This is what I turned in, and I didn't get yelled at, so I was pretty jazzed about that.

What I am up too.

I am working on this for class, I hope it will be done tonight, but I like where this one is going a lot more than the ladybug. Digital illustration is awesome and I heart it, but it is kind of hard for me, I am still looking for that gem of a personal style.

Hotel Chevalier

I hope all you Wes ANDERSON fans out there, headed over to iTunes and downloaded or at least watched the 13 minute prequel to "The Darjeeling Limited." The prequel is called the "Hotel Chevalier," it is a little scandalous, but I really enjoyed it, mostly because I love love love the shots in this movie, The Darjeeling Limited is not opening up here in Idaho Falls, as far as I know. I have my fingers crossed for the friends of film at the Center Twin. Anywho, the hotel Chevalier stars Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman, and it is awkward and awesome. Check it out when you get a chance, but a warning to all those with the tiny adults, it has been rated "explicit" by the iTunes.

First digital painting exercise

This was for my digital illustration class, our first assignment, I struggled with it. It was frustrating but I am learning a lot in that class so I can't really complain.

I know, I know

Rollans showed me this Halo 3 commercial and I like it so much, I am going to post the other video game commercial that I enjoyed, I know it is super nerdy. I like to think that the video game industry is trying to improve their standards of advertising, rather than just blood and guts and top heavy women. The Halo 3 one is my favorite I can't really explain it, it invokes an emotion in me that I cannot explain.

"Blind Love"

The title of the video is blind love, just look where they are both coming from.

Eldis took this video

Another Poster.


TStout posted this on his website, well worth a look see.


I know this one strays from the time tested model of posting cool stuff found on the interweb, but I am just curious to what people think.

I pose to you a question, one that I have been thinking a little about lately. What makes you an adult, do you consider yourself to be an adult?

I don't for one second think that I am a "grown up" I have the ability to do basically anything (except rent a car). Society has given me the "right" to engage in anything I want to, whether that be to destroy or to build up. I guess what I am trying to say is that I am allowed to make every decision in my life from this point on, but do i? Is that what makes someone mature, is the ability to make decisions make you an adult? I'm not sure, just kind of wondering.

Just to keep my reputation here is a sweet picture.

I saw this over at "you ain't no picasso's" blog, thought I would steal it and post it as something I found on the interweb. It has an all-star cast, I think it is going to be pretty good, maybe a rental because it feels awkward even when you are watching the trailer, but when you say the word awkward, Michael Cera's head pops up.

To combat Dylan's Wiggles

Yo! Gabba Gabba is pretty sweet, and I listened to this song like a mad man the first time I heard it on Mike's iPod.

Heres a little more texture

just keep in mind this is completely new to me, Tyson was nice enough to hook me up with some texture and walk me through it.

P.S if you like it fantastic, if not, I hope you get punched in the crotch until you pass out.

A little late, but worth it

I know everyone has heard of "Flight of the Conchords" by now, but I saw this video today for the first time, and this post is mostly for Mike.

The Original poster for Comic Frenzy

Well, this is the original poster.

P.S I didn't make this poster, I just had it pointed out to me that someone thought I did, I made the other one, this is the poster they were going to use. They didn't like it so James got on the horn and asked me to make one, which is the other one.

learning new stuff, and getting sucked into making posters

James called me up last night, and forced me into some sort of slave labor ring, also know as comic frenzy. So i got to make a poster super fast, and I hope it doesn't make the people who come to my websites eyes melt. I think it turned out pretty cool, in my defense it was a rush job so I would have liked to spend a buttload more time on it, so hopefully I will be able to do some more this semester.

Congrats to 30 Rock

For winning the emmy for best comedy, unless I misread that. Which I am prone to do on occasion. I am like 78% sure though it won, and if it didn't, it really should have. If you have not glued yourself to the 2 hour block of thursday night on NBC, you probably have better things to do, or just don't really enjoy watching television. Now that, that is on the table, by not watching television you are single handedly destroying an American institution and a common stereotype, the one where all Americans are illiterate and only watch television, which is true.

The Movie of Choice

This summer I partook of the "fruits of the devil" ( when you read that you must read it like Mike Myers) I went and throughly enjoyed Judd Apatow's "Superbad" and I will tell you that about halfway through the movie I was literally tired of laughing. I seriously wished there was a dumb part of that movie, just so I could have a breather at some point, with this review I will put a disclaimer on this movie, that it was by far the raunchiest, dirtiest, and filthiest movie I have ever seen in my life. For those who know me well enough you know that I have a mouth that would make a sailor cringe and the mind to go with it, but in watching this movie it was like my mind being played out on the big screen and I say that with a bit of hesitation, because I could not even give my dirty mind the credit of some of the things that were thought up in this movie. A side note though, I read that the script and concept for this movie is over 10 years old, that Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen updated it. Even by today's standards this movie is pushing the limit, I can't imagine this being released 10 years ago, but then again wasn't there a person named "Boner" on growing pains or something.

Either way if you have the guts and the sick and twisted humor I suggest you check it out. If not do check out, "Be kind, Rewind" that looks awesome.

another one that I would pay 8.95 to see

I love love love Mos Def, I think he is fantastic, and I think this movie is going to be fantastic, mostly because Michel Gondry is attached and I love just taking in his movies.

I am BACK with a movie I want to see.


and so my first post is about a movie I am really excited about. This movie really looks awesome. I hope it is as good as it looks, and yeah I saw the notebook this summer and all I have to say about that is Ryan Gosling looks pretty sweet when he is rocking a beard, not as sweet as Michael Caine in the original "Alfie," but close.
