Here's some scribbles to commemorate a nice little lunch I had on Monday with some local friends and one from out of town.

Here's a sketch.



It's based on this:



Kinda crappy, but certain aspects come through. I can and will do a better job of this, but I promised the model (a bartender at an Irish pub in San Francisco) I'd give her the original once I scanned it, so for now this is what you get.

It's kind of nice how once you demonstrate a modicum of artistic ability, pretty (and busy) girls are willing to stand still for a photo. And talk to you. O god I'm so sad.

A friend writes in a mailing list:

It's a small scene, no plot point and a nice change from those countless movies where the James Bond type sucks back a fifth of bourbon with no visible affect.


That has to be the most gorgeously apt misuse of the word "affect" I've ever seen.

Yes! I am actually doing some new art! As well as souping up some old stuff.

Some color versions of older icons:





Some new icons (black and white, as yet):




All these are no bigger than 100 pixels on a side, suitable as is for LiveJournal. Bigger versions behind the cut.

After months of stagnation, I'm at work again on the comic. The next installment will be up soon at Drunk Duck, but you, my friends, get a sneak preview. Critique more than welcome.

I was asked where I'll be in a year.

No fucking idea! :D :D :D <-- [these are sincere]

Y'all remember I got laid off in July, right? Pretty much right then and there I knew I was done with the tech industry; it was fun, but no, actually it wasn't. That basically meant that I was going to have to pull up roots and relocate; the Bay Area is just too expensive. I thought very seriously about going back to U.C.Davis and finishing my PhD in physics, but now I'm thinking I need to head off in a completely different direction. Like, strip my material possessions down to the bone, find a really cool place to live, and do what I have to to survive while trying to cultivate an actual LIFE. (Which in some ways I haven't had for, oh, 15 years or so.)

So that's the plan. At the moment I'm kind of inclined to head Portland-ward. (Oregon, not Maine.) At least now I know I won't need to leave the country :-/

Our 8-year-long national nightmare is nearly over.

(If I were a praying man, I'd pray for Obama to survive at least until Jan. 20. Not to be cynical or anything.)

This is civic responsibility week, chez Lignamorren. I report for jury duty today. I checked the San Mateo Court website last night (this is Silicon Valley, after all, or at least the outskirts) and found I need to call back around 11:30 today. I'm torn. I've never served on a jury, and would like to; but it would be kind of a hassle too. I tell you what, though, I'd get a lot of drawing done.

Speaking of which, my evening at the British Bankers Club last night waiting for the election results was somewhat fruitful; I'll post some sketches later. And yes, I'm making progress on the comic again.

UPDATE: I'm off the hook for jury duty. I'm a little sad. This was my last shot at it in San Mateo County; they won't call me for another year, and by then I'll be somewhere else. On the plus side, I can devote my full energies toward fucking off art and other projects.
