HI EVERYONE

This has been an....interesting year.

SO, I DREW THIS THING AND IT'S 32 PAGES LONG and it's not cat piano BUT IT'S A COMIC AND MAYBE YOU WANT TO READ IT? i dunno


Here is a comic that I put up on a comic site thing.

I've finished the whole thing, but I'm uploading it slowly in the hopes that I'll be able to finish drawing an epilogue/author's note before I finish uploading. It's pretty impossible for me to separate the making of this particular comic with the real life events that surrounded it, and I asked Spy if it was okay to talk about it, so it bears mentioning.

If you're watching my journal, you probably already know that Spy has a spine tumor. There isn't much I can say about it that hasn't already been said: it's awful, I'm sorry, fuck everything. In this context, I bring it up because I found out right around when I had finished the script for this comic and was in the midst of drawing it, and I think it ended up turning out a little weird. So, that's what I'll try to make a note of in an epilogue. Look....forward to it?
First installment of Let's Goal!! I say that because I plan to do more, you see. Like more than one. Excite!

In which I sit down and methodically design this and that for the comic, like setting and props and characters and other important shit. I know that sounds FASCINATING, but well, I like sharing things and often sharing leads to someone saying something really helpful. And because I can't help it, there are also comics thrown in there. I am incapable of just doing design work there must be gags

This time: Pulp comic cars and comics about giving your car the proper name.Collapse )

Goal 1: Props - car designs *CHECK*
Goal 2: Props - guns
Goal 3: Setting - AU1 bug neighborhood
Goal 4: Etc

Order of goals subject to change.

Spy, I am winking at you. Can you see it? oh it would help if I had eyes

WHEEE

I have to bolt out of Starfleet in a minute because class is starting soon, but I just got an email and

YAY I PASSED THE CBEST

For those not in the know, the CBEST is one of the two tests I need to take to be a teacher, alongside getting my credential (actually, I need the CBEST to get into the credential program in the first place). I am told that to pass the CBEST one only needs to be human, but dammit it's a test that I passed and I'm going to be excited about it anyway.

EXCITE

HOW SHALL I REWARD MYSELF, LIVEJOURNAL?

Cat Piano Page Nine: Porcelain Frogs

This seems to be a strangely productive week, despite the fact that I have gotten no homework done. But I studied for my teachering test. oh and I am reading a depressing comic about Palestine for class

anyway

No more striped rooms, okay? Why on earth did I do thatCollapse )

Why did I make that chair floral print
that is the chair he's going to sit down on in the next page, isn't it




It went to New York with my parents this morning. I hope this will remind my brother that he needs to show his daughter Yellow Submarine at some point.

Autobiographical Comics

For comics class I had to draw a comic about something that happened to me that was true. This is probably true? I keep asking people if this actually happened, but then they laugh at me.

Here is a comic about an imaginary time in my life that actually happened. Also, there was porn.

On Monday, my comics professor had this to say as we brought up the webpage for my comic:
"Hahaha. Whose handiwork is this?!"

He also had this to say: "I've been sick lately and I lost my voice. I am just getting out of, as my son calls it, the Christian Bale stage."

We don't discuss each others' comics until tomorrow. Wish me luck?!

People who can't read the cookie

IMPORTANT BULLETIN: DO NOT DRINK YOUR KOKS WITHOUT FRAPPING IT.

DON'T DO IT.

The Pharagonesians will think very poorly of you and will probably not be all that inclined to help after you make such a simple mistake, and also your face will explode in green blob and eventually you might be a 3D installation piece.

In other words, I read a little Moebius this morning with my coffee.



Alex
did you catch the pun in my title
puns are maybe supposed to make more sense, I know.





Dear Everyone in the World: Tokeeki.

TOKEEKI



Possibly the greatest Japanese pun, and it is now my birthday cake. Here, feel free to grab a digital slice. Or even just stick your finger in it: it is not like I'll notice.

I did not come up with this pun, but basically it is

tokei = clock

keeki = cake

tokei + keeki = tokeeki.


Additionally, this amused me very much:



My folks gave me 121 dollars for my birthday, exactly. Dad had to help me along with this because I haven't taken a math class in three years, but

-The factors of 22 are 2 and 11.
-11 squared is 121.

Icon may or may not be taken from a very adorable birthday card a snark received. How does Marlowe know what I sing in the shower?
I made a thing for composition class! This time my "theme" is making comic panels into single-page compositions in this and that way. Also something to do with song lyrics.



Here is the full thing. Marlowe makes a stop in animeverse to save his theoretical daughter from herself.Collapse )

Dude paper cut outs continue to be the greatest thing under the sun. Already some of my classmates have said they want to do it for their next project and I'm like "WHEE I'LL HELP IF YOU NEED ME" and they're like "GOOD BECAUSE WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU DOING AND HOW IS SWIVELING XACTO WHAT" and then I show them how the swiveling xacto swivels and everyone is like
WHOOOOOOAAAAAAA *matrix backflips*

swiveling xacto, my greatest treasure
