I promised myself that I wouldn't put "fan art" here, but it couldn't be helped. Aku draws himself; he's just that good of a character design.

I can hear my older brother laughing at me through the internet. (He compared me to Aku once.) Whatever, man. I'm still patiently waiting for that Samurai Jack movie to come out.

Oh, finaly a not-Queequeg! Not that that makes it better than a Queequeg, but still.

My favorite pen has been resurrected. It's a size M Schaeffer calligraphy pen that takes those little tubes of ink refills. I put it away years ago because the ink bleeds through acrylic paints when I just want the lines to stay covered, but then I picked it up again and damn it feels so good to draw with! Well, after I got all the dried ink crap out of the nib, it did.

The Decemberists' "The Legionaire's Lament" came up on shuffle mode as I was drawing. Perhaps my burn-out with that band's music has lightened?

I should start scanning other things that I've been working on, and soon. But not before I post Queequeg #1, drawn before I knew what my Fun-a-Day theme was going to be.

Then, I was bummed out and hadn't picked up a pencil to draw for a few weeks. Then I came across the meme where you draw your 10 favorite characters and have people guess them, and used it to force myself to get back on my feet. Amongst Katchoo, Roger Sterling, and Daleks, was Queequeg!

And it was all downhill from there…

The Finished Fun-a-Day show was fantastic. I met an entirely new crowd of people and saw some new great artwork and writing, which is something that everyone needs to do every now and then. I'll post a few photos of the show soon.

For now, here's… you guess it! A Queequeg! This one's a painting on a piece of weird, orange-painted material that I found around Salem State University. It's the biggest one, about 20x30. It was influenced by Saul Bass, uh, a little.
