Everyone listen up because I am now a full-time employed artist. RAD. I work for, an awesome company that's super awesome!

So now that I'm arting it up all the time I have hit this insane production streak. I've been drawing like nonstop. THAT MEANS there might be a little ol' webcomic on the way, and even though this is the third time I've redrawn the same first five pages dammit, I'm really serious about it now. Here's a drawing of me and Adam ready to kick some ass with our Magic Forest gear.

Comic Con was fantastic as always and I got my picture taken with Patton Oswalt and he could not look more pissed off. I'll post it later. Also we saw a special screening of CHOKE which was also completely great and did the book insane justice.

More later because right now I am so cleaning stuff up because it's the weekend and I have the time to and you have no idea how long it's been since the word "weekend" meant what it means to most normal people.

Recent Stuffs

Just so everyone knows I've taken a part-time job as a caricature artist and it's one of the smartest and most rewarding things I've ever done, and I've only been doing it for two weeks. Not only that but I get to work in a shopping center called the Garden Walk and it's right next to Disneyland and I don't think I need to say much beyond that, except for the fact that sometimes the company I'm employed with lets me do facepainting IN Disneyland. This is also radical. So now I'm technically a lower-tier Disney cast member and sometimes I get to wear a costume and walk through parade floats on my way to work. Yesterday I saw Peter Pan in the cafeteria and he was playing a pink DS. This may be the greatest time of my life.

So I really appreciate the fact that Adam has taken the initiative to ride a bike to and from work (a ten mile trek) but it seriously takes him like three years to get home every night. It's so quiet here! I'm drinking by myself and I am bloated with PF Chang's because they are the only restaurant in Garden Walk that will validate my parking! Plus they pour a big glass of scotch.

Wall E

This movie is utterly amazing. Fuck it, I say it every year, but this is Pixar's best. Seriously. They can't possibly top what they just did and it's fine because their best is pretty much the closest thing I have to prove there is a God.


No, really, it's brilliant. I can't describe it very well but I just read this review which I think sums up how I feel:

This movie is poignant yet subtle, terrifying but beautiful, and one of the most heartfelt and romantic films I've ever seen. Sure, okay, but let's remember, NONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS HAVE FACES. PIXAR YOU MAKE MY LIFE WONDERFUL.

Speaking of wonderful god damn it is a good time to be a nerd right now. HOW GOOD IS VENTURE BROS, FOR SERIOUS.


I am really excited too about the movie "Choke" based off Chuck Palahniuk's book, which I just read. I think I get why Adam is so goofy for this guy, his writing is great. The movie looks great. Read the damn book!

And sweet jesus the new Coldplay. You know, I'll admit that I didn't like X&Y. The point is I listened to their first album, went, "Hey, I want more of this" and I got more with their second album. But with their third... I was really disappointed. I thought, "Welp, this is it. They did their thing but it's the same old shit and it's old and I'm over it. They had a good run my god these songs are boring". I blame Gwenyth Paltrow.

But then Coldplay just up and made like, a really fantastic album. They actually decided to have some goddamned fun with their work and the result is stupendous. So yay for that, Viva La Vida, I love every single song on this record. It is lovely and creepy and awesome. And the best part is...


Sorry two people out there who are reading this but I just got off the phone with Brandon and we pretty much had the nerdiest animation geek discussion where I think we literally voiced out opinions on everything that's been happening in animation in the past ten years and the next five years so I'm a little hyped up WHOA breathe.

Happy Anniversary!

Oh wow oh wow it's our one year anniversary and Adam totally got me a Flight of the Conchords framed poster and Okami for the Wii and THIS AMAZING SUPER THIN NEW KEYBOARD OHHH WOW I AM TYPING ON IT NOW.

Just thought I'd let you know, internet. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to really celebrate.

Economic Stimulus

Ooh, that sounds sexy, doesn't it? Well it is! Opening up my bank account and seeing an extra six hundred dollars is very sexy!

You know what else is sexy? This fucking rad jacket I bought with my free government money. Oh my god it looks like something I would draw on my characters and also now I look like my character in Rock Band.

And the best part about it is, I had to feel good about buying this stupidly expensive jacket because I AM DOING MY PART TO SAVE THE AMERICAN ECONOMY.

So I never thought I'd say this, but thanks for the sweet jacket, George Bush!

Dreams Do Come True

They do, because Freakazoid is getting a DVD release and that's all the proof you need.

It'd be really great if my car could stop being such a dick for five minutes so I could afford things. Lewis Black is performing in Long Beach and Flight of the Conchords tickets are way too much money. Brake/rotor and a radiator replacement in one month? Really, Mini? Come on, baby, why you always gotta make me hit you?

I am up to my ears in work so time to focus on personal art is rare (plus I got a Wii) but here's the final ink of that warrior elf chick. I stumbled upon my old rapidographs not too long ago and to my surprise most of them weren't clogged, so I wanted to see if I could still work the inking magic I worked so well back in my high school days.

