…college football begins this week. Kansas State vs UCLA on Saturday; there are still about a thousand tickets left, according to the alma mater. I wish I was closer to Manhattan so I could go. I haven’t seen a K-State football game live since the 2001 Cotton Bowl, which sucks – I miss football Saturdays [...]
I had a pretty good “This Week in Twitter” post cooking up on my laptop; I was trying to compose it in a trial of MarsEdit to see if I wanted to take the plunge and buy that thing for managing the ol’ blog, but it decided to eat about five days’ worth of updates [...]
I want to start a new Lego Gaga tonight; I might do this red carpet dress from this year’s Grammy’s. The Hello Kitty one was really fun because of how colorful it was, and this seems like a solid followup.
I don’t post about work stuff very often here because, well, it’s work and the other stuff I post about here is fun. But I did two things today that I thought were fun, so I wanted to share them. First, this silly little image is going to be a handout at Bemidji’s Women’s Expo; [...]
Somebody scanned and posted JPEGs of Charlton Comics’ “The Comic Book Guide for the Artist • Writer • Letterer” from 1973. I made a handy-dandy PDF of the images for easier consumption. Download it if you wish; it even includes the old Code of the Comic Magazine Association of America, which is a great read [...]
It’s been a pretty good four day run or so for movie watching at Casa del Bartlett. Saturday, I finally got a chance to hit the theater to catch “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and I absolutely loved it. Visuals, music, everything; it was a wonderful movie. I’d definitely go see it in the theaters [...]
I have come to rather enjoy myself on Twitter; this is a brief look at the best stuff I saw there this week from the folks I follow. Sunday Rick Remender (@Remender) “I don’t say it enough, but you’re all terrible monsters. Nature made many sad mistakes in each of you. Down with nature!” Rick [...]
I’m going to try again to kick out a few sketchbook pages tonight, and hopefully will come up with some results I’m more pleased with. I’m going to switch reference books, just to change things up a little, and see if that helps. I need mannikin practice, and I really like the look of the [...]
Mel went out with some friends last night, so I sat down and tried to kick out a couple of pages of drawing practice in my sketchbook. I did get the two pages in, but everything I tried to draw was *terrible*. Everything was a step in the wrong direction from the things I was [...]
I posted two new comic book reviews over at The Terrordrome this evening: G.I. Joe: Cobra #7 G.I. Joe: Origins #18 Check them out if you wish.
