Contradiction in Terms
You say to-may-toe; I say toh-mah-tah. Deal with it.

I did it, I did it, I'm so cool that I did it! Finally fixed everything on this blog to my satisfaction, including that pesky comment script and the tagboard color. I also fixed up a new template for Dean's birthday present (Shh! It's not up yet. Don't tell!), again thanks to the so-creative Eris. I'm utterly pleased with myself for learning a new skill.

new year's revolution
Speaking of new skills... I usually don't make New Year's resolutions, because (a) I actually like most of my vices, and (b) I'm really a very lazy person by nature; I just manage my time well so it doesn't look like it. But this year I have decided that I'm going to learn how to letter comics.

By computer, of course, not by hand, because my printing sucks, but really, given the wonders of technology, there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to do this. A major reason why I want to do it is that I'd like to see Kestrel Studios put out a (finally!) complete trade paperback of The Lost, which probably isn't going to happen unless we can get the original art re-lettered. (Don't ask-- shit happens in the world of self-publishing.)

So hopefully Vin will have resource material for me to consult, and Marco, Carl, Andrew, and El will have advice from the experts. After all, it's not like it's rocket science... er, is it?

Contrary to what the disclaimer says, you can ask me to design or revamp your blog, but there is a small associated fee.

This site is prettiest if you set your monitor resolution to 1024 by 768... but I won't hold it against you if you don't. Honest.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
