Ooops

I just heard from Elliot Wagoner, who's been interested in this business from the get-go (you'll note his website linked to the right), yet who I forgot to list in the "Welcome to" post below. Anyway, that makes eleven.

Thanks! It's no problem.

By the way, I'm Elliot. I'm 15, almost 16. Just so you know 17 is not the youngest age here...

I've had classes with "Mr. Towle" in the past, and I'd say I know quite a bit about this whole comic art business now...

Thanks again, Ben!

Whoops... Maybe I should have put more...

I currently attend Reynolds HS as a sophomore, and it is a boring year...

Oh, well. I started art waaaaaay back in elementary school, and my teachers encouraged me to go further with it. This continued through middle school, and then I met Ben through a Comics Art Class he taught at the Sawtooth.(Ask him about Steakman. I'm sure he'll have a ball explaining it...)

Anyways, since then, I had one more class with him. That was last summer. Now I'm here. Posting. This. Entry. In his blog.

I sure hope that's enough...

When I was a youngin' sittin' on ma' pappy's knee I said, "Pawl, when I git to be an' ol' lady, like Aunty Squish, I wanna be a lawyr." An pappy, well pappy jest starred and starred at me for the longest time and than he look down at me from his bushy eyebrows (which be at least as long as them juicy yellow catapillers down by the 'backie).

He said "Youngster, iffin iz be you I'd listen hard to this ad-vice that Iz a gunna give ya'. You jest ain't smart nuff to be a lawyr, well ya' ain't even smart nuff to know when not ta' git on ol' Bessie's nerves. 'Stedda bein' a lawyr or a duckter or any them smart city-slicker jobs.. ya know, you shud be a art-eest. You can paint ol' bessie and the 'backie... why ya could even paint Mr. Mack Fall lazin' 'bout at tha' gas station."

An' well, I jest knew than that I wuz gunna be a real art-eest. An' ain't nobuddy gunna tell me I can't.

Ahem. Actually, I'm Antonina Whaples and Ben was my art teacher at Governor's School 2004... that is all.

We really are letting the South get to us these days...

I think we should embrace the hilarious inspiration that is the south.

Fennec, Mack Fall? I have no idea what you are alluding to....:P

All introductions should reveal something of the true nature of the author. In this case, insanity comes to mind.

I agree with the south being a hilarious inspiration... And as for the insanity, well, good luck with it.

(I sure hope this all doesn't count as spam)

According to the Amazing SPAM Homepage:

In the U.S. alone, 3.8 cans of Spam "are consumed every second"(assuming SPAM is eaten 24 hours a day, 365.25 days a year).

Nikita Krushchev credited SPAM with the survival of the WWII Russian army. Quothe the Krushchev: "Without SPAM, we wouldn't have been able to feed our army."

If I had been in the Russian army circa WWII I could not only have consumed large ammounts of SPAM, but also been able to refer fondly to the "mother country"?

Somethings in life just aren't fair.
And just because I post a lot doesn't mean that I don't have a life... somewhere...

"Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;" - Monty Python

That is a classic right there...
And there's a SPAM homepage? Wow. I never dreamed such a useless site could exist... Oh, well.
