Valkyrie's Lament
Her eyes they sparkle like whiskey, and her eyes are Bombay sapphire. But mine are as grey as the storm and the thunder clouds my sight I see the sparks flying between them, the chain lightning that meets in their eyes. I'm feeling the wind rush from within me as I am caught by surprise. The Valkyries they show me no quarter, For I am the fool who drew her sword. I sink to the bottom of a top shelf bottle, after I am thrown overboard. The weight of my tears drag me down, as I reach for a merciful hand, All they have left to say is "just paddle, you fool, least you drown." They watch the sunset far above me, as the bright sky is replaced with black I fulfilled my worst fear When I followed my tears Now they may never come back.

Valkyries
They swooped down like Valkyries, these Angels, with swords at the ready. I opened a door too soon, Explosive decompression took our breath from us. The void is growing, I am on the outside looking into my happily ever after. I open my mouth to protest but only Red Flags spew out, fluttering in the tail winds, they push me further and further. A walking Pity Party where everyone is a wallflower and the music is heavy Sobs. They return to Valhalla; my stilettos are Lead.

Red Tape and Iron Wills
My spine is reinforced steel   And my will is iron. I must sharpen my wits   On the grit of the world’s ignorance, And parry it’s dull insults with   A tongue with an edge like a razor. I traded my safety, my security and my relationship   For a new set of pronouns. But when the follicles frolic The “Sir’s” swarm like bees, They buzz and sting, leaving me   Feeling swollen and   No quantity of Epinephrine will help me to breath. And I am carded when I use the ladies room,   By Gestapo pigs with Roaming hangs, Waving Ferris bands as they Demand that I show them my papers. I am told I have the freedom to

His Hands slow as glaciers, a shiver up her spine, their eyes met in understanding, a moment frozen in time. Her arms around his neck, his hands under her hips, they could smell the summer air, as they tasted the other’s lips. His eyes the color of autumn, hers a chilled winter blue, they shared a look of mischief, and in that moment they knew. As her voice cracked so did his resolve, they made love until winter when the world would dissolve; two hearts in the snow, pulsing hot and heavy wearing out the leaf springs in the bed of his cherry-red Chevy

Trial and Error...and customer Service.
Just got a fat shipment of fresh business cards, while trying to remedy a color issue (the first batch of 250 was  too dark with foil printed on the front and text in black) so I lightened the color of the image and changed the text to red, but without the foil to to contrast the text again bled into the background, so I have 1000 business cards that don't look so good on the front but the back turned out perfectly I guess I could always sponge the existing front with black ink and then the image on the back would become the front, since it has all the prevalent information on it, the front just has my devil logo and says 'Tohper Baker, Artis

I'm a little pissed that I can't afford Adobe Photoshop, I'm having to rely on the open source option, GIMP, and while it's better than nothing I can't learn the more advanced stuff for Photoshop on it, because when I get too used to it at home, I'm seriously fucked when it comes to using Adobe's in class. While Gimp has it's limitations, I'm enjoying using the dodge and burn tool to sculpt form out of solid shapes, see my July Submissions to see what I mean. I think What I need to focus on is building a library of backgrounds to insert as needed through out the comic when I get started on it. When I get back to Austin I'll have to do some dr
