Birthday Gifts

Happy Birthday to me! I got a number of presents, but as usual Caleb's was my favorite. He drew me as a lightning wizard and named me Mikern Thundarnos. I was hoping for something more unpronounceable but I was proud nonetheless.

I asked if I could someday redraw one of his many character designs in my own style, and he said "No way in HECK! You try to do that and I'll take you outside and give you a Southern-style WHOOPIN'!"

He's from Alabaman and I'm from Georgia and all Southerners know that ain't no drawin' worth no cans of whoop being broke ope.

Caleb also included some free advice as part of his gift. He prefaced it by saying, "This is the best advice I could ever give you."

He's probably not far off.

Thanks Caleb, for making it a great birthday. I wish more people in life were overflowing with this kind of untainted personality.

A Caleb Edwards Drawing

Probably my favorite person in the church I attend is a man who was (really) kicked in the head by a horse as a child. It causes him some physical discomfort, and mental challenges, but as a bonus he's been blessed with out-of-this-world creativity. And who doesn't need a little more creativity in their lives?

He came to me tonight and showed me a character for his newest story. I had to question him about some of the aspects of his drawing, and it has been annotated with his explanations.

I asked him to pleeeeeease bring me more drawings in the future so hopefully I will be able post some other characters.

A fate Weetch

This weetch predicts peoples' fates. She's a character in my friend Matt's role-playing campaign. I still believe that traditional role-playing is one of the best exercises for the imagination. I don't do it much anymore, but when I look at my life a lot of the things I'm best originated in skills developed as a role-playing teenager. That and creative writing.

I'm tired. Off to bed.

Just another sartorialist post. Practicing new techniques is all. Experimenting...

Roman Taxi Concept Art

Here's some more Roman Taxi concept work. I did 44 of these since last what, a week and a half? In all it was about two full weeks of work (hours-wise).

My favorite I think is the pimp wagon. I wanted it to be low-rider but alas, we had to concede to the tech team. These are being farmed overseas, hence the notations. Lots and lots of fun, but also a lots and lots of work.