A little rusty but not too bad! I forgot what a bitch these pens were and why I probably stopped using them (I found a Micron when I was out and about and snatched it up with wide eyes) Sorry, art nerd talk. I'll be quiet now.

Having a boyfriend who is also a chef rules. I just made the best eggs ever thanks to his tutelage.

Okay, no joke a few days ago a guy with a big skeevy goatee and long hair was driving a fancy Cadillac or somesuch down the 405 and his license plate was, and I shit you not, "<3 2 Yiff".

I was driving down the freeway next to a big creepy totally out of the closet and proud of it furry. Ohhhh man.

WIP: Metal Bikini Warrior

Like bad ass hot elf chicks in metal bikinis? Of course you do! So here's this:

I'm making her myself.

Um. What?

What the hell are these "Pro-Anorexia" sites all about? Seriously, look it up on google. There are people posting to each other about how fat they are and how they're not going to eat and how excited they are about not eating. Jesus christ, my gender has hit a whole new level of psycho. If anyone ever meets a girl who thinks it's totally okay to have a few waffles and egg whites and then throw up and have nothing but water the next day so they can lose twenty pounds, RUN. These chicks are broken.

The Annies (Warning: NERD ALERT)

Sit down kids, it's storytime.

So a few months back, out of nowhere, I get a call from ASIFA asking me to be a nomination judge for voice acting for the 35th Annual Annie Awards (The Oscar of Animation). Uh, shit yes says I, and I scoot off to Burbank to sit in a room with a bunch of people who have been working in animation for twenty plus years and holy crap that guy won an emmy for an episode of Pinky and the Brain he wrote. (Nerdy, yes, please stay with me) So after an entire day of watching countless clips of mostly Class of 3000 and Shrek, me and a panel of seven or so people come up with the nominations. I should note that I made everyone rewatch the entire clip of Skinner freaking out from Rataouille and then convinced them Ian Holm deserves the nom. I go home that night with two seats to the Before, Event, and Afterparty. Yay.

It's the big night. Adam has been plotting and searching for an outfit that will compliment my green silk dress for weeks. We're hot, we're stylin', we have a posh late lunch at Mozza, a "very LA" pizza parlor. It was awesome. Down to UCLA to Royce Hall. People are dressed up. Lots of people in animation aren't very attractive but I'm way excited. There is Seth Green! The shortest man alive. Oh wow, John K. Who the hell is the guy wearing the kilt and the etnies? Is that Weird Al?? shit! Doo dee doo wine OHGOD CARL GREENBLATT.

Ceremony was very funny. Tom Kenny hosting. Lots of talented people. Then it was the voice acting category! Eartha Kitt for television? What? Okay... and for film?



Anyway. It's the afterparty and I need a drink. I go to the bathroom and come back to the party, I've lost Adam. I turn, immediately to my left, and see Brad Bird.

I run.

I grab a glass of wine and sip with all my might. Adam's there and I'm trying to choke down as much shitty wine as possible. The whole time Adam is monitoring Bird's movements, and finally I get to the point where I might not pee myself and cry if I get to shake his hand.

... and he's gone.

Just like that, he teleported back to his fortress of supremely rad solitude and Brad Bird was gone. I totally fucked my chance at meeting him.

I'm dumb.

But it was okay. We met James Hong, Carter Goodrich, Eric Goldberg, and most awesomely, Patrick Warburton. All in all an awesome time. I look forward to a day I may attend the Annies again, but actually being a colleague with some of these people instead of like, you know... being terrified by everyone.

It's been forever and I miss you, blog! So much has been happening! I have art!

I have this quasi-character of a train robber chick because I am a big nerd who likes old western train robbery. Plus you can totally see her bra.

Okay, the other night Adam was putting lemons in our disposal and this is what it looked like. Our disposal literally shakes the entire sink and some of the kitchen when we turn it on, which leads me to believe a devious little beast followed us home from the magic forest and made its home in our sink. This is what he looks like. Every time I draw Adam it turns out more awesome (except for his crab claw hand, there).The first color thing I've done in forever and I KNOW THE LIGHTING IS WRONG I AM FIXING thank you. Jesus christ I need to finish this thing.

Okay, Cloverfield. Adam and I went to see this movie. My little sister, who is scared by absolutely everything, tells me that it's fantastic and she'd totally see it again. I think, "Wow, if Taylor can handle it, it mustn't be too bad."

I was wrong.

This movie horrified me and I had to leave. I actually had to leave the picture. Apparently I left before any of the crazier shit happened, and for anyone who already saw it, you know exactly what I'm talking about. I'm an enormous wuss. What the fuck, JJ Abrams. Way to make me scared forever of a sudden terrifying monster attack by God knows the fuck what.

In happier news I am rocking Pokemon Diamond. Five hundred pokemon are way too many in my opinion but I'll do my best with it I guess. OMG friend me so we can trade.

More soon? Isn't there always?
