It's nearly Christmas, lots of work needs to be done and yet it is not being done. My last journal started curiously similarly 10 months ago, which I guess round about sums up the progress of my thesis. I have however become Khagan of Tartaria on CK2 and written three more chapters of my novel in the last month or two. I've also started teaching ethics classes and will have even more to do next term, so should probably use time now more wisely... oh well.
I also notice that in my last journal that I predicted an influx of pictures of Nico and Reimar's backstory. What has actually happened since then is that my sketchbooks flooded with pictures that never made it to final presentable quality. I did bring them with me though so perhaps I will finish them this Christmas!
Last time I featured some webcomics I was enjoying. Very excitingly, the fantastic apocalyptic noir comic Two Rooks is updating again:
demonallie's Two Rooks is crime noir set in a dystopian future. The artwork is unforgettable block black and white with the occasional splash of colour that beautifully conveys the bleak atmosphere of the setting. Well worth a read and recently updating again, keep reading for its exciting finale.
If you were an old reader of Pandect, you might like the new version Dina is making right now. morbidprince's Pandect is a one-of-a-kind high school drama in which the high school serves as a facade for the 'princes' of the animal kingdom (humans in animal form) to learn how to fit in with human society.
Almost every picture I've actually got around to finishing in the last couple of months has been done under pressure (commissions/birthday gifts etc.) so perhaps I will finally get a chance to complete some stuff I have lying around.
It's pretty wet, windy and miserable where I am right now. Yesterday Ragatuve
and I went out and got lost driving in the pitch black and rain
Luckily we had something to cheer us up:
One can not take life too seriously with this sountrack on.
More importantly lets get to the fun things I originally wanted to write the journal for - features! I've been on the look out for awesome pictures, and here are a few I've come across. These are probably my favourite new finds of the whole year
All the best for the new year ,
