So I've been getting plus en plus into
comic books... And also manga, but moreso comic books and comicbookculture
[sic]. And I've been inspired to start drawing again, but leaning
more toward comic book art and less in the direction of artsy-fartsy
art. Not that there's anything wrong with it.
I attribute this new focus to a couple of really
well-developed websites. First is Polykarbon,
from which I learned how to color lineart manga-style; and Burn,
a very well-designed Flash site which gave me some great ideas
of how I'm going to develop the comic I'm going to develop...
Hang on, I have to use the facilities.
Back. Allright, it's time I better start studying
for my midterm exams. I need to do well in French and History
if I wanna bring up the lousy grades I've been getting on account
of the lousy teachers I have. I'm gonna go shower and then study...
Maybe take my car out for a wash afterward and then go to the
bank and browse around Bedrock
Comics. There's an Incredible Hulk shirt there I've been meaning
to buy, plus I just wanna look around the store for a little while,
Oh... Happy New Year.
Quote of the Day:
island of Madripoor. A jewel of the pacific. Also one of its cesspools.
Madripoor's one of the great melting pots of the world, a place
for the very rich and the very poor. A place for scum... For folks
like me. In Madripoor, people only know as much about me as I
care to tell them. Certainly not the truth. Not that I was once
a Canadian citizen named Logan, a one-time heroic adventurer,
long since presumed dead. Not that I have the senses-- and the
nature-- of an animal. Not that my body can heal virtually any
wound or illness. In Madripoor, I'm known as "Patch"...
