That's my horse

Today is a strange work day. I start work at 2pm.
Which is odd.
Earliest time I've ever gone to work. Hopefully my paycheck will clear.
Wont know until then.

Me and Mike and Raphael went fishing at the Clearwater pier. It costs money to stand on their pier. 6 bucks for fishing and observers pay 50 cents. It's pretty silly, since its not that great of a pier anyway.

But it must have been National Trout Night, as people were pulling speckled trout out of the water all over the place. Raphael caught sardines, Mike caught a trout and a pinfish.

Cartoon Network is showing Skunk Fu. At first I assumed they'd imported this show to hope to make a cheap buck in the chance kids might associate the program with the new Dreamworks Kung Fu Panda movie.
But this might not be the case, as I notice neptoon studio's own program "Total Drama Island" is now playing as well.

So Cartoon Network is importing canadian flash cartoons!
What an odd turn of events.

In unrelated news, I made a new painting.

I dont know if I'm pleased with it.
I am leaning towards the 'no' side. Maybe I'll feel better about it in a day or so.
I am pondering if I shouldnt return to doing digital art in flash. Vectors were always my strength.




I had a nostalgia bomb go off in my head the other day. And I suddenly remembered the lyrics to a song I thought was very beautiful when I was a preteen. It was an oldie song, but it was amazing.

And thanks to the internet I was able to locate it with the one line of lyrics I remembered from it.

'there were children crying
and colors flying
around the chosen ones'

It was from the song "After the Gold Rush" by Neil Young.

So I downloaded it, and am now a happy camper.
And its still a beautiful song.

That painting is right up there with the Bioshock one you made, very nice!!

It never stops seeming incredible to me that you can draw and post something like that every few days.
