Mine Nemesis, Thy Name is Frank
At three twenty-seven in the morning, a sharp crack jolted Frank out of his creative haze. Looking towards the window, he noted the absence of the one of the more impressive icicles from the fire escape. Reaching over, he raised the nearly empty coffee mug. "Salute."
Setting the mug down and turning back to the screen, he cupped his stubbled chin with the other hand and went back to his brainstorming routine of alternately tapping the plus and backspace keys, setting a rythme for his mind to sort its ideas out into.
Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap.
Christopher approached the door to the master bedroom, a sense of dread anticipation for what he knew he would find beyond it tearing at the flimsy shred of hope that it was just his own mind toying with him.
"Too heavy on the word sauce," Frank said to himself, "pare it down."
Two steps forward, one step back. Being a writer was doing the cha-cha with yourself on a diet of coffee and pringles. Frank picked up the mug again and, draining it with

Here you will find little coherence as I make things when the idea strikes me, usually without regard for any specific style or category. Where does the transition occur? :o

Step into my mind!


Hello!

It's been a few months since I wrote anything here. I'm still staying at my brother's place, both because it still helps with our father-in-law's passing and covering some costs, and because they've gotten used to me being here. I do plan on returning home once my agreed-to assistance is no longer required. I have friends back home who keep calling to ask if they should just tell me what my Christmas presents are. :XD:

My creative abilities are starting to reawaken. I no longer plan out what I want to do and I've been doing a bunch of those intricate coloring books, feels pretty good.

My new blog keeps me busy, happy, and somewhat distracted from the wildfire that is America right now. I just got some crazy toys in from China to cover and have a nice backlog of weird movies and shorts to discuss. Thank my sister-in-law, if she hadn't pushed me to take the idea and run with it, I probably wouldn't have had the confidence to do so. "I don't know how!" Bitch, learn through the process! :w00t:

I had this great idea but then I started to lose it so I looked into my own ear to try and spot it only I wasn't careful and slipped and fell in so now I'm stuck inside my own head.

Have you ever had that feeling where you space out for a moment and it feels like you're underwater, your inner ear swings, and things seem to be blurry? Except for those moments life is pretty much the same as before.

I have a pretty neat crocodile/alligator collection with pieces from around the world.
I enjoy B-Movies, cheese, and loud guitar.

Everybody good? We all make it through yesterday without being too gullible? :p
Cryptid Analysis: The Biting Pear of Salamanca
Name: The Biting Pear of Salamanca, or simply either the Biting Pear or Toothed Pear
Classification: Outsider/Fresh Water
Location: The Tormes River, Salamanca

Tracing its roots back to the folklore of ancient Celts who settled in northwestern Spain, the enigmatic Pear of Salamanca remained a local phenomena right up until the present day, with the recent deluge of reported sightings coming in from foreign travelers over the last several years vaulting the city's resident creature into the international spotlight. Once believed lost, the oral tradition of the beast's origins were rediscovered in written form with the pages of an aged manuscript of a Catholic missionary that lay forgotten in the collection of a neighboring monastery.

Biting Pears were feared in olden times as raging river or lake spirits that would attack unwary boats, smashing them to splinters and dragging the helpless crew down into the depths if not devouring them outright. So great was the fear of the strange creatures that it was said that the beast were attacked on sight or hunted down by the fearful Celts to the point where they were either driven from the waters or wiped out entirely. Today, what was once believed to be a supernatural monster is today considered by some to be the remnants of this currently unclassified species or order of animal.

Those who have studied the available writing and witness reports believe the creature to be a species of fresh-water whale, dolphin or porpoise. The bulge atop the creature's "body" may actually be an echo-locating organ in much the same fashion as a Beluga whale, with the traditional blowhole having been adapted into a stalk-like appendage. It is these characteristics, along with hypothesized internal bladders used to control buoyancy, as the reported creature seeming lacks fins or flukes of any kind, that give the Biting Pear the appearance of a large bobbing piece of fruit.

I have two days to complete a short comic book as a family birthday gift with only the first act having been given to me by the other two people working on it; The agreement was that I draw, ink, and color. I had great character designs all ready to go and now I have to fudge the rest of it myself.

I also fucked up the spelling on the cover, noticing only after I finished it.
:iconbangkillplz:

Back to creative hell.

Note: I have enough creative control to push the project back to a realistic date. I'm now off to shoot zombies and eat beans.
