Billy Jack.

His name is Billy Jack. Get back! Or he will attack.

Okay, here's the explanation... Relaxed Muscle is Jarvis Cocker's (Pulp frontman) side project. He has an alter-ego named Darren Spooner that dresses up like a skeleton all the time. "Billy Jack" is my favorite Relaxed Muscle song, mainly because the super-crappy video for it features skeleton-man Spooner as a cowboy. Come on! Tales of vengeful skeleton cowboys! A girl can't ask for much more.

The first week of classes wasn't so bad. There was big homework in every course but all of them seem pretty fun. For example, I have to draw my favorite monster for Illustration II and, after a long time mulling over the pros and cons of drawing a sexy Medusa or Bride of Frankenstein, I decided to go in a completely different direction and depict Krampus, St. Nick's naughty buddy. You may know him from the Venture Bros. Christmas Special. I like the sketches so far, so let's hope that I don't end up hating the final piece so much that I don't post it here.
