I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

Good GOD… need coffee

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

Pickman's Model

This week we spotlight Kim Holm’s incredible adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s short story Pickman’s Model. Being big Lovecraft fans around here we jumped at the opportunity to cover Kim’s work. This graphic novel adaptation of one of Lovecraft’s best is totally excellent. Kim’s vision of Pickman’s world is truly something to behold. The thick inky blackness, frayed lines and fevered pitch of his work is an experience you wont want to miss. You can purchase yourself a copy of  Pickman’s Model on IndiePlanet and read it for free on FreeComics.no. Be sure to like Kim’s facebook page facebook.com/DUHHfans.

As surely as biscuits go with sausage gravy, so too does discouragement come with creativity.

I’ve actually found that the amount of discouragement an artist feels is directly proportional to his/her ability. The more discouragement he/she feels, the higher the ability. The less…

Excellent advice
