Got started on a new background arc while I’m working on the main background comic. Hope you all enjoy!
I have seen the future of tablet computing. I am here to report it is going to be very cool.
Removable tablet computers that can double as digital data pads (like iPads) become the new standard – take them anywhere, everything your computer can do as well as all the functionality and portability of top-end pads. Synch with desktop storage devices for greater storage capability, and link to other tablet computers to increase screen area and computing power.
Another Sketch-o-Matic. This time it’s the Molly Maid. These handy robots could cook, clean and perform a wide variety of domestic chores. These versatile robots main failure was their inability to navigate from one worksite to the next.
Molly Maids had huge databanks for cataloging family possessions, location information, quality and so forth. This helped the Molly Maid series to be the most successful domestic robot, but made them poor choices for general labor.
So today, we’re trying to embark on a new path. As you may remember from the previous post, there I tend to overbook myself and end up not getting enough done on anything. To that end, I’m doing a few things to reorganize my time behind the scenes.
See, the core of it is that I remember a time when I was producing huge stacks of art – I was drawing every day, practicing, doodling, coming up with neat ideas. I was drawing when I sat at school and listened to the teachers, I was drawing when I came home and pretending to do homework, I was drawing when A-Team and Magnum PI was on (yes, I’m dating myself), and even the 8 o’clock movie. In fact, is was pretty rare for me to put down my sketchbook – or even look up from it (Star Trek: Next Generation was one such instance)
I miss it, and I miss watching my skills grow and my style evolve as time went on. So here I am, posting some sketch work – focused, indeed. This first taste is some of the development work that’s going into the next bit of story, and you get to watch it grow and develop with me.
My goal is to post a Sketch-o-Matic every day of the week (except maybe Saturdays and Sundays…) It’s blog stuff, so I won’t be posting it in the comic window. So here it is!
