Tempest in a Teardrop: The Churchians – Concept Art – “Dart”
Things Codex learned from a Snow Day which happened recently, in no particular order.
On Unbridled Happiness:
There is no rejoicing like teenage daughter rejoicing, when you tell her, “…and so school is cancelled.”
Codex: You’ve got this sledding run sussed out.
Glyph: Yeah. I tried a bunch of different things …but it was mostly just dumb luck that I hit on this one.
Codex: I wouldn’t call it “dumb.”*
*Codex’s postulate of Smart Luck:
Smart Luck == Dumb Luck + Paying Attention
Hot chocolate tastes best after a day of sledding. It also tastes better when you make 1/3rd of it coffee.
It’s bunches easier to make dragons out of paper than snow.
Oh what a joy to post with no particular deadline!
Codex here with a riddle for you: What do you get when you cross a 55-year-old mushroom and a diving shoulder roll*?
Answer: A half-finished comic and an artist who can neither sit nor stand for very long.
So prayers would be much appreciated, not only for healing, but for finding work-arounds so that if the good Lord in his Wisdom wants me side-lined for a while, the things folks are counting on me to do get done.
(*Another super fun activity like leaping side kicks and tree climbing that Codex is no longer allowed to do. Sigh.)
Codex here. So, a few Saturdays ago, I wrote about a game of illustrator prompts called Monster Art Battle.
I left our humble readers with the challenge: Design a monster with that contains (in some way) “mobster”, “squid,” and “pet kitten.”
Here’s what I came up with:
Soooo… D’you want any other prompts from the convention panel?
(True confession: I had to look up “tommy gun” on google images. But it was still fun to draw)
