Bernie Bat

A couple of months ago I posted this commission:Which was 3 x 5 ‘practice’ version of this:

This one’s 17 x 22. The Batman is ‘light-boxed’ (euphemism for ‘traced’)  from an original Bernie Wrightson pencil drawing.

The owner of the original art sent me a scan so that I could use it created a new piece, complete with a ‘Gerhard background’.

Wish me luck on the inking.

Slowly entering the 20th century…

…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…

…but…

…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.
