Busy Busy Busy

Things at work are gettin pretty busy. Ive still been able to keep at the writing ( although you'll have to take my "word" for it...Har har..) I dont get much time to do much else. Ive started a couple other little projects . Not that Ive stopped my first one. I just find myself havin fun at the makin up stuff stage and keepin the pressure of turning this into "somethin too serious" at bay. Last thing I need is another job at home...

I hope to figure out how to post up my writing. May do it in comic form and go page by page ( when I can find the time ). For now heres another character Im fleshin out for a seperate story.



Keep on keepin on!

Meet Stephan..


"So whats new?" some of you may ask. Others may say" whats with all the text? I thought you were a picture guy... " And the majority will quickly look at this post and move on to the next blog ( ..or back to youtube to find something loads more entertaining than this pile...) with out question.

So, to the two people who asked the questions ( My wife and myself ), the answer to the first ( posed by my wife ): Ive have now taken on yet another creative endeavor.. To spend time learning to write.

Writing? I know , Ive lost my mind. This is something Im goin to spend the next little while doing. Just for fun. Something to do to give purpose to my drawings. To make some characters and to get to know them for more than 15 minutes of sketch time. A project of sorts. Something that pushes me beyond my comfort zone. ( Which answers the second of the questions " whats with all the text " asked by -- yours truly. )

Finally, for the rest of you who peeled out and are now watching that hilarious clip of the monkey drinkin his own pee... oh right, I dont need to say anything to you guys. You've already left...

Muhndee is the first story I will tell and have been writing him for the past five days. ( you know you're impressed by that :) I havent decided where Im gonna post this prose of mine at the moment. I may put the actual stories in another blog and post the drawings / concepts here to keep this one the " lookat the pictures kids:)" blog.

I ask for forgiveness now to those who were expecting something far more enthralling...

With that said, on to todays post.. Finally...

Heres the second character in this so called story Ive been writing up. His name is Stephan.( Havent had much time to refine him or Muhndee because I want to spend more time focused on the words rather than the pics at this point. ) Dont worry, it won't make sense down the road either, 'cause I just started writing. I have no clue as to what Im doin and that will be the recurring theme in my upcoming posts....

Alright Muhndee. I posted as per our agreement. I expect tomorrow to go smoother than it did every Monday since I was born....

Sooooooo....

I was having a discussion with Monday today ( Spelled "Muhndee" ). He said he would ease up on me this year if I spent more time fleshing out his world and improving his rep.
He enjoyed the posts that he was featured in , but thought I could shed more light on why people misunderstand him ( including myself .) In return, he would help me learn to be more creative and not harrass me long enough that I can do it properly.
So there you have it. My new direction ( and personal project ) for the year. Basically Ive lost my mind and am having conversations with Monday... ( *ahem *I mean Muhndee ) and sharing them with you. Whats it gonna hurt? Will be nice just to not dread him for the next year. Who knows we could even be friends...
So playin around with him a bit with designs. His hair is rockin , but will keep workin on him. And theres one thing we havin in common: loungin around in the undies so we're off on the good foot! Let see how far in to this guys world I get to before I turn into a complete whack job!
Happy New Year All!! I know i know ... you thought it would be cooler...
