    Our Internet connection dropped us as I was posting this (not a good time for that to happen):

    It's 1AM EST - Do you know where old Analog-D is? He's smack in the middle of Round 2 of the two round Maytober Blitzfest that is Friday AM DEADLINE!

    Allow me to share with you a snapshot of all the funnel cake, corn dog and pixie-dust-on-the-tilt-a-whirl fun that you're missing:

    I have here, provided be a client, an eBook. I was told I would be working from an eBook - something I could essentially drop into place and not have to spend too much time worrying about...Funny thing is, when I opened the file I received, I did not have an eBook, but 22 individual chapters from three different word processing programs, complete with all sorts of hella terrifying formatting issues...So, I have to code them all...I'm on Chapter 11...By 17, I will have already scooped out my eyes...Look for them on eBay if you should need any...

    Let's break this 2-day event down for those of you keeping score at home:

    Total Time in Project: 1 Day: 15 Hours: 12 minutes
    Total Sleep: 5.25 hours
    Number of Times Thoughts Have Turned to Jell-O Puddin' Pops: 0
    Max Number of State Capitals Remembered: 32
    Number of Times My Team Has Tried to Bring Up Chuck Norris: 3
    Number of Times I've Squashed the Chuck Norris Jibber Jabber: 3
    Number of Veins I Can Feel in My Eyes? All of them
    I Would Rather Be: Sculpting
    Curious Thought of the Day: Why were the navels so big on those Body Worlds cadavers?

    Yup, I should be able to do Tues. evening with no problems. It is, after all, less than 2 miles from where I work. Hehehe.

    Hogarth was a god (Ironic, seeing as he's dead). Ever hear how he would attach charcoal to the end of a stick to draw massive figures in front of his Art Center class? I don't think I've ever seen anyone who understood the mechanics of the form as well as Hogarth did. His old Tarzan illustrations were nothing short of amazing, even though they weren't quite as anatomically correct as some other people--Loomis, for instance.

    I'm kinda of the opinion that you need at least three different methods for constructing a figure. That way, you can check them against each other to make sure they're correct. Oh, and that doesn't count "How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way" LOLz! Raise your hand if you own a copy of that! Come on, 'fess up!

    Project completed. I will speak of this experience no more...

    I'm with Wes. Right now, I study everyone (including Hobarth - and I will continue to call him Hobarth until he rises up to strike me down). I'm of the "there's value in everything" school of thought. Even in those gawd awful "How to Draw Fairies" books. Oh, it may not be some gem you want to share with others, but there just might be something you take away for later use...And if you do, don't tell anyone...You won't live it down...

    And who's dog did I screw? Why Walt Flanagan's, of course...

    One day, I will get to the point where I put a line down on paper and that line will stay - not because it's meant to be there, but because it is right...Years of training, folks. Years and years of not worrying about being some star of print and page, but simply enjoying the process...

    For now, I bid you all adieu...Work and the weekend are calling and that is a cry that I must answer...

    Whoa, just had to share this. Did any of you guys watch this growing up??

    Draw Squad

    That guy was the biggest goober, but I watched anyway. At least he didn't look like he was going to go postal on somebody any minute, like that Vietnam-flashback Happy Painter dude.

    hahaha. I knew I wasn't the only one. Course, that places me in the same group as Joel...

    Maybe we should have all the CATL signing this: Yes to Drawing, No to TV!
