Riders In The Sky Kickstarter

Hey folks! I wanted to share that I am part of a Kickstarter campaign for an "edutainment" film featuring The Riders In the Sky about the Alamo. I am helping with animating the film. You can see a little clip of what I've done thus far in the campaign video. It's just a quick rough animation clip but I will be sure to polish it up and make the rest of the film shine if we can meet our goal. 

So pledge a dollar or two. If you can't afford to pledge we would love it if you just pass the news along! Thank you :)

Wedding Garden

I ordered some wildflower seeds and dahlia tubers this weekend to grow for my wedding bouquet. Let's see if they will produce anything fruitful!

Here are the wildflowers
 

Arizona Sun Gaillardia
Indian Blanket Flower/Firewheel (Gaillardia Pulchella)

Mutated variety of Gaillardia Pulchella 

Cherokee Sunset Rudbeckia/Black-eyed Susans


And now for the dahlias

Sheer Heaven

Sunkissed

Tiny Treasure, a small pompon variety of dahlia

I plan to use one large dahlia and a couple of the little pompons and fill in with the wildflowers. I may switch from the use of dahlias to some homecoming chrysanthemums (which I honestly would prefer due to the more muted color range) but that is all dependent upon Georgia weather. In recent years summer has lasted a long time and it may not give the chrysanthemums a chance to bloom in full. We'll see!

Fluttershy

I had a little time yesterday and was doodling in Flash. I meant to post it on here first but that didn't happen. I guess I got distracted.

First a finished prize pony for Voodoo-Tiki on deviantArt! Go check out his stuff. It's pretty awesome.













Second... OMG THANK YOU DARKHORSE! I have been waiting and waiting for news about Eden's next volume. It's been a long time coming and I know I will be waiting longer still. But that is fine. I will wait 15 years if it means I can own all of Eden in English.

Seriously folks, this is the best cyberpunk manga I have ever read. And I love Battle Angel, Akira and Ghost In the Shell... but Hiroki Endo's Eden is just a cut above everything. Three of these titles are in my top 5 of all time (Akira, Battle Angel Alita, Eden: It's an Endless World, Maison Ikkoku, Please Save My Earth).


Honestly this manga could be made into an HBO series with how fantastic the writing is. And Americans would just eat it up. So I don't understand why people still don't really know about the series. It's smart, full of action and drama, and says a lot about the human condition on a general and personal scale. So come on guys! Go support this one!

This is my new favorite room. It will be that green color eventually.


House Before Pictures

Sorry it has taken so long to share the images of our home. These are just the before pictures. I'd rather wait until all of our odds and ends have found places to call home in our house before taking the after pictures. These were taken before we had done any cleaning or moving. So what you see in these pictures is how the previous owners left the house.

Obviously click through the images for better viewing.
