To start things out, I thought I'd begin by showing you guys my latest project, BOB and GIANT ROBOT - Episode 1. It's the first part of a three episode animated miniseries I'm doing. BOB and GIANT ROBOT tells the tale of... Bob and Giant Robot. Bob is Superbob, discount superhero. Giant Robot is... a Giant Robot. These things aren't complicated.
Originally, this was intended to be a three installment comic, not to mention the art has been done for a while, but I had this odd inspiration to turn it into animation. So, all of the artwork is traditional, hand drawn stuff. It's not in my usual style either - as I felt this weird style lent itself more to the mood of this particular series.
So, I'll be putting one of these out every once and a while... so enjoy the bizarre humor of it all. Episodes 2 and 3 will eventually show up to complete the tale of our tragic, spiky haired hero and his gigantic metallic companion.
So, things have been slowly returning to normal over the last few days. I'm settling into my classes, as I've had about half of them already. Frankly, it's nice to be home in Eau Claire... to be able to sit back, relax, and kick back in my own place again. Of course, I really can't relax all that much, but as I haven't had half of my classes yet I can pretend that I have a lot of free time. Delusions are fun! *grins*
You know, I realize in moments like this that I've lived in this room for two years now, and it's become as close to home as anything else in my adult life. While I'll be happy to leave in May, a part of me will miss my oddly constructed box of a living space.
It's also nice to be able to just walk over and see Crysta whenever I feel like it, instead of having to drive a half hour across town. More and more, I realize how much I like my life now that it's significantly more drama free. There are things that I used to let bother me and control me, but I'm not going to let them anymore -- it's not worth the personal stress.
Oh, and I fixed my remote control. Turns out it was actually the TV, and unplugging it and then plugging it back in was all I ended up having to do. Technology is wacky sometimes, technology is wacky...
