Self portrait

Once upon a time a friend of mine got married.

Now I don’t know much about weddings, but I’m told presents are as important as presence, and sometimes more so. I think it has something to do with mitigating curses, but maybe I made that up.

There are so many options when it comes to wedding presents. I’ve learned from movies that toasters are always a good one. You can never have too many toasters. Or, you know, a towel or kitchen knife.

Useful. Decorative. But when it comes right down to it, boring. I decided to investigate further, and I’m glad I did because it turned up an unexpected fact. Turns out paintings are valid and even respectable wedding gifts.
I know! Imagine my surprise.

For various reasons (which I’d elaborate on if this post didn’t seem too wordy as is), a painting fit perfectly and moreover is what I decided to present.

Save the date

Apparently it’s a thing. News to me, but what do I know about weddings? Very, very little is what I know about weddings!

I did two save-the-date designs for Matt and Erin. They are getting married, not sure if you knew.

Judo is not for teeth but for humans

I was working on this three by six foot banner for Tsang Dentistry, when I got one of those not enough memory to perform this task errors! So ha! to anyone who thought 12GB of RAM was excessive!

Unrelatedly, the banner was for a judo tournament, but other than that I don’t know much. I kept everything as large as possible because who knows what the average viewing distance will be?

A question or a comic

Ugh, Mel’s style is so hard! I don’t really get how to do it.

Also i think I know what has been wrong with my colouring lately and the answer might be laziness. So that is good and also bad! The best kind of hypothesis.

Studio sketchy update!

Oh, man. I ran out of time. So many interruptions today!

I wanted to spend more time on shading/expressions/backgrounds, but even more I wanted to get it up before 5pm. That is why it looks like a small child shaded it. Oh well!

A spider is watching me from its prison of glass and i do not enjoy it

JT enjoys chainfactor.

I injured my wrist a while ago. I’m not completely sure how. At some indistinct point after that fall during ultimate, my back, wrist, and ankle began to hurt – but all on my left side. This is weird because I fell on my right side. That is where all the scrapes and bruises are. Sometimes I don’t understand mild injuries at all.

If you recall a few posts ago, I’d professed a desire to deviate from programming – at least temporarily. Karl suggested 3D. A good suggestion, but so many clicks to open 3D Studio Max. I called it off.
