Wow, a full week between blogs. My apologies. I did not intend for that to happen.
It has been a busy week, so this is just a random thought kinda day here at Earth G.
I recieved some software this past week that should help me build my website for The Crimson Scarab webcomic. It took me a while to find a good and reasonably priced program, and it took longer than that to accept that I wasn’t going to be able to take my limited knowledge of page building and do it myself. If you have visited www.crimsonscarab.com
, then you’ve seen pretty much the extent of my abilities. Hopefully, with the help of the newly arrived software, you’ll start to see a more dynamic page soon.
I’ve also recieved an amazing book this past week. How To Make Webcomics
is the product of four authors, all of whom have successful webcomics of their own. I almost didn’t bother picking up this book, since I’ve been disappointed with the other books on the subject matter I’ve purchased over the last year. Luckily, the site I order my comics from was offering it at a discount, so I bit.
I’m glad I did.
This book actually gives me a lot of information I need. Technical questions I had that I couldn’t find answers to are addressed in the book, as well as questions I didn’t even know to ask! It is also a straightforward kinda book that reads easy. I’ve only had it for a couple of days, and haven’t gotten deep into it yet, but I can already tell this is going to be a valuable book for me over the next year.
I have to buy a scanner. My current one has... well, some sort of "burn" mark in the image scan. I suppose, given that it is about 10 years old, it has done its time. Given the cost, along with some other purchases I have to make, it won’t be something I can pick up this week. May be a few weeks away. So, there is a new tentative starting month on the Crimson Scarab... but I’m not saying when yet. I don’t want to say "May" and miss it, and I don’t want to say "June" and procrastinate... so I’m just holding off until I can firm everything up.
Wizard World L.A. is taking place this weekend. So far, nothing I’ve been interested in has been announced. Spider-Man stuff, but I dropped that book.
Alright, that’ll do for now. I’ll type at you later, hopefully not letting an entire week pass!
