There are times when the imagination kicks in and it becomes so real that it becomes almost like a mini vision of some sort. This is one of those moments when I saw the Korean pear sitting on the counter, I saw very clearly the R2D2 sitting there. About a month ago right after Ira was born, I thought to myself. I have to make an R2D2 with the Korean melon. Life went on, etc etc, when I had time, there was no melon, when I had the melon there was no time. Today however, I had both the melon and time and also wife backup. Thank you God!
So here it is. Some pictures of progress and the unfinished final.
Yes, I know. Where are the legs etc etc. I didn’t have time to finish. Maybe this will keep till the next time all the circumstances align together again.
My wife and I talked about how if this works out I can do a pumpkin version. Maybe?
Wow. I now conclude the 30 day trial without getting to paint on the 30th day.
I sat down on my computer to open Corel X3 and got the following screen. I took a screenshot of it so that I’ll have a record of my last day.
At 11:32 PM, just before the next day. Notice that the countdown on the top right says 1 Days Left. So thinking that I could proceed, click the close button. The whole program disappears off my launch bar on the bottom. I search for the program with spotlight and open it again to get the following screen.
At 11:34 PM, I have 0 Days left. I must have passed the threshold for the 30 days mark by hours or even minutes. I would like to see if Corel would be able to explain this one to me.
I’m so glad that I did two drawings yesterday. This will conclude my 30 days of drawing with no drawing on the 30th day, just a screenshot of the 0 days. My hacker side is itching to hack it so that I can get one more painting that I should get.
If you see another painting, you know what happened.
Being the second to last day makes me want to do one more:
Microsoft Purchased MineCraft. Gadgets loves to use as much technology as possible. Here he is playing Minecraft with the Kinect Sensor while Systemz talks some sense into him.

These are the characters of my experimental web comics that started . . . in the year 2006. It was called “Untitled Life Journey“. That is eight years back. My latest entry to this comic was in 2012. I really miss these characters. It’s like seeing old friends again. I desire to start a new series called “Unlimited Life Journeys”. You will notice that the characters have changed a little bit. This picture is in this form for both artistic purposes and also as a tribute to the experimental & rawness of the original comic. It was one of the things I wanted to do before this trial ended.
