Latest Scribbling, Comic-Con Tweets
Mostly from Comic-Con, which I went to this past weekend and had a great fun at. The huge blister on my foot is now healed!
This one’s from last week, doodling in a meeting:
And after the cut, some selected tweets by me or related to me from Comic-Con. This is in lieu of actually writing about Comic-Con today.

Sally Ride, Rest in Peace
See also her NASA biography.
She is survived by her partner of 27 years, Tam O’Shaughnessy. Because of the Defense of Marriage Act, no Federal benefits are due her. That fact is shameful.
@mittromney kind of despicable & grotesque that her partner of 27 years will be denied federal benefits, don’t you think?

Tonight’s @artlung toon I named “Rotsy”
Rotsy, Byzantine Hair, and Life Drawing
I’m drawing again. Regularly. I went to Dr. Sketchy’s this past weekend and it was a blast. Life drawing is stressful to me, but it was a great exercise to let go of judgment and just try to draw. They did 1 minute, 2 minute, 5 minute, 10 minute, and 20 minute poses. I feel cozy with 10 minutes to think and draw. During short poses I have no idea where to start. Start with a detail? Start with an overall pose? My life-drawing skills were never really great, with a few exceptions, but they’ve gone pretty fallow.
I like blue pencil, inked over top best.
But what I love and gives me the best joy lately is just taking sheets of cardstock, basically blank index cards, and drawing. Sometimes at work, on papers I take notes on. Anywhere, really. Trying to keep a notebook too.
I forgot to draw for years. It helps me think and gives me joy. Even if I’m a mediocre draughtsman, it still gives me joy.

Workspace. I enjoy sticky notes.
Thomas Paine on Property
Personal property is the effect of society; and it is as impossible for an individual to acquire personal property without the aid of society, as it is for him to mike land originally. Separate an individual from society, and give him an island or a continent to possess, and he cannot acquire personal property. He cannot be rich. So inseparably are the means connected with the end, in all cases, that where the former do not exist the latter cannot be obtained. All accumulation, therefore, of personal property, beyond what a man’s own hands produce, is derived to him by living in society; and he owes on every principle of justice, of gratitude, and of civilization, a part of that accumulation back again to society from whence the whole came.
– Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice, 1797
