Happy Valentine’s Day. Every year I think I should do some kind of True Loves Valentine’s contest or something, and every year I just manage to get my act together for Manien’s birthday the week before, and suddenly Valentine’s Day has come and gone. Anyways, here is a highly romantic installment of True Loves 3. In other TL3 news, Manien and I did some writing on Monday, and got up to page 109 of 120ish. The end is near!
Manien and I have traditionally not done anything much for Valentine’s Day. Maybe use it as an excuse to buy some champagne, like this year. As I was heard to say earlier “IN MY HOUSE WE DROP LOVE EVERY SINGLE DAY!!” Also, we just last month celebrated 16 danged years together.
I’m having a surprising amount of trouble finding some love songs to post. My heart on fire.
Oh hey, how about a bit of the Blues Brothers? Watching this movie recently, I wondered how much influence their dancing had on my dance stylings when they eventually emerged.
New True Loves 3. We are now in an unusual state where I have drawn well ahead of where the online comic is at. I am really trying to motor on this. For a moment when I checked the post this morning I was confused as to whether that was the right comic up or not. Wait have coming events happened yet?
My comic Farm School from Retrofit is still up for pre-order. I was thinking how this band A Silver Mount Zion was somehow integral to the initial mood that informed the story.
Here is a drawing my cousin found in an old scrapbook. I did it around 1981 when I was deep in my obsession with the Robert Altman Popeye movie. Then I did a quick drawing to see if I remembered how to draw Olive Oyl.
Last weekend in the night someone took the caps off two drains beside our house. Manien and I pondered why someone would do this. I had my suspicions…
As Farm School is about to be released, and I close in on the end of True Loves 3, I try not to get ahead of myself, but I do start thinking about other stories I want to get to eventually.
Whoops, I forgot to put an update last week! Go read two new installments of True Loves 3 in one! Manien and I did some writing last week and we’re getting ever closer to the end! The end of the trilogy!
In other exciting comic news, my book from Retrofit Comics is now available for pre-order. It is a pastoral post-apocalyptic walking story. Here is the cover and a few images.
And because I feel like an update isn’t complete without a video, here is some Django Django, who I have been enjoying.
Where has the time gone? I was so busy through December, visiting Ontario, getting my comic Farm School together for Retrofit Comics, and then you know, holiday loafing.
I was feeling all jazzed to do a Best of 2012 list of music for a while there, but I sort of realized it would just be collecting videos I have posted here over the year. And I suspect most of the things I’ve been enjoying this year are not from this year! So I lost enthusiasm.
My next big project is getting back on a little thing called TRUE LOVES 3! Meanwhile, here are some drawings and things.
A drawing I did, on my flight to Ontario, of my one time adbusters boss Kalle Lasn from an article in the Walrus.
Here are some comics I did about my trip. I have a whole other section I would like to add, but I’m not sure when I’ll have the time.
