Kimiko and Piro

"art therapy"

Friday - March 29, 2002

[Piro] - 12:56:01 - [link here]

Well, as i said in the status bar above - real sorry about the schedule collapse this week. (and please, stop sending me emails telling me to stop apologizing. its only common courtesy to apologize for being late. mou...)

but you gotta admit - even YOU would apologize for putting up a Shirt Guy Dom strip. ^_^

I've ranted enough about the joys of deadlines in my day job, so i won't bore you with any more griping (griping is fun tho ^_^) I finally managed to get home fairly late - and just as i expected, i had about as much energy and time to do a comic for tomorrow as that little AA battery in the clock near my TV that has been telling me it's 3:23am for the past few days.

Stress is a funny thing. I admit, its been a really stressful week. One of the things about forcing yourself to draw to meet a regular schedule like MT requires is that i've had to draw in all sorts of moods - from the euphoric, relaxed and totally in groove with what i'm drawing, to the seraphim-taking-away-the-pruning-shears-as-i-take-them-to-my-fingers moods.

Sometimes, when you are stressed, you feel like there is all sorts of stuff bottled up inside. What it is might not be what you need to draw the scheduled work, but sometimes, when just allowing yourself to freesketch, that stressed, pensive mood can lead to some pretty good drawings, that have a lot of feeling in them.

over on Fredart (my poor neglected art page (sniff)) i posted one these types of sketches, a drawing i did just by sitting down and sketching at random. I had no plan, really, but... for some reason, it really caught something profound about Kimiko and Piro. Since Dom had worked so hard on the SGD strip for today, i decided that fredart was the place to put this sketch - think of it as something extra. I hope it makes up a little for leaving you hanging on the largo/miho story. no worries, i'll have the next installment up by saturday. :) WORST case monday :P

I'll keep you posted. I gotta go to bed before i fall over. ^_^

"Annoy Largo in Person"

Wednesday - April 10, 2002

[Largo] - 08:14:00 - [link here]

Just a reminder to all you Dallas/Fort Worth and neighboring North Texas people.

I'll be at available to be annoyed by all of you this weekend at the following bat-place and bat-time.

When?This Saturday, April 13th at 4:00pm

Where?Dave & Busters In the Bar/Arcade section underground.(in the Stonebriar Mall)2601 Preston RoadFrisco, TX(214) 387-0915

How?Uh, well ... get a ride ... or something

Why?To hear me explain the virtues of apache webserver and unix administration, why PHP is better then ASP, and why I in complete lust for MySQL. Also up on he agenda will be my rant on why the tech job market in DFW area is sucking major wind. Either that, or to just challenge me to a game of House of the Ed... er I mean Dead.

What?Dave & Busters is one of those neat places that combines coin-op video games with an open bar. Naturally this seemed to be best place to hold a MegaTokyo gathering.
