Thanksgiving is over so it’s back to work for me…
I play a game called Elder Scrolls Online where I occasionally have to save the world from infestations of dragons, monsters and various other unsavory creatures. One of the things I like best about the game is it allows you to construct your very own custom characters. As I illustrated this picture of a fellow I designed, I discovered there seems to be a disconnect between the character I see on my Xbox and the character I see in my head. He’s an orc named WeaselHammer, he’s a tank and that’s his ferocious war chicken Frank who stands faithfully at his side, ready for action.
I had a hankering (Missouri Speak) to make pictures on my iPhone Xr with the ProCreate Pocket App, but I needed some sort of fine tip stylus to draw with, so I dug around on Amazon, took a shot in the dark and ordered an inexpensive Meko Fine Tip Stylus. I crossed my fingers and hoped it would work… and it actually did. In fact, it worked surprisingly well.
Super simple to turn on and off, charges with a USB, has a rubbery tip that feels good on the glass and my experience with their customer service was the best. I made a short video of my first attempt at using the stylus on my phone.
Cookin’ up a stack of woofels… er… waffles.
The weather forecast here for Halloween… rain and possible snow… which means no trick-or-treaters at my house… which also means I get to eat the Halloween candy all by myself… scoreboard!
Jack-O-Lanterns have been around for centuries and probably originated from on old Irish Folktale about Jack who was pretty much a jerk when he was alive so when he died he was condemned to walk the earth with a lantern and that creeped the townsfolk out so they carved scary faces into turnips, potatoes and pumpkins, lit them up with candles, put them outside their houses and tried to scare old wandering Jack away with them.
