Botched up 4 panels that I attempted to draw by hand since my wacom went kaput. I drew these 4 panels 3 TIMES. Pfft.
Who’s out of practice?
For two of the best people I know. Congratulations, and all my love.
I’ve been putting this off, but with the constant delays in updates, it seems like I have no choice but to address the issue I’ve been having a lot of bad luck lately with my equipment; first my laptop konked out and was out of commission for 2 weeks, then my pen tablet stopped responding to me. These are all just excuses really, given that I could always switch back to analog- gog knows I’ve been inking with a brush longer than I have with a pen tablet. The problem is my deadlines have been piling up on me and with the lost time, I’ve had no choice but to prioritize clients over my personal entries. It sucks, I know
Currently, I’m trying to figure out *just* what is wrong with Knives, and I’m shopping for a new pen tablet (this shaky one I’m currently using is 4 years old). I sent Knives over to the Power MAC Store, but after paying P1,000 for a system check up, those fancy tech guys couldn’t find anything wrong with her and sent her back to me with an A-OK stamp and a report of basically NOTHING. Unfortunately for me, those bastards didn’t get anything done, and Knives is still intermittently buggy: sound refuses to work, boots on safe mode, caps lock with a mind of its own, and programs operating at the speed of snail. They can expect bloody hell from me as soon as Holy Week blows over, but unfortunately this changes nothing; until I get my equipment set and deadlines out of the way, my hands are tied. All I’m asking is please be patient, friends
What I CAN do though, is promise you a date: UPDATES ON CEREALSATURDAYS WILL RESUME ON MAY 1ST.
Remember me? Egad I’ve been away from a LONG while, and I’m truly sorry for the serious lack of updates. To make it up to you, I’d like to have another free for all. It started like this: 2 nights ago, my dear friend Alice requested that I illustrate 10 commandments for assholes;Â being a guilt-ridden, cantankerous lady with a billion and one peeves, I happily agreed. All the same, I’d love to give you guys a shot at choosing which streaks of douchebag horror to address. Vent it all out, if you will. Much like the Illustrated Tweets exercise I had a couple of weeks ago, I’ll be illustrating these 10 commandments, and then we can look at the negativity we’ve wrought and clap gleefully! Yay!Â I’ve already done one to get the ball rolling:
10 ways to quit, asshole.
I confess, I’ve got another little tablet in the works already… but if you’ve got a good one to share, by all means, send it over!
fat ass stickers
I couldn’t decide what to say, really..
Harsh much? Well, that’s your judgment. These stickers were Inspired (and requested) by cranky pal Ping ala pet peeve #35773: people who are neither sickly nor handicapped, yet insist on inconveniencing others by riding the elevator up ONE FLOOR.
In the mean time, I’m sorry for being so absent here on cerealsaturdays. Please rest assured that projects are fervently in the works : ( Knives is really buggy. Am doing my best on my end; might resort to returning to the ol’ brush and bristol board at this rate. Happy friday, mates!
