So, the vacation ended on Sunday, after which I had my last day at work and now there’s a week before I start at a new job, which will be rather different from the old job. During the vacation I didn’t work quite as hard on comics as I had hoped, but there will be new material soon. I just need to buy a scanner, because I can’t use the one at my old workplace anymore. Today I bought a drawing tablet, which is an exciting little gadget. It’s not exactly state-of-the-art, but it will most probably turn very useful, once I get the hang of it. It’s a Wacom Graphire 4. And now I want a Cintiq 21UX. Maybe next year, or whenever I have gained sufficient funds and do not decide to invest them in a Les Paul Standard, red sunburst, which has been on the top of my wish-list for many years.
Anyways, our holiday was both busy and relaxing and the summer’s last strawberries from my parent’s garden were simply phenomenal. I feel sorry for you for not having the chance to taste them. On our last evening in Finland we cooked a dinner for our friends and everything else on the menu than the meat and fish originated from my parents plantation, which I found particularly satisfying.
Yes, I should draw comics about all that and not write about it here. I just wanted to say that I’m back - in the unlikely case you were wondering, when there will be any new comics.
