He’s a little “Brainy Smurf”-esque I don’t know if it’s just me but it seems like the gradient tool and the pencil tool in Flash are harder to work with since Adobe bought Macromedia. It’s like they decided Flash wasn’t as crippled as Illustrator so they’d better level the playing field. I have noticed that […]
The concept of hacking always sounds a lot cooler than the reality. Sunday when a German hacker group rerouted the DNS of several hosting companies to their website, we all got to see their incredible hacking skills. Too bad that didn’t translate to decent web design, what they were so eager to show off to […]
Looks like Pea is less than pleased with life’s simple pleasures. I’ve spent the past couple of night’s trying to wrap up my sister’s new website and I’ve made really good progress. There’s a whole open side bar now that’s ideal for widgets but I think I may let them play around with that. One […]
Lots of love out there for “Republican Gun Family.” Glad you like – here’s another! Maybe we should switch over, someone once told me our characters have too much expression and here’s the perfect antithesis.
More on the subject of syndicates and their unreasonable aversion to guns can be found in the latest Pearls Before Swine collection, which somebody gave to somebody at our house for Christmas. I don’t remember where it came from, just that it was in the magazine rack for several months and there was plenty in […]
Ever had a week when you’re just too exhausted to think of something to say? Happy Friday everybody!
I’m churning out scripts tonight because Scott only has one left before he runs on empty. OK so life has been a little transitional lately. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on a big storyline that should carry the strip into next month. We’ve seen a lot of characters come back since the January […]
I spent most of yesterday sculpting and while I did I got some inspiration from watching several episodes of Amazing Wedding Cakes. I like watching shows about talented cake decorators, I can appreciate the skill it takes to make fondant do, well, anything. My attempts at cake decorating have always been full of inspiration, but […]
Last week we were introduced to the saga of Pea Progresso. The story begins in his teen years on the fussball field. I’m in the middle of my Actionscript 3.0 book and beginning to realize that it’s PHP in disguise. I have way too much fun reading about code, it’s time to get into a […]
It could be just me, but the sun was warm yesterday. Everything was just a little brighter, and the air a little cleaner. A window view that was once dismal and gray is clear and blue. It’s springtime for certain.
So my dad has been moaning since he got here about how much easier it would be to move things to the storage space if he only had a truck. I ask him, what if I traded my Mazda 6 for a truck? He thought that was an excellent idea so a couple of evenings […]
Today is my birthday and I’ve taken the day off to use my Disney pass. I’m 34 and not ashamed of it. I’m glad I began my blog back in 2003 because reading through the years has given me a lot of insight into how my opinions and aspirations have changed over the years. Do […]
