even talked a little about Gotham Knight for a bit. He is really cool.


PS. i spend all night trying to redesign my blog, and it just ended up as mush... i need to put a little time in when i can.

Half in Hell

You won't regret it.
It's the best superhero movie i have ever seen. Hands-down.

Shades of Grey

My motivation has been lacking lately (I wonder how often i have started posts out with lines similar to that). Work has been a constant struggle, I think it's probably because i haven't been off work in so long, and i haven't had a whole lot of tickets to work on. Now, i finally have work on my plate, and i can't seem to inspire myself. But it's not only work, when i'm home i don't even feel like working on my sisters website, or even blogging.

Have i lost my muse?

Lately, i have found myself much happier than usual (except when i am staring blankly at my computer monitor of course). My social life is getting much better... it's a shame that my work life is probably suffering for that exact reason.

Questionable Content. This web comic kept me from doing work all day Friday and already a lot of this week. It's probably the most relatable comic on the internet for me.

Last night, i watched:
Next - It was an original take on an age old story. A man, who can see 2 minutes into the future (that's the original part) is called upon to save the world, but he is reluctant (that's the boring story i have heard over and over again). The acting was drab and lifeless, especially Jessica Biel. If only you were as good an actress as you are hot in this movie. Parts were corny and uncalled for, such as the stupid love story element, and the "evil" FBI vs crazed Russians. However, the great action scenes and special effects made up for SOME of this. Sadly, not enough to make a full recovery. If only the rest of the movie was as good as the last 20 minutes. In the very end, they almost left it open for a sequel, but like Nicholas Cage, i was able to see into the future, and i saw a box office bust. ZING! Seriously, Epert, give me a call when you are ready to retire...

I think i should probably get to early, maybe get a fresh start on tomorrow. I promise i will post something a little more interesting later.

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.

Exorcise My Demons

Last night, the time had come for Heather to tell me to stop writing about her on this blog. It was an ugly situation last night, and we both ended up angry with eachother, but i will hold up my end of the deal, and this is the last post concerning that. Everyone can breath a collective sigh of relief they don't have to hear my bitching anymore. But i feel renewed. Some how last night had changed me. Getting up this morning was less of a stuggle, I was able to think about thing without getting upset. There are things i would like to write on this blog but i have decided to be a huge girl and start a journal. To both keep my sanity AND write about the things that bother me, i need an outlet.

Oddly enough, there is NOTHING interesting to post yet today. That leaves me in quiet the conundrum on what to post now. Hm. So i am going back to an old stand by:
Dr. McNinja
The picture says it all i think. Pretty ridiculous, and ridiculous = funny.

Maybe more later.

...after a demon is exorcised i bet the demon feels pretty crappy...

Anniversary of Nothing

Another rainy day in Missouri. I remain heart broken. Today will be especially hard. I had planned to take Heather out to dinner tonight and have a nice romantic evening. Obviously, that won't be the case.

Thats one of my illustrations. this particular character, of myself, i have been drawing the longest out of all of my others. i like how he has gotten progressingly uglier as time progressed. He is a much simpler design but i believe it was for the better. it's too bad i suck as an illustrator.

Mike Perry. Midwest is Best.
I loves me some typography. His illustrations are awesome too. I am getting the impression that most people have viewed this site well before i have... but i am going to post it anyhow, because i think his stuff is just neato. Besides, i haven't really come across anything else worth posting.

If you enjoy looking at what you can't afford to do to your place (i know i am!), then this is the site to visit. Modern interior design in wealthy homes.

At work, none of MY designs were picked in the line-up. "Too alternitive looking" they say. I'm just sick. Today sucks, as usual. Enjoy the sites, i am going to go sulk over what work i have.
