Binge-Listening and Binge-Reading

Yo-ho, folks.  Another weekend is coming to an end.  I finally found out how to turn the heat down in my motel room.  Now, it no longer feels like a sweat box.  Besides that, I spent the weekend doing some music binge-listening and webcomic binge-reading.

Spent all of Friday listening to Dr. Death and Mr. Vile.  This duo hails from Denver, Colorado.  Their music is an awesome mix of dark synth pop with a bit of an 80's overtone.  These guys are definitely worth a listen.  You can download their music for free on their bandcamp site.

I followed up my binge-listening with some binge-reading of the webcomic Mary Death.  It's about a girl named Mary who happens to be best friends with Death.  I spent  all of Saturday night reading through the entire archive.  Some strips will make you laugh.  Some will make you cry.  Others will leave you scratching your head.

That's all I have to share with you for now.  Toodles.

In Training

Over the weekend, a member of one of the facebook groups that I'm in decided that he was going to teach me how to make webcomics.  Considering that my artistic talents aren't that great, this should be an interesting challenge.  After receiving a few lessons on making memorable characters and creating dialogue for a panel, I opened up an image of one of my avatars on ms paint and tried my hand at making a comic short.


What I lack in drawing skills, I make up for using avatar generators.  I'm slowly making my way into the creative side of the webcomic world.  Wish me luck!
