Celebrate the Small Things - Friday the 13th, 2018



We celebrated my aunt's 88th birthday on Sunday and got to spend time with our extended family. I told my librarian cousin, Jill, that was reading Finnish comics called Moomin. Moomin is very popular in Japan. Jill lived in Japan for two years and was familiar with it. I told her about the Moomin theme park that opened up in Japan last year. She looked it up and was excited that it was in Saitama, Japan. She told her husband that they had to go there. He just touched his forehead and closed his eyes. lol There is a mascot convention there that she also wants to go to where they celebrate mascots from all over the world. Strange, but it sounds amusing.

This week, I discovered a lettering guide that is used for drafting and making comics. I found out about it after spending a good hour or more drawing three different types of fences in my comic. The art store near me was closed on the day I wanted to get it, so I called my mom to ask if my late father had it in his cabinet since he was an engineer and would use such a tool. She was on her way out and told me that she doesn't remember seeing one. I didn't want to go out, but I had to draw more darn fences, so I drove to the next city over to get one from the art store there.

I love that tool! It's small, and cute, and cheap. I realized that my fence was crooked, so I redrew it with that tool. It was amazing! The next day, my mom called me up to tell me she found the tool. My dad had one after all. Aargh! But she gave it to me anyway. The wheel turns better than mine, so I love them both! It doesn't take up much space either. Sometimes the small things in life make you happier.

It's an ancient tool, too, but I don't remember learning about it in high school drafting class or art school.

Last weekend we squeezed in two birthday celebrations, a dinner with friends, and grocery shopping. We were tired for three days after that. My husband never wants to book our weekend like that again. Yep.





What are you celebrating?

Celebrate The Small Things - April 6, 2018



I updated the last posting regarding Skillshare. I would not recommend signing up. According to the reviews, they are scamming people. It's a shame. It sounds like a great program. Masterclass sounds like a much better program. I would like to take the classes by Judy Blume, James Patterson, R.L. Stine, Steve Martin, Aaron Sorkin, and the screenwriting classes. Currently, it's $180/year for unlimited access to all of the classes. They are adding a lot more classes every year. My husband and one of my best friends both texted me the intro by R.L. Stine almost at the same time the other day. Within two minutes of each other. Weird! Maybe that means I should take that class. Hahaha!

I have been listening to and watching so many tutorials and interviews by cartoonists this week. YouTube is fantastic! I heard talks by Art Spiegelman (Maus) and Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) and interviews with a group of New Yorker cartoonists. I'm inspired! Roz Chast was in that interview so I got to see her speak. I really liked her graphic novel called Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? a memoir about her aging parents. It's funny and a bit sad at the same time. Of course, Maus and Persepolis are amazing graphic novels as well.

Although my kids are a bit too old for me to read books to them at bedtime, I started reading Ready Player One to them because I want them to read the book before we see the movie. During Spring Break last week, I made them watch an 80s movie with me, one per day, so they would get some of the references in the book. Hopefully, they will look back at that week with fond memories.

My older son usually falls asleep within ten minutes, but apparently he liked this book so much that he stayed awake for several chapters. He wants to be a videogame developer when he grows up and he's always inventing games and the worlds within them in his mind. This book has a lot of great concepts for him to think about.

The City worked on the sidewalk in front of our house and removed a big tree root that was pushing it up. This was around December of last year. They damaged our sprinklers which gushed water from empty holes in the ground. I've called them every month since then, but they never came out to fix it. I was stressing out about having a hard time selling our house in the future with the sprinklers like that. I filled out an online form of complaint this week and lo-and-behold, they came out to fix it the next day! Wow! I guess if you call to complain, there's no evidence that you made the complaint so they don't bother to help you. Get your complaints and requests in writing! I'm so happy it's fixed!

I went to a birthday party at a pizza parlor last Thursday. They got me a salad since I can't eat gluten, but there must've been gluten in the dressing because I had a stomach ache for five days. It must've been in my system on the sixth day as well, because I had "brain fog" again while I was at the gym. This comes with gluten intolerance. I had my mental faculties, but I couldn't remember the combinations to both my locks. I've been using one of the locks regularly for over eight years, so I didn't want to have it cut off. This happened to me once before so I knew that I would remember it again in a few days once this "fog" clears.

For some reason, I remembered the combination to my very first lock that I got about 30-40 years ago. I hope it's not early dementia.

Luckily, I was able to call my husband from the gym. He has my combos in his phone. Since the second lock is a replacement to a broken one, he didn't have it, but I was able to get my purse from one locker. I drove home where I found the combo then drove back to the gym to get my gym bag. Whew! Celebrating small miracles!

I was tempted to take a shower at the gym, but I was afraid I would forget the combo again, so I went home. The fog sort of feels like waking up from a deep sleep. Ugh! I hope it doesn't happen again. I have to bring my own dressing next time I'm at a party like that...or just starve.

Have a great weekend!

