Stuff: Awtta be in Pictures


I may have created a series of monsters...

Lately people have been actually auditioning for a spot in Stuff. No, really; people have been suggesting things for strips. Or, better yet, after a funny happens, someone looks at me and says; "Bet that'll make a good 'Stuff', huh?" Like here.

And then, when I asked for a quick head pick, they sent glam shots...

Eventually I got something to work with, and their comic will come up in a couple of weeks. But there's two lessons to learn, here; one for me, and one for all those in my little world.

1. I need to take better, private, secret notes on my friends' funnies and how they look.
2. If you are in my world, you're gonna, sooner or later, end up here. It may not always be the way you'd hoped...

Carry on, my wayward son.

Stuff: Pounding out Love


It's bad enough that little turd didn't get the hint, last year; little Cupid is at it, yet again!

For those of you lucky enough to have found themselves sheltered from it, we have, once more, found our way to the Hallmark Day of Forced Affections; more commonly known as St. Valentine's Day.

Whoopie. Freaking. Doo.

Surprisingly not as cool as it looks. Well, okay; maybe it is a little.

And, once again, I'm on par for this year; on and off with an ex, blown it with a really smart woman I probably shouldn't have been going out with, anyway, and in the cross hairs of an obsessed one time flame.

Ah, screw this noise; I'm heading off to the bar for a couple of cold Hamms and commiserate with break up karaoke songs...

Rest Stopped...


Some sixteen years ago, because of life, I had to walk away from my higher art education.

In the ensuing years I've made the best of myself as I could. I got into a field of work I was good at, and managed to make enough to get by. Of course, in these times and economy, that just wasn't going to be good enough, anymore; especially for a guy who had maxed out his job level, and wasn't doing much with his art, due to lack of an education.

Inspired by the recent events of my disastrous stay at the video game company, I came to a simple conclusion; I need to go back to school. That's not to say it wasn't a huge descision; especially given the state of the American economy, right now. I asked everyone, everywhere. I even asked my fellow redditors! (Thanks, guys!)

I know things have been quiet here, and at The Conductor's Office, while I've been getting everything together, and ready, for April; when I go back for the degree I started some twenty years ago. But, once everything is in place, I'm sure things will pick up, here, too.

For the first time in quite a while life feels like an adventure, again.
