…I’m not quite ready for the 21st century just yet.
We still just use our phone as a —you know— a phone.
The only internet access we have is a Rogers ‘Rocket Stick’ (if you use more than 12 gig a month, the costs ‘rocket’ and they ‘stick’ you with the bill).
So no YouTube or Netflix, we don’t have cable or satellite.
Our primary source of heat is still the wood stove and we still live out in the country where we regularly have power outages and frequently have no running water…
…I have a new Wacom Cintiq 13HD drawing tablet:
I had decided —for reasons too numerous and boring to go into here— that I would colour the ‘Absent Cat’ pages on the computer and that things would go much faster if I used the right equipment.
So far, so good, I think.
We are off to Fan Expo Vancouver!
We’ll be at table P14:
Come on down!
What else have you got to do? It’s gonna rain all weekend anyway.
(Big surprise for Vancouver.)
I’ve been trying to get the next chapter of ‘Smile of the Absent Cat’ done
but ‘things’ keep getting in the way…
…like gettin’ ready for Halloween!
Well, it’s that time of year again. Boat’s out of the water, got stuffed full of turkey,
and it was time to head over to Comic 1 in Stoney Creek:
Thanks to Casey and the whole gang at Comic 1 for a fun day.
Have a great autumn, everyone!
Maybe we’ll see some of you in Vancouver:
I’ve been booked for this show for over a year.
We’ve been contacting them about our travel arrangements for weeks.
Yesterday, a week before the show, someone calls to let us know that due to ‘budget cuts’ my appearance at the Nashville show has been cancelled.
My apologies to anyone who was planning on seeing me at the show… see you at Dragon Con Atlanta next year?
A cool shot of the Wiarton marina (most of it), from their website:
I had taken my drawing stuff up to the boat but then left it all in the car and went sailing instead.
And now that the weather’s turned to crap again,
it’s back to the old drawing board.
Our friends, Theresa and Peter help us celebrate Canada’s 150th…x
…oh, and Happy Independence Day to you U.S.ers!
Coming up soon:
We’ll be bringing items that are too large to haul onto an airplane
including limited edition artist proofs of the
Harry Potter poster I did for Dark Hall Mansion.
