Grampall Jookabox video game

I recently completed a video game for Asthmatic Kitty Records' newly signed artist Grampall Jookabox. I very much enjoyed making it and I'm looking forward to creating more.

Also, did some illustration for lolArts. The cats at the top of the page, and some other cats inside a booklet that was at the event in San Francisco.

I wasn't crazy--I was stupid.

Lee, Jessica, and I went tarping at Gasworks Park last Friday. It had been windy all day, until we arrived at the park. There were a few mild breezes and Lee experienced The Pull, but nothing substantial so it was a little disappointing. Lee said he's up for next time.

It was the 2nd time I had tarped since my accident. Some people think I'm crazy, but my answer to them is: I'm not crazy and never was, BUT... I was stupid and I'm a lot more careful now and I know when it's too windy.

Kid Show on TV

Kid Show aired on the Nicktoons Network this evening. The above photo is from last weekend when Jess and I flew down to Burbank for the awards ceremony/creator's night. That there is a 4 foot LEGO statue of Spongebob Square Pants.

Kid Show didn't win any awards, but is eligible for an Audience Choice award, so go and vote for it if you can at You can only vote for the next 24 hours, so hurry. Thanks!

Stan Lee was the special guest at the event. He's such a cool guy. If you're not sure who he is, he's the guy that created Spiderman and the X-Men, etc. I'm the kind of person who can never think of a good question during a Q&A, but I managed to squeeze out a decent one: "At what point did you realize you HAD to do what you do?" and his answer lives on in my mind forever.

He said that he was about to quit. He had been doing comics for almost 20 years already, but they weren't his ideas. His wife suggested he make one his own way just to try it out before he quits. So he does, and it's a comic called The Fantastic Four. BANG

mah girl

I got a good lady. Look at how nice she is. I love her so.

The photo was taken with a friend's Nikon D90. It's an unbelievable camera and I can't wait to get myself one. The camera can take HD video clips as well. Sweeet.

Also, something very unfortunate happened the other night. I went to pick up our 4 month old kitten, Rueben and he decided to freak out. Before I knew anything had happened, I had a claw straight through my lower lip, literally. It entered he top of my lip and popped out just below my lip, where normal skin starts. The worst part was that he couldn't get his claw out and I started screaming like an idiot and crying. Jess was in the other room thinking that I was just being a goof, instead of having a traumatic experience.

I clutched Rueben's arm and held it tight, so he couldn't rip my lip open and ran into the other room where Jess was. She saw what was up and started screaming. She held Rueben up for me while I tried unhooking my lip. It felt very similar to unhooking a fish from a hook. Finally I got myself free and ran to the bathroom to see what the damage was.

It bled a bit, but after about 10 minutes there was no blood and no pain really and it hasn't given me any trouble since. It's a great story and I can say that I involuntarily got my lip pierced by a cat. That's something very few people can say.
