got cakes on the griddle

Okay, I am going to jump on the illustrators' unicorn bandwagon just this once:

I am painting like mad for an upcoming book deadline and it's so bad I even spent all night dreaming about painting it. Argh.

So I went on my date with Reginald and with the four other blokes who won nedroidcomics' date-Reginald competition. Reginald seemed to fancy one of the blokes more than me and he didn't call or anything, but then yesterday the postman brought this lovely signed pin-up in the post. It was so sweet, but I think we will just have to be friends.
(Today's strip is pretty awesome.)

Just saw that Garen Ewing has updated his website, and you can get a look at his workspace and drawing tools here. It looks like he's livened it up a bit since the last time I saw his desk, which he accurately described as rather Gulag-like.

Dave Shelton's done some fab little drawings of a skeleton in an orange polo neck, undoubtedly inspired by wilburonline's jumper at the DFC party.

I did a quick search for my song reference this blog post title (gotta luv John Denver) and came up with this corker:

Ahhh that song takes me back to the good old days of being 9 years old. Thank you for reminding me of some embarrassing memories/home movies.

Hehe, I am kind of a closet John Denver fan. He got cheesier and cheesier as he got older, but I loved it when he was that young straw-haired mop of a guy. I was working at a newspaper when I read on the news wires he'd just died, and when I turned around and announced it to the whole news room, there was a split-second silence, then they all cracked up laughing and the normally serious night editor started mooning around singing 'Sunshine on my shoulders' in a flutey voice.

There's an illustrators' unicorn bandwagon? No one tells me these things!

Don't take my word for it, I might just be hallucinating! Very possibly, in fact.

Aw, I really thought you and Reginald had something there. I guess he isn't the settling down kind of guy.

Yeah, I think you're right. It got even more awkward when Stuart challenged Reginald to a duel, and Reginald insisted they fight with light sabres. Except Stuart still hadn't seen Star Wars, so Reginald took him off to explain.

Funnily enough, it's been a couple days and I still haven't seen either of them.

Well I hate to break it to you, but whats most likely happened is they bonded over a Star Wars box set and then ran away to sea together. Or the space equivalent... they ran away to space.

Dang. What does a girl do in a situation like this?

That's one tasty looking pancake rainbow! I presume there's a pot of pancakes at the end of it.
Feb. 24th, 2009 12:09 pm (UTC)
Oh YEAH. That's our kind of rainbow.
Feb. 24th, 2009 03:22 pm (UTC)
Ah bugger! It's pancake day! Why does no-one tell me these things! [shakes fist at the whole of America]

Too late now, sadly. I did make blueberry buttermilk p-cakes on Sunday, so I suppose that can count as my early contribution.
