It’s a Killculator Christmas!

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Merry Christmas, to everybody that celebrates it and happy holidays to everyone else!  Hope you all had a great holiday.  I wanted to share one of the best gifts I got for Christmas.  My sister made a plush version of her favorite monster from the 142 Monsters series.  You can see a picture of it below.  (You can view the 142 Monsters by clicking on the portfolio link, or going through older blog posts to see the process shots.)

I’m hopeful that she’ll be able to make more and maybe we’ll put them in the store soon.  All best, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I did this for a friend of mine a couple months back.  Unfortunately, some of the darker colors were lost in the scan.  Please to enjoy.

Good ol’ days, part 4

Sometimes you sit for what seems like hours in a broken subway with wet pants after being knocked over by the wind into an icy puddle.

It’s a fact of life.

Good ol’ days, part 3

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Saw a bit of the NBC Christmas Show on TV last night—I felt bad for the people there, it looked miserable and rainy.  But it reminded me of a trip we took to Rockefeller Center once specifically to go ice-skating.  It didn’t work out the way we’d planned.

It was hilarious.

Good ol’ days, part 2

For 2 weeks in February 2005, Central Park was covered in giant orange-fabric gates by the artist-couple Christo and Jean-Claude (who I was sorry to see recently passed away).  Seeing the gates on the news, it didn’t look that impressive and I didn’t know if it would be worth the time to go to central park on a rare day off.  Well, we did go the last weekend the gates were up and, honestly, it was something really special.  I loved walking through the park, under these huge gates and watching everyone react to this totally foreign environment.  I’m really glad we went to see it.

Good ol’ days, part 1

My lovely wife and I met in law school eight years ago and we just recently celebrated our 4th anniversary.  As part of my gift, I gave her a picture book about us and I thought I’d post a few of the pictures.

When studying for the bar exam, one must empty one’s brain of all useful information and replace it with obscure legal doctrines and totally rare exceptions to generally accepted legal principles.  And you’ll need coffee; lots and lots of coffee.  It leaves you with a mushy brain and terrible social skills and the picture is what we looked like towards the end.
