So… I came home today, totally ready to put together a comic of a funny commercial I came up with on the walk home. Got home, took the dog out, remembered the I had set my illustration (for the illustration lottery) from last night on the keyboard… so it’s time to scan it, and update the blog. Computer has an error message that Mail can’t connect. I reset it, and it seems to be working fine. Go to scan the picture, and it says the scanner driver is corrupted. So, I download a new driver and install it, but with the same message… do a little research, and then decide that it’s a much larger problem than just the scanner. Run disk utility… shit is fucked. Looks like tonight will end with me backing up everything I need from the last 8 years, and having some beers. Here’s to not having enough money for a new computer… maybe I’ll be able to fix it with a reformat.
You usually don’t see it, but here’s something I can destroy… maybe I’ll continue to post the future of this sheet of paper.
…more inking practice needed day massacre.
So, this is pretty sketchy, and it’s super shitty snow storm outside so… I didn’t do my traditional Illustration Lottery for today. Anyway, here’s the sketch for a new So, I Had This Dream. It’s just the photo blue & graphite pencil, but… I did ink the text (otherwise it would appear invisible.) This will probably be done in the next couple days, so we’ll see how it turns out. Anyway, here it goes…
This shit is heavy as fuck… but super fuckin’ delicious.
- Boil the Mac
- Cube Cut the Cheese (and the Butter)
- Once Cooked, Drain the Cooked Mac
- Stir in the Cheese & Butter
- Once Melted, Stir in the Chili and…
- Cook that Shit Until Delicious is Achieved
So, the Chili that I used for this mix was one that I made in the Crock-Pot, 4 hours on high: From memory, i think it was:
- 8oz. Tomato Sauce Can
- 15oz. Chili Beans Can
- 15oz. Diced Tomato Can
- 15oz. Kidney Beans Can (Drained)
- 2lbs. Ground Beef (Cooked & Drained)
- 1 Diced Tomato (Hot House or Vine Ripe)
- 16oz. Homemade, or In-House Beef Broth
- 16oz. Water (to cut the broth, but if you use boxed shit… just use the whole 32oz.)
- Caldwell County Chili (I Used the Traditional Red Box Mix)
…and like I said in the beginning, Crock-Pot, 4 hours on high.
Makin’ it happen… old school style, at work during the downtime. I’m totally too old for this, but it felt good to sort of work up a crappy illustration in one or two minute intervals over an 8 hour period.
Blah… old school style.
