cap, captain miss america
To start, I found this comic today and felt it deserved notice:

That's from Claus Thomsen's The Dictator. It's about a week old, but hey, I think it does a good job of getting the point across. Apologies for the layout stretcheroo but I think in this case it's worth it.

A lot of what I do at work is read comics. It's giving me an opportunity to really catch up on a lot of comics that I enjoy but don't have friended on LJ. Today I also discovered this comic: My Cardboard Life. Is that not the cutest? whimcee, it actually kinda reminds me of some of the art you post; you should check it out!

I just came back from getting to meet callmecaito and her boyfriend! They were both lovely and we had a nice dinner.

I am not big on set New Year's Resolutions per se, but I like the idea of using New Year's as a goal-sticker type place. So I am trying to make myself be more constructive and do more productive things. I want to try to do something to improve myself every day that I can feel accomplished in doing. On Saturday, I downloaded over a thousand new fonts. Yesterday I read part of a book and started learning how to make fonts, and that was after going to meet liret's grandma. Today I am going to read some more of the book and clean my apartment back up-- it is suffering because of the vacation; I have not been home enough to clean. But before last week, I had managed to clean my apartment at least once a week, so I am going to do that now. If I have time, I am also going to plug in my tablet and draw a little.

Ooh, fonts. When I was about eleven I tried to "design a font" with Appleworks Paint. Needless to say it did not go so well. I'd love to see what you come up with, once you get there.

I will definitely be posting it!

I think We The Robots tries to emulate the handicraft feel to an extent, but this actually is a handicraft comic. And she really plays with the textures and materials, and uses them as the punchlines of the comic, whereas We The Robots really only uses one texture plus ink. It really comes across best because Philippa Rice really makes the objects play into the visual gags she creates, which I think is kind of awesome.


Hi Zia. I'm Glad you liked it! Regards Claus Thomsen
