Caffeine Induced Tragedy...


What do you do during many hours sipping the juice of ground beans at the local coffee shop?

One suggestion is to channel the caffeine buzz into co-op fantasy art drawing with the Barista.
Look at the bottom of the image after my name to see the tragic part.

She spent like 3 hours shading the upper bricks. :^) (Napoleon reference)
You should have been there for the Liger drawing competition, it was intense.

Thanks Casin!

  1. Nice draw. I know how it is, althought I may be far more dramatic than you. Or not. My ArtRage stuff goes from fields of flowers to black eyes full of tears over deep red background. The nonsense I would really like to draw, I´m not skilled enough. Dammit. So all of this are just boxes for the other ones. (The little prince reference). Either that or write a bad poem (oh but I put so much effort into it, six pharagraps sometimes take 1.5+ hours). Or read: Science, Philosophy or Post Cyberpunk SF >;*) What else?

    I love your draw but I don´t see why is it tragic. I would ask you to explain but since you know as well as I do that art, when explained, becames trivial (Il Postino Reference), I´ll just shut up and stare at it every time I have a tragic day.

About the Rune "Algiz"...

I have been asked about the Rune and what it means, and after a bit of online research I found out quite a few interesting things. Before this search, I knew it meant "safehaven" or "protection". There are some interesting things to interpret from it's meaning and my use of it. Seems the Dark Lord was a guardian/protector... and one of my favorite finds during this search for the meaning was the following bit of inspiration that is from the www.tarahill.com site. You will also see this below, but I wanted to put it here too for emphasis.


"In terms of the journey, we have passed through death and rebirth, and must now face the Guardian before returning to our world. It is he who charges us to use our new-found power wisely. The person can no longer be simply concerned with their own personal development, but must now consider the effect that their actions may have on others. This is a crucial turning point, and the person will either choose to adopt a system…

Textual Mind Erosion...

It is still a mystery to me how we are able to transfer concepts and thoughts from one mind to another via text on screens and in pages. But, yet it seems to happen everytime I let my eyes and mind connect for a session of blissful, detached yet mindful, reading of glorious texts. Is there really a transmission of new thoughts from the characters or does the text somehow unlock the understanding that already exists within my mind. Is it like the potential energy of a boulder that has always been on the side of a cliff, but takes years of erosion to be uncovered and transition to kinetic?

I tend to read many books at the same time and start new ones before I finish others.
This may not be the most effective way to read texts, but, I am not always in the same mood when I sit to read, so I have many books of many topics and styles so that I can grab whatever seems most interesting at the time. The titles with a splat in front of them are what are currently in progress, the others are fig…

Open letter to god Janus...

Dear god Janus,
It is comforting to know that the feeling symbolized in the god Janus is not new to humanity.
Facing in different directions at the same time.
past / future, young / old, winter / spring, transition...

I am feeling like you lately, facing where I have been while looking to the future.



The question I would like to ask is...
Are you always like that, constantly split, or do you ever get to look in one direction and devote yourself to it?

It seems to me that you cannot devote yourself to one direction, unless you were to cut off one of your faces. This would of course change who you are, and leave you disfigured and unrecognizable as your former self. But is that a bad thing? Would the disfigurement make you more beautiful in other ways?

Hey Janus, if you are out there, any advice would be welcome.
