We're going to see a Sumo Championship match in LA tonight. RAD.

My mom got a new mac and we're really looking forward to being able to videochat, I'm getting one of them fancy new iPhones next week, and we've been drinking fresh watermelon juice every morning thanks to our new juicer.

Hows THAT for an update.

Hi there

Ok I guess its time to get off my ass and spend 30 seconds a night keeping everyone updated on my fairly eventful life. Its bonus season around EA and although we didn't hit our numbers enough for the suits to dole out the big moneys, my bonus was bigger than I expected. I think its finally iPhone season! I also got a promotion and a decent raise, which was very welcome.

The project is going great, I'm having a blast and dying to post some of the art I have been up to for the last 2+ years! Its stressful having to keep it all locked away, even the project I was on before it still miles away from release, keep checking back SOMEDAY it'll all be posted here.

Yoko and I just got back from our 6 year wedding anniversary last weekend, man time flies. We went and saw the Beatles "LOVE" Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas and went hiking up in Zion National Forest in Utah, which was stunning. The pics are all on my other machine, maybe I can post some this weekend. We had a great time, we've been together for 8 years and it kinda just keeps getting better. I guess I'm a pretty lucky guy.

It turns out one of the other concept artists at work has a Japanese wife who is friends with Yoko's best friend.... The world really is small, these sort of situations just never stop popping up! My old painting buddy Spinner just contacted me out of the blue, I havent seen him in at least 6-7 years, the internet is amazing for keeping up with old friendships, its been great catching up with him again, even if only virtually! I look forward to communication only becoming faster and easier through the internet over the next couple of years, time is speeding up exponentially, I can feel it. For better and for worse, I feel that to save the planet man will have to leave it soon to orbit around in space while it heals itself without this virus called humanity!

I'm REALLY REAALYYYY going to start updating regularly. I'm gonna find a way to link this thing to my facebook account too, that ought to help keep me on top of it. Later!

So the guys at work finally broke down after my endless begging and bought me a Cintiq, which for those of you who dont know is basically a Wacom tablet with a screen built into it so you just draw directly onto the screen. I've been using the normal tablets for over 10 years, and never realized just how much guesswork goes into drawing because its not ever directly 1:1, and there is really a ton of guesswork as to where a line or stroke is going to end up.

Everything changed, after two days of drawing directly on my screen then painting, I can get decent line work without the entire process of scanning my pencil work, plus all the benefits of doing your drawing on layers and being editable in chunks from the get go. And even painting, again, I literally have been painting on tablets for 12 years and it all changed in one day, its just so much more direct and engaging to paint right on screen. I tried painting and drawing at home again the other night on my old little intuos 2 and it was just killing me, there is no going back! Now all I need is 2grand to buy the big one at home...

Ok enough slacking I promise to update my blog at least once a week. I promise!! I went to see Rambo tonight with my teammates, it was exactly what I expected. We left work early, had a few drinks, went to the bar, had a bunch more drinks, went to the theater, had MORE drinks (there is a bar in the theater, pretty sweet) and watched about one million Burmese people get killed. There was lots of screaming and cheering in the theater, I think everyone else was drunk too. The movie was short, mildly entertaining, and brutally violent.

Tomorrow Crazy Canadian Dave from sf is in town, we're going to a concept art workshop, then to a crazy bachelor party for another Canadian friend. Why are all my craziest friends Canadian? Is it something in the water?
