d389 Drawing Troll Comic

[161220]

Well folks, it’s a couple years late, but this is, officially, the final Nonsense Wars post. J and I have reached the consensus that we will no longer be updating NW (if that wasn’t obvious already, but hey, now it’s official). All of the posts on the site will be archived at nonsensewars.wordpress.com, and the nonsense-wars.com URL will redirect there before the hosting runs out.

Going forward you can follow J at his Tumblr, and you can follow me on my DeviantART or visit my site, which is intended to be “a loose index of various content I have on the Internet as well as a casual dump of content that doesn’t belong elsewhere”. For various reasons I have moved/copied a handful of NW posts there as well.

Now, about the troll comic: in 2012 (yes, more than four years ago) we tried drawing silly 4komas on a super large sheet of paper, and this was the result. J never got around to posting it due to whatever. But then maybe it’s fitting for the last NW post: it’s a comic, it’s sloppy, and it’s late (but hey, better late than never, right?).

The super large sheet of paper is about 33″ x 27″, so it was difficult to get it into digital form. I think originally J was going to post it as a photo with mouseover areas such that you could see the text, but just this last weekend we tried to see if we could get something better. We tried taking a better photo, and ultimately decided to scan it in small chunks, since the bed of J’s scanner is only about A4. All in all it probably wasn’t worth it: the scans came out really inconsistently and you still can hardly make out the text. As such, I am putting a transcript beneath the comic.

Panel 1,1 (Col, Row):
J: Let’s draw a giant 4-panel comic!
D: Great idea!

Panel 1,2:
*Le drawing*
D: I thought this was the sadness?

Panel 1,3:
J: NOPE.AVI, it’s about drawing a 4-panel comic.
D: But what about the sadness?

Panel 1,4:
J: Can it.
*Shock*
D: This is not funny at all.

Panel 2,1:
*Drawing comics like a boss*
Fuck Yeah.
J: You know, you’ll be sad if that ink and water spill.

Panel 2,2:
J: Put this tray under the cup and ink to avoid sadness.
Trolololololollll
D: Okay
*Drip tray of sadness*

Panel 2,3:
J: Look out, impending sadness!

Panel 2,4:
J: I’m just going to move the sadness to the table.
D: Just shut up already.

So that’s the troll comic. But wait, there’s more! For the tenth anniversary of NW we made a small graphic of D drawing J and J drawing D. This of course didn’t get posted, as it was in September 2014 (we started in September 2014), already several months after my last post, but here it is as well:

And that’s a wrap. Til next time.

Well, I dunno how much more I’m going to post given that J seemingly isn’t anymore, but here’s one more for the road.

d387 Fanless Computing: Intel NUC DC53427HYE and Akasa Newton V

[140321]

I’ve been waiting for this for a really long time, at least since I dabbled with my fanless E6400 so many years ago.

About a year and a half ago, I got my T430 with the intent of using it as a desktop replacement. The idea was that the laptop draws less power, makes less noise, and takes up less space than even an SFF conventional desktop. It also has a built-in UPS (the battery), and you can obviously use it as a laptop in a pinch. This is all fine and dandy, and the T430 has been great so far, but it’s still a stopgap between that SFF conventional desktop and a machine that makes no noise and takes up even less space than a 14″ laptop and dock. Such a machine wasn’t really a practical option when I bought the T430… but it is now!

d386 Lego Miscellany: T18, Trains, Haruka, Kagurazaka, MASS, and Cyber Derp

There’s been a fair bit of Lego stuff going on as of late (though I am trying to keep drawing on the side) so I figure it was time to make a post!

I’ve tried to write this post a couple times now, and it just hasn’t happened. This time I actually have something to write about!

This painting, which doesn’t have a convenient name since it’s original content, is part of a continued effort to better integrate figure and non-figure and the many layers of background to foreground, all of which has been a perpetual problem with no clear solution. This painting is also somewhat of a return to my roots in that even though the figures are in the foreground, the focus in effort is really on the non-figures in the background, and I think that is a first for a painting with both in it.
