I downloaded Portal 2 because it was on special offer (~10 Euro! 66% off!)... how could I resist, and now it's crammed into every available space of my C: drive. Eek. I moved all my images to a different partition and emptied the recycling bin for good measure but I think it'll be worth it. I looks gooood!
finished big book project a few minutes ago. Turned out really well, I'm happy with it. It's a bit of a fringe topic, not one of the big ones, but I hope it'll sell well anyway. Now I only have to draw a few text backgrounds, make scans, and mail the whole package. Good feeling. It's the first thing I've finished since August, hard to believe. Boy, I needed that feeling of accomplishment.
I recently learned that the Angel: Season 6 comics feature a storyline in which Kate Lockley joins in the re-opening of Angel Investigations, along with Angel and Connor and a couple other characters. I did now know that! I mean. If I could've made a wish for S6, that would've been it, pretty much. (Also, Cordy would be back but I won't get greedy for now).
So, curiosity piqued, I started reading the first book of After The Fall, which I had lying around for a year and... I'm loving it so far. The dialog is totally Joss. The setup is interesting. The art is actually good. Well, honestly I dislike the coloring, I think the art would be much better with a great colorist, but the linart, I like it. It's dynamic, not as stiff as you often see in media tie-ins, and the characters are for the most part very recognizable. (And having done those kind of comics myself, that is hard to get right.) So, I'll keep reading. Curious where it takes me.
Actually I'd already read the chapter where Kate runs into Connor and I didn't comment favorably about it at the time because it seemed little more than setup, but I read it again and knowing that it is
just setup and there's more to come... mmmhh. Liking it a whole lot more!
ps. don't diss my girl Kate in the comments, 'kay? She's one of my faves and I'm touchy when it comes to that sort of thing. (Connor too.)Originally posted at Dreamwidth. Comments:
