IM in ur studio...

....beggin 4 a jobz. -_-;;;

Well, it's of Friday, I am an unemployed shmo. WAH. After all the kicking and screaming I did...well...there's nothing you can do about a shortage of work, right?
Well, moving on, let's take a look at an exciting recap of events, shall we? Like...

~The release of Rock Band! Woo! I know I want one! :D
~My friend and former VFS-er Michelle got married on Saturday! Michelle, Tzanko...shine on, you crazy diamonds! Congratulations!!
~Again, promoting my art
~This....I saw this on, and it nearly made me cry. It's a lovely little story centered around the Gamecube smash-hit Animal Crossing. (The music playing is the piano version of 'To Zanarkand' from Final Fantasy X). Go tell your Mama and/or Papa that you love them. <3

Y'know, I thought I had a lot more to talk about, but I guess not. :S Ah well.
Have a great week, everyone!

I'm making a note here...

....Huge success....

....Well, okay, I'm not sure if it's a success yet. We'll have to wait and see. (Any of you Portal fanboys will get the title joke. :3 )

I've made an art/portfolio blog! It's just called Kelly's Portfolio....I'm going to continue to post piccies and doodles on Tea Time, but the other one is just more 'professional.' Hoping to grab some contract ends tomorrow, and it's depressing and stressful as hell not having a job.
Around Christmas time.
When your computer monitor dies.
....And your fish tank starts acting up.

....Yeah. In any case, it's out of my hands...all I can do is try.

Hmmm....what else....well, aside from imminent joblessness, I've been totally digging Team Fortress 2 out of Valve's Orange Box. I play on my friends' boyfriends' computer when I go over....I can't wait to get a copy for myself. Pyro is my best friend, especially when certain people *wink* play as spies.....BEWARE MY FLAMES (AND SHOTGUN) OF JUSTICE!! ^_^
Playing Persona 3....saw Pixar's Ratatouille on Monday....amazing. Absolutely stunning....Brad Bird, sir, you have done it again. A must buy for anyone, animation enthusiast or not.
Hmmm....well, aside from some exciting news that I don't think I have the authority to divulge, nothing else....
Keep it real, all you dawgs! :3


PS - Feel I should do some comic plugs....
~ Josh Lesnick's Girly is great. Still. Drop whatever you're doing and go read Girly!
~ F@nboy$ by Scott Dewitt is teh awesome. This man has a great sense of volume for his characters. Did I mention it was also funny?
~This one is great....a haven for SSB geeks, and people who just think Link is the cutest thing ever....Awkward Zombie!
~This one....Rice Boy....I'm not even sure what to think of it, but it's just so....interesting. Really neat graphic style, and the story just sucks you right in. A beautiful tale of saving the world, even if it doesn't seem like it's worth it...

Happy reading!

What are the haps my friends

Happy Friday, all~

Payday is a bittersweet thing. Or, to say, it would be sweeter if we didn't have those, ya know, 'responsibilities.' :3 Like, technically, I could buy that Xbox 360 I've wanted for several months, and just not pay any bills. And rent. Pssshhhht. ^_^

Hmmm....what is going on....Oh! First off, the list of the ten 'animated' films (and I use the term VERY loosely) in the running for the Acadamy Awards has been released. Some of the choices (*cough*Beowulf*cough*) make me (*hack*AlvinandtheChipmunks*wheeze*) want to curl up on the floor and cry. Others, like Persepolis, Ratatouille, and Tekkonkinkreet make me very happy. ^_^
Place your votes, ladies and gents! And God help us all if Aqua Teen Hunger force takes the cake. I, among with the entire artistic community, will declare animation officially dead.

“Alvin and the Chipmunks”
“Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters”
“Bee Movie”
“Meet the Robinsons”
“Shrek the Third”
“The Simpsons Movie”
“Surf’s Up”

Hmmmm...speaking of animation (of a different variety), I stumbled across the news that two gaming franchises (one prominent, one an underground cult hit) will be getting their own animated feature/series, respectively.
The first will be the long-loved Castlevania series. I have NO idea what it's supposed to be about, but you can look at the fledgeling production blog here.
Second, and by far my personal favourite, is going to be SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI: PERSONA!!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
I've played every SMT game for the PS2, and even own the original Persona for the PS1. They are my all-time favourite RPG series. Yes, I love them even more than Final Fantasy.
And I like my Final Fantasy.
I found the news on, and this is actually going to be a series based ten years after the events of Persona 3. I am unfortunately not that long into the game (full-time work will do that), but it's a phenomenal gaming experience. Seriously. Go out and buy it. RIGHT NOW. ^_^
But really....I wonder what they're going to do with it?

That's about all I've got right now...Keep it real, ladies and gents - I gotta go work on my demo reel. Job ends next Friday....*sigh* I wanted to grab that special ed. of Assassin's Creed. Maybe another time, Altair. :3
