One Last April Post

I'm entering the home stretch. The semester will be over soon, and I will be one year closer to finishing my MDiv. Then comes the summer, in which I will apply to MFA programs and play the most painful waiting game I've ever played . . . g'night.

Bonus Post!!!

Just to let you know, according to google my blog contains the only reference to 'airbrushed catkin' on the internet.

Something That Could Probably Stop Now

Any story, strip, article that begins 'In which . . .,' as in 'In which Waldo receives an airbrushed catkin.' It's usually done in sort of a playful, ironic, pseudo-Victorian way, but it's over. It needs to stop. I enjoyed it at first, but it's become a substitute for an actual clever title (as my 'airbrushed catkin' line demonstrates).

Of course, Wondermark is exempted from the 'in which' ban because the cleverness of the strip, but also because the 'in which' bits are not featured prominently.

In the Cool of the Morning

Today we rejoice in the most explosive, unlooked for, eucatostrophic event the universe could have ever longed for.

The stiff-knuckled hand of Death had its bony fingers peeled back; his power melted away while his brother Sin was made bankrupt.

The world was shattered, but the centerpiece of history came into place two thousand years ago--

--when Christ walked the garden in the cool of the morning.

A Day of Note

I'm trying to improve my art for my Children's Lit project. This cartoon is not related to the project, but I got the idea this morning so I drew it up. Click the pic for the details.

It's not that great, and the gag has been done, but I enjoyed doing it. I was thinking about taking the colored pencils to it, but I'm not sure if I will. It would help contrast the mountains in the background with the cliff in the foreground, but I'm not sure if I want to take the time. What do you think?
