if you do something good, don't do it for free


if you're kim-minded, here's your post: april drew these.

if you're mind is more david-like here's the rest...
and we're back! our trip to hawaii was waaaaay to short, but coming home to san diego isn't so bad. if you're one of those people that hasn't seen it yet, and you know who you are (Jeremy Parsons) WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GO SEE IT! don't bring the little kiddies though (it's a little intense for them).
with all the early hype this film was getting we went in with high expectations. it did not disappoint. THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME! we are super bummed that Heath Ledger is gone. he was such a rad JOKER.
after watching it april put stylus to tablet once again and came up with some pretty cool drawrings (as prounounced by SIMON) based on scene shots from The Dark Knight.
the joker said "if you do something good, don't do it for free." who knew you could get business skills from a comic book villian?
p.s. i followed joker's advice and stole these pictures from april.







i believe in harvey dent! "you either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villian."

that's how i roll.
