Down in DC

The ladies were getting hair cuts this past Saturday so I took a few shots from the city as I walked around with the boys. Later on we stopped in Tyson’s for some comic goodness and a discussion with a Batman creative team!

¡Coqui!

There are many things that can remind you of somewhere you hold near and dear to your heart. One such place is the sound of the coquí, a frog native to the island of Puerto Rico.

Comics DNA

Twitter was bombarded in mid-February by #comicsDNA, and it was all Alex Segura’s fault when he tweeted:

NBA 18-19

I haven’t watched this much NBA in years, and I’m enjoying it a lot.

It’s refreshing to see teams like Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Denver doing well. As a Lakers fan, I’m disappointed in this season. There has been drama, but I like some of the young players they have on the roster.

Ai Archives

I was digging through some folders on my computer and didn’t find what I was looking for. I did find these gems from my Computer Illustration class though.

Springtime…Please?

Spring starts on March 20 and my family is aching for warmer weather. It snowed yet again yesterday in Northern Virginia, and so you know what that means: schools closed for two days!

They’re really trying our parental nerves over here. Perhaps it’s an aim at student attrition. “We’ll see how many of them come back when we reopen”

Blaster Found

I loved Transformers as a kid, and one that I still have is Blaster: a red and yellow boom box.

My son is getting more and more into Transformers and so I’ve let him play with this old toy. So when he was playing the Transformers: Forged to Fight game on my phone and he saw Blaster as an available robot in disguise, he had to have it. more “Blaster Found”

Pro Tips: Exhibiting in Artist Alley

Last year I tabled at my first comic convention, AwesomeCon, here in the DC area. I researched best practices and tips leading up to the convention with mixed results.

The conversations were great in this thread, and it’s a valuable resource for anyone entering artist alley.

The Fox

What exactly does the Fox say? According to this Ylvis classic it’s any of these options:

I never heard of this ridiculous song until my eldest daughter begged and pleaded for me to search for it on YouTube. Turns out that Physical Education now includes dancing to folks playing Just Dance. I hope these YouTubers are monetized because they’re making a killing off of schools.

Meat Chowder

I thought I would share an awesome meat chowder we sometimes make. If you enjoy hearty meals and want to get really cozy during the winter, check this bad boy out!

I’m Tie-rific

My boy’s preschool likes to do an event called Donuts for Dad. It’s mostly due to Father’s Day not falling during the school year.

We get to see what they do in class and receive an update on what they’re learning (with the option to enjoy some coffee and donuts).
