'Ello, how are you? Well?
Just a quick Adam Update (tm) for ya.
First up, I actually found a bargain on eBay! I've been after a graphics tablet for a little while now and, after checking some reviews, had decided on the make and model I wanted. Generally when I buy on eBay, my attempts at bidding cannily fail miserably; I either get outbid at the last second, or panic and end up spending too much money. Not this time, though! I bought a brand new Wacom Bamboo One graphics tablet for...
£10 + postage!
It arrived a couple of days ago, but I've not managed to use it much yet. I found a guide to drawing with a tablet though, and the little time I have had with it, I've spent practising.
The reason I bought it is that, at some point in the future, I'd like to start a webcomic. I read a fair few different comics, and believe that it's something I could do myself. Of course, I need to learn to at least draw basic shapes first (I haven't drawn a thing in 10 years), so it'll be a while. Also, my writing comes first.
Speaking of writing (natty segueway, huh?), I've been working on the next Gumshoe episode. I know I'm way overdue already, but I've been busy. Honest.
Anyway, the first draft of "Case 133: Felony And Ivory" will be finished tomorrow, and I'm hoping to get the majority of the editing done a few days after that. I'd like to have it up by this time next week, but we shall see. Cross your fingers!
