Metroid 30th Anniversary Scrolling Banner
Look's like I am late to the Metroid party. Anyway, Metroid Prime stole my heart once I first played it. It felt that this game was made just for me. After that I played most of the other Metroid titles and enjoyed them just as much. I tried to put all significant characters, aliens and scenes in one picture. It's gotten pretty big. You can scroll down forever. ;-)
Here I Am
This picture has been haunting me lately. This is quite literally from a comic panel, (100 Bullets, vertigo comics) and features Jack Daw, one of the more self-destructive characters in the storyline. "Here I am" is probably the most powerful sentence I ever read. 
Finally after being here for about two years, and a meagre 5 deviations now, I decided to put some text in here...

I am not even sure if anyone will ever read this but it makes me feel a bit better at the turn of the year. Something tells me a lot is going to change for myself and my situation but I am not really sure what it's going to be. Being in the dark about the future is something that can be frustrating sometimes, and on the other hand very exciting.

Not knowing what the future will bring is for me a situation that is more acceptable than live a civil accepted life, and ultimately, a boring one. For me at least, I have a problem sitting still. Nevertheless, I need to find a new job, because I almost finished my old one, and I haven't found a good replacement yet. In case you're wondering; I am a cook...

...Next to being a comic artist of course. But anyone involved in comics in the Netherlands can tell you it ain't paying, except for the lucky few. There's still a lot going on at that front though, as I am halfway writing a comic scenario for a friend of mine and near completing my own 14-page comic, and an exhibition in March, plus the possibility of starting a new study.

So maybe not knowing what the future will bring is a bit of an exaggeration. This time would be a splendid moment to look back at the past ten years, but I rather look at the future. As I spend the last ten years finding out who I am and what I am doing here, I intend to make something of my life for the next ten years and hopefully I can make something out of other persons lives as well.

We'll see. I'll do. I hope anyone reading this, whether it is before or after the new year, will have a splendid 2010!

(Of course I wish everybody not reading this a splendid 2010 as well, but since they're not reading this it is pointless mentioning it. Nevertheless, I still did mention it. :-P)     

Happy new years eve and don't get too fucked up tonight!

Pfew. Don't ask me how, though. Netherlands has a particularly bad history with penalties, but we pulled through. :-)

Well of course, your egg was a nightmare come true. In a good way, of course. :-) Keep it up!

there are 2 eggs ^^
1 with crab's pincer and the second with matches :)

So I noticed. Itīs just that the egg with the pinchers is a combination of two things that I find unsettling. Both the idea that there actually may be a creature in an egg when you crack it open, and crabs and lobsters in general. Well done!
