Holiday Lights

Who says you need a mountain of snow and a fat guy in a red suit to have Christmas? Despite the fact that I moved away from my family and snowy Detroit many moons ago, I’ve never had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit. I’m over the whole commercial aspect of this blessed … Continue reading

Man (or Woman) Behind the Uniform

Man (or Woman) Behind the Uniform

Today while visiting the salon, my belief that “you don’t look like a Soldier!” is the best compliment a woman in my field can receive! Heaven knows I love my job and am extremely proud of the uniform I wear but the military does have a way of stripping you of a large part of … Continue reading

Meanwhile, in the world of comics we find our hero facing a new foe: chibi-style animations with a fun plot! Can we say awesome? Corny comic book talk aside, there is something pretty interesting afoot in the world of digital comics. Needless to say, Batman is involved! Yay! Author and illustrator Dustin Nguyen has taken … Continue reading

The Thin Line Between Life and Death

You know, the more videos like this one I watch I begin to get more and more interested in digital animation. It’s so cool!
