Daily Dose of dutch #14

Nothing much, just popping in to make a note that I'm doing another a follow-up to my previously mentioned Tankadere comic. That one was a 6-page story titled 'Better', this one will be a 60-page comic titled 'Worse', expanding on the same world, surrounding the same characters and core ideas. :)

Here's a painting I just did to lead up to that story:
Stay tuned :)

Daily Dose of dutch #12

Okay, so now we're back to the good old daily doses since I'm halting work on my comic for a while, due to end of year Art Theory exam and final projects' deadlines.

Things haven't been going particularly well with me lately.

Money problem is one of the greatest issues. After paying rent for the last three months, I barely have enough left to do anything. Sounds pretty damn pathetic, but I've had little to no luck getting commissioned lately. So if anyone of you out there is interested, I'm more than capabl-

Wait, I'm not actually capable right now, which brings me to the next issue. My laptop's battery charger was fried Tuesday night when I was over at Jamie and John having a baking good time (baking as in getting blizzed). The adapter was literally fried. Sparks and smokes and shit came out of it, and I immediately knew things were gonna get hairy. Now here's the thing, I've been working on a short comic for next year's edition of an annual comic collection-type book, called Tankadere (check out the website here). With everything stored in my laptop and the charger being fucked all over, I might not be able to finish the comic in time and send it in before deadline. eBay is not being the best of help either, for they keep pushing back the expected delivery date of the new one I ordered. So all fingers and toes crossed there.

All that aside, I can't wait to go home in just a month. I miss my folks, the food and being able to lay down and just be lazy as balls.

Till next time,
