A Mother’s Day project…

By on May 12, 2022

  A couple of weeks ago my daughter wanted to play a game with my wife and I. She wanted to be a teacher and we were her students. She got everything together and even came up with a little lesson plan. I, getting into the spirit of things, spent most of my time hitting on the hot girl who sat next to me in class. My pick up line? “Hey.” I might have stole that from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse but don’t tell anyone. My daughter kept reprimanding me for not paying attention but I was sure I was doing my assignments before making eyes at the class hottie. When it was art time the teacher told us to draw flowers and I quickly drew this…     We finished playing and moved on with the evening. There was something I liked about the drawing so it stuck with me. With Mother’s Day quickly approaching I decided I wanted to use the drawing in some...

Got another one done…

By on May 4, 2022

  Here she is. This latest Gundam has a different look than some of the others. That’s how I’m picking them now. Look and complexity. Most of the Gundams have the same look but at some point in the series each country built their own Gundam. The results are… interesting.     The Mexican Gundam had a huge sombrero. Spain’s Gundam was dressed like a giant bull and The Netherlands’ Gundam looked like a windmill. I would like to get some of these but my guess is finding models will be difficult.     This one was pretty simple so I think I might spring for a next level Gundam, which means I’m not going to be making one for a little while. I don’t mind spending $20-$30 here and there but $60 or more is a little harder to justify.     I’ll start searching and maybe I’ll come up with one that I can work on...

Working away…

By on Apr 28, 2022

  Been sitting on this for a little while. Don’t really have much to write about. I did get a new Gundam which turned into a minor fiasco. I ordered it last week and it was supposed to arrive the next day but they delivered chair coasters instead. Not even close to a plastic model.     I thought I was done with this drawing but after the mixup I decided to keep going. Now we are just flying by the seat of our pants on this one. I have no idea where it is going at this point.     I did get the right shipment and I’ve started working on it too but I’ve kind of stalled for the moment. I’ve been in a terrible mood, if you couldn’t tell by the last few posts, which has led me to just waste time falling into tiktok and reelz holes instead of doing anything productive. It is amazing how those can effect your brain.     On the...

How Bloody Dare You?!?

By on Apr 19, 2022

  My youngest is a trip. She’s in elementary school. We’ve had to have a talk with her about accepting dares. A few months ago she pulled a Cool Hand Luke and decided to eat some hard boiled eggs at lunch. The eggs were really gross and, on top of that, she absolutely hates eggs. We found out about the dare because she promptly threw up shortly after the bet resulting in a call from the Nurse’s Office.     A couple days ago we picked her up from school and she was both relieved and exhausted. It was a little weird but we didn’t think much of it. Later during dinner she let us know about her day. From an early age she was able to pick up accents. It was the weirdest thing listening to her play with her dolls, shifting through Midwestern, Southern and British accents. Apparently before class started she took a bet where she would speak with a...

WHAT DO YOU MEAN THERE’S NO WIFI?!?

By on Apr 13, 2022

Today was one of those days… About two hours before I made it to work I found out that we had a power outage. By the time I made it in power had been restored; however, I was greeted at the door with, “Good morning. The internet is down.”     On the way to my desk I was told 6 more times that the internet wasn’t working. While in the server room, attempting to get a handle on the situation, I was informed 2 more times that the internet wasn’t working. You would think, being that I was in the server room standing on a ladder holding a box with all kinds of wires coming out of it, that I might have a hunch something was wrong but…     Took a little while but everything is back up and running. I do have a few observations. The first is when the wifi is down it’s funny how many people know, and self report, dispite the fact that...

Drawing some more circles…

By on Apr 8, 2022

  Started a new drawing. Didn’t really have anything in mind so I just started drawing circles. I’m trying to do this a little different. A little lopsided. I don’t have a sticker or product in mind so I’m just trying to have a little fun with it. Just do some drawing and thinking. I’ve been a little annoyed lately. I think it is because of the local elections. All these new politicians springing up running for School Board and small town board positions. I think it was what spurred on that last Satanic Panic post. Some of them are very passionate yet very misguided and manipulated. They don’t have the experience or polish of an established politician. We have a saying around my house, “Make it better, not just different.” Some of these people have fallen for the propaganda and they just have to make things different. It...
