In an increasingly online world it may come as no surprise that my dear friend Alex 大猫人 runs a blog as well (blog.purrdeta.com). In fact Alex runs the very server that hosts my website (Dark DNA). Now that I have gotten the shameless plug section of this blog out of the way I can continue onto the real issue.
Alex posted about his fantabulous adventure into stardom, during which he met the illustrious Ke$ha and LMFAO!
Now this next part needs a little back story to make any kind of sense to you, the lovely audience. I love writing. In fact it is the only thing I consider myself good at. I don’t even consider myself a good artist and here I am with a blog about my art. So when I got four words deep into Alex’s blog I offered up some advice. He took this poorly and grew to be quite upset. You can find it in this note.
This post is simply a retaliation against his unending silliness. Sadly I will not post without some sort of photo. So for your viewing pleasure I am including a picture of his face that does not look like him.

Caffeine has a strange effect on my brain. It always makes me… crazed. I just feel creative and have too much energy. This usually manifests itself in the form of “art” and conversation. Which is an art in its own right. Usually my coffee induced mania gives rise to the strangest of drawings. I wish I could ascribe any sort of meaning or importance to these drawings but that can only be done retroactively. To be completely honest my “natural” style is really just sort of a Rorschach test: I never know what I’m drawing until I’m about a quarter through and realize that squiggles on the paper look kind of like a two headed man or what have you. The funnest part, for me, is refining these squiggles into semi-coherent images while maintaining clean, simplistic lines.
Anywho, here are close ups of those three coffee induced abominations with the best explanation that I can manage.
A two headed person. One head is a paranoid old man and the other is a blind baby. Also there is some sort of toothed vagina on its back.
A baby reaching out to some sort of undead creature.
A goblinesque creature that has torn his mouth open by smiling so much is reaching up for some unseen treasure.
A simple doodle made for no other reason than this blog desperately needs a new post.
For anyone who knows me and also reads this blog, let’s face if you don’t know me you aren’t reading this, you will no doubt notice that this is my “natural” style. Which I have heard arguments that I should I simply keep with this and make the bizarre, zany stories that such an art style lends itself to. Considering I’ve yet to do anything outside of the B&M* department there really is not a reason I shouldn’t. Except that action poses are difficult in such a style. Nothing that practice couldn’t handle though, I suppose.
If anybody read this blog I’d ask for your input. Which I guess is what I have just done…
Too many decisions to be made and too much time to spend not making them.
I still do not have my precious コンピュータ in my possession, so this is as fancy as I care to get without a drawing pad and photoshop combination.
For all of you keeping track of my blog, Alex, you have no doubt noticed my lack of posts in recent weeks. This is due to the fact that I have moved back to Houston. My things, however, have not joined me yet. This situation should be rectified by the fourth of august: when my computer and drawing pad are once again in my possession.
Trying to learn how to use flash so far I have this gif. It isn’t much but “it’s a good start.”
A map of the Ukik’s Geographic features.
Here is a different alphabet/font I made for my “Tales of Ayabar” story. I made it so that the story will have a more exotic look. Obviously, I will not put the dialog in this font because that would just be annoying.
If I ever have the time I may attempt to make a proper language.
So I here is a map of the world in which my “Tales of Ayabar” story will take place.
I will post the Alphabet shortly after this so you can make sense of those scribbles.
Ok, so here is
the Earth another post from me. This is one is for yet another character and story. I have a problem. Maybe I should poll people or something to narrow it down. Or maybe I should stop stream-of-consciousness writing these post and show a little planning. But whatever. First sketch out.
