Book cover art and other news

Postby HeRetiK » Mon Sep 03, 2007 6:05 pm

One of my illustrations got licensed as cover art for the recently published book "The Sabotage Cafe" by Joshua Furst. The cover is based on a stencil graffiti portrait I made of Tina, who once used to be my girlfriend. She also played the leading role in the recently released first music video from my friends of the band Trashcanned.
In other news, I fixed and improved Animotion! Now you can directly link to your Animotion sequences. Victory Dance!

Wasn't she like 10 year younger than you or some shit?

I can understand the sexual appeal of younger women, but I'd never date one. Unless you enjoy discussing nothing but teenage drama.

Wow, that was really weird, watching those goth screaming rockers performing in broad daylight. It looked really cheesy.

You're right, I don't. I'm just basing my opinion on all the girls I know my age. They're either interested in relationships or drama. It's gotten to the point now where I just avoid girls my age.

And it's weird cuz it seems like it's JUST girls. Like, I was talkin to my friend the other day about String Theory and this friend of his enters the room and starts babbling on about drama at where she works. The fuck!?

Damn, you're right! :evil:

The one on the right side was difficult to spot. Besides, the piles are level so there had to be 5 in each.

You win, have a cookie.

I personally haven't read it yet. But there are 2 good reviews on Amazon and my father didn't say anything bad about it, so I guess it's alright.
