A'rright, my computer's
back! Thanks to everyone who sent e-mails. In case you
were wondering, the hard-drive WAS bad. My mom went and
spent some huge amount of money and got the repair guy to
do a file-recovery.
SOOOO what that means,
I got most of my files back! ^^ It also
means that there will be a comic update on
Anywho, the repair guy
gave me a bunch of random assorted MP3's... so I've been
listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for the
past hour and a half. It's been such a long time since
I've read that book. XD I'm in love with

some pictures that were drawn over the past week while I

Started reading the
Great Gatsby in english class. I adore the quote that
starts the book. Had to draw something
silly based on
it. And something with six legs.
...And after reading
the newest installment of Strings of Fate I HAD to draw
an oriental dragon. So I drew a random old
some people on durros. I honestly have no idea, but it
turned out really well.
Oh yeah, and since I
have my files back... I'm still planning on selling
prints at Otakon and such. So if you're going, please
plan on giving me money. *grinn* I'm hoping to get
together a Sango costume (Youkai exterminator from
Inuyasha) ... dono what I'll do about that gargantuan
boomerang, though... >_o
... maybe I'll just be

backing up ALL OF MY FILES.

I'm not entirely sure
if this will work or not.
Remember me mentioning
those strange sounds from the computer? That was the
sound of it dying. That's right... my computer killed
itself last night. All of my files from the past year and
a half were destroyed. The original files of the comic,
my school work, my portfolio, hundreds upon hundreds of
hours of work-- it's gone. I never had the wits about me
to make backups. I was hoping I'd be able to carry around
a little portfolio with printouts around to sell at
ShoujoCon and Otakon (both of which I should be going to
this summer) but mleh. I feel like an idiot.
So, what does this
mean? I'm not going to be around for a while. For a lack
of a computer as well as a short
"mourning/kick-myself-in-the-ass" period. This also means
no comic. I'm sorry. I just don't have the means or the
heart to do it at the moment. I don't know when I'll be

The story with Fallen.
The file for the image was corrupted. I'm sorry, Meg...
either Gabe doesn't like me or someone doesn't like Gabe.
Still, my mom waved a magic wand and the Norton fairy
went *poof* and the file said, "oh, okay!" and let me
open it. It's still gi-normous, as most corrupted files
are, and hard to open and save because of the waiting
period. I may or may not get it up by
O-kay, I saw Spiderman
twice over the weekend and I just wanted to put my little
commentary here. Despite the fact that everyone I knew
loved it, I was pretty disappointed. The CG was the least
impressive part, or at least to me. It was completely
unbelievable. (in the bad way.) Something in the physics
or lack of textures... it just wasn't believable. With
all the hype and improvements in computers and programs,
they should give us at least that. It brings into
question how well done the CG for the other upcoming
Marvel movies-- the Hulk and DareDevil-- will be. Also,
the script was mind-numbingly cliché. What's with
the "I'll get you-- if it's the last thing I do!"
and the "We'll meet again, Spiderman! <insert
evil cackle here>?"
I did, however, enjoy the subliminal messaging with the
Spiderman sponsors... well done with the Dr.Pepper, guys.
Another thing I found rather pleasing was the attack of
the B-actors. They had a slew of actors from the old Xena
series... Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless, and that guy who
played Joxer the Mighty who I don't remember the name of
but had a crush on when I was twelve.
M'yyeah. I still think
I'll stick to the cartoons they had on Fox in the early
90's. That voice actor had the per-fect Spiderman
voice... sweet and sarcastic.
surprisingly bitter tonight. Apologies.
... snausage is a funny
word. Snausage. Snaauussaaggeee.
(... that can't be a good sound.)
Okay, no new Fallen. I
tried... but two crashes later, I realized it wasn't
meant to be. I then tried to take a cropped shot of one
of the finished panels to post here and... well, the
computer started making really strange noises and I think
the file got damaged and I REALLY REALLY don't wanna redo
all that work. *cry*
... anywho, I'll try to
rebuild the desktop and kick the tower a few times and
see what happens. Me and my technical

A'rright! My computer
happily didn't blow up. As promised, there's some new
comic-y pages, colored with my super-deluxe-happy Wacom
tablet. There is a total of one word and one onomatopoeia
in the entire update. ^^
Also, as promised, I
have some tablet-y sketchies and stuff from I-Con. I'm
not actually supposed to out up the photo of me and Billy
Boyd (the guy who played Pippin in LoTR)... and since my
mom checks this site, I won't. :P

day) a guy named Spam handed me a fill-in-a-panel comic-y
thing and John looked over at what I was doing and said
"hey, that's really neat" and we started talking about
furry art and the like and it seems we know of a lot of
the same people. And I was happy. And I met two guys from

me a free poster which I left in Pete's car along with my

bought them some coke. I also met Efrain, who apparently
personally knows Neo Geen, who did a trade picture with
me a few years back. Wow, trippy stuff.

was mocking the hobbit-yness.

Be back Tuesday
Okay, it's official:
I'm going to I-Con
with the Sluggy
gang! My first convention! (Pete is one of the most
generous people I've ever met. ^^ ) Look! I'm mentioned
at Sluggy! :D
Sooooo if you want to meet me and you're around the Long
Island area, stop by the Sluggy table. I'm the really
short, skinny asian girl.

sorry. I'll do something next weekend, I
Also, don't hope to see
me around much this week... despite the fact that it IS
my spring break, I'm going to be out a lot looking at
colleges. I'm coming back from I-Con Sunday night,
leaving to check out colleges in northern New York on
Monday morning. (4:00 am to be precise.) Coming back
I'll post a blurb on
either Sunday or Tuesday or so.
(Oooh, lord of the rings...)
If I learned anything
today, it's that the the movie version of Lord of the
Rings far surpasses the cartoon version. Sure, the
animation's great, it was breakthrough for the time (the
early 80's or so...) -- they traced over live action
stills and the characters have great movement. The
problem is that most of the movie isn't
animated... it's live action that was put through a
filter to make it all monochromatic. The second half of
the movie is mostly live action. Eww.
... plus, most of the
major characters aren't wearing pants. (which earned it a
wonderful amount of MST'ing.) Aragorn, Boromir.. they
look like they're wearing miniskirts. And they shave
their legs. The orcs are wearing togas. Gimli looks
exactly like Boromir, except for their hats... Boromir is
wearing a viking hat and Gimli looks like he stole Link's
sock-cap. And the Balraug (did I spell that right?) is
Mothma. Gandalf's "death scene" is the funniest part of

wearing pants and is pretty. And I am
