Fuck the sun.


Today I walked from Maynooth to the next town, Kilcock with two of my friends, Richy and Brian. We travelled along the canal. When we got to Kilcock, we stayed for a while in Brian's grandad's house. His grandad was an incredibly interesting guy and all round nice person. His house was just as interesting as well! It was lined with old decorations, clocks, porcelain figurines, newspapers, small art prints etc. that kind of thing.
We ran a quarter of the way back, since we were getting tired. Doing soonly proved how unfit I truly am, hahah. I think in total we walked around 8 miles. I'm pretty happy with that.

Man, this fucking heat is killing me. I can't stand days like this, where the flies are everywhere, your trousers stick to ya, the computer overheats, and you just don't feel like doing jack shit.
All I ask for is a petty breeze! Christ...

The drawing above is something I did yesterday. Its Dream from the Sandman comics having tea with Paprika from the anime feature Paprika.
Man I'm getting great use out of that black Letraset marker...

FREEEEDOM!!

Aah, my Leaving Cert is finally over! And thus, my life begins anew. The fact I'm finished school forever still has yet to hit me though. I still feel as if there are some upcoming exams to finish, or essays to hand in. Weird. Hope I'll shake it off soon, or I ain't gonna get a thing done all Summer.
And speaking of, I do hope to get a lot of things done, including;

- Watching tons of films, be it from my own DVD collection, on Film4, or at the cinema. I'd like to maybe watch over fifty films over the Summer...
- Do a lot of life drawing. And improve anatomy skills in general.
- Start work on a comic and hopefully find some way of publishing it. No real ideas yet though.
- Start walking at least once every night. I'm not overweight, but I'm not terribly fit either.
- Get a job. If that's at all attainable, in this current economic climate. But really, I seriously need some fucking money.
- Read a lot of comics, and subsequently more novels as well (to the library I go!)
- Take up guitar.

Well that's my aims so far. Are they realistic? I dunno, but I'm gonna give them a crack anyway. I don't want to be stuck in my house everyday playing the PS3 for hours upon hours. I'd rather be stuck in the house drawing for hours and hours! :P
And now for some art. Below is a request for a fellow on a certain comics board; The Gentleman Ghost, a villain from some Batman comic. I haven't heard of him before, but fuck he is cool.
