2015/04/16: Still on break

My wrists are even more terrible than usual lately, but I'm still drawing simple things (obviously). I have an appointment with an orthopedist on Friday who will hopefully have some ideas about what to do, and if I just need to take a leave of absence from my day job that's doable. Of course that means not being able to work on Lewi, either, which is frustrating for me because I really want to work on it. Argh.

Meanwhile, I ended up not liking the Surface Pro 3 after all (contrary to my previous news post), and ordered a Wacom Cintiq Companion 2. Hopefully that'll work out a lot better.

As always I'm accepting guest art and guest strips and so on, and I have stuff for sale. Please check it out!

2015/04/09: End of chapter 2

Probably a good time for me to take another week off. Also I have recently acquired a Surface Pro 3. I'll write up a thorough review at some point but in the meantime, the summary is that I like it but with a few reservations (mostly in that the stylus accuracy could be better and Windows 8.1 still has a lot of rough edges, especially with how Photoshop works in it).

As far as why I went with the Surface Pro 3 instead of the Cintiq Companion 2, this is why. Basically I really wish Wacom made a Cintiq in the same size as the Intuos Pro Large. 13" is too small, 22" is too huge. I'd actually have gone with the Cintiq Companion 2 if it weren't for it having such a stupidly gigantic bezel and relatively tiny screen, not to mention the fact there's nowhere I can find in Seattle where I could try one out in person first. But if I can try a Cintiq Companion 2 out I might end up switching to that anyway (since there's enough moderate annoyances with the Surface that I'm not particularly enamored with it).

2015/03/26: Upcoming schedule

As usual, my wrists are still sucking so I might need to take it easy a bit? I don't know. BUT ALSO: Emerald City ComiCon is coming up! Come find me this weekend!

(I will also be at the drink-and-draw Thursday night, on behalf of both of the local cartooning meetup groups I'm a member of.)
