Nothing is ever simple

I leave the country on Friday, and the guy who has been helping me out in Japan just emailed me asking if the thing I got in the mail was a real visa or just a certificate of eligibility to get a visa. I've never worked outside the country, so after filling out visa applications and stuff, I figured that I had a visa. WRONG. I guess after you apply for a visa you then need to send this certificate to a Japanese Embassy to get a visa. At first I tried to change my flight to a later date, but my one way ticket DOUBLED if I did. So now rather than staying here for my friend's birthday and relaxing before the trip, I get to take a nine to ten hour bus ride to Chicago, turn in the certificate, spend the night at my cousin's house, then wake up, get my visa, and hop back on a bus. This is going to be the craziest few days. And here's a WIP of the zombies that I was trying to get done before I left. We'll see if it still happens. Suggestions are welcome.

good luck, paul. you will need it after i have destroyed most of your soul in a battle destined to ascend my legacy into the chambers of noble victor. the ravaged and savage remnants of humanity, the few to survive our epic duel, will remember you as an inferior but memorable challenger. they will use the tragedy of your life as a story to teach the young a lesson of hubris and the consequences that await headstrong but inescapably weak fools. en garde.

also, the image still suffers from compositional awkwardness, and the lawnmower still does not read. i would propose a total revision only if you're dedicated enough to overcome its flaws.

i found an awesome picture of you. in this picture, your hair accounts for at least half of your cranial mass.

peace! <3
