Geeky quickfire!

Questions from formspring.me: Which Ninja turtle do you prefer? Donatello, of course! How could the scientist not be my favorite? I’d always choose him in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles video game for NES. I still remember how accomplished my friend and I felt if we made it to the skateboard level (we were in …

Omg Harry Potter

I’m off to go stand in line with my friends for the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Gleeeeee!

In honor of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince…

Here’s some old artwork I did in 2005, when I had just finished reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I call it the Half-Blood Prince of All Cosmos (click here for larger version on deviantART): Oh the good ol’ days of coloring things with a mouse. A billion points to anyone geeky enough to …
