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

Farewell
More than saxes wailed the night the Big Man was laid down, and now he dwells in the mystery beyond the darkness at the edge of town.

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!


The last two dA events got me interested enough to make pieces for each of them but the currently running Pride Month event in particular is a milestone. For the first time in years, I got an idea in my head and stopped worrying about it being a perfect translation of the thought or what people would think of it before I'd even started. Instead, I grabbed the good paper I bought a long time ago and some colored pencils, got a soda, turned on some music, and sat down.

Then I sketched. I sketched and sketched, caring nothing for imperfections or overlapping lines, or whether that even looked like a circle or not, checking my various references until I had a collection of shapes and outlines that I was happy with. Then down went the outlines, away went the pencil, and then the colors and shades started to pour across the page as the voice of Phil Lynott sang out from my speakers to the wail of twin guitars.

I was in The Zone, a place I had been but couldn't remember how to get to, more ideas pouring into my mind. I was drawing like I had so many years ago, unafraid of what anybody might say or think; if I mess up, I fix it and continued. Now patterns and pixels and phantoms cavort in my mind and they can exist on the page just like that.

I've spent the last three years saying that I'd get myself going again. This time, I've actually done it. Don't stop now. Woooosh

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.

If this vote on Tuesday goes to shit, I have to consume humanity. As Leviathan, I don't really have a choice in that and considering that I don't have a gallbladder anymore and roughly 1/3 of the population is obese, that's not going to go over too well. Lay off the internet and save my colon, FCC.
