  • My Tentative Steps to Upgrade Wordpress
    on Oct 1, 2009
    I’ve been using Wordpress version 2.6.3 since I started this blog back in December of 2008, and I’m thinking it might be time for an upgrade, but I’m terrified that I’m going to end up destroying not only the site, but ruining...
  • LastFm Internet Radio & Mislabeled Music
    on Sep 29, 2009
    I get a kick out of Lastfm, and I’m blabbed on about it a lot here.  I can deal with their intro advertisements (for now) for hydrogenated breakfast pastries, because, to me, it remains one of the best, and fastest, online radio systems.  Hav...
  • December Sun #4 - Page 5
    on Sep 28, 2009
    Another week of thrilling restaurant dialog, with more artistic experimentation.  I won’t lie: looking at these panels, I’d probably redraw most of these had I the time.  But instead of reworking old pages, I just like to move on.  DS#...
  • Cox & Kings Catalog: I’m too poor to be on this catalog distribution
    on Sep 24, 2009
    I just received a Cox & Kings catalog in the mail, advertising “exquisite cultural and wildlife adventures”, but ideally, this should have included the caveat, “for rich people”.  While the catalog is nice and colorful an...
  • Prison Ministry Comic - Unused Artwork
    on Sep 23, 2009
    I was just going through some old artwork and found this, which was an unused panel from a Prison Ministry comic that I did with my friend Brian.  The link to the actual comic is here.  The art/writing in the book was done by two others, including...
  • My site SCRAMBLED by Google Chrome!
    on Sep 21, 2009
    Apparently if I open this site up in Chrome, the site is totally scrambled, including most of the sidebar links totally vanishing!  What’s the deal? So for those handful of folks who visit this site on a regular basis, use Firefox.  It’...
  • December Sun #4 - Page 4
    on Sep 21, 2009
    Exciting restaurant dialog!
  • Free comic books! (albeit, comic books about monetary policy, foreign exhcange, and the federal reserve system!)
    on Sep 18, 2009
    For anyone looking for some thrilling comic book reading about topics such as economics of scale, inflation, or foreign trade and exchange, if you visit the Federal Reserve System you can request some free comics to be sent to you (well, “free&...
  • WebSiteGrader and Technorati
    on Sep 18, 2009
    I just had this site “graded” over at WebSiteGrader, and it looks like dscomic isn’t doing too bad in terms of SEO and meta stuff. What I like about WebSiteGrader is that it gives you helpful tips and advice to improve your site in...
  • December Sun #4 - Page 3
    on Sep 14, 2009
    Third page of issue #4, and I did a lot of this page with quill and wax pencils.  I like the effect in the second panel, but it can be difficult to get the shadows right (and also hard to scan and get right with Photoshop).
  • 24 consecutive comic book pages in 24 hours?
    on Sep 11, 2009
    So I was reading about the “24 Hour Comic Day Challenge”, on Oct. 3, in which creators are challenged to create 24 consecutive pages of a comic book in the span of 24 hours. I look at something like this, and it just makes me sad, becaus...
  • RIP old Coby MP3 player…
    on Sep 10, 2009
    Alas, my old Coby MP-C440 mp3 player has finally bitten the dust.  Too many usages, too many ebooks, too many sermons and songs (plus the entirety of the Bible twice) was all that this mild mp3 player could take. Er, or the fact that I dropped in on...
  • December Sun #4 - Page 2
    on Sep 8, 2009
    You may notice some inconsistencies with the artwork (namely jumps from ink to charcoal to pen, etc).  The reason that I wanted to explore different media across this issue and, figuring that this isn’t Marvel or anything that I’m workin...
  • Very bad science
    on Sep 2, 2009
    I’ve just started a new page for a book that I’m working on now, tentatively called “Very Bad Science”. This is a novel that I’m writing that will take place withing December Sun continuity, and will fit in around issue...
  • December Sun #4 - Page 1
    on Sep 1, 2009
    This is the first page of issue #4.  One of the things a little different is that I did away with a splash opening page (although I will do this in issue #5) and I also did away with titling the issues.  I was thinking that giving each issues seems...
  • Makers Of Vaccination Refuse To Take H1N1
    on Sep 1, 2009
    I usually put my nutritional/pharmaceutical musings in my nutritional blog, but this one has me interested enough that I want to write about it here in my main site. Yeah, it has nothing to do with the webcomic, but it’s still a topic interest...
  • More hilarious problems with my Sony Vaio! (the dying Windows Explorer dillema)
    on Aug 25, 2009
    Well, the hilarity that is my Sony Vaio continues.  I finally got Adobe Flash reinstalled and working (so I can listen to LastFm again, the ad-free alternative to Pandora that I enjoy) but now the latest problem is: whenever I open Windows Explorer...
  • December Sun #4 - Cover
    on Aug 24, 2009
    I’m starting issue #4 today, and this week I’m going to be making some changes to the layout and format here (including a new image map, which as of this writing, I haven’t started working on yet…) Because work has kept me bus...
  • Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” 25th anniversary disk with not-so-thrilling extra tracks ruined by other artists
    on Aug 20, 2009
    I wanted to write about some of Michael Jackson’s music here, because I have enjoyed a lot of his music from the Jackson 5 days and earlier solo years (back before Jackson turned weirder.) I think the threshold for me was the “Thriller&#...
  • December Sun #3 - Back Cover
    on Aug 19, 2009
    This is the back cover of December Sun #3, and that’s everything. 20 pages, a handful of cut panels, and this back image. I’m going to let this sit for a couple days, and then on Monday of next week, I’m going to start ish#4. I&#...
