New drawings. These involve pandas.
Since I’ve gotten older, I’ve started “re-appreciate” elements of my childhood. Noticing the details I may’ve missed or nuances I never much paid attention to.
Comics is a strong one but only specific flavors/variations. For example, offshoots of series like Curse of the Spawn and I Kill Giants I really go for. I’m hesitant to delve too much into the likes of X-Men, etc as it’s fairly fantastical and geeky in ways I’m not much up for.
I find the “mainstream” art I like are renditions by fans like this Rogue sketch. http://jakewyattriot.tumblr.com
I bought the first iPhone as soon as it was available and have always had a Mac. In the past 2 months, I’ve successfully swapped everything from my iPad to my personal Mac to Galaxy S3, Nexus 7 and Chomebook.
There’s a definite learning curve but ultimately, being able to customize and have all my data/photos synced to the cloud without that much thinking has been pretty sweet. Nexus 4 next.
“Mephistopheles (Andreas Teuber) reached a new pitch of intensity in body odour. It is all imagined things dead—rotten seas, decaying books in the tropics, rats trapped dead in drainpipes, forgotten fish, cheese that has become flesh. Between his toes … is a sort of fungus growth that threatens to turn his feet into webbed feet unless he bathes in the next couple of years.

would you ‘kill’ a robot that was begging for its life? That’s what this NPR bit explores. It’s opened up more questions than answers for me on Robot ‘rights’ and how far advanced will robots become where ‘killing’ may prove harder than one would think.

Joyously macabre: The Euthanasia Coaster
Starting a new art project where I draw my friends into photos of famous hip-hop artists. My first is with Gucci Mane (fishing) and my friend Larry. My goal is to have one a week.
Questions/comments/suggestion/differences/feedback all welcomed.
I’m interested in the tension between indepth, HD everything, cinematic dragon slaying found on consoles like XBOX and PS3 while a small contingent of homebrew gamers focus on gameplay geared towards the simple and the nostalgic. Since they don’t have millions of dollars and the human resources found in major gaming studios, their only path is humor, avoiding taking themselves seriously and an experience that’s easily accessed.
Mustache King Adventure is one such example.
