In Other News – 19 August 2016

Plans for this weekend? Simple really. I’m busy playing around with an iPad Pro for review, but more importantly, I’m also fondling the pen it came with. Which sounds horribly dirty no matter how I try to phrase that sentence. There’s something cathartic about sitting down and just whiling away the hours sketching. It’s even more cathartic to not have to worry about the area around me looking like a stationary war zone in the process.

Should be fun! Especially when I draw Kyle like one of my French girls.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
