What I've been reading...

First time I read this was about 2 years ago, when I bought the first issue of this short series (about 24 issues altogether). The first issue was pretty good, but I lost track and forgot about it for a while. Buying comics every month is a lot of work, so I usually just wait till the entire series is complete and download the whole thing. It sure beats waiting a whole month to find out what happens. And that will be very important, because this series is really hook-worthy.

If you are a person that is turned off by comics because it has to do with superheroes, don't worry, I am the same. I read a lot of comics, and almost none of them have to do with superheroes (except Watchmen, but that is about so much more...).

Girls is interlaced with a lot of witty and subtle humour mixed with some sci fi (sorta). Its a great story; I have just began reading, and already I am going to try to ration the series as it is short and I will be sad when I have nothing left to read. If you want, you can download the whole thing at: http://comicscollection.blogspot.com/2006/04/girls-comic-collection.html
If you have the dough, I suggest you buy the whole thing off ebay or something. This will tie me over till the release of Craig Thompson's upcoming Habibi.

I was downloading the Danger mouse/Sparklehorse/David Lynch collab album (awesome btw) recently, and the album art reminded me of the Bats for Lashes video, which reminded me of Donnie Darko, which caused me to come up with some concept art, which is prompting me to do my next painting.

Amy if you are reading this, I haven't forgotten about that painting I promised to do for your birthday so very long ago (happy extremely belated birthday btw).

Much belated Halloween post

So this is what I ended up looking like for Halloween. I didn't make a torso for it because I had to carry a lot of alcohol on my back that night and the forecast predicted rain (WRONG!). Oh well, it was pretty cold that night, so I am happy I had a jacket. Next year, I might make a torso, or even go as the Gender Bender, if I decide to stick with this costume again.

However, this potential costume might give people the wrong idea...not that there's anything wrong with that.
