"I spent two weeks building my daughter a rocket ship out of cardboard boxes. Then when I finally finished, she started crying because it wouldn’t fly."

There’s a real message in here about the vanishing resiliency of our hopes and dreams.

Teacher training. Last day. Me now.

More finger doodlin’ during teacher training. I have zero color-sense, especially when it comes to evoking light sources. I’ve been doing these in Sketchbook Pro, which limits me to a few layers for larger pictures. Anyone have a better program to use on my IPad?

I haven’t posted a sketch since I started my new job. Weeks off became nine months. Well, I just finished my first year of teaching, and I need to get back to making things. Ironically, I’ve immediately gone into two weeks of teacher training sessions, so I’m not actually done with work, but I’m bored out of my mind, so here’s a quick doodle of a happy little savage Pygmy of some kind. I ended up being pretty happy with this, considering that I sketched it without my stylus, furtively hunched beneath my desk.

More to come.

"What’s the most frightened you’ve ever been?" “Elementary school.” “Why’s that?” “Nuns.”

From the always indispensable ‘Humans of New York’ comes my favorite thing of all the times.

Technical Difficulties

It absolutely kills me to do this, but I need to put Baoke Bloviates on hiatus for a while. Getting this thing up and running and continuing to post was a huge source of pride for me, and having to interrupt it feels like failure.

However, I just started in a new teaching position, and it’s currently chewing through my time to the tune of about seventy-hours a week. With my other responsibilities to the household, I just don’t currently have the time to put out a quality of product that I’m comfortable with.

I’m working hard to get ahead at the job, and with some effort I WILL return to posting, sooner rather than later. This is just a small hiccup.

I can’t tell you how forward I was looking to one year of uninterrupted posting. My heart hates this.

Fall down. Get back up. Repeat.

"The dude who came from motherf***ing mars", a tribute to Plan 9 from outer space by Aurélien Fernandez

Stylish, immediately translatable, and once again: love the colors. Something to work towards.

BILL WATTERSON ‘A cartoonist’s advice’

This is extraordinary. I’m going to work on living this advice today.

It also pushed my daddy-daughter button pretty hard.
