My Train Wheels Moved? | From the Train 190913



I was able to actually get some information on what was happening with the Train today.

Alright, so I've said in the comic that it's fully tilted up and it is. And I noticed today if you look over at the back that's where the wheels used to be. So I'm like... I stop by today and I'm talking to the guy and I'm like, How? What happened? How is... they're in the middle now?

I guess they can slide the wheels on it?

So I guess what they can do is they tilted it up on pistons and they've got... Like a beam? I don't know. They got something propping it up and they were able to slide the wheels over. I didn't know you could do that on a train. So that was kind of interesting.

They're digging under it.

And over by the back, they are digging. So they had to take even more track away which is why they had to move the wheels. So now I really can't go in there there's track missing and it's at an incline. So that was interesting.

The guy I talked to kept asking if I needed to get on there and I'm like, Jesus no! I don't need it to fall. But they did move it at least.

And they got a bunch of wiring happening and it looks like they're getting the plumbing underneath. I see tubes under there. So they're gonna be able to hook up the sewage soon.

Might not be until October now.

But the guy that I talked to, he said that it really does look like it's not gonna be till October now that they're gonna be done.

Oh, and do I need a haircut? I was riding my bike before shooting this. Seriously, do I need a haircut? I'm not entirely sure.

Anyway, so yeah that's... I'm still not in there.

A quick peek behind-the-scenes of a new webcomic series. Coming soon!

I've recently paused my usual diary comic to dedicate my attention to an exciting new project—a fiction webcomic series featuring two characters that may be familiar to my long-time followers.  These characters, Bobert and the Monster have made appearances on my website before , and now they're taking center stage.  I'm working diligently with the hope of launching the series shortly.  In the meantime, I'd like to share this behind-the-scenes video of the drawing process for one of the upcoming pages.  Stay tuned for more updates as I bring this creative vision to life.

New song! Variation witch

Keeping up with my plan to release new music every month.  This time around I venture into the punk blues realm. Sort of a mixture of The Black Keys and The Eels . This is a song called "Variation witch" by my band Lorenzo's Music .  The cover art is actually an antique top that I have in my collection. What I liked about it was the striped disc kind of like something in a Tim Burton film.

Working on a new comic

Drawing tablet screenshot I've been working on a new comic book idea. These are some screenshots of a few panels of a comic I'm drawing on my tablet. It's actually based on some characters I've had for a while called Bobert and the Monster . I don't even really remember how I came up with these characters themselves but the concept is:  It's a world made of monsters and humans are the ones that haunt and terrorize them. Specifically, Bobert the human haunts and plays tricks on the main character who is just called "Monster".  When I first started drawing them years ago they were just one-page gag comic strips. I was inspired to draw these characters based on those in-between comic stories I read in those old Gold Key and Dell comics from the 60s and 70s. Those comics would feature a main character like Yogi Bear or Huckleberry Hound . Then there were random one-page stories with a different character in the book to fill it out.  I had drawn a few o

Artwork for the original Candy Land game by Milton Bradley from 1955.

I have a vintage Candy Land game from 1955 by Milton Bradley and I was about to sell it so I thought I would add it to my personal art history course concept I've been doing . I'm going to try and see if I can find out how this game was created, designed and why? Here is what I found out about this game https://candy-land.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land_Wiki Candy Land is a board game about children exploring a world made out of candy and other sweets that originally came out in 1949. In every version of the game, there are a group of children that go through Candy Land. In the earliest versions of the game, it was a realistically drawn boy and girl. Drawing of the Candy Land kids I did on my phone ☝ https://board-games-galore.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land The game was designed in 1948 by Eleanor Abbott , while she was recovering from polio in San Diego, California. It's rumored that Eleanor also did the original artwork but I didn't find anything that
