There *will* be a day when I go to work that I won’t have things smashed and my life threatened…I swear.

Bedtime for Bonzo

By adminSunday - March 23rd, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

I had to ask someone to leave the store tonight.
I do it all the time.
This time the woman started screaming at me and threatening me.
All of a sudden, the next thing I know one of the regulars is in there yelling back at her about what a cool person I am and that she should leave me the hell alone.
I kept telling her that she had to leave.
She kept screaming at me
And the regular kept telling her to leave me alone.
Finally she gave us all one last threat before she walked out and threw her Jones soda on the ground in front of the store.
This job is safer than my old job how?
(Yes there *is* a resume in the making)

Babbles & Seeds

Sitting on a knife’s edge, with only myself to stop me.
Put off what I want to do for the better of everyone else.
Including myself.

Oh, and here’s another set of chicken scratches:

Fear and Loathing on the Convention Trail

By adminThursday - March 20th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

I just emailed my dad about going to the Edmonton convention.
The next thing I need to do is get my hands on some cheap T-shirts and develop some sort of budget for the next two months.
I also need to print off more comics and send them off to friends and family (kids, parents, ex-boyfriends)
I just realised another thing I need to do…make contact with some of the comic shops in Edmonton to see if I can get my comics in there.
I’m going to need to take an extra day off to recover from that weekend….

And now for some more craptacular art:

Fear and Loathing on the Convention Trail

By adminSunday - March 16th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

I sent off the money for the table.
I just picked out the number…#34.
Once the cheque clears the bank I’ll be getting a bus ticket to Edmonton.
Then at the end of April I’ll be attending the Edmonton Toy and Comic Convention.
In other news, I’m hitting up tomorrow’s Convention as well.
This is where you know I’m crazy.
Three Conventions in three months.
But I’m also going to my very first out of town convention as well.
Yeah, it’s exciting yet it makes me nervous.
Did I mention that as I type this I am currently printing out Guardian #2?
And yes I’m still going to burn the first issue I staple together.
Not to worry, I plan to record it for posterity…(and so that everyone can see whether or not i catch fire in the process).
I have to be at work in five hours…damn it…I need a nap…later fools.

Burn, Baby, Burn

By adminTuesday - March 11th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

I would love to be asleep right now.
But apparently that just isn’t going to happen.
Colin Upton came into my store tonight.
For those of you who don’t know him, he is a well known zinester from way back.
But that is neither here nor there.
I asked him how he was and in turn he asked me how I was.
I told him about how I was just finishing up a comic.
That is when he asked the question…
“So are you having a release party for it?”
I of course said the worst thing….”I’ve been thinking about it.”
Now I probably will have to.
Although I did warn him that I plan to burn the first copy of the comic I print off.
Release party and a show?
As long as the venue doesn’t mind small flames…
Gah, I’m an idiot.
I’m going to curl up with the laptop and fall asleep writing the script..yes the script for I&L #3 (I’ve already got a start on it)
If I’m lucky.

P.S. Here’s more chicken scratchings:

Seeds

By adminFriday - March 7th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

Tonight is a night for dark thoughts to be put down on paper. That’s what the waitress said. I agree with her. Tonight is the night I begin my impossible pictures series. Don’t ask why I call it that. You’ll see once I get more into it.
Tonight will also see the beginning of my random throw away story Seed. I’ll see how long it lasts and where it goes.
As for my personal thoughts and feelings right now? I don’t know, but it feels like I’m catching up on a few years of emotions right now. All and nothing. That’s me.

The Alignment of Planets

By adminSaturday - March 1st, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

Now the budgetting begins. In an ideal world, the kids would have their Spring Breaks at the same time and Spring Break would happen at the same time as the convention…or start the monday after the convention ends. That would be perfect. We’ll see how it works out….
and now…back to coffee
