Y: The Last Man

About ten minutes ago I finally finished the graphic novel series Y:The Last Man. I've been plowing through all ten books, one after another, like candy. I haven't been able to get enough of them and now it's over. It's all over. It's been a long time since I've finished a book(s) and found myself so engaged with the story and characters that I was sad when I came to the end.

I can't believe it ended.

Most of my friends are comic book geeks (I say this with great affection), but up until about two years ago I could never get into them. Then I took a chance and read Watchmen and I've spiraled into graphic novel heaven ever since. So far, everything I've read I've loved, but Y: The Last Man was the first to actually make me fight back tears when I came to the end.

The graphic above begins the premise of the story; A plague hits the earth killing every living being with a Y chromosome...except one man and his monkey, Ampersand. Dun dun dun!!! I could go into it further, but then I'd give away too much. So, in short, READ THESE BOOKS!


PS. Why does it have to be over? le sigh.

Girl Crush

I can't deny that my girl crush on Zooey Deschanel is getting more and more out of hand.

This video doesn't help.

She & Him - Don't Look Back from Merge Records on Vimeo.

PS. I don't mean to snuff M. Ward by any means. I crush him, too. :)

Catch Up

It would seem I haven't posted here since August. I guess that happens when you start a blog that requires you to post something everyday for a year. :)

Anyhoo, I'm just going to play a quick catch up on the things that I've made recently. My peeps on the Facebook seem to enjoy photos of the things I make, so I might as well share it here, too.

Work in progress:
