cool new moleskine, even cooler new gameboy

Not sure why it took me so long to try a Moleskine Watercolor Book, but its great so far!
The paper has a good feel, the mechanical pencil is not going into the paper (like it does on some other papers with tooth) and it takes a good amount of water without getting wrinkled and ugly.

Sitting in a cafe shop with a waterbrush, a small watercolor box and the new book is a good spend sunday afternoon.

- enjoying HARD BOILED WONDERLAND by Murakami and HOMICIDE by Simon

- Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia is the funniest TV Series at the moment

- Webcomics Weekly is good to listen too while drawing. The guys are funny and there is allot of good stuff to learn from them (especially when you´re a cartoonist)

- Some cool AND sexy people gave me a GAMEBOY MICRO yesterday, i cant wait to start playing some ports of SNES Games i never finished as a kid (i spent HOURS today searching for GBA games, they really got rare).

still sweaty

The cold still has me in its tight grip and i´m sweating in my bed while staring at the ceiling.
To not die of boredom, i sketch monsters (the hats and beverage theme has a new showing),
watch old UFC Fights or play BULLY.

I´m also thankful for Shawn Elliotts TWITTER FEED for posting something like this (a video that contains a cat AND a frog that is able to "scream").

For the last days of summer

The last days of this years summer are in,

Collected and posted by kozy, download it here!

Or if you want to stream it, go here!

(my Japanese has gotten bad, i kinda feel most of the lyrics are about fish)

sketchbook scraps and a cold

I spent the last days writing papers for university and getting a cold, not much fun at all!
Thats why there are no new drawings, just some scraps from the sketchbook.

I also saw EVERY Cutscene from THE FORCE UNLEASHED and its incredible how often the lightsaber-pop-out-sound is heard. Must be unbelievably fun to hit the switch.
Lightsaber out, lightsaber in, lightsaber out, lightsaber in.
God, i wish i had one :(

even mickey has one

sketchbook page and something REALLY personal

random sketches
At the beginning of the year, i wrote in this blog that this year is going to be awesome and "special".
So far, it is.
Nothing major happened, i did not win the lottery and i´m still not able to ink for shit but.. i don't know.. i´m strangely alright with my life.

This really is the first time span since 2000 or so that i´m not constantly under heavy mood swings. Its the first time i really WANT to make comics. The first time i´m able to see myself doing my own comics. The first time that "what should i draw?" is not an issue.
I like working out, eating healthy and i´m often times asleep while the clock hits the 1am mark.

This might be due to my brain getting older and i´m constantly becoming more boring.
Might be because i´m rarely drinking anymore.
Or because the big 3 and his buddy 0 is slowly getting in sight.

But it feels good, something heavy that was laying on my head fell off and most of the "emo" thoughts are gone or at least are lot quieter.

So, i´m still in love with 2008!

Not only a good Martial Arts movie but a great movie in general.
It takes its time, it displays a great care for the subject and it has a very likeable main character.
Highly recommended.


- N+, a pure plattformer, nothing but jumping and getting killed. Very short and fulfilling levels. Perfect for the DS.
To get an idea, here is the flash version!

SPIDERMAN 2, good mechanics, good use of the "GTA" open world style, had fun just swinging through New York. Did not finish the end fight though BECAUSE IT SUCKED!

- PSYCHONAUTS, good voice acting, has a nice weirdness and fun level design.
Stoped playing during a boss fight because of pretty much the same reasons as with Spiderman 2. -> dieing because of bad camera, no fun
