queen of diamonds

Here's my first idea and inking for playing card artwork I'm submitting for a show in Seattle, joining Friends of the Nib members David Lasky dlasky, Scott Faulkner inkboy, Mark Campos mr_sadhead and other fine people from my hometown. The grey lines in the pic are just the guidelines; I'm going to colour it and mess around with it some more. Let me know if you have any suggestions!



Okay, still not sure about this Twitter thing. I like seeing people's updates and getting messages (whee!), but I have no idea if I'm supposed to answer when people do the '@jabberworks' thing if I don't have much to say. I have this fear of clogging the ether with my chattering drivel. But I quite like it when my friends do, because I'm always curious what everyone's up to, especially when it's Gary talking about birds nesting inside his flat, Viv potting tomatoes on her roof, Alex trying to decide what yetis do on long-haul flights or Woodrow... this is my favourite one so far:
Last night I managed to have an open bottle of Coca-Cola on the go in nearly every room (not kitchen or bathroom). Bridget scared+impressed
Thanks, emmav for the list of 100 Geeks you should be following.

Speaking of drivel, I can bore for Britain with my computer woes. Suffice to say that even though I spent half of yesterday erasing and reloading the whole system, it still crashes five times when I start it up and gets flashing horizontal lines across the screen. Grrr, not good.

Ooh, I must go see the John Vernon Lord exhibition at the Illustration Cupboard before it ends on Saturday. (Thanks, Sue Eves, for the reminder!) I walked by the gallery on Monday after the Kuniyoshi show, but my brain was too full to take in any more pictures. Must go back. They're Alice in Wonderland illustrations; I wonder how he draws the deck of playing cards.

I think twitter replies are like blog comments - you should only reply if you can think of something to say that makes you sound clever.

Ha ha, oh no! That means I've been doing the whole blog thing wrong, too!

I am the proud owner of one of these, which is a pretty wonderful thing.

Yeah, I went through this weird period in my teenage years where I sort of acquired a collection of decks of cards against my will -- somehow the word got out that I had this collection, and so everyone suddenly had to do a lot less creative thinking on my birthdays and Christmases. Many's the festive occasion I found myself holding a familiar-shaped rectangular package in my hand and rather weakly saying "Oh, I wonder what this could be!"

But this one was a standout.

Ha ha, my dad got like that with boxes of See's Candies' dark-chocolate-covered ginger. He really, really liked it and was hard to shop for. So he always knew what he was getting but I think he liked it that way. He's pretty happy now if I bring him Flake bars, although I think they've been selling in the States for a little while now.

I think I'm glad I don't have a 'thing' people get me. Even worse, a favourite animal. People can sink under things like a once-stated interest in pigs or something. My sister couldn't shake the penguin thing for at least ten years.

Ooh, drawing looks very spiffy! Can't wait to see it colored and furtherfully wonderized. Were those words? I don't really care.

I'd say when it comes to twitter, there'se tons of drivel clogs in the ether allready, it can handle more, especially from interesting people. When you have something interesting to say, say it by all means.

Thanks! I will work hard on the wonderisation. Hmm, I wonder if she could do with a pet monkey or something.

Re: diamonds
I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with! And a definite yes on the sketchbook doodling. :-)

there's no pressure on twitter, part of why I like it^_^
Just reply as and when you want to.

As I said to you on Monday, the thing about Twitter is to just use it as it suits you best. Obviously blatant spammery is going to piss people off (not that you'd do that) but it's I wouldn't worry about not replying to everything -- especially if you don't even know the people talking to you. Sometimes I get messages from people who've subcribed to me and I don't know anything about those people so I often ignore them. But other times they've told me useful stuff! It *is* a bit like blog comments; in that you don't have to respond to every single one.

Also, your card reminds me that at Bristol several years ago there was a deck of cards designed by a bunch of comics people and sold for charity. I still have mine somewhere. I seem to remember the Evan Dorkin one was my favourite.
