I've been kind of hit or miss on here for a month or so, mostly due to crazy changes in my life. Now, after 7 months of being in Africa (8 weeks on, 2 off), i get to go back to the States permanently...only to head back out again in a week in a half. But this time I'm moving to another office in Oak Ridge, TN. The family will follow me shortly, and I'll have some time to find a new abode for us while I'm working. Regardless of the short time with them yet again, this should be a pretty stable situation once they move up north. I get to be with my family again, and an added bonus is I'll be 3 hours away from my mom.

Life has been all kinds of crazy lately, and it's going to get even crazier in the short term, but honestly I feel like we've really been blessed right now considering the job market. I have work, and I won't have to leave my family again to live on a separate continent. That's aces in my book.

Yeahhhh, I feel you there. I've flown overseas a few times myself and I pretty much have to knock myself out for most of the flight to make it enjoyable.

I was never a reader of Doom Patrol, but I like the concepts for most of the series DC will be introducing with the Young Animal line. I might actually have to get back into comics. :)
Superhero publisher DC is aiming for a more mature audience with its new line of adult-oriented comics, curated by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way

My spawn became the first victims models for my new camera as I start learning how to take photos for reference sketching. And maybe just for pleasure...

Thank you, +calvin coleman! Though my wife added half the ingredients and did all the baking. ;)

It's artists like this that remind me why it's so important to do what you love, everyday, even if only for a few minutes. Sadly, I haven't been following my own advice. :/

I know, right? Something is better than nothing though. I challenge you  to make some 2 second sketch doodles and post them! (Heheh!)

The radio ads were usually the highlights of my work day on my drive in and back home.
Over nine years of being interesting, the man boosted beer sales.

They tapped a writer who's working on...Transformers 5. As it has not come out, I withhold judgement. Barely.

I just finished watching the anime series Erased (Boku Dake ga Inai Machi) and I have to say it is fantastic! Excellent voice acting (I watched it subtitled), a fantastic intro both animation-wise and theme song, and the story is very adult and moving. 

The basic premise is a struggling manga artist has an ability he calls Revival which allows him to go back in time a few minutes. It always happens when something dangerous is about to happen to someone around him. Within the first episode something devastating happens, and instead of minutes he gets sent back 18 years.

The story touches on a few sensitive topics, particularly child abuse, but I felt the creators handle it poignantly. What really struck me was how deeply the importance of relationships with others is emphasized through out all twelve episodes. 

I definitely plan on buying the manga when it's available in the States, and will get the anime as well. There are quite a few sites currently streaming it, including Crunchyroll. The anime is also complete (it finished airing in March). Seriously, go check it out!

Hello! This is just a little tribute to Spring I whipped up. Haven't posted much here lately, perhaps I'm finally breaking out of my winter depression! Thanks for looking, hoping you enjoy!

"Banana Mecha" by ExclusivelyPlastic | Pimped from Flickr
"Build a banana mecha!" -Devid VII I've had this thing sitting around without finished legs or weapons for a while now, so I decided instead of wasting time spinning gears over building it, I decided I just had to throw together the rest of it or waste time building something I wasn't having fun with. So sorry for the sloppy feet and weapons. Hope you understand. The banana part was fun to build though. I'm putting the last two 500 followers bu...

Random Selfie

The wife has been asking me to grow my hair out. 38 and I'm already rocking lots of gray/silver. Also decided to follow suit with the rest of the dudes out here on site and stop shaving. Think its been a week or two? Time flows differently here. Oddly enough it doesn't itch nearly as bad as it does back home.

Home...two weeks! After damn near three months...feels like forever. Can't wait.

Introduction
I want to be happy when I grow up. That means:

- I've achieved self-satisfying success as a creator
- I've placed a smile on someone's face at least once a day

Circles to put me in:

Bragging rights
My spirit animal is probably Disney's Goofy or Animal from The Muppets (I would've preferred a fox)

This store is one of my family's favorite places to visit in Houston! The staff are always friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The store, while allowing children to play in certain sections with piles of bricks, is never messy. There was one instance where I had purchased a discounted Ninjago set but when we got home found there were pieces missing. I explained the issue with the store manager, Merlin, and he not only apologized for the issue but he straight up replaced the set no problem. While you may be able to find sets cheaper due to clearance or discounts in other stores like Target or Walmart (not Toys R Us as they tend to charge $5-20 more and then offer "discounts"), the experience of checking out the store and finding cool and interesting sets, or even filling a bucket full of different bricks via their Wall of Bricks is well worth the visit if you're in the Houston area. They also do monthly events like free mini builds, Club Member meetings based on themes for children to build to and discuss in front of their peers, and other random little events. If you're in the Galleria, especially with children who hate shopping, promise them a visit to the store after you get your errands done. They'll love it, and you might even find something that your own inner kid is just begging to have. :)
