Ceci n'est pas une personne.

This is a Beatles Yellow Submarine flier. It's the first draft, and I think it's obvious that I've never taken a drawing class, but other than the letters, it's all free hand. The pattern in the sky will hopefully become a background like they used in Yellow Submarine, but that will take quite a bit of work.



I wish I still had the movie to look at while I did this, but alas it was one of the DVDs stolen a while back.

The on call pager can really bite some times.

I got up at 8 and after getting some info from seattle on what hiking areas I can bus to, I headed on out and got 15 minutes down the trail and pager goes off. I head back, spend the day at work trying to get ahold of the correct engineers for fixing the problem (while I was going the flier), and finally got home about 15-20 minutes go.

Our first sunny weekend day in months, and I had to spend it in the office. It's like that movie they would show us at school about the kids on another planet that only gets a clearing in the weather oncea year, and on the day they are to go out some kids lock one of the kids in the closet. Perhaps a little melodramatic, but the same feeling.

I don't want to sound like a pyro, but there is something very comforting about having a real wood fire going in the fireplace. The snaps, pops, and smells remind me of the fire place we used to have as a kid.
