Karens B-day fun time, and Rollercoasters!!

So Monday was Karens 25th birthday, and man did we have a great time. Turns out the Knotts Berry Farm has some great off season packages availiable through their resort hotel. We got a nights stay at the hotel, free breakfast buffet, 30$ voucher for the in house restaurant, free bottle of champange in our room, and two tickets to the theme park all for about $170. Not bad for a weekend of great fun.

So anyways I think the real big thing was I actually got myself to go on the rides and rollercoasters. I know, I'm still blown away by it. Usually I'm a big chicken when it comes to rollercoasters, but Karen loves em, and I didn't want to chicken out on her on her birthday. And I had a great time, man if you're planning on going to Knotts, you gotta try their new Silver Bullet ride. Apparently its just like Batman at 6 flags, and man is it fun!!! I was terrified to go on it, but at the end of the day I couldn't get enough, and we ended up riding it 3 times. Plus there all the other fun rides like Ghost Rider and Motezoomas Revenge, which kicks ass by the way. It was a great weekend, and I was glad I got over my fear, and it really gave Karen a good fun birthday. I'm still a little wary of rollercoasters, but now I'm filled with good fun memories of how much fun they are, so I think I'll be okay.

Some Doodles In Flash

So I've learned that when you have an actual job and your busy working, you have less and less time to post on your blog. Anyways, everyones been asking me how the new job is going, and the only way I can sum up my experience is by saying.....TOTALLY FREAKING AWESOME!!!!

Okay so maybe that was a bit much, but its has been alot of fun. I'm doing alot of drawing in Flash with a wacom, and now I've fallen in love with tablets and I gotta get one of my own. I do mainly character designs for different websites. I wish I could post some of my real work, but I can't, so instead I have stuff that i've done during my lunch hour. I think that cool thing though Is I'm actually doing character designing, thats whats really got me excited.

Its also been pretty intense, I work with two other guys (kyle and randy) and they've got way more experience doing this than I do, so sometimes I get stressed, but so far everyone is likeing my work as much as I'm liking theirs. Anywho, that's whats been going, on, also karen and I did a flash commercial for a contest for a local radio station. Its at and check out the one titled "Soothe the Savage Beast" I did some of the art work but Karen Kicked some ass and animated the whole thing!! I really proud of her, and I think it came out funnier than some of the other ones that actually made it to the finals, but ehh whatcha gonna do.

Enjoy some doodles.
