I have quit Facebook. I had many reasons to do so, but I am choosing not to reveal them. And now that I have said that, I have nothing to write about. Aint that somethin’? I seem to have painted myself into a corner. That was one of my Dad’s favorite sayings. Another was, “That dog is smarter than you kids!” He really favored the dog over us. Who can blame him? He was a good dog.
However, I digress. I think I was suffering from Facebook anxiety. I don’t know if that is a thing. Whether it is a thing or not, that is what I suffered… “Facebook Anxiety”. (It is now, officially, a thing.) I think I was overwhelmed with information. You know what?… I am uncomfortable in large crowds. Wow! That was a lot of people on Facebook! Awkwaaard!… Awkward is a strange-looking word. Awkward. Awkward. It’s an awkward word.
Another reason that I decided to dump Facebook was my belief that Facebook is a dangerous, sophisticated brain-washing machine. I tell you this in confidence, of course. As I said earlier, I will not be revealing any reasons. Yet, it is reasonable to assume that I have no confidence in my secrecy.
So, here I am…spilling the beans. Whether they be green, pinto, magic, or Mexican jumping, I will not cry. On the other hand, if I had spilt the milk, that might be a different story entirely. In conclusion…No Facebook!
This art is the final result of my first foray into the wonderful world of computer graphics. It was 1997 and it was created while messing around on the computer in my Design class. This is also, quite possibly, the first time I ever scanned anything.
I believe it started out as a colored pencil drawing, and after a lot of computerized manipulation, morphed into what you see here. I actually believe that the original drawing was wildly different from this final draft. (I lost the original)
The Siamese Fighting Fish is officially called the Betta. Go here to be amazed by the beauty of these creatures! Photos of Betta.
I have a Betta and his name is Ruby and he is blue.
Some animation to show that the Variety Frog Pad has six different designs. I plan to put this in my Frog Pad page. Please visit now. Under “Pages” to the right, click “Frog Pad”. Buy a Frog Pad or two. This is the first time I have used the “tween” feature. I like it! However, I couldn’t figure out how to use that effect in between the Pac-Man Frog and the Poison-dart Frog. Compared to the other smooth transitions, it seems to clunk from one to the other.
Any resemblance to anybody is purely coincidental!
Did the cover art for Flint Comix and Entertainment #62. Black ink and Photoshop color. On sale now at newsstands everywhere! Well, not exactly “On sale”,… they’re free. And, not exactly “now”, it might be a few days before you can find it. Actually, “everywhere” may be a little bit misleading. Let’s say the Genesee County area. Otherwise, “at newsstands”.
