Some more stuff, managed to touch the ink a little before it had dried, it's bound to happen in drawings this large. the image continues to large to fit comfortable into the scanner, still doubting that I will have time to finish it though. On Monday I'm leaving for Malmö.
Our children's birthdays seems to come more often as the years passes by, it feels like it was yesterday that she was 11. Olivia is heavily into reading Fantasy at the moment, her favourite is the Eragon series (she's getting the last in the trilogy today). Hope she will like it.
Scanned it this time, the ink is not dry yet though a small update, I've been on my feet all day, visiting Stockholm. Started a new image meant for a competition, but I doubt I will finish it on time the deadline is the 5th of December and I'm off to Malmö this monday. Well I'm pretty sure that It's not right for the competition so I'll have a new image instead. To be continued
For most of the time the postman delivers lack lustre deliveries to our mailbox but not so today. I got a parcel from Danny Gregory with his new book I play only a small part in it, but I'm happy to be amongst all the great artists in it (or rather I was quite humbled). As stated in a previous post it can be ordered from Amazon.
Based on the relation I have with our dog, she seldom listens as attentive though. And hey big celebrations I just reached one hundred followers, I wonder when I can call it an Army?
Spent all yesterday at a seminar at Svenska Tecknare, (Swedish Illustrators association). Made this while listening to a panel discussion on how to make it abroad, but I had to stop after on hour, my arms ached (I had a rather specular fall while out running the other day, it has snowed and the track was all icy).
One week of Unix. On the whole it works surprisingly good, I've changed the visuals so it looks completely like a mac (I've got a bad cas of mac-envy). My computer now starts under three minutes, prior to the switch it took over 15 minutes (If I had re-installed windows I guess it would have gone faster to). One problem arose today, Gimp (the free photo manipulator stopped working after a update of the system) has stopped working. I hope to a get it working later today really need it today, that is one of the drawbacks (some would probably say advantages of unix) is that you have to be prepared to search solutions on the web.
There's a short interview on me over at the DesignTavern, guten apetit. Soon I have to take a new phot of me, that one is getting stale. I have problems with getting the text to stay in a decent place on my blog these days I shouldn't have changed the format (I such at HTML stuff, and I'm not to eager to learn). Update: eager or not I learned it I just have to paste in a "display:block;" in the code, you learn a new thing each day!
I started this while going down to Gothenburg, didn't manage to finish it on the train though. I used to do a lot of train sketching while I worked in Stockholm and libed in Gothenburg but found it extremely taxing now, I must be out of shape. I've started a course in Comic creation at HDK ( Seriekonst & avancerat bildberättande). I hope to get a kick start making some real comics, the progress will of course be shown on the blog.
My computer has some years on it's back and over time it has been getting slower and slower making working on it harder and harder. As I can't buy a new computer at the moment (a fiscal matter) I decided to scrap everything on it and install Unix (Ubuntu) time will tell if I made a big mistake, first impression is a big speed improvement.
