actually, there are few things that are bothering me about the piece that i don't feel it's actually "complete" but i'm okay with this for now.

Hi all,

Recently I took a course in arc welding and made several sculptures of recycled iron. I had a lot of fun :-)

» Found Comics #300
In yet another desperate cry for attention, I'd like to mention that the 300th episode of "Even in the deepest heart of chaos, a glimmer of order can be found" (aka Found Comics) is currently posted.

The concept is that I use a random image generator to pull six totally random photos off the internet. Then I add captions to make it appear that there's actually a coherent story there. Order out of Chaos, get it? I'll admit that it doesn't always work, but when it does, you'd swear that I chose the photos to go along with the story, but nope, they are random photos. It's kinda like comic strip improv.

I'll also admit that the comic isn't always funny. Sometimes it's weird and/or creepy, but I'm not always going for funny. I'm trying to come up with a story that fits the photos, and sometimes people have creepy photos on the internet (and cats, lots of people take photos of their cat).

Thanks for listening to those of you who listen, and hopefully in 20 weeks I'll have another 100 episodes for people to read through (assuming I don't get any cease & desist letters...).
