Halloween 2011

Wow, it's been nearly a year since I last posted and a lot has happened to account for the lack of attention.  First, we have a new addition to the family.  Naia, our second little girl was born in September.  We also had family unexpectedly live with us for three months while relocating to Austin. so fully consumed my every waking minute.  This halloween has been my first creative outlet in longer than I can remember.  Enjoy the costume photos, and hopefully I will be able to start drawing comics again (preschool does start soon).

Teefury ripoff

Teefury has a shirt up today that bears a remarkable resemblance to my Soylent Green shirt submission to Woot. Granted, I didn't read the instructions properly and therefore my submission was rejected. Plus, I doubt my version is the only one out there prior to today....but still, feels like teefury stole the idea. I actually think mine is slightly better because I used the packaging design from the movie, but clearly I don't know what sells. The first pic is mine, the second is the movie prop, and the third is teefury.

Again, sorry about the lack of posts. I do believe I will get comics up at some point in the future. I just don't know when.

Mushroom shirt

Still having a hard time regularly updating this blog, I'll try to get some new comics posted soon. But I've finally got another Woot Derby submission. I'm sure it won't win, but I had fun making it. I love shirts with food themes and I thought that edible mushrooms would play into the current theme of "Oddball." Death Cap mushrooms look just as delicious as a lot of other mushrooms, but it can kill you! If you'd like to see it printed, you could vote for it here.

Not enough sleep

Cecilia wakes up really early. I know most new parents complain that their kid wakes up at 6 or 7 am, and that is early for most new parents. But Cecilia wakes up at 4 or 4:30 am. Consistently. And she doesn't just fuss in her bed, she calls for me, and will then cry continually for an hour if I let her. For a brief amount of time, she woke up closer to 5 am (and I relished those days) but not anymore. And things are only worse when she has a cold. In an effort to try and convince her to sleep an extra 30 minutes or so, I'll take her into my bed to see if she might be lulled back to sleep. Sometimes it works, but it usually results in me not sleeping because she is very fidgety, and tends to enjoy sleeping on top of me in the most uncomfortable positions. The other morning, she fell asleep next to me, but as she has a cold (and a pacifier) she was quite noisy. And then, Seth was snoring right in my ear on the other side, and any movement risked Cecilia waking up earlier than normal. So, needless to say, I have spent many a day in dire need of a nap.

They hate me at woot

REJECTED AGAIN! Apparently, I have to be incredibly accurate with my thumbnail and my large image. Despite the countless other thumbnails that differ from the composition image, mine was SO far off that I got rejected yet again. Well, here's hoping I'll get my votes back.....again. If you feel like voting again, the new link is here.

Horribly sick

Spent the entire holiday season with a terrible cold. Cecilia was sick as well, though not to the same extent (I hope). Started out as a sore throat, then horrible congestion, and lastly an annoying cough that's been hard to shake. I swear I nearly hacked up a lung. Anyway, I'm finally over the cold, and my cough has just about finished its run. Anyway, didn't get around to posting anything, so hopefully this makes up for it. Hope everyone had a great holiday.
