Comment on No Golfin' Around of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

Happy Independence Day!
Yes, this person didn't work out in the end, but he was loads better than some of the ones I've met up with.

So far, it is a small trend that if I start playing with my ice or my cold water glass in general, I am most likely uninterested. D-:
----------------------------------------------------
I've been listening to a lot of Belle & Sebastian, but also the new album by Stornoway ("Bonxie") has finally grown on me! I am SUPER pumped at the thought of them crossing the pond for another tour.
My favorite tracks from Bonxie:
"Love Song of the Beta Male"
"Lost Youth"
"Man on Wire"
Comment on This Year's Father's Day Card of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

Happy Father's Day!
I hope you all are celebrating your dads or father figures today! My family always makes fun of my Dad's MiO pods, how he mixes with water with other squirtable energy drinks and gets WAY more caffeine and sugar than he really needs.

The first panel is actually the front of the envelope that I presented to him.

--------------------------------------------------
Also, sorry I haven't really updated. The whole comic-every-week thing started to feel more like a work assignment rather than a way to de-stress. I have been feeling more enjoyment making personal cards for friends and family with esoteric inside-jokes, and, because of the dissolution of a more than 2-year-relationship, I was going through a period of anhedonia for a few months. Shout-out to family and friends who helped talk me through things!

I had been listening to a lot of Bahamas (stage name for Afie Jurvanen) in the past few months, not only because I could relate to a lot of his songs, but also because my friend and I were seeing him June 19th (he was great!). We stuck it out after the show and we got autographs from him and some of his band members. I "Aaaaaafie?'d" a second time and got a photo op with him. He stood in-between us and HE TOUCHED OUR SHOULDERS. What a babe. His wife and newborn daughter are lucky ducks!

Here's an unplugged favorite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Tw17XPs1Dg&feature=youtu.be

Also, he and his band were so dang polite (ex/ "We aren't used to so many people nicely swaying and singing along, thank you" and, "I've never seen people get so riled up over sad music before").
Comment on Advertising Storyboard Part 2 of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

This was for part of my group's final project for Pharmaceutical Advertising!
Be sure to click "previous" if you haven't read part one yet!

This is part two for the storyboard portion of my group's final project (cut out a lot of the storyboard text for posting here, though). Yes, these are not the best drawings I ever made, but considering that I knocked these out after a whirlwind of my last finals (EVA'!), I am pretty proud of the overall result.

My group had to create a dossier of sorts with creative briefs, SWOT analysis, mock journal ads and sales aids, etc (not posted here on my webcomic, obviously). Credits to Matt for the name, Christopher/Binks for the ideas of the Spartans and the concept of "forging metals" (I immediately thought, "SWORD. ALLOY" right after he said it), and Prianka for her ginormous laptop screen, laughs, and hilariously heightened aversion to the Mucinex dude.

A gorgeous day!
It's crazy how I only have a few weeks left of classes...and then I get kicked out of my nest and start to frantically flap my wings with hopes of soaring in the real world (with a year of rotations starting at the end of June)!

IT'S HAPPENING.

Also- JOSH is releasing an album of Broadway hit covers soon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpA511j_-5I

No more talk of darkness, he croons! Forget these wide-eyed fears!

This was drawn a while ago, but not finished until today!
My hair is now significantly shorter than it is in this comic!

Sorry I cannot update as frequently as I would like!

So...anyway...what is new with you? Yeah? Yeah? That's great! :-)
Comment on Why Didn't I Tell Her? of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

Jess and I both really like animal and travel docs
Jess was telling me a funny story how she was in the dining hall and how "All By Myself" and how terrible it was how she was in fact eating all by herself.

Similarly, yesterday at the dining hall, the radio just so happened to be playing Janis Joplin's "Piece Of My Heart"- otherwise it's a good song, but in certain circumstances, it makes you want to hurl projectile vomit at the speakers in the ceiling (yuck)!

If you don't have a special significant other on this lovely commercialized holiday, don't forget that you're never alone, and, when you spread positivity in the face of adversity, good things usually come your way!
Comment on My "Pharmaceutical Advertising" Homework Assignment of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle
labradorduck, 07 Feb 2015 10:01 pm
"Just a little homework! Tonight!"
I usually don't get homework assignments in which I am allowed to utilize my drawn' skillz, so this was a nice change of pace. It was even...fun? I also enjoyed getting homework grade points for talking about myself (oh ho ho ho...).

Also, I will most likely be going "full throttle" again with illustration commissions and 2nd drafts for one of my side-jobs, so you may find that updates will be even slower again, but do not fret! Comics will come (...eventually)! D-:

Also also, I was in a thrift store with Shannon today and there must have been ~20 Johnny Mathis records and all the clothes seemed to be one size/type (1970's prairie Mom)...I wonder if it was from the owner's Mom's old closet 0__0.

How has everyone's winter holiday been?
Mine has been pretty nice. I've gotten the time to catch up with friends, family, reading...vidja games...
Comment on The Piemaker of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

Just in time for the holidays!
Probably because of his science background, Steve has a pretty good knack for baking (you're essentially following a protocol, like with an experiment). I, on the other hand, have no patience for exact measurements and little room for error.

I was especially proud of myself (oh, ho ho ho) for making an awesome (oh, ho ho ho) improvisation with my Thanksgiving contribution this past weekend. I was assigned the task of whipping up some candied yams, and I found Emeril Lagasse's recipe for them (where he "kicks it up a notch!"). My Mom got really mad when she found this out ("Why you got to do a harder recipe? Now we all won't be eating until TEN". FYI, my recipe only took about 30 minutes longer in prep and cooking than her usual recipe).

Here is the recipe I used for a foundation: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/rhodas-candied-sweet-potatoes-kic ked-up-recipe.print.html

We didn't have any oranges or orange juice, so I substituted a grapefruit (I used grapefruit rind and squeezed out the juice). We didn't have any bourbon, but I substituted it with rum since I had had rum in grapefruit soda before, and I knew the flavors complimented each other well. The result? My Dad saying my dish was the highlight of the Thanksgiving dinner (oh, ho ho ho) AND I witnessed my Mom helping herself begrudgingly to two portions ;-) I only tease my Mom, though- she gave me the tip to scoop out excess fluid prior to baking the yams to prevent them from getting overly soggy.

Anyway, my dear American readers, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving...and...to all my other readers, thank you for continuing to check into the site! :-)
