Looking for an artiste...

I have been working on an idea for a comic strip over the past few months, and have a couple dozen story "arcs" outlined, and the first few strips completely written out (and drawn with stick figures!!)

However, in order to take this any further I really need an artist to work with to bring everything to life, so to speak.

Interested? What, you perhaps want more info?

OK - Here is a little bit of info about main characters and first couple of strips..

More spam poetry

Wingless rocket ships, and something more.
The general architectural designs remained the same.

It could have been a mine manager's office.

Thank you, thank you - I am here all week.

Slightly random thought

Does anyone remember HomeGrocer.com?  This concept of ordering groceries over the internet and having them delivered was certainly interesting - and the company seemed to be doing very well.  However, after they sold to ...whoever they sold to, that company crapped out.

Having groceries delivered is one thing, and for some people it would work great.  But it does not seem like the best solution for the greater Seattle area where it seems like more people are working all day, and someone may not be home to be there for delivery.  I was thinking tonight about a variation on the theme though.

Imagine you are at work all day, and you need to stop at the grocery store.  But it has been a long day at the office and you really just want to get home. 

How about going online, placing an "order" for the groceries that you need (perhaps even pay right then), and instead of the items being delivered you instead pick them up at a "drive thru" on the way home. easy to select what you want and pay, no long lines to deal with (theoretically), not to mention not having to walk through a grocery store with 2 kids fighting with each other and wanting something from every shelf they walk past....

It seems that "we" have such a fascination with the drive thru concept that this would just be a logical extension of what already exists out there.  I mean, there are drive thru banks, coffee, strippers (ok, I am referring to places like Cowgirls), dry cleaners, pharmacist, zoos (NW Trek, etc), liquor stores, wedding chapels (Vegas, of course), movies (drive in)....

Oh - and I think there are some drive thru restaurants here and there as well.

Ukelele mold

Just to share - the image behind the cut is a mold for ukelele I am working on right now (it's sideways - sorry, was lazy).

Currently the sides have been bent and are clamped to inside of mold for shaping, etc - next step is to trim excess of top and bottom, glue in the neck and heel blocks and add reinforcement...

There is an image hereCollapse )

Thoughts on woodworking

So - after making my first guitar AND violin (still need to post pics!), I have come to the realization that I really need some more tools.  Go figure.  But in this case some of htese are almost required. 

So I need to find some way to make or buy the following (in order of importance):
  • Bandsaw
  • Drill Press
  • Planer (looks spelled wrong like that)
  • Bending iron (for bending the sides, natch)
  • Small handheld router (I have a plunge router - but need something smaller for trimming edges of back and front after everything is glued together - and for creating the channel for binding)
Anyone got a bandsaw?  :)

(no subject)

Hey look - I DO remember how to post on this thing after all!

I am trying to get rid of a BUNCH of stuff - basically all of the remaining inventory from Compass (wmasupply.com), some random stuff that never made it into inventory (samples, projects, etc), and really whatever else I can find. :) Most of it is orientated towards the "medieval" (in some cases emphasis will be placed on "ish"), and will be slowly adding more stuff over the next few weeks.

Last Minute request for Crown...

Does anyone have an extra "pavillion", or something, that I could use as a merchant "booth"?

Planning Ahead

When I got into the office this morning I started up my computer, turned off the monitor and lights, closed the door - and proceeded to take an hour long nap in my bean bag chair.  It seems like I am always tired, but has been especially prevalent the past few days.  However, during this little time of rest, I finally acknowledged something to myself...

I am totally un-prepared for this weekend.  

I have really been playing this down at home (not like that is really fooling anyone), as I did not want to once yet again "validate"  how much of a loser I am, and that I cannot get anything done, etc....

So - just taking a little time this morning to sit in the impact of all that.  Not to beat myself up or anything, but just to really be with it.
