Love and Hate

Mar 06, 2013

Rebecca is hilarious about things that she hates. We’ll just be driving down the road going to the grocery store or another errand and in the middle of conversation will be like, “fucking Bill Paxton.” She’ll randomly think of somebody, or something, she hates for no reason and just start swearing about. I usually lose my shit and start laughing straight away because of how random and illegitimate the hate is. I’m not joking about any of these things, she really does hate Kevin Bacon but loves the movie Footloose. It’s a roller coaster of emotion, enjoying the music then hating Kevin Bacon for looking 30 in a movie he’s supposed to be 18.

I think I married the right woman.

I saw one of these inspiration quote things with Chewbacca the other day, my wife posted it on my facebook wall where it said, “Waarrrggguuhhh, uurh awwgg rrarwrrggghhuh!” in black and white with Chewbacca looking all serious. I thought it’d be funny to extrapolate from that and pick another character that doesn’t speak a real language. One of my friends saw this and told me they already saw this done before… so at least I came up with it on my own but my argument is “I have superior illustration and font choice.” Adobe Caslon Pro isn’t for the weak.

Some times I draw a blank and I just like to illustrate a character. Ron Swanson was up there on my list of guys I needed to draw. He’s pretty much a caricature of himself anyway in that show now anyhow. It’s really easy to draw Offerman with just hair.

Where is he?

Mar 27, 2013

So I was talking to my friend Matt the other day, we’re fans of the Assassin’s creed franchise because we both love to scale historic architecture and stab motherfuckers. I was ahead of him in the series and played most of the games and convinced him to not get three and and catch up by playing Ass 2 and Ass Bros. I loved the Ezio series and all the historic Italy locales. Anyhow, I had some sour feelings about the lack of architecture and the story structure in the final third of Assassin’s Creed 3… The final act sort of fell apart and felt disjointed. It seems silly to boil down a video game so much, but I swear to batman it felt like I was playing “Where is Charles Lee?” simulator the last half of the damn game.

I realize the analogy the developers were going for where Connor symbolizes the rough and untamed nature of the new world that contracts with his father’s old english pomp and circumstance and refusal to adapt, BUT COME UP WITH SOME NEW DIALOGUE AND MAKE LUST FOR FREEDOM AND REVENGE MORE SOPHISTICATED THAN CONSTANTLY SCREAMING WHERE IS CHARLES LEE!?!?
