A dwarf standing on the shoulders of a giant may see farther than a giant himself.

Hello all. I've officially recovered from my plague and I feel much better now. My throat is still sore but that comes more from belting out Irish drinking songs at the pub Saturday night than anything else. Allison is doing much better now. Her doctors think that one more bout of treatment will cause her cancer to go into full remission. And this is after they originally said she didn't have a chance. Thankfully, unlike the doctors, we never gave up.

Anyway, this is a character design of my latest D&D guy. He's a big, fat dwarven cleric. I'll probably go back and add more detail as the character fleshes out but for now this is his basic form. I'm pretty happy with the colors on this one. And his long johns crack me up. Those were a total accident (which sometimes turn out the best.)

Civilization is unbearable, but it is less unbearable at the top.

Ugh. I hate being sick. I've had the seven plagues of Egypt trapped inside my skull for the last two weeks and it's getting really old. This cold has survived an entire bottle of NyQuil and a bottle and a half of Robitussin. It's the adamantium Energizer Bunny of viruses. Ugh.

Allison's surgery went alright. Not as well as we'd hoped but not bad either. She's going back in for a second round this Friday. Her chances are better this time and we're hoping it'll kill the cancer for good. I'll still be holding my breath the entire time.

Anyway, this is a logo I did about a year ago that was based on the California flag. It's been a while since I've looked at this logo (and I just recently got permission to post it) but it still holds up pretty well. I've always liked the distressed look.

Side Note: I can't believe it's been five years since 9/11. I can't believe how much has changed (for better or worse) and how much has stayed the same. Mind boggling.
