by chance?  just lying around your place of dwelling?  collecting dust?
if so, may i propose you GIVE IT TO MEEEEEEE!!!???!!?!!  PLEASE??  i kind of... accidentally broke mine ;_ ;
i'll give you something of equal price.  free drawings? comics? moneys?? what. what do you want?!?!
to discuss barter, trade, and/or give mini-quests i must complete in order to get this thing from you - please respond to my desperate cry through E-MAIL at THEGREYNINJA@GMAIL.COM

must be a wacom bamboo fun stylus.
stylus model: EP155EK
tablet model: CTE-650

i bought a stylus one generation up from the bamboo fun (bamboo pen & touch) and guess what. doesn't work.
cool huh.  turns out if your tablet is 6 years old, side effects are 1. you become EXTREMELY attached to it and see no reason to upgrade, and 2. your stylus is no longer manufactured, making them rare and ever so slightly annoying to purchase from third party vendors.

kickstarter is up, check it out! www.kickstarter.com/projects/8…
if you think it's cool...  you should like, tell your cool friends and stuff. :tmnt1:

**UPDATE**

so.  doin' a comic.  should be done end of april/may-ish, with everything.  28  pages.  most likely will be in pencil, and color.  gonna do some tests in march to see what feels best to me...  
actually was awarded some money to help get it printed and stuff... which is WAY cool, actually!!
gonna be updating with some sneak-peeks in the near future, so stay tuned!  pretty excited!!

so - this leads me to a question for my fellow internet peeps.  
anybody out there have strong opinions on how to go about printing your own comic book?
i know there are sites around like lulu.com, was hoping i could get some pros and cons/opinions in general if you got any.

will be consulting the google as well, but yeah.  trying to reach out to real people always seems like a good idea to me too.
thanks doods!

commented on :iconthemrock:'s journal, so now i gotta spread the love.

be one of the first 10 people to comment on this journal entry,
and i'll add you to a "featured" list.

for the first 10 "chosen ones" to comment on the journal, i'll put his/her name and the three deviations
i like most from his/her gallery on the list.

IMPORTANT
if you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal,
The idea of this is not to get a free feature,
it is to spread art around for everyone.


so yeah.

also, been listening to kondor...  he's just too good..   seriously.  you owe it to everything that's pure and good in this world to listen to his music..  heh.  (i'm actually somewhat serious though.  HIS STUFF IS JUST THAT GOOD!!)

--

A'RIGHT.  i'm not one of those special subcribed/premium whatevers, so i can't do the cool thumbnail thing.  HOWEVER, i can totally do the link thing.  totally.

my blog
  • Listening to: a very random christmas (instrumentals)
so like, i made this portfolio blog thing.  
HERE IT IS!!


but before i start making any big changes,  i thought maybe some of you cool doods could give me some feedback.
if you've got a couple seconds to spare a brotha, any feedback would be awesome.


-thoughts?

-what's working for you, what's not?

-how much context would you prefer for each image (are you into huge long winded explanations? want just a little background? none at all?)

-anything you've seen me do that you'd like to see more of, or isn't up there at all?

-also, i thought it might be cool if there was either a hyperlink for some of the images that showed the development to the final version, or like, a separate section called development where i share a bunch of that stuff....  

the blog is pretty minimal, but i think its what i want for the layout.  i wanted to provide a way that people could look quickly at different things i've done, in an organized way, rather than have to sift through all the random stuff i've got like on deviantart or my personal blog...  i dunno.  waiting to see what people say.


THANKS!!


some music notes:
opening liner on this one had me laughing pretty good - www.youtube.com/watch?v=POnJl8…
was reminded how much i like bossasaurus last week - bossasaurus.bandcamp.com (was specifically listening to STFUYMCA - bossasaurus.bandcamp.com/album…)
decided i need to get my hands on bucket head's album "colma" - www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5QHss…
also been digging this instrumental for quite some time now.. www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQgMUS…

kay bye.
