≤Relevant: Epic Bulbasaur

Oi! I've been quiet for too long.
Sorry for that.

As anyone who has an internet audience will eventually say, "I've been sick." I didn't think that my illness would affect this website. Unlike YouTubers (who are notorious for having long silences during illness) my content doesn't require a good voice, neat appearance, or clean house. I figured I could draw comics, even while sprawled on a couch in my pajamas, fur matted with vapor rub, a tissue plugged up each nostril, and Magic School Bus (I love that show) playing in the background. After all, it's not hard to draw.
Unfortunately, I was mistaken. My favorite activity while sick was sleeping, or aimlessly posting on Facebook, and I think I set a personal record for both.

One productive thing did come of my illness, however. I've discovered (or rather, fallen in love with) Pokémemes. I've had a vague awareness of the website for some time, but never bothered to look it up, until I saw a pokémeme during one of my meanders through Facebook. I realized that some of what I've drawn would be great pokémemes, so I submitted some of my stuff, hoping to be able to draw people back here.
Two items were accepted: Gary holding the Chrome logo like a Pokeball, and Poptart Eevee. Poptart Eevee subsequently has gotten 1,000 views, and I have accelerated my plans to make a Poptart Pikachu. This has given me great satisfaction, and even drawn people to our Facebook page.

Anyway, I labeled this as being a ≤Relevant, with some kind of Epic Bulbasaur. I drew this before I got sick, during Calculus class. Basically, the idea was to take Pokémon, and draw them in more realistic proportions. Squirtle didn't turn out nearly as well, and I've had enough on my plate as it is, so whatever sort of "project" this might have turned into is probably never going to happen. :3 As if you wanted any more projects from me.

Here's an idea: I'll draw a strip tomorrow and post it on Monday. on Monday and post it on Tuesday Eventually.

Hypnosis

Some of you have seen this animated GIF I've put together.
Some of you may have been drawn in by it, because I put it on my NaNoWriMo forum signature.
...and on Pokémemes.
Some of you are amused by it.
Some of you are annoyed by it.
...
...

but none of you can look away.

Art Envy

I had a chat with a friend of mine, yesterday. He told me the url of his DA page and I told him about this website.

Today, I actually looked up his DA page, and am now experiencing art envy. His style is much more heavily-influenced by American comic books than mine (I don't know all of what my mutt of a style is.) Anyway, if I post a few ≤Relevants of Pokémon battles and trainers, or of Batman, it's my futile attempt to compete.

BTW, while on DA, I noticed something that seemed funny to me.

I don't know about you, but I'm noticing a trend here.

She's just so cute!

What a day...
What a day indeed. You want to know what I've been up to this fine day? I'll tell you.

I went on a date.

I met this girl named Eve-Evee...and she was just so cute! What could I do?
I was actually pretty pathetic. Sorta stammering...I asked her if she liked ice cream, for crying out loud! Is there anyone who doesn't like ice cream?

See for yourself. It's laughable.

Nevertheless, she seemed thrilled about it. We went to that restaurant in Celadon. (You know, next to the Game Corner.) It was just a load of fun...


I just dropped her off at her home. Hope she had as good a time.

One year ago, today

I was on Facebook today, as is typical of me, when I happened to notice something both hilarious and unnerving.
This was my status, one year ago today:

I'd say "Oh how far the mighty have fallen," but that would require me being mighty.
