Sketchbots: 1.5 - 2 hours

Don't ask me what that bottom one is......cause I don't know.

Hoy!! stand alone.

This has got to be a spoof.

Sketch: 30 - 45 minutes.

Okay I was all set to leave here at about 10 PM. But I just started sketching this and I wanted to finish it. Don't ask me what possessed me to create something in these nuclear colors. I've never had a real good understanding of color theory. This probably shows that I don't.

But this is an attempt to just do something off the cuff. If it fails, it fails. No biggie. It's only thirty minutes of my life.

I skipped going to see "Hitchhiker's guide..." to finish this.

Sketch: Robot doodles

Just drawing shapes.

Sketch: Two hours or more. Lost track.

Under the definition for "milking it"..... will find a picture of George Lucas.

Revenge of the Sith is gonna blow. I'm just sayin'

Live to Ride. Ride to Live.

Sketch: 2.5 hours.

YES!! The system doesn't work!!

The careers of all the personnel involved - all the way up the chain of command - should be over. Dishonorable discharges for the lot of 'em. This was not the work "of a few bad apples".

We are the most powerful nation in the world. We shouldn't resort to this kind of barbaric crap.

Man, I'm glad I'm not a girl.

Aside from that whole child birthing thing, which I imagine is something akin to passing a kidney asteroid through your urinary tract, I can't imagine how tough it would be to.............

...........actually wipe the seat off........or put the seat down.....before you rest your beautiful bum upon it.

Oh, the horror!

That is all.

More Sexy Robot: Did this last week.

Sketch: Random quick studies, nothing spectacular. ought to be in pictures

Gymkata 2: Electric Boogaloo. LOL. Guy's fucking amazing. Could have come up with a better soundtrack, though.

Sketch: A little over an hour.

Not good.

So I guess if you can't beat the competition, buy them out!

How is this in any way a good thing? Adobe is Photoshop, After Effects, and Illustrator and Macromedia is Flash and Director. And never the twain should meet....or at least be housed under the same corporate roof.

If Adobe fucks Flash up in any way, it's a guarantee they will never see another dime of my money.

Truth is more satirical than fiction.

I love Taiko

I remember listening live a few years ago and getting such a charge out of it. As I was walking by Japantown today, I heard the distinctive sound of Taiko drumming in Peace Plaza under the "white pagoda". It's a very martial sound. You can imagine what Japanese warriors felt as they streamed across an open field while the Taiko drummers called them to battle.

As I was listening, I felt it too.
Taiko as defined by Wikipedia

I worked with Jules Marino, the Animation Director of Storytime, while employed with Spunky Productions.

The robot designs of "Iron Kid" are superb. They resonate with me. I'm jealous of the designer and want to break their fingers. Believe me, it's a compliment.

I frickin' love these designs!!

I want one!!

"I will be swift and merciful"

I had a funny exchange with my studio mate this morning. It involved the story in the classic Star Trek episode "Arena"- one of my fave episodes of ST:TOS. Actually, I can't remember the reasons why that thread of conversation started so I'll just go into the other part of the story. Some how we got on the subject of the gas crisis of 1973.

In the seventies, my dad owned a gas/service station. The gas crisis wiped him out and he was forced to sell. I imagined how different my life would have been if he was able to keep the station. In this parallel universe that gas station - under my eventual leadership of course - became a chain of stations. This eventually evolved into the multinational oil conglomerate EdenCorp, which used it's considerable power and influence to make its CEO and Chairman - me - insanely rich at the expense of the unwashed masses and the environment.

It's good to have a healthy imagination. I could be that guy, though...........if it wasn't for this pesky conscience.

On preview, I guess you had to be there.
Sketch: 15-20 minutes. Not very interesting. I did it last night but considered not posting it. What the hell. Not everything is a frickin' masterpiece.

Sexy Robot getting money out of the ATM. Because even sexy robots need beer money.

Sexy Robot is my new design exercise. So there's gonna be a few of him thrown in there with sexy naked ladies.

Okay I cheated today.

Took a previous sketch I did and turned it into a robot. A strange robot at that.

Sketch: 95 minutes.

Going for more graphic. Less value, stronger holding lines to communicate the same information. Eh.

I didn't get in to Spectrum 12.

I guess that means I suck.

Oh well. There's always next year.

Trying to loosen up and not concern myself with so much of the details.

I would kill to have this man's.............

persistence of vision

I'm sure I would have finished something grand by now!

Well, here's a couple of real shitty sketches.

Ugh. Fuck this crap.

Man, I hate San Francisco rain.

It's like water torture.

I walked in to the studio this morning.

It was a beautiful day and I thought I would enjoy it. So I took my time and stopped in a few stores. I stopped by the Toys R Us just before it opened. There was a crowd of maybe thirty people lined up to get in.

My first thought was that they were lined up to get the new Playstation Portable. Don't ask my why I thought a week after it launched people would still be waiting in line to get one. It's what was on my mind as I walked in. It's what I went in there for. PSP games.

Well as I make my way in, I notice that most of the traffic is concentrated to the left of the front door. As soon as I get close enough it clicks. I see the giant Darth Vader poster. Today was the day Ep 3 toys go on sale. I didn't care much. Star Wars doesn't hold sway over me like it used to. Thank the new movies for that. I did sit there and ponder the General Grievous figure, but ended up not getting it.

The collectivitis was huge in that crowd. They're definitely not at all similar to the women you would see at a close-out or clearance aisle. Well, the stereotype of the woman in a clearance aisle anyway. Oh sure, the collector geeks are pretty grabby, but they're very polite about it. Some guy was reaching for a toy that I had my eye on. But he actually asked me first if I was going to get it, before he grabbed it. I think he waited .002 seconds for a reply before he snatched it from the wall mount.

As I made my way further down geary, I made a right at powell and stepped into EB Games to check what they had for the PSP. I realised something at that point. Games have now taken over as the thing I collect. I've got a ton of games in my "collection" that I haven't even played yet. They're just "collecting" dust.

I guess I will never get over my own collectivitis.

The Pope is dead.

I'm not a big fan of any organized religion. In fact, I don't believe in God. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool atheist. So this is just a superficial acknowledgement of *some* of the great (well I think they're great :) things this pope has done.

-He had the strength of his faith, which is a powerful thing I will readily admit, to look his attempted murderer in the eye and forgive him.

-He apologised to the jewish community for the Catholic Church's inaction during the Holocaust. It takes courage to accept that kind of responsibility. *Who could learn from that example?*.......

-He intimated that perhaps George W. Bush was the anti-christ. While I admit this holds no real weight with me, I understand the significance it may have with the catholic flock. Hey, I don't like the Bush presidency at all and I'm sick to death of the "liberal" media's unwillingness to focus ANY attention on the negative consequences of his policies. So I appreciate any criticism that might impact him negatively. Sue me :P.

-He joined with Bono and Bob Geldof in appealing to the western world to cancel debts of the poorest nations of the world. Okay, it didn't do alot towards ending the cycle of debt that these nations are forced to deal with, but it's cool nonetheless. I mean the POPE, the most powerful man in the christian faith, met with a couple of ROCK STARS. That's what I call fusion baby!
