Day more day, then I'm done with this quarter.

This summer promises comic publisher rejections and a slim possibility of a job.

I'm excited.

Now for another edition of Spectacular Spectral Saturday!

Today I'm showing a bit more traditional work I suppose, a few doodles I did during my comics history course. While the course itself is terribly interesting, my mind wanders off into the realm of altering figure drawings.

These started out as regular figure drawings but quickly morphed into something more cyborgian. I'm pretty sure that's not a real word. Anyhoo, this is how I prefer to draw figures. When I get the time, making them mechanical beings is what I love to do.

This has been another short and sweet Spectacular Spectral Saturday. For more of my artwork please visit my not-so-updated Deviant Art site.

Playing the Wii is addictive, but man does my head hurt >.< I think it's the combination of an already hurty head and the fast movement of attempting to launch a bunny into a goal.

nonetheless, quite amusing.

Hrmm...I only have a few weeks of school left. This is weird.

I'm not ready for summer in the least.

So...what's up with Warner Bros promotion websites for the next Batman movie?

One for Harvey Dent and one for the Joker.

I'm all for strange promotion for Batman, but is that what Joker is really going to look like in the film?

Plus, where's mister two-face's other face? I want to see Harvey looking good and acid-washed crazy!


Man it's late.

I totally spent the entire day working on optimizing a CSS website for IE browsers.

My head hurts, but it's a good kind of hurt. One that tells me I'm done with the boring code part of the webdesign.

Website issues

Grr....I'm currently working on a website for a friend. Her site deals with Dolfie clothing.

Anyhoo, long story short, the CSS menu seems to be off in IE, 7 at least. It seems to work correctly in IE 6, with other issues of course.

mrph...I don't understand why I always seem to have trouble in web developing. I'm able to code pages correctly, but always have Browser issues.

Oh well. Once this site is done I'll post the link. I'm not really confident with it at the moment.

Hrmm...perhaps I should make this blog a little more picture-pretty. I'm an art student after all.

Okay, then I shall start this as the first Spectacular Spectral Saturday where I'll only talk about art-related issues here.

So to get this off and moving, here's my cat in a trivial pursuit box:

A photo manipulation piece I created last quarter for my Advanced Computer blah blha blah class.

I'm quite keen to work with Adobe Photoshop, it's my go-to programme for most everything graphics related. I know I know, I should dip into the vector goo sometime, but now I'm having too much fun with Photoshop.

At the moment I'm using the programme to redo a few panels on a secret comic submission I'm planning at the end of May *spooky!*. However, I've been greatly hindered by the fact that there is something terribly wrong with my scans.

I have no idea why, but each time I try to open my .jpeged scanned pages in Photoshop, I get an "ICC cannot be found" message. When I click continue Photoshop freezes and doesn't give way to the power of my mouse. Quite bothersome really.

None of this has to do with my silly content box-cat, but it's been on mind and therefore art relevant.

My roommate was able to get in touch with the fabulous illustrator, Gerald Scarfe. He actually emailed her back. She’s rather estactic right now and I don’t blame her. Her teacher was also pretty excited, asking if she could email him again and get him to come to school to lecture.

I’d go to that so fast…

In other art school news, I am the proud owner of several bits of charcoal/paint/expensive paper that I shall never use past figure drawing. That’s the trouble with being a Sequential major, you have to get pretty creative with your supplies if you want to use them up.

On the plus side, I have adopted several no-photo pencils from my boyfriend’s former roommate. So yay to that!

Lonely Yogurt

Okay Okay, I know it’s late and I should be asleep but dammit…I’m not.

We have three weeks left in the quarter. Then, it ends. My fridges (you can just call me Gally
2 fridges *hellloooo Monty Python nerds*), and Jamie’s (a total of 4 between us)shall spend the summer in my roommate’s apartment. There they will enjoy the benefits of air condition, Pink Floyd music and the occasional Myster Science Theatre 3000 viewing. I’m sure they will have a more fulfilling summer vacation than me.

Nonetheless, I shall keep these fridges running while I’m here, just so they don’t feel too lonely. Even though there is but a single cup of yogurt in one. Poor dear. At least the yogurt keeps it company.

As far as work goes, my C.O.W. story was today compared to Avatar: the last airbender. Mind you, I have never seen that show. I cannot bring myself to watch its American Anime style *ick*. However, as my friends who do religiously watch the show have told me, my story is nothing like that. The only similarity we share is splitting the world up into 4 compass quadrants. But screw that kid. He who critiques me spent a good 4 minutes talking about his Sumerian God bullshit story. He wants comparison? That sounded exactly like most Greek/Roman God tales, where incest is rampant as well as jealously and vengeance. Nyahh.


First and foremost, I feel like a very muffin today. I don’t quite know what that means, but nonetheless that is how I feel.

Next, I am currently sitting in a very dark room, only comforted by the light of three monitors. One that I am actually using. The boy is on the other two, working on creating his own face in a 3-D format. It’s rather impressive I must say. I’m very proud of his 3-D skills.

I don’t have much to say as an introductory post. I suppose this is my public blog, where I shall talk about things publicly and feel no shame in letting my soul go to the monster that is the internet.
