Let's talk about Katsuhiro Otomo drawing Shojo

I found this floating on the internet some time ago, I wish there was a full comic, you can still see Otomo's style popping out. I've always wanted to do a straight up shojo comic. Maybe I will, maybe the remake of the Freakenstein comic bellow will be one hahaha.

Let's talk about DIY games

Most nerds that play videe games have a special game of their own in their head that it's the shit. I for instance have several in my head that trully are the shit. Now some actually go the distance and make their own games instead of thinking/talking/blabbing about them.
This game called January by Ritch Vreeland it's more of a mood type game and not a story type game (kinda like "indie" comics, zzing), you basically walk around catching snowflakes with your tongue. Each flake caught makes a different sound as he puts it: "January uses a set of predefined musical rules to make choices about what the next note (or notes) will be, while also giving the player the freedom to choose when notes will be played, and the ability to make distinctions between different types" Not bad and I really dig the simplicity of it. Here is the link to play it.

Now , on the other hand CANNABALT first off, the games' initial screen reads "best enjoyed with headphones on" which I guess is internets lingo for "smoke weed and *some sort of recreational action*"
This game rules, it was the first thing I got for my Ipod touchie. It's a sidescroller and all u have to do is jump and avoid shit to a sweet soundtrack. The perfect timewaster, you can play it on your computer for free on their website. The mouse/pad/trackball clicking is not as responsive and pressure sensitive as the ithis&thats touchscreen.
Keep on bleep bloopin'

Let's talk about comics

New blog new direction and what a better way to celebrate then setting some artwork free.The blog will be taking a new turn, where pretty much anything goes.
Somewhere in 2002-3 I had an idea for a comic, a Frankenstein tale set in a Metropolis world. It was about a boy that had his heart stolen by an evil witch. He had to claim his self back from the owner of his heart. A quest troubled by the fact that he was in love with her (coz she was the owner of his heart, literally, har har)I did many takes on that idea, a couple of shorts and a load of illus. Then I put it on the back burner.

In 2004 after meeting up with Rick Spears on the internets, I pitched him a couple of things for his publishing company Gigantic, a couple of different pitches but nothing really stick. He knew of my "Frankenstein" story and offered to write it for me. So "Valentine" was created.

A project halted and never completed, mainly because of Pirates of Coney Island (the irony). I will revisit this story at some point and take it from the top, but that not something that's going to happen soon.
So here it is, the 2004 version of my Freak-estein story in its 80 paged unfinished glory. I still have an extra 10-15 pages somewhere that I will update the PDF with eventually.
