Auld Lang Syne

January 2, 2008

what does that even mean anyway?


according to wikipedia it loosely translates to ‘once upon a time’, just like how many fairy tales begin. The past twelve months have been crazy and I suspect the craziness will continue on into the new year. There have been those highs like finishing school, meeting interesting people, but some lows too, like missing my friends.

It might seem silly, but I really feel like there is something fresh about today.

Mister Ginseng is the first drawing I’ve made here in the year two-thousand and eight. A couple weeks back a 300 year old ginseng was sold for 400, 000 clams. I was thinking, something that old should be very wise.

    I couldn’t that link to load, then again my computer is acting crazy.
    I like this drawing a lot, I’ve been wondering what you’ve been drawing lately. I like how you turned what you were doing on PC to traditional. LIKE THE GINSENG MAN, THAT TOO IS WISE.

    Have you heard that Auld Sang Lang song thats all hardrock metal like? I can’t find that anywheres.

    thanks guys and gals:-)
    chad: i’m glad you like it – right now i’m sort of going back and forth using more or less hands on work, depending on the subject matter. i’m hoping that it all will look cohesive in the end.

    tessar: yeah, towards the end of the year i was in a bit of a funk, for reasons that we won’t get into here. but with the new year and some good news things are looking bettarrr.

    irma,yuta: thanks! i kind of want to draw mr. ginseng some more, haha. and yeah 4000k is pretty expensive, but i’m guessing it’ll give you a big energy boost and replenish your HP.
