Day 1203 of 365 4 lyf. Tryptophan. Most people say it’s a myth. That turkey doesn’t make you drowsy. Those people can go to hell. Had thanksgiving dinner with Steph’s family, came home and tried to do some work. Problem is I’m beat. Big day tomorrow. Time to start the Chrismas shopping season. 365 days


Day 1185 of 365 4 lyf. Ok, yeah… I’ve done this shot before. I’ve done a lot of the ones I’ve been doing recently before. I just don’t have time to be interesting lately. I don’t have time to do much of anything. I was thinking the other day how much I used to love…


Day 1128 of 365 Again. I was being lazy today. I wasn’t planning on it, but I was busy all day. Steph is away on a two day bikeride thing so I spent the whole day cleaning. Once it started getting late, I realized I needed to take a picture of something, but was too…


Day 1090 of 365 Again. Haven’t talked about my webcomic lately. But yeah, it’s still going strong. In fact, I’m pretty happy with the current storyline. Do you like ninjas? This comic is for you. Do you like pirates? This comic is for you. Do you like shipwrecks? The comic is especially for you. Some…


Day 1047 of 365 Again. Well, my computer is at least usable now. I still don’t have everything set up exactly how I like it, but life goes on and I’ll have to just cope for a bit. I’m still quite happy with how much faster it is, and though I kind of didn’t want…


Day 1003 of 365 Again. The problem with spending Saturday night getting wasted is that it means I have to work twice as hard on Sunday to get the Cosmic Hellcats done, and working so much was why I needed a break in the first place. Still, I got it done. And I’m happy with…


Day 911 of 365 Again. Today was my grandmother’s funeral. I skipped it, as I always do. I’m told the service was nice. After the funeral, the rest of the family came back to the hotel and we watched a video slideshow I put together at my mother’s request. What I didn’t know is that…


Day 835 of 365 Again. Wheee! It’s lazy photo day. Exciting, isn’t it? Was too tired to do much of anything today. Didn’t even leave the house. Spent the morning working on photos from yesterdays ubermegashoot and then in the evening I switched over to working on the comic. Didn’t get around to taking a…


Day 751 of 365 Again. It’s Labor Day weekend. A time of relaxing. That’s what I tried to do today. Spent the day at home hanging out with Steph. Something we don’t get enough time to do lately. We had a little BBQ (again) and hung out outside and talked. When I wasn’t doing that,…


Day 748 of 365 Again. Shot a very interesting episode of the 365 Days podcast today. My old friend Mickey Sacks, is in town as she travels across the country on her move, and we took the oppotunity to include her and several others in the show live via satellite (that’s cellphone and internet chat…



Day 697 of 365 More.

Where does the time go?

Lately, I’ve been waiting later and later to start even thinking about 365. And a lot of the time I am so busy I really can’t come up with anything interesting.

Especially on days which I’m working on the comic, which is really a minimum of about four nights a week. I just end up coming home from work and drawing, writing or coloring all day. Next thing i know, it’s like a quarter to 11 and I haven’t even thought about my shot. So I take something quick and get back to work and the next thin I know its quarter after two and I haven’t posted yet.

Honestly, I’m loving it. I have wanted to do a comic since I was seven years old, and even though Hellcats isn’t as popular as I’d like it to be, its still been a blast and pretty rewarding.

I just wish other parts of my life didn’t have to suffer so much to make it happen. Seriously, if I could just sell more copies of the book or get like a few hundred daily viewers looking at the banner ads, then maybe someday I could make enough money that that could be my day job.

And I wouldn’t end up with 365 photos like this.


365 days


Day 554 of 365 More. I’ll sleep when I’m dead. That’s what I think in my head sometimes. After a long week of work, it was time to film a tutorial for the 365 Podcast(iTunes). I was up til 6am filming and editting it. Went to sleep, then got up 4 hours later for some…


Day 515 of 365 More. I’m feeling a little better today. I’m still overworked. I’m still exhausted. But, I’m feeling a bit better about it. I’m almost caught up on the shoots I’ve done so far for the lights show, and should be finishing the rest of them up tomorrow. Then maybe I’ll finish a…
