The invaders seem to have been destroyed, and the Secret Underground Headquarters is back in contact with the outside world. Productivity remains at a standstill, however, as a lot of software and drivers need to be reinstalled. Back at it soon...

Friends, Romans, Countrymen-

I come to bury Ceasar, or at least a nasty virus that someone has unleashed on my unsuspecting system. Despite having it clearly identified by my firewall, finding info on it on the net, and trying several removal programs, it still insists on trying to access the internet. This madness must stop, so a complete scrub down and re-install is about to occur. In other words, I'm nuking the bastard. So what if my cities will become radioactive wastelands? I cannot allow a foreign invader to corrupt the purity of my file system. This will not stand! Anyway, this little bug-hunt has been consuming my time and energy, and more will be required to rebuild on the ashes I am about to create. Therefore, a slight pause in productivity will now ensue. Wish me luck. See you on the other side.

This is Wreck-Lass, about as close as I can get to the Super Hero genre. Originally she was going to have her own book, and may yet, but in talking with Lou 'loopy' Pirro, who collaborating with me on the original Eaton Pye, He-Man Artist story, we decided to fold her in as a supporting character, and I'm pretty happy with that. Who hasn't wished he had a girl with a big hammer to back him up from time to time?

I'm still trying to find the right place to put serial art- all I know so far is this is quite it. Who knew that this would be so complicated? Or that I would be so friggin tired all the time? It may be time for a nap.

I spent a lot of time yesterday and again today, in between emergencies and various forms of drudgery, trying to suss out the intracacies of the blogosphere. Really, how tedious. I did check out a couple of hosts for comics, but I didn't much care for the way things were laid out, other than the fact that it was easy to start at the beginning and read to the end. A nice feature, of course, but not enough. I saw that some practitioners of the web-comic art have modified their little desmenes (I hesitate to say domains, as that now means something rather specific)in attractive ways, but I don't think I have the time figure all that out on top of everything else just now. Anyway, all this has left little time for actually drawing, painting, etc- not that there was any to begin with. But the night is young...

First of all, I've got a crushing headache of the kind that the gentle spring breezes tend to bring to Megatuberopolis at about 80 mph every spring. Pollen, pesticides, fetilizer, herbicides, radioactive waste and fist-sized grains of 'dust' make for a heady brew. Of course, I tell myself, at least it is spring, so the temperatures are soaring above 30 degrees. Farenheit. We don't believe in the metric system here in Megatuberopolis.
On top of this I have the headache known as the Information Superhighway in polite circles, or the f@$)!kE^%* internet in others. Having been in a cryogenic coma under the Arctic ice for several decades, I have a lot of catching up to do, and it's making my head throb. This blogging bidniz, for instance, seems straightforward enough, until you start trying to actually get someone to read the damn thing. Then, all of a sudden, you have to deal with backlinks and RSS feeds and webcrawlers and so on and so on. I'm sensitive artist, fer crying out loud! I shouldn't have to know this stuff.
Also, I realize that in addition to this little jewel of on-going virtual blather, I need an actual web-site of some kind where I can post sequential art in- get this- sequence. This blog stuff is all very well for the kinds of random slop I've been posting so far, but it's a hard way to read a comic.
So, I'm forced to conclude, the House of Pye needs it's own in-house IT expert, webmaster and all around interwob widgeteer. Volounteers? Anyone. That's what I thought...

Hot Slice

Every so often I try to put together a Pye Girl pic. This one isn't particularly polished, I still have a fair amount of rust in the joints. And I have yet to remember much of what I've forgotten about photoshop. If only Plato had been right...

Today has been a day mostly of scurrying, waiting for things, and scurrying some more. In between I've managed to do a little sketching and paste this together, just to keep my hand in. Perhaps tomorrow will be more productive, artwise.
