Get well soon, Mom!

My mother survived a complicated operation this morning. Her severe illness came completely out of the blue, so I am still in shock. However, it’s looking good that she’ll be able to leave the hospital in a few weeks without further damages to her health. I am also happy that I managed to see her for a few minutes before the operation, and when she was waking up after it. She is the best!

    Wouldn’t want to meet them in a dark alley.

Sintel

Sintel has nothing to do with the largest cpu manufacturer in the world, but is the title of an animated short film by the Blender Foundation. The visuals are really impressive for an open source project with a budget of only €400,000. The touching story is about the girl Sintel as she goes on a quest around the world to find a baby dragon she calls “Scales”. You can watch the movie in HD on YouTube or download it on its website.


Mal and Chad

Mal and Chad: 10/23/2008

Woo and Chad by Stephen McCranieThis Friday the last strip of Mal and Chad (read from the beginning) by Stephen McCranie was put on its website. There are now 232 strips in the archive. Mal and Chad is a newspaper-style comic strip featuring the boy Mal and his talking dog Chad. When the little genius Mal is not busy wooing the love of his life, Megan, he is inventing teleporters (that actually work) and practicing for the school play. Unlike most webcomics, Mal and Chad is a very light-hearted comic which can be read by young children.

Unfortunately, Stephen McCranie will no longer publish new Mal and Chad strips in the foreseeable future since he wants to concentrate on writing graphic novels featuring his young heroes. The first one, “Mal and Chad: The Biggest, Bestest Time Ever!”, is already available for pre-order on Amazon, but will only be released on 12 May 2011. I hope you are of the patient kind.

Stephen also drew the great piece of fanart you can see on the right side.
