Cool widget about cars

I don't get into cars, or Range Rovers, for that matter, but I thought this was cool, since it makes me feel like I work security in a parking garage...

San Diego comic con 2009

One of these days I might make it to San Diego for the annual convention, as part of my December Sun book. I've been looking at the convention site, and it's a sensory overload just looking at the site, without even setting foot on the convention floor!

One of the cool things being offered is a limited edition fine art print of TRON concept artwork. I've seen some of this on the jacket to the TRON dvd, so it's cool to finally see the full image. TRON is one of my favorite films, as both a remarkable scifi film, a corny film, and an all-ages film, all rolled into one!

Someday San Diego, maybe. But mustering the resources to get out there is another thing entirely.

Entrecard and ALMOST hit 300 drops, until...

I've been trying to hit 300 drops with Entrecard, and I was really close, too, to hitting my first 300, when the clock hit 11 (central) and my totals rolled back to zero. Sigh...

Billy Leavell's "Ray Rocket" meets "Archie" part 5

Page 5, the final page of the Ray Rocket saga. Shameless usage of David Bowie (with nod at the end of the story). I think I was just really big into his music at the time or something...

Billy Leavell's "Ray Rocket" meets "Archie" part 2

Page 2 of the Ray Rocket story. The art now goes into a faux-Archie style... not a very good faux-Archie style, but hey, I was jus having fun. Archie is one of those few comic titles you can find on the shelves of Walmart, and I've wondered if I could ever draw something like this professionally (the answer: no.)

Billy Leavell's "Ray Rocket" meets "Archie" part 1

I drew this awhile ago for an APA fanzine that I'm part of called Alpha-Omega. This story is involving three characters: "Ray Rocket", a character created and illustrated by Billy Leavell (whom I got permission to use for this story), Archie characters, and not-so-vague references in the story to a David Bowie tune that most everyone should know...

This was in a one-shot, all-for-fun story and it was a fun exercise in drawing characters I've never drawn before. I'll be posting more pages shortly...

The Precinct

I found this while doing some background images searches for a comic I'm drawing now: this is actually pretty cool. It's a site advertising off-Hollywood sets that can be rented for films, such as hospital, airplane and police station. Pretty cool, actually. So if you're making a low-budget film, you could just pay to rent the studio for your police scene. Check it out... link

There I fixed it

I site I've been enjoying, with a lot of very silly do-it-yourself work, is There I fixed it. So many of the entires are hilarious, and, sadly, could have been things that I would have thought of doing as well. Worth checking out.

Fun flash game! (if Flash was working properly on my PC)

Problems galore with Flash on my PC lately. Ah, maybe it's all for the better, as Flash apps just tend to be huge time drains. Here's a Flash game that I bet is fun, if I could get it to work properly...

Rolly-Polly Robot

Somewhere I've got notes stored away for an elaborate shooter game, and this would be one of the characters in it. After having drained a considerable amount of soul energy into 3D shooters over the years, I've got a number of ideas that I would love to see incorporated into a game someday. I've written some stories and designed a handful of characters that, if December Sun ever takes off financially (hahahahaha!) I'd make the investment to see this game into reality (if only for the purpose of making a game that I'd enjoy playing.)

For now, it's just an idea in the back of my mind...

Snake Island

Creepy stuff over at National Geographic (I'm mixed on my opinion of NG. I think they do some good stuff, but I know I've read some questionable things about some of their reports in the past, plus seen an example of bad photoshopping they did with an image, but I'm getting off topic...)

Snake Island, or the small Brazilian island of Queimada Grande, is a freakish island uninhabited by humans, but instead populated by venomous golden lancehead vipers. Per NG's statistics "there’s one golden lancehead here per square meter (1.2 square yards)". So you can't step somewhere without stepping on one.

This is an island I'll avoid.

Top Jobs and Career Trends

No idea where my job is going lately (actually, it's going offshore) so I find articles like this one on top job trends to be handy and informative.

Here's another handy article on dream jobs (but alas, the list does not include "super hero"). Being a film critic would be fun, but it would probably drain the novelty of watching films away (plus for every decent film, you've got to sit through a dozen turkeys.)

You know, I think this too, every time I'm picking up a frozen pizza...

Expanding Gummi Bears?

I found this disturbing image on this site, featuring a gummi bear as it appears after soaked. Creepy to consider what one's stomach looks like after eating a bag of these things.
