snap! here are 2 panels from a 4 panel sequential narrative thingie assignment where we had to illustrate a japanese folk story. they have to shrink down to like 3x3 or something ridiculous like that, to fit onto a box.

i'm still learning my way around computer programs.

someone kindly pointed out to me that she's holding the flute in a totally incorrect way - hilarious funny! i will sheepishly admit that it didn't even occur to me to check for proper flute-handlage, i got all involved with how i wanted the hands to look. duhr. oops.
the other day i saw a sign written in green marker that said "CHAMP, you are the best thing that ever happened to me. I'm sorry."

also, i found a perfectly good computer chair on the curb!

one of my neighbors has this elaborate bird house setup in her front yard and i really want to put up mini xmas decorations on the doors and around the little roofs in the middle of the night. its not reallypopular with the birds so i wont bother them.

not sure how to do it aside from going to a dollhouse store, which would be expensive. i also dont want to nail or permanently glue anything down so i dont get charged wtih birdhouse vandalism ;p. i have some ideas but still thinking.

caaaan youuu ddiiiggg itt is a blog of film stills curated by Shannon Maldonado. She posts film stills of indie and classic movies. I only saw The Warriors once on a bus and i was rather intoxicated so I don't remember very much of it. When I was in New York, on another bus (coming home this time) on the day after Halloween I saw someone had scrawled "the warriors" in red spraypaint on a wall in harlem - ha ha.

found via grain edit, which is also a really awesome graphic-design-illustration-eye-candy type blog

via Jillian Tamaki's blog, a clip of The Adventures of Prince Achmed, a 1927 animation with hinged silhouettes. apparently considered by some to be one of "the first animations ever". i've never heard of it before but now i've just got to see the whole thing!
