Choices Choices

My Uncle John is blind and for the most part, we do things that we can all enjoy.  Unfortunately, there are those occasions where you can’t please everyone and Uncle John is given the choice between two things that are not all that fun when you can’t see. He laughed about it when I realized his choices were not the best and suggested I make a comic about it.  I am really glad Uncle John is in my life.  He reminded me that sometimes you can’t get upset and you just have to make the best of it.

We went up to a place about an hour outside of Bend, OR that has the biggest thunder eggs we have ever seen.  Because this rock bed is newly discovered we were some of the first people to dig there.  I will post pictures when we get these rocks cut open to see what is inside of them.

And no worries, Uncle John got to do plenty of things he enjoys 🙂

Sorry for not shading this comic, I’ve gotten sick and we had a minimal amount of time to complete this.

Poke’mon on the Brain

This is a real thing that happened.  Because I had a stroke and I had been previously diagnosed ADHD and Learning Disabilities, I’m having to be re tested.  During the test, I was asked to define evolution and while I KNOW the definition of evolution and I know what evolution is, I could not stop thinking about Poke’mon.

Just my luck they used the word ‘evolution.’  Just my luck…

Big Cats are not pets

Gimli is what you call an expert level cat.  He loves you, but only if you are very very respectful, and even then, he’s so big (20lbs, not overweight) that he causes accidental damage.

I have been watching Big Cat Derek and Big Cat Rescue a lot recently.  People who rescue big cats are amazing.  There are so many big cats out there in need because stupid idiots don’t realize what or who tigers, lions, mountain lions, etc.. really are.  All you have to do is imagine your house meow, and then picture them playing with you or a toy but they are 500 pounds larger and their teeth could puncture your skull.

Not even thinking of the danger… cooping up a 500 pound cat in a home is overtly cruel.

So I wrote this comic to try and bring a little light on an issue I am passionate about.  Who knows, we might write more 🙂

EDIT: Sorry for the late post.. I thought I set this to post at midnight, but in reality it was set to post at noon.  WHOOPS!

Miss Hokusai left us with varied impressions

Miss Hokusai the animated movie is a very good movie.  However we have discovered its not a movie that speaks to everyone.  Bear is not a very visual person and he does not have an understanding of Japanese art.  He was left asking ‘what was with this movie!?’  whereas it really spoke to Yuji and I.

Watching a movie like Miss Hokusai isn’t going to be appealing to all viewers. It’s already a movie about artists and that by itself can be alienating for people who aren’t invested in the lives and values of artists.

Now it’s no surprise that I found the movie interesting, being a guy who likes to draw things. But what I found refreshing in film was the lack projected self importance that is often present in art films. The value and importance of art to the world message so to speak. Rather the movie simply showed the viewer what Hokusai and his daughter found interesting and no attempt was made by the film or its characters to preach the virtue of art.

It was a movie about people who like to do art because they like it. And I can respect that kind of honest sincerity in an art film.

Cole and Marmalade Fan!

Hermione is a HHHUUUUGE Cole and Marmalade fan!  I think its because she was feral, she’s young and she lives with 3 elderly cats… that being said, I also think she has a crush on Marmalade.

SEE COLE AND MARMALADE HERE!

Here is a pic of one of my feline overlords, Hermione!
