Video of Fort Ord when it closed. There are some interesting shots of it still in operation. The first scene is of one of the guards who used to check the cars for the proper military tags that would allow you on base.

If you didn’t have those tags, you’d have to turn around. And they actually did it. Imjin by Marina used to be one of those spots with the little hut and a guard. It was in that spot with the strange turn outs.

ITS MY SCHOOL!!!  

Isn’t it strange to go to school at an old abandoned military base? #WeAreAwesome

I went there too. It was always so creepy over there by the World Theater before they did the renovations a few years ago that turned the street into a pedestrian paradise.

This week’s update for Comics Bulletin is in celebration of my first year in comics. There will be an article attached after the weekend delving in my experiences, thrills and chills starting out, but for now - ART!
I’m incredibly lucky for what I’ve gotten to do in the last twelve months, and I thank each and every one of you for being a part of it. It’s humbling. Always humbling. It stuns me how little time as passed and how many people have tuned in. Here’s to 2012!

I love this! A lot of times, the artists I know spend time waffling, unsure if they should submit, should publish, should do this thing over here. Is it worth it? What if you fail? What if no one looks? What if people do look? What if it’s not good enough?
In the end, you’ll never know unless you try. Maybe you’ll fail, but it’s better to fail than to never try at all.

Sayaka Ganz says she was inspired by Japanese Shinto beliefs that all objects have spirits and those that are thrown out “weep at night inside the trash bin.” With this vivid image in her mind, she began collecting discarded materials — kitchen utensils, sunglasses, appliances, toys, etc. — and upcycling them into works of art. When creating her unique sculptures, Ganz sorts her objects into color groups, constructs a wire frame, and then meticulously attaches every object to the frame until she creates the shape she’s envisioned, which is typically an animal. This one is called “Emergence.”14 artists with a green message


Wow! That’s beautiful. Also, I didn’t know that was a Shinto belief. I actually feel objects have spirit to them too. It’s part of why it’s so hard to throw them out.

haha, awesome! I’m playing this now, but on the 3DS. The 3DS aspect is actually really well done and not as much a strain as I thought it’d be. Still, it’s a good idea to turn off the 3D in boss battles.

This is one for Nina, taken while driving up I-75 through Detroit.


Awesome! Thank you Laura, haha. I love that abandoned buildings might remind you of me.
Can we start that as a thing? Would others like to submit pictures of abandoned buildings from around your area? I also love to hear stories associated with the buildings if you know it.
Post it to your tumblr, and you can submit the link here, if anyone is game. I never get anything like this going. I’d also like to put the link to your tumblr on the Facebook fanpage for the book.

It’s here. Time for small nanobots. The way they’re controlled? Magnetic fields. Awesome.
