2008

For Frail, the first thing that came to mind was the baby cowbird I raised in 2008. The thing was real small and weak, and I became quite attached to it as it grew. It felt odd because at the time the pets we had never really wanted to be around me, and this hatchling would stay close and always be looking at me. So I think it the theme.

Around December of 2007, I was browsing Big Lots when I found a clearance CD of Sid Meier’s: Civilization 3. I had seen this game in action a year earlier, loving how the game played and never had gotten the chance to own it for myself. For $3, it was a bargain.

About two months later, I found the Gold edition in Target for $20. Nice cardboard box, 3 CD’s, even a manual. This had two expansion packs and even a map editor, something that my original game didn’t have.

A couple years back, I was trying to get a story project going, based on some friends I had known at the time. I had even roped said friends into doing a cosplay with me, which turned out okay I think. I kind of made OC’s based on them and had started to put a faint storyline together.

 

Unfortunately it kind of bombed and I just swept it under the rug for a bit, but I recently decided to try to bring it back to life and reinvent it. While I successfully remade it with different characters, one character that still stuck with me that I wanted to keep, and that was based on Pri, the Steampunk mechanic.

 

Amy Clark was doing commissions at the time, so we both happily worked out a commission showing her character in a new, better style. I was real happy with it, and was able to successfully reinvent this new version into someone I had thought of.

 

Lineart by Amy Clark. Character’s namesake based off of Pri. Coloring by me.

I’ll give getting to to around to places like Animazement some credence; it helped me just a bit become more outgoing and feel like I had something in common with somebody. So what does that have to do with a room shot?

 

Because I redecorated the room to what it is. I bought certain furniture, used paint leftover from my parent’s store to give it a facelift, and even bought some recessed lights to go into the ceiling. The result was this fairly attractive room, that had some styling to feng shuei and a tad splash of new age.

 

I had cleaned up my room pretty good as I was starting school again, and I decided to show you guys what it looks like before it got messy again.

 

And yes, while that view may be physically lovely (which it is sometimes, I admit), the lack of communication and connection with the outside world makes it one of the most depressing and soul-crushing vistas at the same time. You can’t communicate or reach out to people here, and it isn’t a place for a “non-local” college student needing friends, a girlfriend and a place to sink roots to start his life. Just my two cents.

This only came about because I was left with this Telus paper to doodle with. As I was getting into the Zelda fandom, I really did like the idea of Zelda going around with Link on his adventures. So this idea of him seeing his villainous bunny, makes him wonder if there’s a powerup waiting for him after defeating it.

This was something silly I did with my newfound Zelda figurine I got from Animazement earlier this year. I found that if I was careful, I could have her mount Link’s shied on her arm, and kind of pose with the Master Sword with the other. I didn’t have the other camera to snap a photo, so I just used my flip phone to grab the shot.

This may not seem like much, but this is the last time I played chess with someone on a chess board like this. It was at my cousin’s house, at night and was challenged by said cousin for a game of chess. So I accepted. In a strange turn of events, we did reach a sort of stalemate, shaking hands on it before calling it a draw.

 

Man, it’s been forever since I played chess with someone.
