A happy little narwhale, that was probably subconciously inspired by an old "Freakazoid" episode, where they had a norwegian language lesson. He needed a friend, so the mermaid and her goldfish decided to hang out her too. Yup. Doo de doo.....Oh, lookee here! Old video game commercials from the past twenty years! Here is the "Secret of Mana" commercial, in German.

My cozy apartment...and Skippy sitting by the stereo. He thinks somebody lives in it. He either wants to be their friend, or to eat them.
This is where Skippy sleeps. Usually he is completey covered.
When he is awake, he is fully exposing himself.
A lovely evening jet stream seen from the Sherman Oaks Galleria.
A post-it on my cube door. This was in my fortune cookie last fall during a very, very, late work night. It explains the angst of that evening.
Some of the many Pinky Streets living on my desk. I have some Neon Genesis Evangelions too. They are koo..
This Nightmare looking guy is from the playstation 2 game, "Okage Shadow King". I haven't had time to play through. The designs are neat in the game. These toys are hard to find. I lucked out and found him at the video game store in the Burbank mall. He is the butler in the game for the Shadow King. The bad guy is the protagonist in the game.
Witches found at Comic Con. They are from an anime called "Tweeny Witches". I would like to watch that show someday. Seems interesting. (Beast Boy's foot is that white piece of paper)
Other stuff that has been going on this weekend. I went with Valerie to Stuart Ng's this weekend. We had dinner at this place called "Musha", a japanese pub. There is also one in Santa Monica. It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! There is a large stone table everyone sits around, and you order appetizer type plates and share them with people in the rest of your group. It was the best meal I've had in awhile. Highly recommended.
I also saw "The Corpse Bride" this weekend. It was pretty good. I don't want to compare it to "Nightmare", but there wasn't as many bells and whistles in it. It was still a beautiful film, and there were alot of nice bits in it. It's dedicated to Joe Ranft, who tragically passed away recently. He was a very important talented story artist at Pixar. There was also a piano near the beginning of the film that had Harryhausen engraved on it. I would like to see it again just for the eye candy. The theatre we saw it in the sound levels were way distorted, so I do need to see it again. Couldn't tell what the characters were saying during the Bone Jangles song. POOP ON EDWARD'S THEATRES! Well, whoever worked on the movie, GOOD JOB!!! :D
I got to play the first "Katamari Damacy" game at Val's. She's right, the physics in that game are INSANE! Stoopid link of the day:

Otter for a co-worker who requested it. He is holding an abalone (which is also called a "Geoduck" me thinks, pronounced "gooey-duck". Go
When I was in 4th grade there was play that every child in Washington State had to be involved with. It was for the centenial and was called "Washington for Me". I got to be the Geoduck girl and dance around with a bucket, and big straw hat. It was cool. The song went:
"Gooey duck, gooey duck, get a gooey duck,
get a duck, get a gooey duck,
Give a duck a day..."
Which sounds rather offensive now that I'm older. (I just found the song, the scary thing is, I got the words right after all these years.
The apple IIgs game "The Oregon Trail" came up at work also. I did not realize it was such a widely played game at schools during the late 80's early 90's. We had to have five or six kids per computer it seemed. An explanation here for anyone who doesn't know.
Another of note:(may not be safe for childrens and puppies)

Heather has a blog! You can see demons and hairdressers there.
Why am I in love with this game although I haven't had the chance to play it? Maybe I will next weekend?
Here is something I drew recently for someone I owed a post-it drawing. They made this awesome clean drawing of Dexter, Buttercup, and Bloo dressed up as some other superhero characters.

Looks like some stuff might be missing or not priced right yet. Here is the link.
No drawing today 'cause I left the post it at work. I had dinner with Mary at the new Macaroni Grill at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. I drew a demon cat but I didn't take it.

...but the car is still super dirty. The car does not need oil changes except for every 5,000 miles for the first 15,000. Yippeee!! So today's theme is break out the sweaters, and the lion is very golden book. The red was pretty, it looked like it would be a nice lion mane.
It's almost here! One of the bestest days of the year!!!! The drawing from yesterday was stupid, so I did another drawing that is also stupid. Yesterday's looks like SkyDoll. Not that it's a bad thing, but that wasn't on purpose. Just enjoying a clean drawing desk and not paying attention to what I'm doing. It feels like Autumn. Clicky for bigger image.
There seems to be alot of July Films going on in her sweater. If that makes any sense. I got to see an episode with a big bear in it today. I think it'll air in November.

That's what I did this weekend. Ooh, and prolonged freelance, and I'm starting on a long needed personal project. Also, I made a new crappy cover for my portfolio site, which I should redo, 'cause the hands ick me out. As do other things.
There is a larger version of this image
Some funny stuff I found:
This is funny with the sound turned up, and it explains how my brain works, as does Valerie's. And Heather. Mary and Abby are too educated to have this emotion.

Also, here is a sketch of Strawberry Shortcake.
I plan to finish this when I get the chance. I had a little post-it marker drawing I was going to put up, but one of my coworkers bought it from me for six cents. It was an ugly girl face. Oh well.
