Jeffkillian.com initially started as a Geocities website when I was in 6th grade. Over the years, it has slowly evolved into a place where I can practice and become familiar with web development as it progresses. I started out coding with Microsoft Frontpage, then moved to Dreamweaver. Initially, there was very little coding, and it was all WYSIWYG. However, as I learned more, I could make it more interactive.


I incorporate drawings and blog posts to keep those that are interested updated. Through the evolution of the website, I was forced to learn HTML, PHP, CSS, XML, jQuery, javascript, and the handling of MySQL Databases. I've put online some code samples.

Be Forever Remembered
New Drawing. You will probably have to scroll down to see it all.
It is Titled: Forever Remembered at Starbucks Last Saturday
January 23rd Update
The normal drawing routine is still going, and I have two comics that need to be scanned in and uploaded. I tend to make updates when I am bored (which is usually when I don't have a lot going on in my life). Because this week is the beginning of a new semester, I have a new class, Psychology, and am getting accustomed to the workload and the teacher. So far (1 day) it is going pretty well.

This Friday I am going to go to PILLOWS and perform some things that I practiced yesterday with a friend. We always say that we are going to do things but then for some reason or another they fall through and we only end up doing one or two songs/skits instead of the four or five we had planned. I'll tell you how that turned out in a later post. Hopefully I will have time to go out and buy an e-string for my acoustic guitar, or else I will have to take my dad's guitar. That is not to say there is anything wrong with my dad's guitar, it's just my guitar is easier to play. The next morning after PILLOWS I have a Model United Nations preparation program from early in the morning until about 3. I did it last year, and we basically practice public speaking and whatnot.

Random Afterthought: Guessing should never be required when trying to complete a Sudoku. Guessing requires little skill, and it turns the Sudoku into a game of chance.
Normal Drawing Routine
Now that the scanner is fixed the drawings will continue to be posted randomly throughout the week.

I had a few ideas for that drawing, and finally settled on the one you see. I was going to do something with a "double-functioning mobius strip" (a piece of paper) but decided against it.
Scanner Broken
I had the drawing on the scanner glass and had pushed scan, when the display read "No Connection to Computer." As soon as I can figure out the scanning problem, I will correct it and then upload the drawings that are remaining in the "queue." I have a four day weekend coming up and will get right to fixing the scanner when that comes. I also have finals tomorrow. Cripes.

There was a spelling error in my last post. See if you can find it.
I am going to be in a play on Friday and Saturday. You should probably come and see it.

I found a physics simulation game online, here. I enjoy making seesaws with it.

# I found these images of somebody who, as far as I can tell, has the a skill that nobody will ever need, except to make these photographs.

 

So like I said, when the weekend comes, I will fix the scanner and upload more drawings. Hold it in until then.

Updato Stacato
Hey. There has been a lack of updates in the past five days. I have no excuse*. However, the good news is that I have some drawings that are almost completed and will soon be put up. But, as you can clearly see, there is no drawing today. Sorry. Check back in a couple days, there should be one up by then. *Actually I do have an excuse. I was introduced to a game called Dolphin Olympics 2 and I have been playing it over and over again. It's one of those games were the points have exponential growth, and I can't seem to stay away from it. My highest score as of this post is about 162 million, and I can't get any higher yet, although the top players have gotten over 2 billion points.

I've finished another book, Obasan, since I last posted. It was sort of good but it dragged on a little bit towards the end. I am glad that I can move on.
New Comic and Productivity
I entered myself into the MMC Contest NO. 23: "Sumwhat Sodoku" yesterday, so hopefully I will win. I faxed the answer in, but I have some doubt as to whether or not the fax was actually received. Seeing as you are most likely procrastinating right now, I drew a comic dealing with procrastination:

I was going to make it facebook or something, but not everyone uses facebook.
Dressy Casual Update
As you can see I have been playing around with the table widths for the site and hopefully it is better now. You shouldn't have to side scroll in order to read all of the updates.

Winter break is coming to a close tonight, and this signifies that I will be going back to school tomorrow morning.

On the bright side, I have been making a lot of drawings in my new sketchbook, and hopefully they will go to the site sometime. I should have a new drawing up either on Monday or Tuesday. I've got a drawing in front of me that I should be finished up with soon.

Steps to making a drawing
Step 1:Come up with an idea
Step 2:Find out some way to portray that idea on part of a very thin, white tree
Step 3:Draw the idea using pencil
Step 4:Retrace using pen
Step 5:Scan to computer
Step 6:Resize/Photoshop all dirty marks out
Step 7:Post online!

And that is how I do it. The hardest part is resizing and taking out all those dirty little graphite smudges.
EDIT: Sorry that the site looked funny for the past couple hours. I couldn't change it for some reason, but figured out the problem and now it is resolved.
The Hands With Which I Draw
Break is coming to a close which is dissapointing.
New drawings will keep coming at random times throughout days, so be prepared for that.

This is one of those times. Click the image to expand. I am still working on the php comments system, and am having some trouble. If you know some php and would like to help, feel free to email me.

I draw with my right hand, which is the same hand I write with. However, I throw a baseball with my left hand. Strangely enough, I went bowling today and got a better score bowling with my left hand than I did my right (I always bowl righty). I can kick with the same strength with both feet, so I really have no way to find out which hand is my dominant hand. I am pretty sure it is my right hand, but then again I have not tried many activites using my left hand. I'm like a very confused ambidextrous person.
# The December Archives are now up.
Washing Your Hands
New Drawing:

Many of my ideas for drawings come from real life situations, and the difference between you and me is that I just draw them. However, I tend to end up with way more ideas than I need so I try to write them down on a special "jokes that I might need later" page in my drawing book. The problem with this is that I continually forget about that page.

In other news I started late one night and finished even later the next night Fight Club by Chuck Palahniunuhununik. I bought that book more than a year ago, and decided to get my $13.98 worth. Another book that I finished was my 198 page drawing book. I started it I think Christmas of 2001, and finished it January 2008. I have moved on to a new grey sketch book.

I beat the system three years ago by making my New Year's Resolution be "no more New Year's Resolutions," and haven't looked back since. Traffic has picked up because of the drawings, so here's a propostion that I'm willing to make: You send more people here, I send more drawings out.
