So today I beat Super Mario 3D Land which was probably one of the more satisfying video game experiences I’ve had in a while. Complaining about the story in a Mario game might sound ridiculous, but I was honestly bothered by how weak Peach is depicted in every single cut-scene in the game. Shouting “Mario!” in desperation was about the only dialogue she had besides sighing in defeat or gasping in excitement for Mario’s appearances. Whatever though. Peach still kicks ass in Super Smash Bros.
I’m working on a comic adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “All Summer In A Day” and its rather satisfying work. Drawing comics can take a while because of just keeping characters consistent-looking, but its very rewarding. I’m actually writing this blog post with my left hand and a Targus iPad Stylus in my right hand. By the way, I’m drawing the comic with my iPad and its making me wonder if I really need a drawing tablet to do digital comics and illustration. The Adobe Ideas app lets me draw and upload sketches to a cloud, and download them anywhere which is handy. Anyways, back to work soon – I need to get a certain amount of this comic done before the Game of Thrones finale tonight.
