Machine Man 2020

Continuing to fiddle around with Kyle Webster brush presets. This is the evil Arno Stark Iron Man of 2020, one of the villains of the Barry Windsor Smith Machine Man limited series, and one of my first introductions to Iron Man.

Silver Surfer and Galactus - digital drawing

I drew this just using Photoshop. I have all these awesome Kyle T. Webster brush pre-sets, and I never use any of them. I was trying to play around with them and see what the different ones do. The problem is, there are so many, this morning I can’t remember the names of the ones I liked. I’ll try something like this again, and will remember to write down the names of the brushes I enjoy using the most while I try and get better at drawing digitally.

"we are left with nothing except… C+C Music Factory, Color Me Badd and the Devil himself, Vanilla Ice"

For a long time after finished Freddie & Me, I didn’t want to listen to Queen anymore. I was all Queen-ed out. In recent months, happily, I’m coming back to it.

I was driving around with my kids, and Bohemian Rhapsody came on. I was pleased that instead of asking me to turn it off and put on FROZEN, my daughter wanted to listen. Everytime the song breaks from the operatic bit into the dahn dahn dahhnn dan dan rock guitar bit, I feel the urge to do the head-banging bit from Wayne’s World, but always stop myself, because I’m too uptight about being corny. This time I let go a bit, and allowed myself to just enjoy the music and the pleasure of sharing it with my kids.

Diary Comic 9/6/14 Getting my daughter to ride her bike

The part where I lose my temper isn’t the part that ever goes up on Facebook.

I can’t remember who it was (maybe Dylan Horrocks?), but I saw someone saying that one way to look at Social Media is to think of your Facebook/Twitter presence as like your role-playing game avatar - a character you have created and maintain in the campaign of living a life online. My Facebook character is an easy going fun-loving Dad. He does very well in the ongoing quest to get lots of likes and comments.
