I had a flying dream!

I'm not sure why I had it, but it's been years since my last one so it was very much welcome. I was coming home from school (!?) back home in Lagos, when a car full of kids pulled up in front of me, instead of going round the car I just sort of pushed off the ground into the air. It didn't last long, and my mum suddenly showed up and asked if I could do it again and I did. I suppose it was more of a floating dream than a flying dream.

That was breakfast yesterday. For the most part it was great except there was definitely something very wrong with the nectarine, which was a lot harder than I think it should have been and tasted like cardboard. I threw it out.

It begins... again.

So the debate was fairly boring. After what seems like an eternity (3 or 4 years I think), some new Trek stuff! Weird cus Shof and I were just talking about this the other day.

Chekov, Kirk, Scotty, Bones, Sulu and Uhura from left to right. *squeals!*

The new bridge of the USS Enterprise.

That is not the Enterprise, it's the USS Kelvin being blasted to bits. No, I've never heard of the Kelvin either.

Nero, the movie's good guy.

Kirk. Again.

Spock, explaining to Kirk that he doesn't like being made fun of.

Slow going.

Not that exciting to look at yet. Once I get done with the flats I'll add some texture then take it into Painter to add volume.

From the desk of Andrew Ryan...

How creepy is that? It's the first part of an extremely cool video game called Bioshock.

Sean, you'd like this game. Don't think it's on the Mac though.

I made this!

Got into a very limited beta this weekend for an upcoming game called LittleBigPlanet, so when I should have been starting version 2.0 of Toba's village, I was busy designing this:

The game is a ridiculous amount of fun, kept me laughing all the time I was making the level, the cool thing is that once you've made the level you can upload it and other people who have the game can try out your level and leave some feedback, folks seem to be enjoying it quite a bit. Work on Toba's Village shall continue this weekend though!

Happy Independence Day!

For those that don't know, and those that likely forgot (like my bro and sis), today, the 1st of October happens to be Nigerian Independence Day.

If I were at home I'd mandate a celebration with lots of suya and a little beer, possibly even illegal and dangerous fireworks. As it is I'll have to make do with some orange juice and a few salted almonds.

Here's to many more, and better times ahead.

How awesome am I? So awesome.

'Kay, so I'm stopping work on this first painting of Toba's village, it's taking far too long, and frankly I've learned a couple of things working on this in the early stages that I want to implement on something else. There were going to be at least two more layers of work on it to finish it up, but... eh.

I'm moving on to this drawing, which I much prefer, once again the pencils were done by Shof and the inks by yours truly (another Collaborative Coker Creation!):

Maybe this time I'll actually have a color palette decided upon before I decide to go whole hog on it! As usual I'll be documenting my progress step by step.

Oh yeah, and why am I so awesome? Simple, because I'm now an uncle, that's right, after nine months of hard work, and six (?) years of prep work gettin' those two together, I finally did it, ME!

Can't believe there's three of you. Little Lucy, I like that.
