Meep: Good Things

Some exciting events: 

Wacom Cintiq 12WX (I can’t buy this until my Graphire pays for itself)

Previews on youtube for the movie of one of the best books I’ve read this year, Marjane Satrapi’s graphic autobiography Persepolis (they’re in French, but you’ll get the idea):


Finally! The 18th Carnival of Feminist Science Fiction and Fantasy is up (in three parts) at http://troubleinchina.livejournal.com/. I look forward to this carnival – lots of thought provoking discussions. This month is heavier on the gaming side of things, which I am not at all involved in, but I also enjoyed this post on 7 more things heroines can do, because it covers some ground I was exploring in last month’s NaNoWriMo project.

Also, the 5th People of Colour in Science Fiction and Fantasy blog carnival is up at Of Shoes – And Ships – And Sealing Wax, but I only just found out and haven’t read it yet.

  1. So…you use a Graphire? That explains how you are able to upload those wonderful drawings seemingly with no effort. I had (in my starkly unimaginative imaginings) pictured you as drawing with pen and ink on paper and then using a scanner to convert the image into a computer file format.

    I guess I’ll go see how the “Cintiq” compares to a Graphire–just curious.

  2. More to the point, I have a Graphire. Your unimaginative imaginings are quite correct and almost everything is done with pen, ink, pencil or biro on paper (or business cards). I’ve only uploaded one drawing that was done on the Graphire.

    And thanks for the compliment :)

  3. Well, I should have remembered drawings like that “Stain-B-Gon” giraffe ad (which I REALLY like–just the right amount of whimsy) on the back of a business card. Some ad agency should steal that idea, if you ask me.
