These songs by Tokimonsta can put you on a positive.
In “Darkest (Dim)” it’s not the lyrics but the tone of voice that does it for me.
Good vibes, Love and Peace.

So I’m getting older.

It’s a trip when you think about death.  It’s going to happen to all of us.  I sometimes wonder how many doctors are out there practicing for profit.  People that end up with shit like cancer- do their doctors try to heal them or do they just do  what is necessary to keep the patient alive and on medication.

This past June I dislocated my shoulder.  It fucking hurt.  Along with the dislocation I had a scrape with a deep-ass cut in the center of it on my knee.  The doctor prescribed me an ointment that I was to apply twice a day.  I did, but on the third day I was going to put more cream on the wound, I didn’t.  The edges of the scrape were bright red, as if someone drew on me with a loud red marker.  The cut in the the scrapes center was turning nasty, looked meaty and raw.  I freaked out so I doused it with peroxide and with ten to twenty minutes it cleared.  I informed the doctor.  She tells me “don’t use the peroxide too much, it will kill healthy skin/tissue too, just use soap and water to clean it and keep it clean.”  SOAP AND WATER!!!  Why didn’t she tell me that in the first place?

Everyone have a great weekend!


I’ve been meaning to work on “Mushroom Hill” for days now. Other projects have stolen the attention. Here is one of the distractions, my new facebook cover image. I took the picture from the top of the Echo Mountain hiking trail.  I played around with a couple of adjustment layers and cropped the image in Photoshop to suit the mood I was going for and to fit the dimensions of the facebook cover slot.  You can view the original picture on instagram. I then opened up my ZBrush project “Pedrito” and did a quick render using the ‘Outline Thin’ material and put the two together in Photoshop.

Mushroom Hill

Years back I attended animation classes at East Los Angeles College. One of the results was an animation short that I conjured for an assignment. I titled it “Mushroom Hill.” I kept it simple. Three characters. One good, one bad and a victim. I went as far as making a stick figure animatic-an animated storyboard.
For a while now I’ve been wanting a puppet so I have decided to bring “Mushroom Hill” to life. I will start by building the set, the hill and the mushroom. Here is my animatic.

Pedrito A work in progress.

Almost complete. Originally I wanted him to be a full figure, I might open his file up and add limbs later, but for now he will be a bust. In case you are not familiar with it, in this video I am using a software called ZBrush. For those familiar with it I am sculpting in Dynamesh with a 384 resolutions setting, no particular reason for the 384 resolution, I just move the slider to increase the number.
