I'm into most things. I like art of all varieties --- start with the Venus of Willendorf and work up from there. I write poetry and prose. I talk too much.

Feel free to drop me a note about anything.

It's actually based on a set of comic/illustrations by Saul Steinberg, in which he elides actual text with text-ish things.

you recognized the quote. I'm impressed ;)

That last panel is fantastic.

They're just poor

Yes, I have been lax in my duty. I have been doing interesting things that are not envelopes, so I don't feel that bad. I will update regularly again, though.

If I get the time this weekend I'll complete a project which will change my process quite a great deal. We'll see how it goes.
It took
rather less time than he expected. He was home for tea.
That just means you don't know where I shot you and how fast you died at an accuracy below a simple proportion of Planck's constant: (Error_in_location_of_injury)*(Error_in_Alacrity_of_death) >= h/2.

The joke is still on me, of course --- if as I shoot, you calculate the speed of your death with extreme accuracy, you won't know whether I shot you or not. Then you'll have split second to be alive-and-dead and insult me as a mere 'Doctor,' before your waveform collapses and either you collapse as well, or you wisely repeat that one word.

calls me Doc-Doc behind my back. One day he says it to my face, and I have him fed to ravenous chinchillas.

Thanks. The real question is what she needed the welding helmet for.

of images is just fun. This was a sort of automatic combination of a phrase (Being This Wind) and a vivid concept of the smell and texture of an army helmet. I have no idea what it all means.

Then you need to read copper.

Today I
built myself a desk. It is quite large.

I'm going to go back to daily comics. Every other day is a cop out.
I really like

Your comment led me to look up How Things Work, which led inevitably to How Stuff Works, where I read about Burj Dubai, and then re-read the lock-picking article for the umpteenth time, which sent me to youtube to watch a DIY lockpick video, which reminded me that my workshop is practically devoid of tools because I'm broke, which led me to research more scholarships.

Now it's noon and I haven't had breakfast.

It might take
a moment for this one to sink in.

On a side note, for those of you who don't read envelopes' front page, I am moving to an every-other-day schedule. Daily comics just weren't up to my standards for quality.
February 15th, 2008
Well, thank you for that!

This isn't as bad
an idea as this comic might suggest.

This is today's comic, by the way. yesterday's is still sitting here on my desk. It's 2:00AM. I'll tell you this: the title of yesterday's comic is "A Note on Scale."
Yeah, get to it, bud. I look forward to your updates over most of the other comics in my favorites --- so go on and update already.

I need to keep an eye on
my text-size. I like my speech bubbles to look rather empty, but this is getting hard to read... a finer-tip pen or bigger text!
Look at that:
Mornington Crescent!
