finalz suck

Just finished my latest round of classes yesterday, turned this in for my final in design. Not as good as I could have hoped, but decent, I think.
I started drawing a new comic. As soon as I get a buffer of about a week or so, I think I'll start posting them. Not here, tho, but I promise I'll link it.


kittenus esplodicus!

So though a complex series of events that are not entirely clear to me, we now own a pair of kittens, in addition to our other cat, Snickers. They are about 6 weeks old now, and in addition to not being very smart they are also cute.

This is Crème (we had been calling him Tubby until we decided on a name.) He's a little slow, but cute and snuggly. Also we think he's part albino, and he doesn't see very well because of it (albino animals are usually blind or deaf). Also his eyes glow red instead of the normal kitty yellow/green, which is pretty cool if you ask me.

The other one is named Turtle. She's a lot more clever (and smaller) than her older brother. She happened to be the alpha of the litter, and gets into everything. She also does not like to hold still for pictures. At all. This was the best shot I could get.

Snickers of course is annoyed at both of them. It's really funny to hear him growl at them when he is eating. It's roughly the equivolent of what a zombie gargling jello would sound like. Not even kidding. I think mostly he's just really confused at what the hell these tiny little non-cats are.
Like I said, they are really squirmy. And Crème's eyes really do glow red. It would be scary if he wasn't so dumb. And please excuse my underpants; I normally wear a belt. And a shirt, but that's a different matter.

metal fish can still swim

I think I could have done a better job with the lighting on this one. I need to play with that feature a bit more. I'm pretty happy with this one, otherwise.
On another note, at some point I need to go back and stick labels on all of my stuff. Probably should have started with that. Bugger.


convenient laziness

I've been thinking today, I don't really listen to music on my hard drive anymore. Since I got high-speed internet, I've never taken the trouble to build a decent playlist of music I like. There are so many good streaming radio stations (somaFM, DI, OCremix) that I just sit down, turn one on, and go.
It's kind of interesting, really. The reason I used to listen to downloaded music (back when napster was free) rather than streaming was because my dailup *shudder* and crappy computer couldn't handle it. I remember starting some downloads before bed, then waking up the next morning to see if they were done. I only do that for extremely large downloads now. And even then, it's more like go take a walk, come back and it's done. Things back then took FOR-EV-ER, internet wise. I did learn something of patience, back then. Now, if my net hiccups, I get ticked off and glare at the modem.
I really can't help but wonder the impact of increasingly faster technology on the younger generations.
On the other hand, if all of the wifi and cell phone signals all stop functioning simultaneously, people my age will be as gods. Woo!

This is a pattern I made for my design class. I've been told that it looks like fabric and also razor wire. Comfy.
