Happy Halloween everyone!

Also…this just in. Friend, fellow blogger and gifted portrait photographer Kim Ayres has just posted his third annual pumpkin carving post. It’s well worth the visit to see his pumpkin carving not to mention his photography.

Here’s something I just happened upon for those animation fans out there. An interview with the legendary Andreas Deja.

Comment by Fiona.q

Hi Fiona, They are actually Z’s sideways that could very well be mistaken for an N. It’s a very old comic book denotation that’s often used in English text that references sleeping. Take a look at this if you like..http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=zzz

One reason I always come back to your blog, is that the people you draw look like human beings. They depict some very characteristic human types and do so with wit and flair. This guy looks like an old man of wisdom, who somehow got bored with himself.

I think that’s the most wonderful compliment I’ve recieved about my work. Thank you!
Also upon being reminded yesterday I thought it a good place to share some of his back story.
The story goes…
He goes off to dream…to escape the web that makes a slave of him. He does become bored with this, after all he is human. It doesn’t take him long to realize he’s better off with his dreams than in a web of lies.
