if you grew up in the north...you know how annoying it is as a kid to have a cool costume all picked out only to have your mom ruin it by making you put on a winter coat and scarf and moon boots over it. how am i supposed to be a fairy/superhero/whatever with a coat covering it up??!?!?

I liked this game. I didn't like the movie so much.
Final Fantasy 7 had a lot of great characters that I used to draw a lot back when it came out. Cloud is fun to draw because of his crazy hair. And I always thought Seph was one of the best bad guys ever. I'm gonna try to give this a little color tomorrow.

I'm amazed at how many shapes a cat can get into. They're kinda like a slinky. They can be all compact one minute and stretched out the next.
My favorite cat pose is one that I call "fuzzy lump". My cat Jingle can usually be found laying around like this outside of my bedroom most mornings, no limbs to be seen. Just a gray fuzzy lump of a cat body. Sometimes she even curls her tail around her feet to make herself more of a lump. And she almost always looks supremely happy when laying around like this.
Ahhhh....to be as comfortable as a cat.

i went to see a hockey game tonight for the first time in a long time. the portland winter hawks vs. the medicine hat tigers!!!!.....portland lost. :(
i used to play roller hockey as a kid because it was the only kind of hockey i could afford. ice hockey is way expensive for a redneck kid from the woods of pennsylvania. it was tons of fun and i got to play with my brothers and even my sister in one league. i stunk at scoring goals and usually played defense, and our team lost most of our games, but i miss it.

Joe loves chipmunks. they're his favorite animal. it's not uncommon for us to go on a hike in the woods and hear him yell, "CHIPPY!!!" and run off. so today's post is dedicated to him.
we had a conversation one time about how funny it would be to see a fat chipmunk. and not just chubby...we're talking obese. i've seen some plump chipmunks, like the ones we used to feed peanut butter to when i worked at camp as a teenager. but never have i seen a really really REALLY fat one. i think it would be hilarious.

A character from my story that i've been trying to rework....i've called him Aidan for a long time but really thought that name never fit. he has a 'legitimate' shipping service that Sierra, Kai and Phoenix catch a ride on in one point of the story. i was trying to capture his very very self assured personality in this drawing.

finally mostly settled in Portland, Oregon. wow, what a fantastic city! so much better than dallas. the drive across the country was fun, the first couple of homeless weeks in the city were a blast! got to see a lot of the sights around the city, (saturday market, rose gardens, japanese gardens, multnomah falls...). and finally got a really nice place to live close to walking trails and starbucks. i think i can settle in here for a while. i hope...
