Sweat Shop!

This one's for everyone who went down to Comic-con and got hot 'n' sweaty amongst the nerd herd:


I didn't go myself, but I felt the hot 'n' sweaty out here in the San Fernando Valley as record temperatures blew out power to several lucky areas last Saturday, including our block. For 2 and a half days, 108 degree temperatures turned our home into a lovely mid-century oven. Perfect conditions for attempting to finish the freelance I had under-taken! Trying to work in a crowded, noisy coffee joint (not recommended) led to finally renting a hotel room the 2nd night so I could work and we could actually sleep.

Today, power was restored..... and we had a refridgerator to clean out. So thanks for putting up with the lack of a new post for the *big* weekend. I have a new batch of doodles to post once I clean 'em up a bit, so just be patient...


...and if you didn't go to Comic-con, this is all you missed.

Ahhh!! Darth Maul kept standing up in front of me during the Titans screening. I wanted to kick his ass, but he's Darth Maul. Have you heard of Barclay's coffee shop? I think it's in an open mall area on Tampa and Nordhoff. There was a kinko's there. I used to go there to work on freelance for the dragon lady when I lived in the valley with no air conditioning. And free ice tea refills!!

Great Maul!

I thought it was hot in San Diego on Saturday...it was 119 degrees in Woodland Hills that day. Sorry I missed that...:P

I've been to Barclay's coffee shop! It's pretty nice in there with paintings on the walls.

Love your Darth Maul drawing!! No kidding about the heat, last week, 2 electric boxex in Santa Monica 3rd st blow up, the lid shot 100 feet up in the air, thanks goodness no one get hurt ... all these drama cause by the heat ... many business in the area are out of power, and servers have to shut down.
