24 hours, 24 pages!

I'm seriously thinking of participating.

There's a store hosting this in Rancho Cucamonga, which is about 25 minutes drive from here, and another one in Manhattan Beach, which is about an hour away. The Rancho store looks like a more viable option, but the Manhattan Beach store looks a lot more fun and organized. Events like these look like they would be a fun social, as they are intended to be, but normally after much deliberation I always end up with a conclusion that I'm not very social after all and that it would probably be most comfortable for me to just participate from home.

It really is quite unfortunate that I don't know any comic artist around here with whom I can go to events such as this one. Most of my artist friends do illustrations, and my persistent efforts to drag them down into the world of sequential arts have had the success rate of a sickly goldfish trying to live inside a plastic igloo sitting in a hamster cage.

If you are also a comic artist and can't find a site that hosts this event nearby, I suggest you join me and participate from home. I will be online in my DeviantArt chat channel, #arke1ntoofle throughout this 24-hour period, during which I will try to finish 24 comic pages. Rough pages, of course, for it is not humanely possible for one person to finalize one comic page per hour, complete with toning and everything. Share your story ideas in the chatroom! Brainstorm with us if you haven't had any idea! I may not own a physical establishment to host an event like this one, but since everyone has internet these days, there is nothing wrong with hosting an event in a cyber establishment.

Start time: Saturday, October 3, 2009 - 1pm PST
End time: Sunday, October 4, 2009 - 1pm PST
Location: DA Chat Channel: #arke1ntoofle
Bring your own snack, food, and energy drinks, though. I can't supply you these things digitally.

Size Matters

It is human nature for one to always want a bigger slice of fish.

It is also human nature to act with incredulity and suspicion should that bigger slice of fish ever materialize, because if something is too good to be true, then most likely it is too good to be true.

Mango A-Go-Go

I am currently in possession of a robo dwarf hamster named Mango, who has the tendency to perform the most amazing backflip while running at high speed in his silent spinner wheel.

While Mango is no stranger to the concept of acceleration, it seemed like the idea of deceleration escaped him completely; the little guy would repeat this feat no matter how many times he flew, flipped, and fell with a loud thud on his bedding-covered cage floor. Persistency is indeed a virtue, but especially more so when it provides a lasting amusement to the outsider watching you make a complete fool of yourself.

Informed Indecision

Let's all face it: What would life be without free high-speed wireless internet?

For the record, I hate stereotypes, but I have to admit that stereotypes exist because at some point in time they were true, and maybe they still are. People aren't that amazing to make up their own false stereotype and popularize it.

Remember, folks! Don't be a stereotype!
