I have these two bookmarks I made years ago for Alien Dice. They sat in a drawer for awhile, until I realized I could paint over them and decorate them for other things. But, before I recycle all of them, I’m offering them to readers for $10 each, which includes shipping in the US. I’ll have to check shipping internationally. They are 5″ x 1.25″ in size with sublimation printed surfaces. They look the same as in the photos, not incredibly sharp, but defined. Just paypal me and put in Scritches or Hug Bookmark. You can get both for $20 and I’ll add a couple other of my cardstock Alien Dice bookmarks!
This offer is good until next Tuesday, July 30th. The remainder will be recycled.
Gotta move that post that’s been there forever away! Ok, so after the Ativ fiasco, I now have a Surface Pro! It is quite awesome and it WORKS and does everything it’s supposed to do without problems or delays! Thus, how I got all the work done I needed to get done despite family being home all day, every day, for the holidays! Now I gotta pay for the darn thing, but at least now I can WORK!!!
Edit: Well… so I looked into this particular laptop. It’s an awesome laptop, but it is clearly NOT wacom based and … it doesn’t appear to be anything more than a glorified mouse in pen form. I’ve viewed several youtube videos showing it in action, so new plan: I will go to inking on all the 11 x 17 bristol, printing out inks on my awesome wide format printer and inking on my awesome light table. Well.. I get an AWESOME laptop I could never afford that costs more than any computer I’ve ever had… Ebay’s not promising, by the way. $750… yeah, I’d rather keep it and work toward getting the Yiynova I want that isn’t out yet in its new form.
Just got off the phone with the HP rep assigned to my escalated case. I was very concerned, because they normally don’t want to talk to me on the phone while repairing my computer. Usually it’s email. So now I’m in tears.
They can’t fix my tablet pc because the part they need to fix it is no longer available. But, since it’s still under warranty (I bought an extended 3 year warranty for a reason, so I’d always have that peace of mind that I’d have a work machine), they are REPLACING it with a BRAND NEW BUILT Tablet PC, the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G1. And they are throwing in a new 3 year warranty. HP just made up for the tablet pc they should’ve replaced before I got the last one and it does make me happy with them.
Judging by the page they had me fill out to show me what’s on it, it’s a nice upgrade, although the screen’s a tiny bit smaller. I wasn’t even aware they HAD new wacom penabled machines! I had looked and not seen one and thought the current tablet pc was the last HP one I’d have. Guess I was wrong. Oh yeah, back to the first sentence, it appears I won’t get it until Mid October, which means lots of NO UPDATES, which is really going to stress me out. I’m still going to try to get updates out, but they will be sporadic. Hand inking them would be great, except that my scanner’s not big enough and it causes ‘problems’ when inking larger pieces. I may still try it.
Otherwise, I’m going to concentrate on commissions and putting together books. It’s what I can do and I need to keep busy to keep from worrying.
Edit: Ok, done for now! No, the colors are NOT going to stay like that. This is just temporary until I get my laptop back.
Upgrading Alien Dice this morning, which means the site will be clunky for a short time! (2 hours or less)
I am still having problems with my laptop and after contacting HP about the issues, they would like me to send it in again. I haven’t been able to get the Yiynova I planned to replace my laptop with, so I’m going to spend the weekend inking since that’s what I do the quickest on my tablet PC. I’m going to try to ink using my intuous, but it’s not as fast or as nice to my eye.
No, I’m not wanting to go out and get a Surface Pro. The screens are too small and I don’t feel it’s worth the price as it currently is. Next fall, I’ll probably be after one if the prices drop, they have Haswell, and they have LARGER screens. I work on a 12.1″ screen. Pros have a 10″ screen. 2 inches makes a huge difference! For now, I just want a device that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg and does what it’s supposed to do without glitching constantly!
That’s pretty much it.