Celebrate The Small Things - March 23, 2018


I'm celebrating the rainy week. Several days of rain, but it wasn't too cold. The air is nice and fresh now and the scenery is greener. I love it! It's going to be hot next week, though. :o(

By accident, I found out about Skillshare this week. It's an online "school" where you pay as low as $8/month. You can watch tutorial videos on subjects like writing, film, art, photography, design, business, tech, etc. that are taught by experienced people. It's a step up from YouTube when it comes to learning a craft and how to market yourself. Once you pay the premium, you can watch any of the videos posted. There are hundreds of videos. It's like going to art school without the art school price. That's what they are touting. That sounds amazing to me. Plus, if you have a skill you want to teach, you can post your video tutorial there.
(Update on 4.4.18: Do not sign up for Skillshare. I read the reviews and apparently they are charging people for classes they didn't sign up for and it's impossible to cancel unless you cancel your credit card.)

I am also celebrating the show called The Chase. My husband discovered this show last weekend. We watched it for 10 hours straight until we were too tired to stay awake. That's the most I've watched TV in probably a decade. It's a game show that's like Jeopardy on speed.

I got a lot done this week on my webcomic. I drew my title in a vintage-style font, drew my main characters introducing them to the readers, drew and inked four panels, and did research on webhosting. I learned a lot this week about webhosting and marketing. Now I know where I want to post my comics. I need to post them in several places for more traffic until I get a contract.

It's so gratifying seeing my comic panels inked and ready to be colored. I really wanted to add watercolors to them, but realized that it's more practical to do it digitally. It's hard to change with technology. I was hanging on tightly to the idea of drawing and painting my comics by hand traditionally.

I had a drawing done on watercolor paper and was ready to paint it, but thought, what if I don't like the colors and want to change them? I would have to do the drawing and painting all over again. That's time consuming. It was so sad coming to the realization that I had to go digital, but at the same time it was a weight lifted off my shoulders. Now I know what direction I need to go in and I'm ready to take the next step.

There is still a 10% part of me that wants to make the watercolor work, but I'll have to try it with a super short, stand-alone comic.

I hope you had a productive week.

Celebrate The Small Things - Feb. 27, 2018


We finally got rain this week. Yay! It's so nice not to have to water the yard. More rain is coming! I hope it doesn't change.

With all the pollen in the air and getting on my dogs' fur, I was sneezing all day and night. Even after wiping them down before they came in and giving them baths, it didn't stop. I cut the bigger dog's hair and the continuous sneezing stopped. My husband got mad at me for cutting the dog's hair because now it's cold, but this is California cold which is not really that cold technically. I saw some men wearing shorts this morning taking their kids to school. I, personally, was freezing and my fingers were numb in ~52°F/11°C. One lady was wearing flip flops. What?! Why?!

I guess it's a California thing where men wear thick jackets and shorts on a cold day. I guess their legs don't get cold. Interesting.

My dogs are indoors most of the time, so it's not like my dog is suffering. Plus, she gets fleece blankets. She's a princess. Our other dog stinks even after a bath, so he's next.

This week I cooked two dishes my family loved off of recipes from the Yumly app. One was Easy Mixed Vegetable Curry. I actually loved it more than my family, but they didn't complain so I consider it a hit.

I also made mochi which my husband and older son love. It's the first time I made it. My husband was a little mad that dinner was a late because I started cooking the mochi first. I ate a piece before giving it to my family to see if it was good. It was! I tried to hide my smile as I handed them a piece while they were watching TV. My husband took a bite and nodded. My sons were like, "Hm. It's pretty good." I was back in the kitchen and in less than a minute, my husband and older son were looking for more.

My husband said, "You're holding out on me woman! All these years and only NOW you're making mochi!" I had cut them in big pieces, but he started cutting them smaller so they would last longer. He said, "I know you. You're probably not going to make these again, so we have to make them last."

The next day, my son ate five pieces after school. There were only four left. He said, "Now we each get a piece." I said, "But you already ate five! What about Daddy?" Later, I ate the smallest piece. A couple of hours later, he said, "There's a piece missing!" I don't get why they like it so much. I'm going to have to buy a few more boxes of Mochiko to make more batches. Luckily, it's super easy to make. Otherwise, I wouldn't make it anytime soon because I'm not a dessert maker.

I had a good drawing week on my graphic novel and got a few more pages done. I thumbnailed out more stories and did some research online. I'm feeling better about it and more confident that I can launch my webcomics this year. Hopefully I can keep up the pace.

What are you celebrating?

Celebrate The Small Things - Feb. 16, 2018


Today escrow closes and our town home is officially sold! Yay! What a hassle it was to go back and forth with the buyer and management company on extra work they wanted done, paperwork to be signed, info to be gathered, policies to be cancelled, etc. It was a major time waster. We are not making any money off of the sale, unfortunately, but I'm so glad to not have to spend any more time dealing with the place. I'm just sad that the renters had to move because they are great people.

I had so many good ideas for my webcomics this week and was able to get quite a few sketches done.

My son finally showed interest in The Lord of the Rings movies, so we watched the first one together on Sunday. It's one of my favorite movies and I love the book. No one else in the family is interested, but it was nice to share the movie with my son.



