dangerous love.

Amazingly, this piece was a long time in the making. My attention has been so divided lately, I actually started this before the wedding and it took me this long to finish it up. I'd fool around with it on and off but I was never very happy with it until today. Now I'm just happy enough to call it quits.

Dangerous Love
can love blossom on the battlefield?

Frogs and flies! What what?

P.S. Extra nerd credit if anyone gets the videogame reference in this post. It's pretty easy, though.

P.P.S. It's not Frogger. It's a quote from one of the sweetest games ever.

One nasty boo-boo.

I'm back! With a Super Awesome Art Challenge, no less! "Boo Boo" was October's topic, and this got me thinking. Really, really hard.

All ghosts say "Boo! Boo!" Also, all ghosts suffered some lethal boo-boo that turned them into ghosts. Right?

Did you ever wonder what ghosts might look like under their spooky sheets? They probably look real dead. And being dead is the ultimate boo-boo.

ugh, put that sheet back on. you nasty!

A Very Brutal Halloween.

This Halloween a group of friends and I decided to go as characters from the brutally awesome Double Fine game Brutal Legend!

We all put a lot of work our outfits, and since I made my outfit with my own two hands, I figured I would post the results here...


I went as the bad-mother-effin' Eddie Riggs. Lindsay (http://lindsaynohl.blogspot.com) went as the beautiful Ophelia. Ryan (http://giantpinkrobot.com) was the slightly out-of-it Mangus. Chris C (http://chriscrammer.com) was the always cucumber-cool Kill Master. And Adam (http://monsters-n-stuff.blogspot.com) went as the very disturbing Lionwhyte...

eddie in all his glory.

Eddie 5.jpg
a sweet axe on my back, and a bloody axe in my hand...

That fake cigarette alone took nearly 1/2 hour to make! And that wicked metal vest is actually a coat for a 9 year old with no sleeves!

Me me me.

Isara of Polaire tagged me! I don't normally do this kinda thing, but since I've been so lax on my blog lately I figured why not? Don't worry; actual art is coming soon... I've been writing a billion Thank You cards and figuring out where to put a lot of new junk in our overly cluttered house. And making sweet Halloween costumes (I should post that, as well...).

Here are the rules: answer the questions, replace a question that you don’t like, with one by your choice, add one more question , and tag 8 people to continue the game of tagging. Although be warned; I might not tag anyone. If you're reading this and want to consider yourself tagged, please do.

What is the thing that makes you happy? Nachos. Even though I'm lactose intolerant.

Coffee or tea? Neither. Gross. Ew.

What’s for dinner? Greek salad. You don't know what I had to go through to get it, either. I really wanted it.

What was the last thing you bought? A car. Technically, I just put a deposit on it and I don't have the car yet. So maybe Borderlands for the Xbox 360.

What are you listening to right now? The jams. Specifically the new AntiPop Consortium album. But all jams in general do apply.

What is your favourite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? My shoes. The flashy ones.

What is your favourite ice cream flavour? Vanilla. Yeah, I said it.

What do you think of the person(s) who tagged you? Cute and small.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? To bed.

Which language do you want to learn? Cat.

What is your favourite colour? Black. All shades.

If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on? I'd put it towards my new car, probably. Or a copy of Modern Warfare 2. Or I wouldn't spend it at all because the cashier would throw it back in my face and demand real AMERICAN money!

What is your favorite animal? I do not discriminate. All of them.

Describe your personal style? I... I don't know. I guess all gray with a pop of color. Or maybe "Fresh to Def."

What are you going to do after this? Go to the gym. Yay.

What are your favourite movies? Rocky Horror Picture Show, Grease. I don't even know anymore.

What inspires you? Lindsay. Twink. The internet?

What is your favourite fruit? Mango works for me.

Do you collect something? Shoes, videogames, music and pets. Clutter.

How many hours do you sleep a day? I'd like 8, I get by on about 5.

How many times do you press the snooze button before you get up? 2-4.

What is your favourite smell? Um, anything that's not soaked in cat pee.

What is your biggest regret? Not getting that mini samurai sword at Epcot Center when I was in 4th grade. Man, I would have been set on the "stud" path for LIFE had I gotten that sword...

What are you most proud of? My gamerscore?

Cats or dogs? What? Like who would win in a fight? Me.

What’s your biggest fashion mistake? My face.

What is your guilty TV pleasure? Twilight Zone, I guess. That's some spooky stuff.

What did you want to be when you grew up? Paleontologist. I thought that meant I get to hang with dinosaurs.

If you could meet any person dead or alive who would it be? Someone who would give me tons of money to make whatever art I wanted, I guess.

What is your biggest dream? See previous answer.

What was your favorite book when you were a child? Any Choose Your Own Adventure Book. Maybe the one about the race in Africa, in particular.

If today was your last day on earth what would you be doing? I would respect Isara's strange wishes and cuddle with her.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? The power to see naked ladies. ALL the time.

If you joined the circus, what act would you perform? Muscle Man. They have the sweetest bathing suits.

What fictional character do you feel is most like you? That's easy. Teen Wolf. We both win basketball games left and right. All the time, dunk, dunk, dunk.

My question for you: If you could tickle fight one person, fictional or real, who would it be? And where would you tickle them the most? The crotch? I knew it... You sick.
