Nearly three months down.  I'm making money, but can't seem to enjoy it.  Now if you excuse me, I'm going to hallucinate wiring operator interface terminals or testing junction boxes for a's the only thing I really enjoy.  Whee...

Oh, and I'm slowly developing a passionate hatred of commercial radio in my area.  Country music is a cesspool of pickup trucks, boots, jiggling breasts, and drunken sex.  Songs are repeated five times within a shift.  Perhaps their intended audience is supposed to be drunk enough to not notice.  On a more general note, the only way the voice-tracking on the local I Heart Clear Channel stations could be more obviously robotic is if it were spoken by Paul, Tom, and Donna.  Oh, wait, their announcements change, and they're less disingenuous about being synthetic.  (I'm referencing the synthesized voices on KHB59.  Paul does station identification, Tom does general weather announcements, and Donna does marine forecasts.)  I have nothing else to occupy my mind with.

I can't go on about just how maddening it is (or take the co-workers' radio and spike it) lest I lose my job.  I have a plan that involves rebroadcasting Pandora or Spotify, which means that everyone can have a two-hour block of random music of their favorite genre played on the radios (which would be tuned to the low-power FM transmitter's broadcast), which should make everyone something other than unhappy...but I need to convince everyone that it's a good idea.  Hmm.

I am the only US citizen left in the power systems courses.  Let that sink in for a bit.  No one else from around here cares about vital infrastructure enough to take this course.  I'm also ready to collapse by the time I get to campus, the trip over from work just doesn't give me enough deco time.  At least it will all be over in May.

Well, nothing's being done here.  I'm too tired to form mental images beyond abstract scribbles.  I want to finish the group shot, draw an unhappy Tankaa being hugged by Colin while fangirls squee, and finish those ship designs.  I'd like to write down more of the ideas I have...there are so many things I'd love to speculate about, ranging from the Wayward Wyverns to why Tankaa and Ori are who they are.  Will I ever...?

I just want to collapse and sleep forever, but I can't do that. Maybe I'll see about having my hours pared back.

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I'm a part-time artist, electrical engineering graduate student, slide rule collector, railfan, watcher of mecha anime, avid reader, and geek-of-all-trades.

Primary Characters: Tankaa Kumawani (anthro pliosaur), and Ori Hadar (anthro D&D-type blue dragon).

I do not take requests. People who I'm on good terms with tend to get a bit of giftart, though. I'm currently too backlogged to do trades.

I usually do not RP. I've had too many bad (or simply lousy) experiences with it.

You're welcome.  I don't really have much use for points, so I might as well hand out the ones that pile up.

Hey thanks for the watch!  Like your stuff; you're doing a webcomic?

Well, collaborating with a friend on some of the technical aspects.  I have less and less time to pitch in these days, I really want to finish re-working some of the ships and colony overviews during semester break.

You're welcome.  Agh, I should have thrown one of your primaries into this year's group shots...well, there's always 2015.

Oh? Whatcha mean by primaries?

Main (or heavily used) original/personal characters.  I don't really like using the word fursona as it's rather charged, so I came up with something that was widely applicable--it doesn't matter if the character is a toaster, human, space slug, or dinosaur.
