I proceeded to go on my computer and create this blog site and the did absolutely nothing with it. I mean who has time for this shit? Not only do I have to laboriously sort through my drawings, but then I have sit and scan then into my computer and upload them to the web! YUCK! Then I graduated from school and now that I'm gainfully unemployed I decided to get my butt in gear. Now, almost a year later, I present the long overdue first post:
