Because why not.

Here are a few of the sketch cards I did for DC Comics and Rittenhouse Archives. They’re these promotional things that are given away when you buy a box of Justice League of America Archives trading cards. I did 200 of these motherfuckers. They nearly broke my brain.
The awesome thing about working for DC Comics is that they do pay you. Here’s me depositing my well-earned check.
Another (mini-) milestone passed!
I finished scripting Bolt: 6:59 last night. What that means, basically, is I wrote down all the dialogue—which wouldn’t fit in the thumbnails—in a separate text document. When I did that, I realized I only had 47 pages of material, not 48. Woops! I took that as an opportunity to flesh out a scene that needed a little more space. So I’m back up to 48 pages.

You may have noticed a little button at the top of the page that says “Pachekipedia.” Now I’ll be honest: up until this morning I didn’t really know what that page was going to look like. I had a vague idea for a mock-Wikipedia page full of stuff I made up. Just words I made up, or a fictional country, stuff like that. Or a wiki of my characters—you know, in the style of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. But this morning it hit me. I decided—well, why don’t you see for yourself.
I finished scripting the first 22 or so pages of Bolt last night. I didn’t get started until late because we went to Gusanoz last night as part of a surprise party package for Denis St. John, who turned 28 yesterday. The food was decent and Denis was genuinely surprised. He had a huge smile on his face and it warmed my heart. There was a party after but we didn’t go.
We had to clear out the living room and our bedroom over the weekend so they could work on our ceiling. It’s been cracking and blistering for a good year while we waited for them to figure out when and how to fix it. It leaks whenever we have a heavy, sustained rain, so we needed to do something about it. And we did. The cats didn’t really like being confined in the studio together all day, but they’re getting along better these days. That’s a really big deal. They hated each other when we first got them.
I registered for an online course with the Community College of Vermont yesterday. It’s an intro to website design. The class is a prerequisite for the more advance programming classes I’m looking to take in the future. I figured it’s time I learned a useful skill I could take with me wherever I go.
