Hello! If you are reading this then I owe you two things:
1) An apology - Sorry. If you’ve been hanging out around here for a bit you may know that I left my cushy job as a designer in Chicago to start my own design firm. So far it has gone better then I dared imagine…but the downside comes when clients need things and I only have a few days to get it to them. I literally had about 10 hours of sleep last week.
So that explains a bit why this comic is so late. Still, unacceptable. I will try not to use those precious ten hours for insane items such as sleep and finish a comic or two. [handshake noise]
2) A big bowl of thanks with extra sugar - For sticking in there even with a spotty navigator. Rest assured I will be fired and then be forced to bring in my own replacement. On a free comic. That I’m sure people would have every interest in continuing. Clearly this is a well thought out plan. [golf clap]
In better news, I now can see! I picked up a snazzy 24″ widescreen LCD for my office and although I’m a day in, I think I’ve found a new reason to live. Previously all strips had been done using my 13″ laptop screen which was slowly causing me to lose my mind. If anything, the art should begin to look much nicer from here on out. [widescreen monitor dance]
One final jot of news before I hit the hay (racing against 3 am), is I went through about five books on creativity on the camping trip. Many were a re-read to get my heart back on track, but one was new. This was Julia Cameron’s famous “The Artist’s Way” which begins out as pretentious as it sounds but trails into usefulness beyond reproach. I’m going to be following through on the courses in the book week-by-week and I’ll let you know how it all works out. Should be fun to see how long I can stick to it before I get distracted by something shiny. Hey…what is…[silence]
Today’s comic superstar is: no.good.at.coding for always having some cool point of view to bring to the table. I bet you are very good at coding despite the name.
Today’s hidden comic message: is just one word, with letters in different panels. Easy as pie. Down the line I’m going to try and tell whole stories in these but maybe once we get out of the current storyline (which should be soon).
Funny Google search term: “HA HA I’m using the interweb” and Pixelton is number 1. Woo for Google being broken!
Thanks for reading!
