We'll miss ya, Captain.

The fourth panel is also how I look at the end of the last episode of Cowboy Bebop.

Man, I got a game over on the first enemy of the first level. I'm really bad at this.

If ya haven't heard, Captain Lou Albano passed on recently. I'm sure most people will remember him for his wrestling career, but I and possibly many other gamers will remember him as playing Mario in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. He did both the live action segments and the voice of Mario in the animated segments. It seems kinda weird now that Charles Martinet has become Mario's official voice, but back in the NES days, Captain Lou essentially was Mario.

He will live on through my daily "Do the Mario" routine.

Swine Flu

I think this is gonna be the next Pink Floyd single.

This is an idea John got a while back. He actually drew an image on a napkin when he thought of it:

With skills like that, I don't know why he insists on me drawing his ideas.

Take from this what you will, but I swear we aren't cop haters and we fully support and respect law enforcement. Heck, we have two cousins that are pigs... I MEAN COPS! They're cops! Donut eating pigs shouldn't be called cops. I mean... D@MMIT!

Bustin' Out

Oh look. It's a rock or somethi--HOLY CRAP!

Here's another Intermediate Ceramics project. Not much to it. If ya couldn't tell, I aint much of a clay person. Although it's mostly a big mound, it had to be hollow, so I had to do the time honored tradition of getting a huge mound of newspaper and building the clay around that, so that the newspaper would burn in the kiln. But before it when off to cook, I put in that dude trying to break out of said mound. Don't know why. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

Just Don't Win Anything

Or at least don't announce it when you do. It'll make things a lot easier.

I swear, this is the last Kanye comic I'll do, so don't worry. I know it's stale by now, but I couldn't resist.

Let's talk about this contest, shall we? Ignition finally announced the winners of their King of Fighters XII fan art contest. Rather than announce them on the game's website and let others view the winners art, they thought it'd be more fit to just list the winners with their first and last names reversed on their forum. Class act, guys.

Here's the post on my entry, if'n ya want to take a gander.

Shelby's teh Awesome.

As are the Williams in general.

This is a sketch of an actual person who is a regular at the bowling alley I work at. Her parents are friends with mine (who also work at said bowling alley; it's more or less a family business), as they've been regulars since they were kids. Anyway, one of their youngins, Shelby, got a hold of my mini sketchbook, looked through it, approved, and asked me to draw her. This, my friends, are why kids are the best kind of people in the world. An adult would never ask me to draw them. If an adult sees my work, they say, "Not bad. You should work at that sign place." Yeah. Thanks.

She seemed to like the cutesy anime stuff I drew, so that first one is just a straight up anime-ized portrait, which turned out good except for that dark spot on her left eye. My stupid mechanical pencil for jerks poked a hole through the paper. Then I tried a more cartoony sketch of her actually bowling:

I'm rather proud of how the pose turned out. I've been working at this bowling alley for years, and I still find the bowling pose awkward. Not just in drawing, but in general. The attempt in the sketch ended up being much better than I thought I could do.

I also found out that Shelby's older sister, Stephanie (who is also teh awesome), is quite the artist herself. She drew a quick contour sketch of Dad on a napkin, which I documented rather poorly with my iPhone camera.

Should I go out on a joke? Nah, this post is big enough.
