Greetings From Roanoke, VA Pt. 5! (In Praise of FHIF)

I just watched 4 back-to-back episodes of Foster's Home of Imaginary Friends. Needless to say, I enjoy it very much. I gotta give much praise to Craig McCracken (creator of The Powerpuff Girls) for creating this hilarious little series, which is not only funny, but very aesthetically pleasing.

That settles it. I gotta get digital cable when I get home. Me and Cartoon Network are inseparable.

Greetings From Roanoke, VA Pt. 4!

  • The homesickness is setting in a little.
  • I've been living like a porn, not even Fleshbot since the 12th of this month. I'm wasting away! Okay, not really.
  • My aunt and uncle watch Fox News. I won't hold it against them.
  • Two more aunts have arrived, so my mom and them are shopping their asses off, leaving me here. It's cool though...I might go to Hardee's later. Monster Thickburger, here I come!
  • I've changed my mind about something. Rachael Ray can get it. I don't know why I didn't dig her before. She's got a nice ass. And that mile-wide mouth of, I betcha she makes a great "oh" face. Wow...that was dirty.

Greetings From Roanoke, VA Pt. 3!

I don't think I mentioned it, but I've become entranced by the OAV (Original Animation Video) entitled Furi Kuri (aka Fooly Cooly or FLCL). I remember seeing the DVDs or videos around (possibly at HMV or Comics America), but I never got into 'em until now, thanks to good ol' Adult Swim. There were only 6 episodes, and I caught the final one last Saturday (uh...Sunday morning, actually). It's fuggin' nuts. The story defies description. I gotta cop me them DVDs when I get back home.

Greetings From Roanoke, VA Pt. 2!

I've been drawing everyday. I haven't felt this good artistically in a long time.
I'm dying to share some of this with you, but it'll have to wait. I wanna do it up nice.

Greetings From Roanoke, VA!

Yup, I'm alive. How are you doin'?
Been drawing and reading a lot, and watching way too much Adult Swim. I'm hooked.
S-Cry-Ed is over, so I'm going to bed. Hope y'all are doin' a-ok.

This kick ass piece comes to me courtesy of Derek aka nervousonion, one of my peoples. Dude, you fuckin' rule.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned it yet, but there's the possibility of a cardboard-based art show happening, and both Derek and I have signed on. I'm crazy stoked for it, especially after getting this.

Oh yeah...I leave for Roanoke tomorrow, so y'all might not hear a whole lot from me for a few weeks. Well, we'll see. Now that I have a kick-ass flickr™ account, I'll be able to share the photos properly once I get my ass back here.

Troy! I ain't ferget ya, dude. I'll put that P & C comp together for you once I get back, plus that Nein poster.

If you look to the right...'ll see that I've added my flickr™ photostream to this here blog. Yo, flickr™ is crazy fun.

Okay, so I'm glad City TV is around.

Not only because fine-ass Adrienne Silver will be doing the weather every weeknight, but because SexTV is back on basic cable! I missed that show so much.

Friday, August 05, 2005

Hello, CityTV...*sigh*
I knew it was coming, but I didn't know that fine-ass Bridget Brown was leaving. She was the latest in a long line of MTN/A-Channel hotties that I had a thing for, and I'm sad to see her go. (That list includes Alix Michaels, Kimberly Carroll, and Stephanie Sherlock.) The one realy good thing about this identity change, is that Adrienne Silver is the new weather anchor, which pretty much guarantees that I'll be checking out their 10 o'clock news broadcast...or wheneverthehell it's on.

Her ass is incredible.

Neat little photo essay.

I Don't Wanna Grow Up, 2005 • graphite, Staedtler Pigment Liner and Photoshop CS2®

It's probably obvious, but this was inspired by both the Peter Pan Broadway tune and the Tom Waits song (from Bone Machine, which I still have to purchase). This dude is vainly hanging on to whatever remnants of his childhood, but realizes he has to rock that suit n' tie so he can bring home the bacon. And he resents it.

Here's the original:

I drew it during a couple of my breaks at my incredibly shitty job.

*sigh*...there I go again. Okay, it's no secret that I hate what I do. To me, the true measure of success is to make a living doing what you really want to do. I'm clearly not at that point. But it's coming...I'm almost sure of it.
I'm told, "hey, it's just a job." True, and it pays pretty well. But what if you think of throwing yourself in front of a truck before heading there? What if it's incredibly thankless? That shit ain't healthy. All I know is, when I get back from Roanoke, the job search is ON.

But, I digress...*ahem*...
I didn't like the face on this dude; it wasn't sour enough. So, I came up with a few more and chose my fave:

A few choices.

As a bonus, here's one of the pieces I came up with for the Blam! show, Geriatric Lad:

A'ight? Peace, y'all.
