I logged into my DeviantArt account tonight for the first time in awhile; I had two new messages that people had added some of the stuff I’ve uploaded there to their favorites. One person added my college-era Freddy Krueger; another the Boba Fett triptych I drew for my friend Joel earlier this year. I’m a [...]
Last night, I spent about two hours further beating my face against the wall that is the build issue I’ve been having in Xcode, as I try to learn this whole computer programming thing. After a point, I quit and started drawing. I kicked out about four pages of heads, working on positioning and proportions. [...]
I don’t even have mine yet (this week, hopefully), so it’s hard to get too worked up over these “why the iPad sucks” posts that seem to be everywhere now. This one popped up on an eWeek update I got today; it’s from last Thursday (April 22): 10 Reasons Why an iPad Is Not For [...]

I started reading a book tonight, “Dynamic Anatomy: Revised and Expanded” by Burne Hogarth. In the introduction, Hogarth uses this sentence: “The Augean stables of the mind would be ready for the Tiber.” I have no idea what the hell that means.
So, for the time being, I’m going to pretend to take this iPhone development thing seriously. As such, I have started a separate blog for all ‘stuff’ related to that so I can keep it in one place and not spam up this blog with posts (assuming there are posts, that is). So, visit it [...]
