Felicia Day

I am so excited for Felicia Day‘s new series based in Dragon Age. The trailer alone makes her look so badass!

The line art for this took a few days. Part of it had to do with the slowness of doing it digitally, part of it had to do with using the tiny screen of my laptop while I was waiting for my desktop computer to be fixed (and it isn’t yet, they can’t figure out why it keeps hanging. Probably it is a software issue of some kind…). I also wasn’t sure about the color (Laptop screen is too shifty!), and I also couldn’t do much after a certain point because it got beyond what the laptop’s memory could handle. I finally got my system back yesterday, and polished the background art a bit.

Ramble ramble. ANYWAY… moving on.


I’m busying getting a new computer running and sorted out, so I’ve been a little inaccessible. Not helping my productivity is that I had to send it back for repairs. I’ll have something fancy to show you once it gets back! In the meantime…


Does anyone have any good website suggestions for topic involving developing board games? Specifically tile based things like Settlers of Catan and Carcassone? I’m not sure how to go about coming up with rules and stuff.

So, I’ve been doing this Spoonflower thing for a while, and for Steamcon III I might be getting at least one article of clothing made with fabric I design, and my thought is about maybe making an exclusive design you would have to order from me directly. I dunno, it could just be a passing thought.

I would like 2011 to be the year I finally get software upgrades. I have no idea how to do this, the full Adobe suite is CRAZY ‘spensive. The priority keeps rising, though. I’m still using Photoshop 7, Illustrator 10, and thankfully I at least have InDesign CS2. I do not have Flash, or other media editing softwares. I also would love a font editor- I have none, and have just been relying on free generators, and man is that problematic for actually getting things kerned and proportional. (Not that I don’t still have hardware on my creative wishlist, like a new tablet – mine is almost a decade old and I’ve worn grooves into it – and camera – not so old, but has a few totally dead sensor spots.)

I’d like for 2011 to end up with me having made a lot of paintings. There is a problem here, in terms of equipment more friendly to disability (I’m looking into that already, though), and cost of supplies. What do y’all think of Kickstarter?

Upcoming Events!

I’ll be at Emerald City Comic Con, and I am already spoken for during the following times:

Friday: 2:30pm – 7:oopm
Saturday: 12:00pm – 5:00pm
Sunday: 11:00am – 3:00pm

I also have the good fortune to be attending 2 concerts in March, Paul and Storm and Marian Call. SO EXCITING! I am so, so grateful. With so much time spent trying to take care of my medical issues, and so much time too broke to do anything, being able to get out and enjoy life once in a while is so important to my sanity. Gifts of “stuff” not at all equal to gifts of time-spent-happy.

Anywho… wish me good fortune and creativity this year, eh? :)



Marc Maron

I wanted to illustrate the kerfuffle from the recent interview Marc Maron had with Gallagher. Gallagher is… he’s like every old man on the bus who wants desperately to drop some knowledge, but is nearly incoherent and also very, very angry at everyone ELSE for, well, everything. You know, just like me in about 10 years *ba-dum-tch*. Except I probably still wouldn’t be willing to make racist, sexist, offensive jokes for money. Yes, Marc Maron absolutely did get angry and accusatory and became a rude host, but I can completely understand it. I wouldn’t want to be patronized and yelled at for a half hour either. I know it was a rough episode to listen to, but like pretty much all of Maron’s podcasts, there is so much to be learned not just about comedy, but about people and human interaction. Even when it doesn’t go quite as planned, I often feel better and more positive after listening.

Nicholas Brendon

Sometimes I feel like Hollywood missed an opportunity by not casting Nicholas Brendon as Superman ever. He can do sweet, and guileless so well. Obviously I’ll always have a soft spot for Xander, but I also enjoyed the character of Seth on Kitchen Confidential. I wish that series had gotten at least a full season. (And at least I can get my John Francis Daley fix on Bones.) I’m looking forward to his panel at ECCC this year!

The Guild Stiff Breeze

A little fan art of “The Guild”, featuring Amy Okuda, Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton (hey, he got 2 fan arts this week!). I call this one “Stiff Breeze”. *cough*


Hourly Comic 2011

I participated in Hourly Comics Day yesterday! This was my effort last year. I spent a little more time polishing it this year, which is why you didn’t get it until today.

Also, to be fair, there was also arguing on the internet, but I thought it might be boring to draw it again. *cough*
