Coloured Blind (watercolour)
There once was an alien that came from a planet where the only colours were in the range of blue-green. He crashed landed in Ontario, Canada. Met a girl and fell in love. This is what he sees when he looks at her.

Did you ever go through an awkward-shy phase in high school? Are you still going through it now? Well, speaking from experience, nothing builds character more than that phase of your life. Why? Cause you spend so much time inside your own head. It almost becomes a habit, even when that phase passes (or supposedly passes). This time spent in your head helps with creativity, I mean, imaginary friends take creativity to hang out with right? But I digress. A book that deals with this in complete originality is Black hole by Charles burns.
Watching the trailer of Fears of the dark (definitely going to post about that once I get to watch it), a combo of short horror cartoons, in which Burns is an artist/writer, reminded me of this graphic novel. A perfect example of good ideas, great art, promising characters, that just lacked something, making it fall short of just amazing.
The premise of the book takes places in a suburban town, where there is an epidemic of a sexually transmitted disease. We mainly see this disease affect teenagers, and it has some very supernatural symptoms, with sexy consequences...actually, it makes the person pretty gross. A classic tale of "the other". Accompany this with your coming of age story and you got a winner.
Unfortunately, the ending was extremely anti-climatic. It may as well have ended like the Sopranos. Or this post.

So I started this painting yesterday when I had a hundred other things I was suppose to be doing. I am stuck, due to the fact that I am contemplating making the entire thing in a monochromatic blue/turquoise. Since this is from an already artful picture, I feel I should do something drastic to change it so it will not be a lame attempt of replication. The source picture is called I fell in love with an alien by the lovely and talented Vampire-zombie of Deviant art. If the monochrome fails and this picture turns out bad, the next post on it will feature me burning the piece >: )

So I was with my friends tonight, and we made up a drinking game involving dice. yep, totally original game, and this is copyrighted. If you steal this game and make it your own, I will hunt down your IP address, and rape your dog/cat/parrot with a splintered broom, make a DVD of it, and send it to your grand parents. To add insult to injury, the DVD will feature Kenny G music.
The drinking game is called "drunken nines" or "Lick my nine", the latter title I did not vote for. Rules are, you have three die, and you shake it up in a cup. The shaker must call out "above(nine)", "below(nine)", or"nine", and add up the value of the die. If the die are above or below what the caller says, everyone else but the caller must drink. If the caller calls "nine" and is correct, everyone else must take two drinks. If the die comes out to be a triple(of any value), the wrong person(people) must take three drinks.

Reasons why you should watch the new movie Outlander: vikings, alien(s), and sword fighting. This is not your typical B movie, it's rather a B plus movie, and a fresh breath of originality in todays movie-going experience. The budget was not amazingly large, but you would never be able to guess. It features one of the most badass alien monsters since Giger's Xenomorphs, yeah, I said it! This one emits phosphorescence to attract its pray, much like real life benthic sea creatures do. An added bonus: if you watch this movie very carefully, they provide a theory on why dinosaurs went extinct that is pretty freaking original.
End of communication.
Ps. damn, you Jenna. Now that I know you might be reading this, I am more self-conscious about my grammar!

So keeping up with not leaving this blog with stagnant old drawings, I must resort to sketchbook stuff. This is sorta old. On a lighter note, I have thought of a way to get more hits on this blog. I am just going to tag my posts with porn related names. If this means every time I make a post, I have to put a popular pornstar name, so be it! That should change things up for google, I will not include anything unsafe for work : )
