Ah, 2013. Two weeks in and already itâ€™s been a year of major upgrades. One of my wedding ring prongs came loose and â€“ uh oh â€“ out came the diamond, never to be seen again. Thank heavens it was insured. Upgrade! Soon Iâ€™ll have a newer ring with industrial prongs and a new-ring sheen (I assume no new ring smell). Too bad I canâ€™t super-size the new diamond.
I also threw in the towel and upgraded my drawing tools. I bought a Wacom Cintiq drawing tabletâ€¦and letâ€™s just say I could NEVER go back to Micron pens, Bristol Board, and eraser marks. Iâ€™m a junkie. Iâ€™m so in love with this thing that I publicly divorced my husband on Facebook and announced I would marry the tablet.
(I call it â€œSparkyâ€ as a tribute to Charles Schulz. My husband hopes the nickname never becomes an adjective)
Already this thing has me so industrious, I can knock out comic strip drawing in two thirds the time it used to take me using traditional tools. Which leaves me more time for practical mattersâ€¦
â€¦like diamond ring shopping.
