So yeah I made this last night, that's one of the fonts I've been working on, I call it Space Jugend and it's like a display font with a few alternatives and it's just really not very good but I just wanted to do something disgustingly IN, shut up I do as I please. It's a gif, click it, I know you want to!

I put ironic shit on your ironic shit.

I don't dream much when I sleep, but last night I had a very, well, confusing dream after making this giff. In my dream I went shopping with my mother, trying to find a nice set of champagne glasses and ended up going to Tiimari, a cheap store that sells a bit of everything from pencils to garden gnomes. There we met Matt Smith, who was working there because I don't know, he wasn't running around playing The Doctor anymore or something, and he tried to tell us that the coolest champagne glasses in the world were the ones that had hipster nebula images all over them, and even I was like, "hell yeah nebula pictures why not, that's better than motherfucking colourful marble patterns, let's take these", but my mother didn't agree and we left the store and I was all "MOOOOM, I bet you don't even know you just told The Doctor we're not getting the glasses he called 'the sweetest hipster candy on earth', you're so not internets-cool".

I don't know. I just really don't know. I think I just saw too many hipster nebulas during one day and my brain broke. I think I'm suffering hipster overload or something. WHAT'S THIS?

I never really got Narcissus, but I think Zeus and I would make the best of bros.

Yes, this is not going to turn into a comics-about-me-and-my-life-bohoo-listen-to-me-whine-and-give-me-symapthy-blog any more than it is already, but a friend told me about this challenge at Tumblr and I though I'd give it a shot.

So the first week wthe challenge was to "summarize yourself in 4 panels". We were not allowed to use dialogue or narration. The deadline was already gone a few days before I heard of this but I wanted to draw it, so I'm posting it here now.

So in case you don't get it... That's me, in the last panel, thinking how cool it'd be to do the stuff in the first three panels. And realising that none of that is realistic, but hey, a girl can dream.
It's sort of sad that even my imaginary life is borrowed from books and movies, isn't it? Well, still a better story than Twilight...

And then this week's comic. "Your first original character."

I must have been the most boring kid I know. I'm not sure if Explosive Eric even exploded in any of the few comics I drew. But that's probably because he couldn't walk away from the explosions not bothering to look back over his shoulder because he was just that cool if it was his body that was exploding. Or his head.

Hey, hey, maybe I should rename him Explosive Eric the Epic?

Here and back again.


Yeah, I'll just leave you with this.

Not even half as cool as the stuff this guy makes, but hey at least I tried. And it's a fish - everybody knows surrealism is like 80% about unexplained fish. And glowy eyes.

Yeah, nothing else to see here. Zoom camera under this arch... Party in the limo.

(Does anyone know where "party in the limo" is from? I'm pretty sure it's from Straight To Hell, or maybe some other Alex Cox movie, but I can't find it. Or maybe I'm just getting things mixed up in my head and it's from some movie I've seen and really disliked, like, I don't know, Wolverine or something. Now that was a bad movie, I want those two hours of my life back. Probably Shrek, I quote Shrek all the time and don't even notice. Like that onion thing. Maybe that's why people don't take me seriously. Hmmm. Have to think about this. Or I could just watch Straight To Hell again, it's a great movie and I haven't watched it for years. Yeah, I'm gonna do that. And then get my hands on Repo Chick. Alex Cox movies are essential in August. Remember the time they spent most of the budget on glow-in-the-dark paint? And had to go cheap on things like, for example, Agent Rogersz' cybernetic, metallic arm... that sort of ended up looking like a tin foil glove. Yeah, great movies. Like, seriously, just take a look at what IMDB says about STH:
And it has a great soundtrack. Well, not as good as Repo Man, but, hell, it's still good. Not to mention the cast. It has Jim Jarmusch AND Joe Strummer. Okay this is getting out of hand. I'm sure you already got the picture - I like these movies, so should you, though you probably won't, since they are rather bad and more like inside jokes between Alex Cox and... well, no one else, really. But now that we got this far, I'd like to point out that Sid & Nancy has it's moments too, and you probably should watch that, too. Although it is depressing as hell, in a way. But hey, Gary Oldman is great in it. WHICH REMINDS ME OF--

Nah. Just go to IMDB, I don't have to tell you all this. Why are you even reading this, you can't possibly get anything out of this rambling?)
