The Gig (or not)

By adminThursday - May 29th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

I didn’t talk much about the convention on Sunday.
It went pretty well.
There was a guy there going around looking for artists for this screenplay he wanted to make into a graphic novel.
I didn’t put much stock in it, but gave the guy my card with my email address on it.
He just emailed me to ask me what format I wanted the script in.
While I’m typing this he’s just sent me the script.
I don’t think this is going to go anywhere but hey.
May as well give it a whirl.

Life, The Universe and My Dad

By adminSunday - May 25th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

So apparently my dad who was googling for fun, put my name into the search engine.
He found this blog.
And was interested…especially when he found the “You Disgust Me Video” and “The Day of The Tentacles”
At least he merely wanted to know the artistic significance of the Tentacle site and the video, did disgust him.
This means there will soon need to be explanations.
Later.

This One’s For You

By adminTuesday - May 13th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

Experiences?
Finally getting almost all of my comics to print out the way they are supposed to (aka hitting register)
Making decisions about the little things like my hair.
Planning
Plotting
Throwing out innuendos right left and centre as I wait for the return…
Most importantly?
Getting a chance to spend time with my best friend.
Laughing like little kids
Acting like little kids
With exuberance far past our years
It’s not about material
It’s about feeling how I haven’t felt in too long
Laughing too hard
Almost spraying coffee everywhere
And like a child
I’m greedy
I want more of those moments
Because there’s never enough.
Thank you

(poo on your shoe, simply will not do)

Apologies

By adminTuesday - May 13th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

I’d like to take this time to apologise to all the men in my life who have had to put up with me over the years…
Frankly I don’t know how you’ve done it…
but kudos to you.
And to the one guy who is still a big part of my life?
You’ve got to be crazier than I am.
That’s all I can say.

(Next post I promised to a sweetheart friend of mine)

The Obligitory update

By adminSaturday - May 10th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

It occurs to me I haven’t posted Seed in a while…..

Of course these characters are the reason for the comic in the first place.
Seed would be a prelude to another comic…a warm up if you will.

I’m not a poet, so if you don’t want to see bad prose…then politely screw off

By adminTuesday - May 6th, 2008Categories: Uncategorized

I went to a poetry slam on Monday.
Never been to one.
Kept making jokes about there not being any moshing..even though I got bumped enough and my foot stomped on.
There were some very talented artists there.
Unfortunately they got me thinking.
It’s the reason why I can’t be a part of the art scene on anything more than the fringe.

They talk about their feelings
They talk about the state of the world
They talk about the street people they see
They breathe insight into these things
To make you give a shit.
This only works when you haven’t
Been there
Done that

It’s one thing
To talk about what you’ve seen
It’s another thing
To talk about what you’ve done
Or what’s been done to you

Not acceptable to the public
Comes off as whining
Let the poet tell it
How it is

Ah fuck it.
I can’t do prose
Right now
All I can do
Is format
Text
To make it
Look
Like it wants to be

And after the slam?
I’m left with all of the ghosts and the memories…
Which I was already trying to fight off.
And I feel like a Vietnam Vet…
Oh wait, we don’t use “shell shock” anymore
We don’t use “operational fatigue” anymore either
As a matter of fact,
We don’t use my cool “post traumatic stress disorder” anymore either.
It’s gone on to some other fucking name I can’t remember
But I do remember that everyonce in a while I get a backfire on my soul
And it leaves me ducking for cover and doing many other stupid things

In the meantime I remember too much and so now it’s time for me to forget….
