It’s about the 2nd week of classes here at ETSU, and I’m finding that I’m talking to my sister a lot more. Specifically online with Skype; even talking to my brother and sometimes my Mom. It’s been a real interesting experience.
I don’t know when or where it happened, but I got into the habit of trying to sometimes draw my sister’s colloquialisms that she’d mention. One of these was her complaining how she didn’t want to eat squash curry, saying how it was “looking back at her”. My mind got into work and produced this image.
One evening while I was at my apartment, I decided to have a chat with my sister on Skype, listening to her trying to write some fiction. Some villainous character of hers was supposed to make a resurgence but it was failing spectacularly. He was made akin to the “Phoenix”, as he was supposed to make such a comeback having been defeated.
As you can see my mind sometimes goes off in different directions. I visualized this occurrence as such, and sent the doodle over. I don’t recall how exactly it was received, but the effort was noted, nonetheless.
Thanks to a tad bit of surplus with my new job, I decided to hunt down some fan merchandise on my favorite anime besides Gundam, Martian Battleship Nadesico! I had found this silk-screen poster about a week ago, and was just surprised that someone in the US had it (most of the Nadesico stuff I see is overseas). Ruri-chan arrived in one piece and now sits on my bedroom wall, and belongs quite nicely to the decor!
I also was excited about this a bit, as this was my first silk screen poster at all. So go me, I guess.
Sorry it’s not much to look at, but I’m finally here. Time to make this place home, I guess. But I have to vacuum first. You know, making sure the place is clean and all that.
While heading out this afternoon, my brother and I had the exact same bug on our iPod Touch. We’d flip it horizontally, but when we stood it back up, the bar would stay on the long side of the screen. I found it extremely funny that the exact same thing happened, at the same time doing the same thing. Hopefully you found it as well.
I can’t believe I’m the only one in the family that sees these things, and decides to take a picture of them. But here you go. When we visited a meeting to get Internet in rural places outside of Atlanta, I found this in the tree next to the entrance door. Dad scolded me for taking the photo, but I knew that was the 2nd highlight of my trip to catch that nonsense. Someone noticed!
I’m still fooling around with the Wacom tablet. I came to the point to try this; I guess I wanted to try making some sort of comics after seeing some fan ones on deviantART float around. It took me ages to come up with this; I think I need a new computer that doesn’t lag when I draw.
