Still trying to get actual pen-on-paper work done
(it’s a little difficult since I’m currently not residing in the same building as my drawing board)
but in the meantime, here’s more ‘Fun With the Cintiq’:
We are gearing up to hit the convention circuit again this year.
Here are the confirmed show so far:
March 16 – 18: Toronto Comicon
April 14 – 15: DINK, Denver CO
April 28 – 29: S.P.A.C.E., Columbus OH
August 30 – September 3: Dragon Con, Atlanta GA
September 21 – 23: MegaCon, Tampa Bay FL
Hope to see some of you!

…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.
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?
