Rest in peace, my Captain...

Robin Williams was more than a comedian and actor, he was a legend and an inspiration to the rest of the world. He was our muse and our escape. He was our Captain and our friend. He inspired us to seize the day and taught us that to live would be a great adventure. 
Rest in peace, my Captain...
This is Ray signing out. nanu nanu...

Share your artistic side and make the world more beautiful

Practice makes perfect

When it comes to art, there are only three rules: practice, practice, practice.
Find something to draw and draw it. Compare your work to the visual reference, and keep editing it until you like what you see. Simple right?
You can find a picture of something and draw that or look at something and draw that. I chose to practice drawing familiar and popular characters so that people could compare my work to the original artists. The finished product in many cases has been good. Sometimes not so good, but if it does not work at all, just start over. I have gotten a lot of compliments from friends and coworkers because of the popular characters and they make a good portfolio too.
The main thing in drawing is to keep drawing. Practice makes perfect, and there are lots of books out there you can study and even articles online too. Keep working on your portfolio and adding to it every chance you get. Keep creating new masterpieces to include and when you finish one, start another. Art comes from the heart and soul of the artist. It is a part of you and needs to be shared with the rest of the world.
Art makes the world more beautiful and bearable. So share it and enjoy the fruits of your labor. We cannot take it with us,but we can leave a great portfolio behind when we go.
Practice, Practice, :Practice

Whatever happened to Jessica Rabbit?

"You don't know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do."


Jessica Rabbit was a shining star in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" And after numerous books and merchandising deals. The question crossed my mind. Whatever happened to Jessica Rabbit?
Jessica is still headlining in Toon Town, and still does the occasional spot in Roger's toons. But a lovely and talented star like Jessica should be huge by now.
Reporters asked her about her marriage to her "Hunny Bunny" Roger Rabbit, and she said, "I love him more than any woman's ever loved a rabbit."
When asked about rumors that she had played patty cake with some producers to get to the top, Jessica replied, "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way. You don't know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do."
We asked Jessica about the car crash Roger had last week, and she told us, "My honey bunny was never very good behind the wheel."
"Better lover than a driver, huh?"
"You'd better believe it, buster," she said.
Those of you die hard fans can catch Jessica on the stage at Toon Town's infamous Supper Club on Tuesdays and Wednesday's and at the House of Mouse on Saturdays.
