The Real Post #99: Octopus Barista

Jumping Jehoshaphat! I've been sitting on this one for quite awhile. I was looking through some piles of loose sketches and what not, when lo and behold I found this one. It's dated 2007, and I don't recall why I never posted it. I probably wasn't pleased with it at the time. There really isn't a deep story behind the inspiration, but I think it was simply an image that came into my head one day in a super busy coffee shop.

Just a reminder that this will be the last post before the big ol' milestone 100th post. I've got a couple of projects going right now, so it may take a while, because the idea I have in mind for it will be a lot more involved than a typical post. I'm just sayin'.

See you soon.

Post # 100? . . . Not so fast, Monty!

Jeepers! Here I was all set to celebrate my 100th blog post on A Walk on the Wiles Side, but fortunately I decided to double check my math, in other words, I seem to be a few posts short. The funny thing about Blogger is that it counts the drafts as actual posts, even though they have ever been published. I'm actually okay with this situation because it offers me a chance to do something spectacular in the near future, although I'm not ready to divulge the details yet. Incidentally, I have a couple of projects to get done this week, and my motto is: Paying gigs come first. In the meantime this is the old version of the 100th post, but it is actually only post #98, so it kind of loses its luster. Anyway, I'll see you soon for the real post #100.
