So Inktober is 4 days away from starting. October 1, 2020. My plan for Inktober 2020 was is to make a short comic utilizing the prompts as best I can.
Despite not feeling as prepared as I should be, I’m really looking forward to this year. I’m writing/illustrating a short comic around the prompts.
Winema is a brainchild when it comes to languages, even though everyone just wears translators. Little did she know that her “useless” skill would be the key to saving everyone on The Atlas from a band of Reaperi pirates.
It’s a fun, thrilling story that I look forward to sharing with you. Here’s a time lapse of my creation of the base, The Atlas.
One of the only mobile games I play consistently is NBA2K Mobile. The news came out recently that the main console game is adding WNBA players. Of course, because “the internet” there were numerous detractors of this idea.

Newsarama editor Chris Arrant interviewed designer Tom Muller about his take on the classic X-Men logo for the two upcoming series, Powers of X and House of X.

Who can’t pass up a good deal? Or a good deal on entertainment?
Redbox has “older” movies BACK IN THE BOX for just $.99 a night! It’s a pretty sweet deal for movie watchers and maybe it’ll push you over the decision making edge to see that movie you missed out on. You know the one I’m taking about.
This is a great idea by Redbox and I look forward to taking advantage of it.
If I have the time. And there’s something I haven’t seen yet. And my wife and I can agree.
