Quick Thoughts

1/24 Ugh, I need, like, three colors I don’t have to finish this picture. This picture of a person that is essentially monotone.

1/18 It occurred to me yesterday that Trowa has a pixie cut.

1/16 Just got a spam email promising me pictures of my wife (naked), and realized too late that I should have looked at it, since it’s obviously prophetic and I’d like to have some clue as to what type of woman I’m going to marry.

1/13 Finding a position where the pain is not so bad is like having a cat on your lap: you’re afraid to move in the slightest lest it gets up and leaves.

1/12 When Chuck Norris makes an ACNH island, the native flower is lily of the valley.

1/5 I saw a headline today that said, “If I were GM of the Broncos…” And I immediately pictured the entire team clustered around a table rolling for initiative.

1/1 Time to start my six-months’ term of writing the year incorrectly!

12/26 Oh, hello, Valentine’s Day. Huh. Christmas must be over.

12/21 A new picture that I drawed!

12/19 For the second time in my life, someone just asked me for my phone number (like, for dating purposes).

12/14 Working on site stuff for most of the day, putting all these old RK stories into the newest format, I’ve been hit by the first spontaneous Saitou & Sano idea I’ve had in… I don’t know how long. Years, I think.

12/9 I think what he saw in the Pit was just 2020.

12/7 It’s important to remember during this festive season that if someone is drunk, they cannot consent to being chained up and walled into a niche in your family catacombs.

12/1 Apartment/condo/townhouse complexes are barely designed with the convenience of their tenants in mind. They are absolutely not designed with the convenience of visitors (including delivery people) in mind.

11/26 Every time I do something in just graphite, I remember how many points I’ve put into my graphite skill.

11/24 One by one, each of my lazy villagers has realized that they too need to contribute to the Turkey Day meal; it’s been amusing to watch the wave of knowledge sweep across the island.

11/18 It occurs to me that I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that didn’t like The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

10/31 Happy Halloween!! For your treat this year, you get a site full of broken links!

10/15 Bear with me while I try to get the site running properly again at its new host!

9/2 Happy birthday to me!!!!

A Lois Date

DC Animated Universe: Lois is too sick to join her boyfriends on the date she had planned. And though they, of course, enjoy each other’s company in any context, can they enjoy the type of evening she had in mind without her?

Paperback now available

The proof copies came a lot sooner than I expected (that is, than Amazon originally said they would), and I love they way they look. I think for a future edition I will make the gutter margins a little wider, and there is at least one spot where the word processor did...

My relationship with RK

Because of the hideous behavior of its creator, I have stepped away from Rurouni Kenshin. I don't have active plans for new stories in that fandom except as pertain to my ongoing stories Aku Soku Zan(za), Blood Contingency, Heretic's Reward, and my His Own Humanity...


Yes, that's right: my darling sister finished drawing the cover illustration for this novel, which is now in the process of publication. The link above leads to the official site, where there are purchase links to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. At the moment only the...

The Longest Year: Monsters Like Me

Matías Soto Perez, a very normal human teenager from Earth, suddenly finds himself living a double life, but not the cool kind where he’s a superhero or something; instead, he’s just one of several “monsters” magically summoned every night to another world by a power-hungry alien to help in conquering neighboring villages… and in more mysterious pursuits. Awake in one world whenever he’s asleep in the other, Matías is first catastrophically distracted and then approaching the verge of mental exhaustion. He and the rest of the monsters must find a way to stop the summoning before it makes an even bigger mess of their lives!

The Phenomenal Improbability of This Coincidence

Disney: Three lonely years after returning to England, Jane Porter longs to find Tarzan again. And though she’s able to set out as a consultant to Elsa and Anna of Arendelle, who plan to search the same area for any news of their long-lost parents, will she be able to explain to them what she believes is the missing piece of the puzzle that brought them together on this voyage?

TWIP: I live!

Getting back on track in a new month. 07/29: Waybee always likes that kind of surface. 08/01: I happened to be reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame just when this cat came in, and I couldn't get over how many visual points he had in common with Quasimodo: 08/07: A...

I only have one grandparent left

My mom's dad died this morning. I don't need sympathy; I'm just documenting the event. He was an abusive husband and father and one of the most annoying people I've ever met. He was never worse than incredibly obnoxious to me, but I didn't like him. I often have to...

Visual Art: Exchange Art Etc.

I was an active participant in multiple art exchange communities for many years; here you can see the least terrible images I came up with for other people. Also, my favorite exchange pictures drawn for me, as well as gift art, commissions, etc.. This last is the most...

Visual Art: Miscellaneous Collections

Here you will find a showcase of my favorite pictures I've done, that I love drawing animals, and a collection of previews/detail shots/photos for scale/etc..attachment_tag='visual-art-collection-favorites' orderby=title order=DESC size=large columns=3...

Visual Art: Browse by Content

My Gundam Wing fanart is not quite a big enough collection to have its own gallery. Some of my original art is of characters you won't recognize from old stories. There is probably more Rurouni Kenshin fanart around the site that isn't yet tagged correctly to appear...

Visual Art: Browse by Medium

Watercolor Pencil (CretaColor Aqua Monolith) is my favorite medium. I also enjoy graphite. Prismacolors frustrate the hell out of me, though they certainly have beautiful results. I used to work with a tablet quite a bit, but these days fibromyalgia makes that...
