I have not been drawing in my sketchbook as much as usual the past year I guess. I started it on March 11, 2010 and it is still not done! Determined to get it finished before it goes into a second year, I have been drawing while watching tv and movies. So this drawing was done last night watching the Romantics. Not a great movie, but fine enough. It felt like it should have been a Dogme movie.

Thursday! New True Loves 3 is up!
I felt like linking to some neat things I have seen this week.
Here is a blog with great pictures of debris, for fans of debris.
Here is a like-minded guy who has been getting his design classes to do 100 Day Projects.
Here is a great long interview with Cerebus background man Gerhard. With many examples of his work. Man that guy can background.
And here is a blast from the past, a Prisoners of Gravity from 1993 discussing “cyberbooks.”
Is it Monday already? There is a new True Loves 3 up to brighten your day.
There were a couple of nice reviews of True Loves that appeared on Comic Book Resources the past couple of weeks. Book one here, book two here. Though the book one comments do point out how there isn’t anywhere to read it online. I guess I should fix that one day!
Meanwhile here is a drawing I did of Manien with a pet chicken.
There is a new page of True Loves 3 up today! And here is a cover I whipped up for the iphone/pad/pod app that is in development.
Happy Valentine’s Day! AND Happy True Loves 3 Day! I have put up the first two pages over here. My plan is to update Mondays and Thursdays. Hooray!
Oh boy, only three days until TRUE LOVES 3! Excitement!
Also an exciting development is that you should soon be able to read True Loves on your iphone, ipad and isoforth. I will keep you appraised of the progress on the project.
I watched some really fine movies this past week. Easy A– great snappy high school comedy that stays smart and funny right to the end. Never Let Me Go – A low key British movie that starts off as a story about some kids at a boarding school, and then gradually reveals that it is a sort of science fiction movie, and then makes you sad. And the awesome Jack Goes Boating that Manien and I just watched last night, starring (and directed by!) the wonderful Philip Seymour Hoffman. It is what a romantic comedy should be, funny and sweet, not following the ridiculous formula of the “romcom.” Regular people trying to get together, working at it, seeing things aren’t always easy. I really really liked this movie.
February first rolls around again and as each year for the past five or so, we celebrate John Campbell’s Hourly Comic Day by drawing a journal comic each hour you are awake.
