I think it's totally fantastic that you're guiding the Universal Studios lot tours this summer, and I really hope that I get a chance to go see you do it. I entered that contest you had, where you make a video describing in what way you're the best Late Night with Jimmy Fallon fan, but I didn't win. Majour congratulations to Amanda who won. I really hope that someday I get the chance to meet you, because really, you are an amazing person and your show is absolutely wonderful.

look, it's Chelliott! i (somewhat) recently played through the first Portal (i have yet to play the second one. i might buy it for the PS3, but i'm not sure) and i enjoyed it greatly. when i beat it, i posted this pic on my tumblr:
also, about this new pen i'm using- in retrospect, i do like how it looks, but i'm not a fan of how it feels when i'm actually using it, so i'm not sure what i'm going to do. i'll use this one for a little while longer, see how i feel about it, and we'll see what happens.

another Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars comic. i've just about beaten the game now, i've just got to finish getting through the last dungeon and fight Smithy, but i don't want to yet because all my party members are level 29 so i may as well level them up, and i want to try and get all the hidden treasure chests i haven't found yet.
also, as you may have noticed, i used a different inking method for this one. i used my pitt B pen, and i'm not really a fan of how it worked out. i think that pen is for people who work larger than i do; it's hard to get the lines the way i want them since they're too small for the nib. i dunno. i'll have to figure something out.

unfortunately, i was leveling up my characters on Super Mario RPG and i kept on choosing Magic Power for Bowser (because i really like his mutli-target magic attacks) and eventually everyone else was doing more physical attack damage than him, and i was sad. but don't worry, i've got his physical attack up again, it's all good.

sorry for no update yesterday, Blogger was in read-only-mode all day. so, i've posted what would be yesterday's comic today, and i'll have another comic on monday.
i somewhat recently found a copy of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars for the SNES at a local used video game store, and i was way pumped. it's been one of my top most favourite video games for years, so i was very excited to play though it again. i'm way past Star Hill now. i've got six stars and i'm in Bowser's Keep now. it's pretty great. and seriously, when i got to Star Hill on this playthrough, it was so fantastic- all of the little stars you can look at to read people's wishes are so amazing, i love them all.
if you have a Super Nintendo (or a Wii, since they have it on the virtual console or whatever), i definitely recommend playing it if you can. it's soooooooo great.

majour thanks to Patrick Kennedy for giving me his old computer. it runs my old computer games FABULOUSLY. Myst 3 is beautiful, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is totally great. the stupid Venice level on Tomb Raider 2 is still stupid, though. there's way too many guys with guns on that level, it's way tough for me every time i try and play through it. also, those guys on that level with the baseball bats? WAY too tough. you have to shoot those guys like twenty times to kill them. insane.
also, my pen is running out of ink, so i've got to find something new to ink these comics with. i haven't really been the biggest fan of this pen, but it's got the job done, so i'm kind of glad and sad at the same time that i've got to find a new inking tool. i dunno. do you guys have any suggestions?

this is based on a true story. i'm pretty pumped. a guy stole one of the copies of my comic "half-size*" from Main Street Coffee (234 North Main Street in Pocatello, where, if you are interested, you can purchase my comic. i'm pretty sure they still have at least one copy. otherwise, you can just order them from my store). he liked the comic so much, that he subsequently purchased a copy from my store page! awesome! i won't give his name, but seriously, majour thanks! i really appreciate you buying my comics, and honestly, hearing that you stole a copy made me feel way cool!

this is a day late, but this is for Harley's birthday yesterday. he used to always put on theatrics like this when we'd have Burger King's delicious chicken sangwiches in the same room as him. he'd totally freak out unless we gave him some.
also, i really like how this comic turned out, because i feel like it's really animated and cartoony and Stealing Heart Bandit looks great doing those silly things.
