I creep out every single person I admire

I am horribly socially awkward. I don't know why but I find it excruciating to talk to people - especially if I admire them. I'm sorry if I creep you out! I'm nice! Really! I think! I hope!

Also, went to the Inkstuds interview with Dave Cooper today hosted by the beguiling. I hadn't seen much of Dave's stuff up until recently but I'm quickly falling in love with it. I just wish he was still making comics!


Also, Check out the below video. It's a beautifully shot video tour of the Six flags theme park in New Orleans. It closed when New Orleans was hit by hurricane Katrina and has since been left abandoned. It feels very post apocalyptic and the Godspeed you! Black emperor music to accompany it certainly adds to that feeling.

This especially gives me the chills after working in a theme park for so long. It feels so familiar, yet so broken. Good stuff!

Titanic, Sharker

Also, Here's a piece of fan art I made for Sam Spina's mini comic, Sharker. I liked the design and the comic was awesome so I couldn't resist! Sam was kind enough to send me some of his comics, so you should go and check them out yourself (and maybe even buy a couple!) over here.

Depressing Comix

Lisa has been trying to get me to watch this video for weeks. I don't know why I didn't until now but it totally made my day. I watched it like, 4 times in a row. You should watch it. It's super touching!

A couple of weeks ago I sent Chris Clavin some of my comics. In return he sent me an awesome package with a his new band Imperial Can's CD as well as a couple of split cassettes. It has been years since I've had a stereo so I to track down a tape player to listen to them. Really solid stuff!

I really like Chris Clavins solo songs because they feel more one off journal entries... only in songs. Not the kind of stuff that is played over and over but more put down on tape and forgotten. Really intimate songs.

Taxi Driver

Have you ever seen Taxi Driver? You should, it's great! It's one of my favorite movies for mood and atmosphere... a huge inspiration! Go watch it now! Preferably on the big screen!

Everything is fake

Turns out the prison was a set that was used in the film Chicago. Kinda neat.

Cry, Cry, Cry

Everything is beautiful

Super lazy weekend

We also watched this really awesome NFB film, The Necktie. It's one of the best animated shorts I've seen in a long time. Check out the cutout traditional animation in it... insane! Check it out!

[Edit] Lisa complimented me on my creative spelling of "Meringue" here. I actually tried to check it because I knew it had a weird spelling... but on google the first few results come back with the awful spelling I went with. Point is, yeah I know.

I bought some Oreos

You know how sometimes you have this idea... then you try to put it down on paper and it doesn't quite capture what you wanted it to? yeaaaah...

Short on ideas Pt. 2

Speaking of ideas, I think it’s a good idea for my friend Catherine to make more comics. Check out this comic she posted today – it’s AWESOME!! You should go her how awesome she is!

I carried that found book shelf for a good half hour on my walk home at 4am. Halfway through I was close to giving up... but man, I really needed a bookshelf! I was pretty drunk so I just pushed on through and got it in. It made a world of difference in how organized my room is. As a result I was able to make my room into a bit of a studio. I even put a drawing table in, so there shall be no excuses for not getting drawing done!

Pretty stoked about it!


The undead

I both love and hate the zombie genre. If you can even call it that. When it's done well it's pretty mind blowing stuff... on the other hand when it's not it's just awful violent stupidity.

A while ago I came across this punk band by the name of The Anorexic Olsen Twin. On their self titled LP they have a couple of songs about surviving the zombie apocalypse that I thought were really interesting, particularly the song By the time you read this letter. If you're into really awesome punk music with piano's Violins and cellos you should check it out.

Went out for dinner with Miguel. He was late.

Twenty seven

I turned 27 today. Pretty crazy!

Monday, November 01, 2010


Today I had some guy threaten to "punch my face in". I was moving some people in one of those buildings that you need to be buzzed up into. I was in the lobby when this guy gets buzzed in. Immediately he starts verbally abusing me for not letting him into the building. I was stunned because I only vaguely knew he was there because, y'know, I was working. I got out maybe 3 words trying to explain that this wasn't my building and that I didn't feel like it was my call to let people that I don't know it before he got right my face and started threatening me. I said "ok" and went back to work while he stormed off.

Point being, I was going to write a comic about that but decided not to because the situation was too stupid for words (or pictures, as is the case!).

Have a wonderful day,
