Viruses are cooler when they spawn zombie hordes

It's a good thing I uploaded that image last night; it was the last thing to be uploaded before my computer died.

It's right back up and running again, obviously. The death was largely of my own making, and through a brilliant stroke of luck I had picked up an external hard drive a couple of weeks ago on a whim and backed up 99.5% of the files on my computer, so very little was lost.

The utterly daft part comes in when the system recovery program tells me that none of my data will be lost, only drivers, settings, etc. OK, I can live with that. And all of the data on my hard drive was safe - except for the My Documents folder. Why on Earth would that be the only folder to get wiped? It seems like it would be the folder least in need of getting erased; it's just pictures and music and the like. Again, I'm pretty lucky in that I only lost a couple weeks of work to the wipe, but still.

Man, it's been a month since I updated this blog. Hopefully I'm getting out of this funk I've been in.

I had started working on a Flash portfolio, but I put that on hold because it was looking like I might have been able to start working a couple weeks ago. Still haven't heard back, and it's been long enough that I'm back to work on a couple projects I've had on the back burner.

Here's a character from one of them. It's an ambitious project, quite possibly too ambitious, and he's a long ways from finalized. The first portrait and the full-scale drawing are a bit too young for what I was thinking.
