Original Hippocratic Oath, translated into English:

“ I swear by Apollo, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath.

To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art.

I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.

I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art.

In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves.
All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal.

If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my lot.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. ~Mark Twain

I just finished "SCUD: The whole Shebang! TPB." I fell i love with this book back when I was in comic school.

It broke my heart when Rob Schrab prematurely ended the series before it's climatic closing story arc had ended in Scud #20.

Rob went to work on other projects like the amazing Robot Bastard!, along with Heat Vision and Jack (that starred Owen Wilson and Jack Black), and writing and directing The Sarah Silverman Show.

But during the writers strike Rob had a bunch of time on his hands, so he decided to finish Scud...and it was wonderful!

But when I was reading it I came across a panel with Scud dressed like "The Tenth Doctor." It was to awesome to be true, but there it was. I knew this page would have to become my desktop image!

So here is how I did it.

Here I scanned in the art at 300 dpi.
scud_0 by you.

I adjusted the contrast, levels, and curves in Photoshop. I also rotated the image slightly so it doesn't look like look like he's going to fall off the page.
scud_stage_1 by you.

Next I added colour, and added colour to the pin stripes on the suit.
scud_stage_2 by you.

To make Scud really pop out I grayed out the background.
scud_stage_3 by you.

I added the logo and then Ta-Da! A finished desktop to be proud of!
scud_stage_4_fin by you.

Feel free to download this desktop for you own personal use! Here!
Scud of course is the propert of Rob Schrab. This artwork is only an homage to his awesomeness, so please don't sue me.

070_Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

The Pevensie Children.

"Once a king or queen in Narnia, always a king or queen. Bear it well, Sons of Adam! Bear it well, Daughters of Eve!"


“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”

The credit belongs to the man in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs, and who comes up short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause. The man who at best knows the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, fails while daring greatly, so that his place will never be with those cold timid souls who never knew victory or defeat."

Classic DrawsumthinCool: 004_Skomolii

Originally uploaded by doubledorkmeter
Skomolii is the brain child of Jeff Elden. A deadly vegetable grown by the evil Dr. Cheese. In most cases is an irresistible veggie adored by children. But unless you eat them every day you will die in a gruesome and bizarre manner.

But in some cases they like in the cinema classic "Gremlins 2". There are genetic varieties that would appear as soon as they have properly ripened.

In this case K10 came home from a hard day of work. She managed to beat Jeff home ad decided to relax and read her book for awhile and then to make dinner. She had just found a Skomolli lasagna recipe that she was dying to try out.

She heard a noise from the kitchen. She looked down at the floor and both cats where curled around her feet. She cautiously got to her feet and made her way o the kitchen doorway. She could see the block of knives of the counter and pulled the one that was closest to her.

Then she saw it.

Something moved on the counter. Was it a mouse? Or a Rat?

No. It was green. It was the Skomolii that she and Jeff had just picked up last night. It had budded small black eyes on stalks, crab like claws, and three segmented insect like legs.

"Well. It looks like dinner is going to be late." K10 whispered to herself.
