Comic: Back of the Envelope – #12 – Mario’s Inferno

November 29, 2010

Dante was Italian. Mario is Italian. Princess Toadstool is obviously Beatrice. It all makes sense now!

And it doesn’t even matter where I am bored, I will doodle!

Comic: Hollow Oak University – #13 – In Which Our Hero Slays The Damsel

November 19, 2010

Holy Hannah, a new Hollow Oak University! I do not believe my eyes. In case you forgot, here is where we last left Chester, Berkeley, Bryn, and ED17. A rampaging robot, a damsel distress, a hero and his sidekick (I’ll let you decide who is the hero and the sidekick), how else could this adventure end? I think this may be the most ambitious storyline HOU will see for a while, which explains why it took so long. Hopefully things will pick up a little after next week’s strip and we’ll bring the funny more often.

Lots of stuff going on right now. Both Sean and I are working on our respective dissertations. Their kinda important, hence why this blog has slowed down recently. For some reason, coming home after writing ten pages of technical jargon doesn’t inspire me to write. I am still hoping to keep the general schedule of Back of the Envelope on Mondays, photography on Wednesdays, and HOU on Fridays. Sometimes a 52 Card Write-Up on a Tuesday/Thursday as I get more participants. By the way, I am looking for more participants.

For now, enjoy this comic. Thanks for sticking with it as Sean and I fight our way through our disserations.


Art Project: 52 Card Write-Up – Ace of Spades

November 18, 2010

You all were waiting for this one, weren’t you? A reference to Motorhead (though that video is mislabeled as “Ace of Spaces,” which sounds like a realty show on TLC). Well, I am not one to disappoint. And by me, I mean the friend who wrote this card. Also referenced is the other saying with “Ace” in it, the one about being great at what you do. But we cares about that, right Lemy? Thumbs up, devil horns flashing, this is one rockin’ card.

My best guess is "Get Him to the Greek" would be confusing in the continent where there are actual Greek people

Art Project: 52 Card Write-Up – Three of Clubs

November 16, 2010

Do you like basketball? I am a frontrunner Heat fan. But I am a frontrunner Heat fan since 2006, when they won the championship. Well, that’s not entirely true, I did like the Heat when they were battling the Knicks at Jeff Van Gundy’s ankle-biting in the 90s. My friend who wrote on this card is a huge Bawstin Celtics fan. As evident by his spiel here on the number of championships they have won while we have been alive. The choice of clubs is perfect for the Celtics since it looks like a clover that serves as the Celts’ logo. He really dug the project, so I thank him for contributing.

Catch a ride on the floor, man. In Back of the Envelope, the swells sometimes reach 10 centimers!