My husband got me gifts, chocolates, and flowers for Valentine's Day. I'm sure I got fatter from the chocolates, but they were worth it. Haha!

What are you celebrating?

Celebrate The Small Things - Feb. 2, 2018





It was hard to think of things to celebrate this week. I had some minor irritations like being unsuccessful at fixing my old boom box, someone running through a stop sign right in front of me, and sneezing all week from allergies. It has been unusually hot again (around 85°F/29°C) all week and will be the same next week. This creates more allergens in the air from flowers blooming.

Someone was murdered in a domestic dispute/lovers triangle two streets over from us which opened up a big can of worms about their residence that has upset some people in our neighborhood. They are banding together now to make a complaint to the city. Wow. It has brought to light a problem that most of us did not know was going on.

ANYWAY, moving on to things to celebrate. My family and I were in a game shop that sells board games, model kits, and other types of games that are non-video games. I saw Moomin story cubes that I thought were cute. There was only one pack on the shelf and I thought that if I didn't get them, they wouldn't be there the next time I stepped foot in the shop. So, I bought them. I thought they might help me think up some stories for a webcomic. You just roll the dice and make up a story relating to the images that pop up. You can use one row as the beginning of your story, the second row as your middle, and the third row as the ending to your story. You can move the rows around if you want. You can even use columns instead of rows.
I was thinking to replace the images with characters of my own, but I was curious about these Moomin characters, so I looked them up. Apparently, they are very popular around the world except for here which is the United States. Disney wanted to buy rights, but they refused. They have their own theme park and there is a movie in the works that is supposed to come out next year. Well, this had me intrigued!

An odd thing is, I bought a Moomin postcard several years ago that I just bought because I liked the image. I had no idea it was a Moomin character or what a Moomin even was. It was at Kinokuniya bookstore in Little Tokyo where they sell Japanese books, notebooks, sketchbooks, pencils, and other super cute stuff that Japanese people like. They are not things you can easily find at other stores. The postcard looked Scandinavian. That's why I bought it. I like the Scandinavian style.

When I saw the Moomin cubes, I immediately recognized one of characters as being the one on my postcard.

I wanted to know what the appeal was for the Moomins to be so popular. I found some comic strips online. They had underlying social and perhaps political themes to it. I watched a few episodes of the cartoon online which was geared toward children. Luckily my local library had several Moomin books and a biography on the author, so I checked them out. Here's the first volume:

It's surprising that I've lived all these years without ever hearing about the Moomins. Weird. They have been around for decades. I'm going to continue research on these strange creatures. It's fun.

My graphic novel is still coming along slowly, but I'm happy with the drawings.

I took a break from it briefly this week and completed a short story in thumbnail form using the same characters. I'm happy the way it turned out. It's going to be put up online as a webcomic once I tie down the drawings and add color. I want it to be done very quickly, though, so I can put more time into my graphic novel. A lot of cartoonists have books out with extremely simple drawings, so I'm going to try to whip the drawings up as quickly and simply as possible. I've been classically trained, so it's hard to let drawings go "unfinished" or with that type of look. It's probably equivalent to a person with OCD letting an item on the desk sit crooked. It makes you cringe.

I hope you had things to celebrate this week, great and small.

Celebrate the Small Things - January 19, 2018



I mentioned to my uncle that I could've fixed our TV if I had a soldering iron, but I didn't want to go out and get one. He said he had a bunch of tools he wasn't using, including a soldering iron in his basement and said he would send them to me. Wow! He's trying to clean out his house, so I it works out for both of us. Just in time because our other TV just broke a few days ago as well! I found out how to fix them via YouTube.

I also found out how to fix CDs and DVDs off of YouTube. I tried it on my old portable DVD player and it worked! I was able to listen to my old Cranberries CD on it after hearing that Dolores O'Riordan died. Heartbreak and happiness at the same time.

Now I'm looking around the house for broken electronics that I can bring back to life. Hahaha!

I actually threw out a remote belonging to a broken DVD player that has been sitting around our house for years. Literally within two hours I saw the same remote on a website on how to pair your old remote to your Apple TV. I was looking all over the house for our Apple TV remote and getting angrier by the second because I couldn't find it. I looked up how to get a new one and lo and behold I saw a YouTube video on how to pair an old remote. The remote on the cover image was the same remote we have! Wow! What are the odds of that? I fished the remote out of the trash (which grossed my son out), cleaned it off with rubbing alcohol and paired it to the Apple TV. It worked! It even turned the Apple TV on which you can't do using the digital remote app on your phone.

My husband and I went to the comic shop and he bought me the Lynda Barry book, The Good Times Are Killing Me, which is kind of hard to find unless you order it online. I've read almost all of her books except for that one. I love Lynda Barry!

Last thing to celebrate is my son's interest in cooking. He wanted to make his own style of tacos which he did last night. It's heart-clogging since it includes butter, but it was delicious!  I'm hoping that one of these days he'll do some of the cooking which will free up some of my time.
