Clank--Thank you. That online drawing program doesn't allow you to do much more so it pares down your drawing tricks to a handful. Nina always has most of her belongings in that backpack. In her dreamworld, Peg, the cat shows up. I'm hoping to have these states collide.
Dik pose--Thanks. My pleasure to be here and contribute. Fragments? Well, let's put it this way, we have enough compelling reasons to put out another one and we are dedicated to doing it. But the main books come first. Mia #2 and Paper Biscuit's second full issue. So, ask us again in two months. We're hoping to make F2, or run aground trying.
Chad--hey, another familiar face. It's already quite the place to hang
Nucleardan--Thanks, Nuke. This was an Oekaki post that was a follow up to an earlier one. It was a view of Nina through her apartment window. Someone commented that it felt like we were Peeping Toms. So, I did the next scene where she finds out.
Rad--Thanks for getting Fragments. Both Enrico and I still get caught smiling about what that project borne of impulse gives us in return. We had fears that it would be viewed as another vanity project, lost in the sea of others like it. But we are steadilly still selling it and getting responses like, "I am in need of Fragments! I have loaned out my own copy many times and so have the other folks who bought them." Warms the heart, dunnit?
Kazu--Yep, Westcan sure has its reputation to precede it. And they are more expensive. I'm too lazy to shop around. I may just go ahead and have PB done through them. I'll post updates.
Clank--Oekaki is a drawing program on the net. There are some really formidable ones that I can't figure out (I'm lazy). The Sketchbook Sessions' Shane board has one.
The other one I used to visit is Bladecham.com. He has it in his link, OK-BBs, that's Oekaki Bulletin Board (I'm guessing).

So, without an drawing application you can draw and post at once and you don't need space to house the drawing yourself before posting. It takes some getting used to because it is very basic. It has layers and different kinds of brushes and you can manipulate the color plus a near limitless undo. I don't know how to use most of it. But it helps me keep focus on what's important as an exercise--without all the Photoshop muscle. My one warning about these boards, most of the ones I know are Japanese and they have no qualms about very sexually implicit drawings and even more questionable is the underage girl proclivity.
Doujin Hoops has a page that has links to more.
Tread carefully. I'd stay with the Shane board one (see that tiny link at the very bottom of the bulletin board?)
Kazu--I have few palletes I default to. This is one of my usual ones. Uesugi, the master, has so many of these color symphonies that he weaves with what seems like effortless grace. Sigh.
Jrr--Thanks. I hope I can get more time to just doodle. Maybe after I finish the book. Warm up for Fragments 2!
Rodolphe--You and me both. I won't tell if you keep mums about it, or we're both getting the rolling pin treament. Besides, I happen to think we're a couple of lucky guys with our respective better halves. They're babes!
Finnegan--Thanks, Bob. Glad to be hear. "Comfy" sure describes the place. All you need now are floppy sofas and coffee. Pass the shortbread.
