Long Hiatus




If anyone actually ever checks this page anymore, well, you need to get off the computer. I have been on a little 'sabbatical' for a while. I found I need to de-busy my life a little. It is nice to take some time to sit back and appreciate life, to be more of a human-being than a human-doing. We're not very good at that, at least I am not very good at that.

I have been doing a lot of drawing lately. I dig colored pencils, (preferrred by 3 out of 4 teachers!, and most importantly my wife the teacher). Interestingly, besides colored pencils, I used one other media on this picture. As I was coloring my pinky was bleeding a little and got on the picture, specifically at about 4:30, just on the right side of his cheek. So, I added the red everywhere, which I think made it better in the end anyway.

Body fluids and art- to great tastes that taste great together!

He looks positively spookey. I want a picture.

Depending on how I look at it, that pic is either a half-cute alien, or a horrid-faced zombie-mummy.

Tony said...

Is that the alien that abducted you? It's nice to have you back.

Cory said...

I vote for the horrid-faced zombie-mummy, or should I say...ASTROZOMBIE!

I nearly gave up checking your website, not because it takes too long to check, but because I was always greeted by the horrid mumps face. Glad that's gone.

I think you should do a caricature of each of us that has a blog so that we can have a picture on our front page.
