Ok, Largo, whatever drugs you are on, I want some. And remind me not to come by till you get that zombie problem taken care of.
Today is not a day to expect any kind of point from my passive little rant. That wonderful, blissful freight train known as 'life' has this way of nipping at your heels and threatening to munge you under thousands of tons of steel, plastic and deadlines. Such is the week I am suffering. It's going to be a long day.
Of course, it doesn't help that Ukiya kept sending me screenshots from Air as he played his way thru to the end last night. Grrrr... i don't have mine yet. When I get it I wont have time to play it. Ukiya wa ijiwaru~~!!
I'm glad that people seem to be reacting well to my artwork - gives me that warm fuzzy feeling. One thing I've always tried to do is encourage others, including you (yes you) to draw. Drawing is one of those things that we became too cool to continue doing around the third grade (unless you were a total geek like me) but there are real joys to it - even if you don't think you are any good. Keep this in mind - there is ALWAYS someone better. If that fact that your drawings aren't as good as others keeps you from drawing, then i might as well quit too.
I know, i know. you need lessons. I'm workin on em.
I've watched a lot of my online friends really improve over the years. For example, JPSimon, a friend of mine, has developed a really nice style and in a few years will be drawing a hella lot better than me. Great color and fashion sense too. :) I should mention that Jonah also helped me break out of my design rut for the layout of the Megatokyo site. His layout gave me a lot of the great ideas that I have incorporated into this site. Thanks JP. :) (to view his site you need to have IE version 5 - he's big into DHTML and Flash and stuff - really wortha visit.)
I'm afraid i need to keep it kinda short today - which is hard for a chatterbox like me, but may be welcomed by our readers. Crunch days happen in real life, especially in my given profession. I'm looking at it being a good possibility that i might just have to skip that thing called sleep altogether tonight... I guess I just have to pump up the caffeine IV a little...
