MADRID Come on Richard, why are you so down about this mission.
RICHARD Because it’s stupid.
(Richard and Madrid are walking through the streets of Moscow)
MADRID It is not stupid. Every mission has its value.
RICHARD They didn’t need us for this one.
(Richard and Madrid are walking through the streets of Istanbul)
MADRID How can you be so grumpy?
RICHARD It’s not that hard.
(Richard and Madrid are walking through the streets of Hong Kong)
MADRID If nothing else, it’s fun to take advantage of traveling to exotic locations.
RICHARD These aren’t exotic locations.
(Richard and Madrid are walking through the streets of Paris. Portions of TEC Land Amusement park can be seen across the river. Perhaps the “Worldstar tour of tomorrow” Globe)
MADRID London, Moscow, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Paris? You can’t get much more exotic than that!
RICHARD They’re just themed lands. We’re in an amusement park!
January 7th, comics will return to REGULARLY scheduled updating. That is, twice a week. There will be Wednesday updates this week, but not on Christmas. My husband and daughter are on break for two weeks for Christmas.
2013 started out well, but it went downhill from there in many ways. My intention was to upgrade my equipment by purchasing a Yiynova and I GOT it! Thank you! Unfortunately, my laptop had been giving me trouble and in September was replaced… by a unit lacking a wacom digitizer. This was a horrible, horrible thing that HP did to me. :/ I depended on my laptop for lots of inking and other work and since we share a computer, I can’t always be at it and it was stressing me out to the point that I tried to make as much use of it as I could to do inking and comics, that I had less time for actual penciling so now I’m OUT of penciled pages! I also couldn’t get to any commissions. :/ (Stressing over stupid things also interrupts workflow. 9.9 I was stupidly anxious for no real reason.)
I did NOT want to buy a new laptop this year. I got the Yiynova. I planned on this for next year, but when it looked like I was going to, I kind of dug in that this time, I want a NICE laptop.
In the end, as in, this weekend, I just gave up on getting a nice new tablet pc, the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga, i7, 8 gigs of RAM with a 12’5″ WACOM screen. In preparation, I cleared off a part of my table and after yet another in a string of obvious scammer offers for my laptop, just gave up and began installing most of what I need on it. I’m not happy about it, but it works ok hooked up to the Yiynova in the bedroom on my desk, so I can stream again. It took over a day to install everything and transfer everything.
I hope I kill it.
