Wow has it nearly been 2 weeks without a peep? =_= Sorry, friends. I’ve been a lot busier than I expected. Please stay tuned…
I actually drew and inked these last Monday, (in a Burger King, no less!)
Oh yes, before anything, disclaimer alert:
Since Knives, my laptop got buggy and went to the shop, I haven’t been able to properly clean up my CerealSat work. Normally, “cleaning up” wouldn’t be that big a deal, since cropping was all I ever needed to do back in the day. However, now that I’m using other scanners (belonging to my mom’s office and Giz), I unfortunately don’t know how to automatically get the contrast level I’m used to… Thus all the gray and dullness. Ugh. I know, it’s horrid; I apologize for all the gray and all the dullness.
THANK YOU FOR FIXING IT TZI!
Alright kids… just like the first panel in this set says, these hourlies were drawn and inked out the day right after I resigned from good ol’ Bates 141. (That was… around Feb 2 or something. @_@)
Now,some of you might be thinking: “ZOMG REG YOU QUIT??”, while a few of you are more of a “Pfft. Old news.” variety. I apologize for the loss of days here at cerealsat, but just like my last two entries screamed, I do NOT own a scanner. That said, updates might have to be more scheduled from now on, since I no longer have the luxury of a fast working, hi-res Canon scanner right at my desk. (/tear)
NOR do I have a steady income of moneyz…(/cry)
…or officemates to troop to Bugsy’s with at 7:00 PM. (/WAAAH)
AHEM. But enough of the bawling right? This is old hat news as far as my days go, afterall. So without further delay:
I also apologize for the wonky spacing and de-sat quality. I SHOULD fix it, but after all the bruhaha I went through just get these 5 pages up (finally) I really would rather NOT. hehe… (I dunno. Maybe later after supsup._
Off we go!
Except for the title. Soak it up, folks… it’s the most color you’re gonna see today:
If it wasn’t clear for all of you, that second panel at 2:00 is my manyak face. Also, the final panel says 6:00 but really, it was more of a 5:45 deal. Hehe.. I luckily recovered from my nausea, keeping all those expensive drugs in meh belly. *shudder* I’m keen on skipping on homeward bound the minute this post is published too. Hope you all enjoyed. This is as self-indulgent as it gets, folks! Bow!
Sigh. Hi folks. I’m back- not completely recovered but in the very least, I’m back. I had an awful weekend, chock full of sick taste, crankiness, aches, fat person woes, fever… you get the picture. It’s depressing for me to have to admit this, but I think it’s time I officially quit smoking -WELL DUH, right?- And by “officially” I mean I solemnly swear that I’ll make an actual effort to kick the habit. For realz.
The decision came about last night in a paranoid storm of anxiety. I had only ONE working nostril, and a chest cavity that wheezed like an ancient squeak toy. What if I doze off and stop breathing? Gog if I die in this dusty, wreck of a room I’m going to be so mad… Ahem. Etc etc. So much for a coming back to work well rested; I ended up sleeping at 3 *sad face*
To better understand the last two panels, here’s the infamous “Calvin & Hobbes final strip“. Don’t fret- it’s obviously doctored. Rumor has it there’s a similar strip floating around the interwebz for Peanuts where Snoopy’s put down. Shrugs.
Also, you might’ve noticed that I used a regular ol’ pen for these Hourlies. As crappy as things were, I didn’t wanna push it with brush pens. I’m sorry this is all I’ve got to show… I honestly tried to make a ton of comics; I wanted to make up for my absence with a huge post. Pfft. flu pwns reg.
Okay, so here I go.
I apologize to anyone who’s stumbled on this site… I need to get onto some serious decorating. Maybe some new curtains, a coffee table and a rug that matches the wall paper. What do you think? Think of this as a soft opening of sorts. I’ve just been itching to finally SAY something here at CerealSat- fugliness aside. It’s just that I’ve been relying on eljay for so long, I must admit I feel silly blogging like this when I can’t even say for certain ANYONE is out there. Even shopping around for page lay-outs has been intimidating. (But that’s why I’ve got you, right Jam? Many thanks again :o)
HOWELL. Let’s do this right. Here’s basically what I’ve got going on back at the old place, but let’s try to get serious about this moving out business, yeah?
And so without further ado… tadaaa:
