Dr Sketchy Singapore

I can't believe I haven't put this up already.
A random spotting on Facebook pointed me to the dream group.
Now seeing as the Drink And Draw society died off because of it being impossible to organise around work (other than the odd spontaneous sesh).
Anyway, found this Dr Sketchy club. Genius idea. Get a model to pose. Evryone does lots of drawing. Drinks and games.
So along I went, late, as ever. It was brilliant. This was the second Dr Sketchy, my first, the model was Tami, who was just WOW. Especially when she did the upside down pose for 10 MINUTES.
Oh yeah. I won one of the competitions and got sent to pose with Tami. Yeah lifes tough. Though I realise how tough sitting still for 5 mins so I have no idea how Tami held her poses for so long.
Here's the reults:

And here's a link to the Dr Sketchy blog and footage of my brief moment in the limelight

DC comics don't want you if you're not local

Brilliant insight from Marc-Oliver Frisch at The Beat as to why so many comics suck
DC Comics is simply not interested in selling its comics to people who don’t already read them.

I’m not making this up. DC Comics Executive Editor Dan DiDio says so, all the time and on the record. Asked in a recent Newsarama piece why his DC Universe imprint doesn’t publish more low-priced entry-level comics, DiDio says:

“When we’re working with pre-existing characters and properties as we do in the DC Universe, people are mostly predisposed and understand who our characters are, so the idea of a wider sampling at a lower price isn’t nearly as necessary as it is with Vertigo.”

The logical conclusion, evidently, is to sometimes publish low-priced comics, but make absolutely sure that they are impenetrable to the general public, lest anyone not among the predisposed might be accidentally seduced into buying a Superman comic.

You wonder how these people stay in business

From the dusty files: random botak

Dunno where the quote is from. If its something I came up with I'm impressed with my old self.
Very old mac font there I see.

This is a long forgotten Mother's Day gem from 2004/5. Around then. Sort of.
