Moving Along

I wanted to do another update sooner rather than later so hopefully I can get back into the habit of regular updates. Otherwise you probably wouldn't see me again until June. Let's see if I can work this out when next semester begins.

Today's comic I'd like to introduce to you is called Ballpoint, by Elliott Rodriguez, aka thunderstrike, which has already gained some hefty readership since it's begun. I don't have a lot of elaborate things to say about it because it's not an elaborate comic; it's literally what he scribbles on the back of receipts when he's having a boring day at work (although maybe "scribble" isn't the right word - I wish I could draw that well in pen). I'm really impressed with his cartooning and I'm sorry he doesn't do more comics with a more solid narrative.

Elliott has some other good comics up that I suggest you check out, but since Ballpoint was the first one I noticed and enjoyed, it's the one I've chosen to praise here. Check it out.

Your tutorial button doesn't work...and it's spelled wrong!

I realize this comment is several months old, but, uh, thanks for pointing that out. As it turns out I made the typo in both the menu link and the url itself, saying "tuitorial" both times, so it didn't link to the right place. Thinking that that extra "i" is supposed to be there is an old, bad habit of mine for some reason.

EDIT - wow, I just re-read that tutorial, and to a person who's never used Paint before in their life, it might be pretty unhelpful. I explain a lot of complicated things without the best use of visual aids and careful phrasing. Maybe I should just take the stupid thing down.
