+Christopher Kimson, you can make photocopies of your good drawings and also just do really rough sketches to practice your coloring with. Also, just practice using colors on blank paper (no drawings) so you get a feel for how they look when different colors are mixed together.

Happy Earth Day!

This Earth Day, NASA is asking us to celebrate our home planet by sharing pictures and video of our favorite places on Earth with the hashtag #NoPlaceLikeHome.

I send my Earth Day salutations with this pic of San Francisco, one of my favorite places on this planet and the city I call home!

Regarding Earth Day, NASA says: "At NASA, we explore lots of planets and there's a lot to love: the mountains on Mars, the rings of Saturn, the 99.77-degree axial tilt of Uranus. But how about a little something for the home team? It's Earth Day. Let's explore our home planet, too.

Scientists from NASA and around the world have now discovered more than 1,800 planets beyond our solar system. But so far, we haven't found any that match the complexity of Earth. And it is this complexity that challenges Earth scientists as they seek to figure out how the whole planet works as a system.

Earth has oceans, forests, deserts, ice sheets, rain, snow, an atmosphere. And we have life. These are some of the things that NASA's 20 Earth-orbiting missions observe and measure in our quest to build the most complete understanding possible of our dynamic planet.

And while the view from space can be awe-inspiring, our satellites do not see the world the way you do, what makes your corner of Earth special - what makes it home.

We want you to share with NASA and the world views of your corner of Earth - your favorite place, whether it’s a local park, your vacation spot or Mt. Everest. Our question to you is a simple one: What is your favorite place on Earth?"

"Do. Or do not. There is no try." ~Yoda

Here's one of Union Square's four painted heart sculptures. This one's painted by Lawrence Noble who also sculpted the legendary Yoda statue seen in the Yoda Fountain in front of Lucasfilm headquarters.

Since 2009, painted heart sculptures from the Hearts in San Francisco public art installation have been installed in Union Square's four corners. The sculptures are auctioned off each year to benefit the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. New sculptures painted by various artists take their place.

Steve Wozniak + Stan Lee = Silicon Valley Comic Con!

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is teaming up with legendary creator Stan Lee to launch a Silicon Valley-based comic book convention that'll "celebrates the Age of the Geek by bringing together America's two greatest superheroes: pop culture and technology."

Regarding this event, the Woz says:

"Today we're lucky to have so many kinds of entertainment, from movies, TV shows, web series, music, video games, social media and more, and the lines between entertainment and the technology we love so much in Silicon Valley are getting blurrier every day. We're going to create a place where all these different kinds of interests can come together, and we can come together too.

There are lots of fans like me in San Francisco and the Valley, and I'm excited that now we'll have a Comic Con with our very own flavor... I'm going to be working with lots of great people to make this happen."

SVCC is March 19-20, 2016 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA. More info:

+Jesse Cohen, excellent, I hope you get to attend! And sadly, WonderCon left SF a few years ago for SoCal and hasn't returned. There are no big comic cons in SF anymore. The closest are Big Wow Comicfest and this event (both in San Jose).

New Official Jurassic World Trailer!

More dino-action in this second official trailer! Based on novels by Michael Crichton this sequel is the fourth film installment in the Jurassic Park franchise [].

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly.

In theaters June 12, 2015. Directed by Colin Trevorrow. Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan and B. D. Wong.
