so last night I had a dream that everyone thought I was charlie day?


(we’re practically identical!)

and I had been hired to play spider-man in some weird marvel crossover movie?

and i spent the whole time freaking out because i didn’t know my lines because i wasn’t actually charlie day, but thank god spiderman got violently killed at the beginning of the movie so I didn’t have to do anything but hang upside-down with my throat “slit”.

Also, it had weirdly religious undertones (there were two other super heroes killed and hung from the ceiling like spooderman, and–oh, by the way, we were hung in some kind of temple–we were referred to as “the fallen disciples”??)

now, i’ve always loved my iconography used in violent, disrespectful, and ironic ways, but this was just SUCH an odd dream it added another layer of what the heck??

but anyway, i did a quick sketch to get it out of my system before work

DREAM

nirryp0five steel faces glimmer in the fog
a lone ship prowls the ocean red
two fathers slain by the blade of an axe
a soul won’t rest till four more lie dead

(hahaha dat quality, you can tell i spent forever on this (i didn’t. at all.) hopefully the future pages will be better but i won’t promise anything)

THE LAUNCH OF THE NEW ADVENTURES OF NIRETH OF NORMANDY!

that title was not misspelled on purpose

my god what have i come to

anyway!!

NIRRYCOVERI’ve started working on the first page and hopefully will have it up by tomorrow!!
Oh, yeah, and if anyone is really good at writing (because i’m not, my handwriting looks like “the writing of a five-year-old born with feet instead of hands who also is illiterate” -my dear friend matt, thanks for that) I would love to have someone on board who could help me write in the dialogue? otherwise it will probably just be in my mangled scrawl

and again!! if you guys are interested in being included, just let me know:

a- if anything has changed (looks, personality) about your character

b- how they would feel about a revenge campaign (against it, for it, neutral, etc)

Yo so what’s up with everyones’ characters? did anybody change appearance/personality/quirks anything? Because Nireth DEFINITELY needs a revision (Oh my god, looking back now i’m just like… WHAT?!) Looking at how lame she was makes me realize how cool YOUR characters are, and I want to do some art and/or animation of them!!

*QUICK UPD8!!*

just finished a quick sketch of Nireth’s new look (maybe??)!

nirethupd8

i am taking a break from a bigger project that I don’t really want to work on, so if anyone wants me to draw their character PLEASE let me know

like seriously

if i have to draw any more chains i’m going to drop-kick an infant

I MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!!

Regardless of what the rest of this post says I want you guys to, in the very least, make a comment about how everything is going for you!!

anyway now for the rest of it

am i like even allowed to be here anymore?? i’m technically a year past adulthood now, which is weird to think about but!! for any of you guys who are at all worried about growing up (Cos I know i SUPER was), it’s really not different at all.

my friends and I still draw silly pictures and write stories together, we make videos about wizards from outer space and talk about how cool dinosaurs are

but anyway

COLLEGE

IT’S AMAZING!!

I’m currently at USC as an animation student and it’s the most fun I’ve ever had in my life!! They let us jump in right away and start doing whatever we wanted, which was amazing!

But anyway, after a summer of creative stagnation it got my wheels turning again and GUYS

GUYS CAN WE WRITE A STORY

AND DRAW PICTURES TOGETHER

AND MAKE UP AWESOME CHARACTERS THAT GO ON SUPER SWEET ADVENTURES

BECAUSE YOU GUYS ARE ALL FANTASTIC AT IT

AND I MISS IT

AND I MISS YOU

I’m sorry for my prolonged silence but like every now and then I’d be like, “Gosh, I wonder where the good ol’ Thunder Kids are at?” and then I’d get sad that we don’t do our thing any more.

but let’s get going again!!

summer time is almost here, and I’m super sad to leave my AWESOME school and my AWESOME friends, but I’m also glad I’m gonna get the chance to work on stuff I want to (as opposed to class assignments, although whether or not I actually follow them is debatable… there’s an anime about that) and i would love it if i got to work on some stuff with you all!

ok i have to get back to working on my friend’s thesis but TTFN and TTYS!

Hey guys, sorry it’s been so long. I guess this blog is pretty much dead, though. It’s pretty sad. :( I’ve been busy at my new school (well I guess it’s not new anymore, it’s been a year). The workload is crazy heavy! But I’ve made great friends, which is awesome. And it is totally acceptable to be a huge nerd like I am.

I found so many great TV shows, which is a curse because they eat into my time so much. BUT I LOVE TV SHOWS!!!??!?

If anyone else posts, maybe I’ll post something more substantial later on. But this blog really seems like it’s hit a dead end! ;(

Can you believe it’s been nearly two years since I last posted here? I apologize for the hiatus, I still actively read all of your guys’ (Is that the correct plural?)  posts, but there’s not much to post.
