Another year

Yesterday (saturday, June 2nd), I celebrated my birthday by going to someone else's birthday party: I share the same day with very talented Khang Le (and 10 years separate us! Eeep!). Hehe, if I'm around next year, I should return Khang the favor.
What can I say- I don't make much of a celebration for myself.  I just take the time to stop, think what I managed to accomplish so far with my life.
Though there are a few things missing...so many friends are married and have a family...I'm still glad of what I've managed to do so far: working in a field I love, a few very nice trips, make wonderful friends.
And I'm making realistic plans as to what I hope to accomplish in the future (so no trips in space for me, dang!). 

On Friday, Avatar-Mom from Avatarspirit.net stopped by the studio with an armful of Appa plushies: I now have an APPA PLUSH DOLL!
He is so *cute*!!! A thousand thanks to her!
He looks good beside my Zhao action figure :D I'll try and post a picture of the two soon.
EDIT: my lovely roommate Phil just got me a Settlers Of Catan game- Thank yoooooooooou! Much love Phil! *heart* Addictive board game if there ever was one :D

What else did I do during my birthday? Why, I doodled of course!
More Zhao water tribe rough pencil ramblings.


Forgive Zhao for being talkative...it's the first time in years he manages to speak about this whole mess with someone he thinks is his ally...
Rough pencils, plus some graytones added 'cause it felt mighty empty.
These will not be posted on DeviantArt- gotta keep something to post about here and not repeat myself all over the web.

(reads Zhao's plans)

Uh-oh. My inner reader squirms with anticipation. ;)

Also, happy birthday!

YOu can almost say that Zhao's plan is doomed for failure from the start- his way of handling the world is different than the ways of the water tribes. Still, he has to try...

Thank you :D

oh god!
happy belated birthday!!!

joyeux anniversaire!!!

(joyeux is one of those words I never know if I'm misspelling... dang)
Jun. 3rd, 2007 09:55 pm (UTC)
Many thanks!
And Joyeux is right. Easier is Bonne Fête, but there's the little accent on the "e" I guess that can be trickly forgotten.

Johane! A very happy birthday to you! I'm always amused that I have a lot of friends who are Geminis. But it's a sign that matches itself well, so that must be why.
Jun. 3rd, 2007 09:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you very very much! *hug*
There's now two other people near me with the same birth day: Khang and my cousin. Good! Finally birthdays I won't forget. I'm like my dad; awful at remembering dates (and noticing stuff, and forgetting plenty of other things, and...oh yeah, way too much like my dad)

De-lurking now, to wish you a very happy birthday! Um, I've been following your work for a while now, and just wanted to say thanks so much for sharing your stuff. I seriously admire your artistry and storytelling, and really enjoy your great sense of humor. Your work is always inspirational. And while I know most people watch you for the fancomics (and of course that's all extremely awesome), I think your other art is fantastic as well.

Much love for the Avatar stuffs! And many happy returns! <3

Thank you very much!
Eh, I'm in a total fancomin mood these days. Hope I'm not boring people with these ramblings. I need them out of my system.

Happy Birthday Johane~! At least we got to see you on your day at Khang's place hehe and do some SETTLIN'. I can't believe Phil got you a copy of the game too! Now when we go to visit we can play together muhaha~ What was that about it being addictive...?
Jun. 3rd, 2007 10:19 pm (UTC)
Settlers addictive? Neverrrr.
It was great to all meet together like this. I kinda feel bad now for being sneaky on my birthday, felt like I was crashing Khang's party (I didn't know it was HIS birthday too until yesterday!).
Jun. 3rd, 2007 10:33 pm (UTC)
happy birthday Johane! We all miss you back here.
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:25 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you!
Missing the Montreal crowd too :)
Jun. 3rd, 2007 10:51 pm (UTC)
And Hoppy Birdy to you!
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:25 am (UTC)
Thank you vedy much!
Jun. 3rd, 2007 11:20 pm (UTC)
Happy (Belated) Birthday!! You deserve awesomeness for bringing awesome to so many fans! And the comic..Zhao is very passionate no? Awesome characterization! And again, thanks for all the awesome and hope your health is much better as well..
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:32 am (UTC)
Thank you very much! Glad you enjoy my mad fan ramblings.
Health definitely decided to go better these past few days. The back pains are mostly gone and all that, so yay! *happy jig*
Jun. 4th, 2007 12:07 am (UTC)
Happy Birthday!
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:30 am (UTC)
Thank you very much!

I can only click on the third one, but I do like the third one.

In other words, while pretty, the first two are not working for me. :(
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:30 am (UTC)
I think I managed to fix them. Should be working now.
Thanks for letting me know about the problems!

oh noez
the links aren't working for me. I can't get a larger image. :(
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:29 am (UTC)
Re: oh noez
Fixed! Should be working now.
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:30 am (UTC)
Happy Birthday!!

Appa plushies... nice!

I love the last panel of the comic; I can't see larger versions of the previous two, however. Much like others commenting on this entry.
Jun. 4th, 2007 01:33 am (UTC)
D'oh! I thought I had managed to fix it. Try again, as they seem to work for me.
Sorry for the inconvenience, if it's still troublesome, I'll work until I find a solution.

Happy Birthday!
Would you believe it's actually MY birthday TODAY!?
Great minds!

Jun. 4th, 2007 02:38 am (UTC)
Wooohoo! It's like a bunch of Flight birthdays in one weekend!
Best wishes to you! Have a great birthday day and all the best! *does happy jig*
Jun. 4th, 2007 02:43 am (UTC)
*faints* Why does he looks so manly in the first page? Prolly the way he's holding that hammer! LOL

Cool present, an Appa plushie! Happy Birthday! :)

I'm squeeing in delight. >D
Jun. 4th, 2007 02:46 am (UTC)
Haha, now I'm getting the urge to always draw Zhao with a hammer in his hands...to make him look manly *heeheehee*
Thank you very much! :D
Jun. 4th, 2007 03:22 am (UTC)
Happy B-day! Though mentally I can't imagine you being more than 12 yrs old XD Hopefully some other birthday you'll get to go to space...

In other news, this Zhaoka comic is kicking so much ass! Totally in love with the expressions on the second of these pages. The council would never be so stupid as to let him go anywhere near the fire nation but maybe that refusal in itself would clue him in to his former identity? Ooh...
Jun. 4th, 2007 05:42 am (UTC)
Mentally 12 years old...oh yeah, even my mom would agree (to her great sadness).

Oh yeah, Zhao's plan is doomed from the start, unfortunately for him. As to his former identity, he is partly deceiving himself...you'll see when I get there, in a few more pages.
