Do Busy Bees Fly...

Okay, so it's a little crazy how much you can do in just a few days.

I wanted to posted something from all the past days that have past by since my last post, but I am going to have to sum things up a little. You get busy living or you get busy dying as they say. And let me just say to everyone, take every chance life gives you. I know it's a simple philosophy but make the most of your time and have as much fun as you can.

Last Saturday:

A big thanks to everyone who came out and to Gauntlet Comics for having us at the store. If you missed Artist Day, we will back in the summer, so bring your sketch covers and your ideas and we will do it up for you. A lot of drawing was done by all of us at Spent Pencils and it was a full house of talent from the entire crew. I myself got to work on two different covers, a Thor cover with the current villain, the Godkiller. A great story so far by the way, so if you're looking for a great fantasy based comic, check out Marvel Now's Thor, an awesome read. I also did an Avengers cover, with goat Avengers. Yup, goat Avengers. I got to say it was a lot of fun to work on that cover, I may have to do one as well later on. So stayed tuned if you want your own goat sketch cover.

I also sold a few original sketches and my very first sketch cover from Uncanny Avengers. Again, thank you to all the amazing staff at Gauntlet Comics and all the fans who came out to enjoy in the art celebration. I can't wait to come back, a lot of love from Orangeville.

And of course, what kind of Spent Pencils get together wouldn't be complete without a trip to Denny's.

Last Sunday: Wrestlemania baby!

Now I don't know about you, but I had a blast watching this years Wrestlemania. And yes, you could be nit picky about some matches and outcomes, but on my end of the woods, I had a blast watching and enjoying the show with friends. A whole lot of snacks and food made sure we didn't go hungry during the show, and more then enough drinks to boot.

As I predicted earlier, the match of the night was without a doubt the Undertaker and CM Punk. But they also had the best entrances this year, with my vote to CM Punk for entrance of the night, with Living Colour playing him in. Another quick note, I felt that both main event sequels redeemed themselves from their first match ups. An awesome good time, I can't wait for next year.

Last Night:

It's not everyday that you get the opportunity to go see one of the greatest rock acts today out of the blue. But that's exactly what happened last night when I got the chance to go see Muse with three friends, with a big thanks to my big SP brother, I can't thank you enough.

I honestly didn't know what to expect from this show, I've heard plenty of different tunes from them but I didn't know how they would play live. Man, these guys were amazing! My one and only complaint was that I wanted the show to be longer. I never thought I would get the chance to see Muse play live, but when they come back to Toronto, I definitely want to go back and see them. And I highly suggest you go see them as well.

Well that's pretty much sums up everything so far, not to mention going to work, catching up with friends and working late on my projects with the SP family. Needless to say it's been pretty hard to find the time to sit down and blog, but when I can I will. So take note and get moving, we got to make the most of the time we have here and now. Get living.

Dave can't believe it's past 2 AM and everyone is still up. :P
