Should I draw comics?

Going to Tuson. Can't sleep, so I drew.

Yeah yeah, I'm an insomniac. I'm sure there's a good reason for it. It has something to do with everyone being asleep and me having time to sit and do without having to worry about other people. Or maybe it has to do with left over habits from when I used to deliver pizza. Around this time Friday or Saturday night, when we would get out of the store, a few of us used to go hit the all night seven eleven. We'd shoot the breeze and pour nacho cheese down bags of corn chips. To be fair, I feel like I've pushed it too far if I get to see the sun rise.

In the news:
I've been told by a friend who showed my art to a friend of hers; that it reminds him of Ashley Wood. Happy dance, there. I love his stuff. I love my stuff too, I love a lot of art.

This is topical and involves the art in this post; I was drawing this in my room (so much for the peace at night while I draw theory...) and my Brother walks in and asks me to put some words in it. *Zap with the stylus and they're in right? Anyway, so then I'm redoing the face to match the text... long story short, I'm thinking about doing a comic. Now, the comics I love have always had deep stories and moving themes. Think watchmen or dark knight returns and all that. And I'm sure I'm going to blow a neuron or two figuring this thing out. But then, I think back to what I pulled on 24 hour comic day the other year. I think I can do it. Or rather, I know I can. It's a good feeling.

Which brings me to the Mall on Main Street action. It's going well, come in and check it out. Seeing new things in Rexburg is wonderful, and the people who work with and at the place are great.

I'm so excited to flee this sub zero weather...

And now I've got comic ideas to think about on the road. Seems like my star is working it's way back to an accent.

Caricature artist

I've been doing caricatures at the Mall on Main Street in Rexburg Idaho. It's been a lot of fun. Take these too kids, they were a blast to draw. Anyway, if you're in the neighborhood, drop on by.

What's really important;

I've come to the conclusion that my last post was dumb. That being said, I can't subscribe to an idea that requires me to sleep on my posts and think about them before I post.

The other day I was stuck in a series of blogs about how to create a "must read blog". After thinking it through for a few days. I've decided that they're full of crap.

Numbers in the header, a question at the end of the post, a paragraph breakup like a less effective standardized writing test?


I'm just going to post some sketches.

Comment at will folks. I'm sick of getting feedback on facebook.
