Draw? Doodle? Sketch? Moleskine!

I do love these little sketchbooks.. and I'm not the only one.

43 Folders has a moleskines page, then theres the moleskinerie.

So whats the draw? they're compact, durable and easy to carry. I find I doodle a lot more now that I've got one to carry with me.

Oh boy! Ass-stained glass!

Why is this glass so cheap and what kind of stains are these? the delicate art of sign placement.. this may not be the ideal advertising strategy.

After Effects Error: Strange Situation.

I just got a nice long string of error messages from an after effects crash.. I've never seen this one before.. 'Strange Situation' - it sounds like it should be a platinum blonde or flock of seagulls song from the eighties. time to reboot!

The most excellent american coot.

My new favorite bird: the american coot. Fulica americana. a duck-like bird, they have lizard feet and they make a great peeping honk. apparently other people like them too.

sorry ' bout that identity theft...

New comic is up - this one hand drawn, as I feel weary of computers lately. could be the 800 hours a day I spend on one.

so much for consistency, I go back and forth on my preference for hand-drawn or digital strips.. I like the variety and character in the rough drawings, but I like the polish and smaller file sizes of the clean digital strips.

Penguin battery.

Yeah, but what have they done for you lately?

if you're like most yeti, there's nothing you like better than to unwind at the end of a long hard day with a bit of penguin batting practice.

Courtney love naked!

Hmm.. For a little while there we were the number one google search result for "courtney love naked" .. seems we've slipped to the number two spot. imagine the dissapointment that search result would cause some people.

We're still showing up first for "Adorable baby ducklings" and "hot buttered cop porn" though - go figure.

Share your Music And Movies.

This looks like an excellent idea: mediachest.com . What if you could get music, books and movies of off Ebay, but they were all free? Sounds suspiciously like communism.

Finger Puppet Extravaganza!

If you havent seen Lejo the fingerpuppet, you really should. The amount of character that guy can get with just a hand and a few simple props is astounding. Hit the (GB) button to view the text in english. two of my favorite videos are DJ and Robot. Diggit.

Hey hey.. the fine people over at bent comics are running a friendly little contest for work-a-holic web comic artists that think they can make daily updates to their comics for eternity (or at least until everyone else is exhausted.) Many artists enter, many loose their 20 bux usd. Will this thing ever end? who knows, but what a great way to motivate a long stream of creativity. hooray for bent! great idea. too bad I'm too laz-eeeeee for an event like this..
