Beautiful sweep to this, great colors. One of your best.

It feels more like a statue than a robot, though, because I don't "buy" the joints, especially that hidden shoulder.

It's a good start. Fred Basset is far worse, I agree. But if we can get papers to axe Marmaduke, Fred Basset, Garfield, and some of the other wastes of pulp maybe we can get some great stuff on the page again. Remember when Calvin and Hobbes and Bloom County and Far Side were on the same page? Man, ...

Oh, man, that's FANTASTIC!

Hooray for Derek. He's exactly the kind of creator I want the general populace exposed to (which is why most of the presents I gave out the year before last were copies of his book.)

I took my daughter to see this over the weekend. It was the first movie she's ever seen in a theatre. She keeps talking about it. I love it. (I had already seen it once w/ my wife) Except maybe the track meet at the end. While I loved Violet's bit there, the meet itself, and the idea of the meet did...

I can't remember the last time a "celebrity" death struck me like this. Especially at 87, you think "a life well lived," which was certainly true of Eisner, but still, my reaction was "oh no!" I'll never watch him give out the Eisner awards again, or see him wandering the convention. He'll never wri...

Hey Webdesigners! (Pros)

My dad's cabinet shop is talking to a local guy about doing their website. The guy does quality work. It resizes nicely, looks slick but not so flashy it gets in the way of the content, has a couple interactive forms, that sort of thing. Anyway, he wants to charge $2850 for a website of 20-30 pages....

Betty Boop is pretty good, too.

I was disappointed that Tweety had a human rather than avian pelvic bone.

For those who are interested, the next few days of my journal will be more or less devoted to my Japan trip: http://www.cheeseman-meyer.com/journal.htm Today it's about the great Buddha, and as the week wears on we'll have stuff about culture, philosophy, learning, and the finest cartridge brush pen...

Thanks, guys. I've been vaguely planning this trip for ten years, and actively saving up for it for the past two years now. I'm really excited about it, but a bit sad to be away from my daughter for this long. I'd really like to make a trip every year or two, and in future ones be able to do all sor...

Leaving for Japan

Well, I'm off for 8 days in Japan, leaving bright and early Thanksgiving morning. I've tried to brush up on some Japanese, but I don't think anything useful has stuck. Hopefully I've internalized enough of the etiquette stuff that I won't make too big an ass of myself, though. I won't be able to go ...

But delicate, too, as it seems like if the original author were to come across all this stuff, it'd be really upsetting for him.
