1145 YMMV.


Tonight is homework night. The teen has a huge mound of it and I am cartooning and helping simultaneously. I’m not sure which thing is suffering more. We started with word maps, then moved on to completing sentences. Now it’s choosing antonyms. After that there’s science and math.


Anyway… Today I picked up Skylanders Swap Force, which pretty much kills out any other purchases for a month. I haven’t played it yet, but I pre ordered the dark version from Gamestop so I had to pick it up. The figures look cool at least. The magnets that hold the Swap Force guys together are strong enough to feel just right. I don’t know why I didn’t expect them to have magnets, but it makes perfect sense now. They had a ton of other figures, but I couldn’t get them all. Because that would be insane. Less insane than getting the Disney equivalent figures, but insane none the less. My set came with a free lightcore Hex as a preorder bonus, and I did get Star Strike and Roller Brawl because they seemed cool.

I need to get back to helping but, as I said on my tumblr, if anyone has any suggestions for Halloween costume warmup sketches I’m open to them. The post is here if you want to see the Thomas as Kamina I did. (and didn’t notice it in the twitter feed…)
