Of course, who can blame Erika-sama for being grumpy. She's a character in this strip. It would ruin any girl's day, fer sure. :)
I'm late, and I'm gonna keep this short today, mainly because I am up to my ears in stuff to do - a good part of which are things for Megatokyo itself. I've listened and read and got a good feel for what people's reaction to a l33t shirt would be, so this weekend I plan to design one. I've done t-shirts before, and usually they come out pretty cool - hopefully we wont disappoint.
I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has e-mailed me in the past few weeks. If you didn't hear back from me, I apologize... I'm terrible with e-mail. Mainly because i could easily spend 3 hrs a day doing just email with the volume I've been getting, and I just can't do that. I'll try to get back to you. Promise. It's just that i gotta get drawings and strips done first. Oh, and that annoying day job thing too. :)
I don't even remember going to bed last night. All i knew is that i woke at 11 am this morning - and it didn't feel like i got anywhere enough sleep. I was working on this drawing of Erika last night, and had just added Kimiko to the picture. There are some drawings of Erika kicking around, but I wasn't quite happy with the design yet. After spending some time on it this morning, i'm pretty satisfied. Dom told me that he wondered where all of her heavy artillery was. My comment was that her ability to wrap largo into a small pretzel was enough for daily use, unless he really pissed her off and higher levels of vaporization were needed...
ack, giving away too much. ^_^
got a lot in store for the next few weeks. I almost fell into the temptation of playing Kanon once again last night... (sigh) good thing i didn't. I'd still be missing. :)
Ah, and while doing my normal rounds, i felt i should point you to plutonia.net - phil and I have been friends for a long time now, partly because I've always found the news, information and other stuff on his site interesting and useful. Also, his little rants remind me a lot of my own... he's an inspiration. ^^ I had to beat him over the head a few times to get him to go back to that format, but thankfully he has - it must have had something to do with the sun there down-under. :)
Of particular note is his ArtMap site - Phil regularly visits a large variety of fan-art sites and keeps tabs on when they were last updated. Very useful for those of us to lazy to check them out ourselves. :P
... and, yea, i know. I owe you some artwork Phil. ^^;;
