Not-so-popular admission

I like musicals, I can't help it.  I sometimes wish life was a musical.  Like when Jeff Bunker fires me, I'd much rather have him do it singing a bass counterpoint to the chorus of the entire staff of the company, who would of course be peering through the window to his office and flinging their hands into the air in rhythm.

My wife bought me some songs from Wicked for my iphone.  I've seen the musical, and it's okay (lots of untapped potential in the story).  But some of the songs are really great, including "Popular," which I can't get out of my head.  The situation behind the song is funny, but the song itself is nothing short of brilliant.

Chicken scratch

Went to figure drawing for the first time in months.  I need to go more often, I learn so much about observation and structure every time, even when the process is frustrating.

Marvel Tribute

My employer just recently bought Marvel.  They will never let me anywhere near the characters, though, and this is why.
