League of Extraordinary Bloggers – Who Are you… Who Who???

leaguelogo_mediumHello, my name is… Tell us a little about yourself — even if we all know who you are, there are plenty of new folks wondering if you’re in fact a dog.

Truth be told, I am not a Dog.

I am a goldfish.

(Falls over and dies from lack of water…)

Seriously though.

I am Charles. Stay-at-Home Dad, Husband,Draw-er of Things,Geek and All Around Cool Cat.

At times on the internet I have been known as CrashedNeon, Eboladuck, Crayduck, BobaDuck and now just CRPechonick.

I love this shot of all three of my girls ThinkingIn real life, I am the only male in a house of Females. That does not bother me though. Because my Wife and Children (Internet Codenamed: Wife, Red and Gold) are wonderful. I have been a stay at home father since a little after the oldest, Red, was born. Making the choice to stay at home with the kids is one of the few smart choices I have made in my life.

Being a stay at home Dad has had a side effect though. My Oldest has turned into a bit of a Tom-Boy Geek because of it. (see picture later in post) she would much rather watch Super-Hero Cartoons and goto Comic Conventions then any of your stero-typical girl stuff. Lucky for me though Goldie has turned out to be a girly girl there by redeeming me with my wife. 🙂

I am someone who is rushing through his 40’s at an alarming pace and trying to stay a kid.

I do this by drawing cartoons reading comics and being an over all geek.

I have way to many projects in development. I have enough outlined and plotted ideas to last a lifetime but very few finished pages.

My goal is to some day make some of these ideas into a comic of my own…

I am a collector.

No real central focus like some people have, but anything that catches my eye.

I do have a series of Mini-Collections, Small obsessions with certain characters or themes that have ended up in them having little displays of their own.

Some of those include Famous Cartoon Ducks, Hulk, Lego Mini-Figures, Boba Fett, Greedo, Gammorean Guards, Bossk and Green Toys.

So That is all I feel like writting right now… The house is a DISASTER and I really should be cleaning… Maybe I will return and expand on this more later… No Promises though.

Toys – Lego Mini-Figure Display

I have yet to figure out the whole comic posting stuff here on the blog so for this Wednesday please accept this random post…

My daughter and I are addicted to the Lego Mini-Figure Blind Bags. We have all of series 5 thru 10 and a small handful of earlier ones.

On top of the display you can also see our collection of Doctor Who Character Builder Mini-Figures, Marvel Comics Avengers Mini-Figures and our Lord of the Rings Fellowship Mini-figures.

How We Made Our Mini-Figure Display
