Current Media: Macross Frontier

Early update because I will not be online at midnight as per usual.
I think I mentioned this guy on Twitter, but maybe not. Either way, new sketch, it's overflowing with nerd if you catch the references I make.
In other news, I am now officially on my summer vacation (all one week of it). Woo! If you email me this week there may be some significant lag in me responding.

Media Comment: When you're not watching the high-school shenanigans this show is amazing- space battles are awesome! Some of the character art is a bit off, in my opinion, though it varies for episode to episode: the 3D stuff is consistently jaw-dropping though.

Current Media: Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

It has been far too long since I made a bellcurves comic, so here's a new one. Have a chuckle on me.

Media Comment: The four episodes thus far have been very interesting, which is great because a series like this carries a message that is hard to get people to pay attention to. (HAY GUYS, DISASTER IMMINENT, K?)

Current Media: Bakemonogatari

This sketch was made for a coworker, so it won't hold much meaning for most of the world, but it's still cute.

Media Comment: Long name for a fascinating show. The four episodes I've seen so far have been visually arresting and full of neat little ideas that make me go 'Oh cool!' Art direction is top-notch, and the music is excellent. (The opening to episode 1 is made of win).

Current Media: Honey and Clover

Game humor AND relationship negativism- I'm on a roll! This is the start of a new initiative I'm pushing on the Sauer community. We'll see how that pans out.

Media Comment: I watch the first ep of this a while ago and wasn't interested. I gave the second ep a second chance and it got me that time. I spent my entire Saturday plowing through the whole series in one go, AND LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT. (This, btw, is why the latest SC is yet uncolored).

Current Media: Princess Mononoke

And now for something different. I was doing some woodwork today and decided to do some playing around with my jigsaw. This is what came from it.

Media Comment: This was the first anime I ever watched, and I am still blown away by the quality of art. This is also one of the very few animes I can watch in English (though I still prefer watching shows/movies in their original languages).

Current Media: Jak and Daxter

Here's the update, yet another digital joke. I was surpised by how long I ended up spending on this one: three times what I expected. Oh well.
In case you missed it, I have stopped posting about my updates to Sandstorm Conscience. It updates each Friday-ish.

Media Comment: Platformers are fun, but can be incredibly stupid. Die die die expiriment die die expiriment die move on is not a good design in general. Jak does a pretty good job, but can be very frustrating.

Current Media: Spice and Wolf

Have a lame joke, courtesy of a long overdue cup of coffee one morning. It's kind of sloppily done, but it makes me chuckle.

Media Comment: I remember this show being more technical and less of a love story. Maybe because the last time I watched this show the animes preceeding it had more romance? Still a great show.

Current Media: K-On!

I think I may stop announcing SC pages on this site, since it's kind of redundant. Hmm. Well, page 22 is up, go check it.

Media Comment: There better be a second season of this down the road, otherwise K-On has one of the most underwhelming endings ever.

Well, I haven't managed to color the last four SC pages yet (I know, I know), but instead I have managed to whip up a redbook for the Religion sidestory I'm trying to bolt together for NCWCCC. You can check the PDF out here, but I should warn your that my editor has not looked this over yet, so it's still in bad need of revision.

Media Comment: No time for new media this week, I have been overworked with creating new site backends.

Due to last week's delay, today's update is a double spread, which I cannot wait to see in print. Also, if you haven't noticed, I have made a new site design for SC, though I'm not 100% about it yet. Too white.
