Wacom Drivers

Was hoping to do some colouring of my WebComic this evening on my Wacom Cintiq 12WX in Manga Studio EX5, but just had another 3 or 4 frustrating hours of trying to get drivers recognised instead. Lots of googling, reading different articles, watching different YouTube videos, installing, uninstalling drivers from Wacom: systems, services.msc, tablet service, restarting, different combinations, etc. etc. etc.
& every time hitting ‘The Tablet Driver Was Not Found’ message.

Think I’m done now. I’m not going to get on this particular Wacom 12WX merry go round again unless I have good reason to hope it could have a positive outcome.
Back to the literal drawing board: with good old fashioned pencils and inks for now!

WebSite tweaking

I gave this website an SSL/Https upgrade last night to toughen up security.
Also, I’ve swapped the portfolios around so Dasie Literal & the Mystery Camera Boy is the first thing visitors land on. I’m hoping that the format in portfolios will be ok for the webcomic as more pages are added.

Dasie Litral page 1 inks

I finished the inks on page 1 of Dasie Litral & the Mystery Camera Boy, and have uploaded to the portfolio page.
I overdid the inks on the hands, which I was disappointed about initially, but I’ll hopefully be able to sort out a bit in Manga Studio, & have reassured myself with the knowledge that this is all practice & part of the process with wrestling with this comic that’s been many years in the making. & by making I mean developing in sketch books, scribbles, and dreams, and is only now starting to build into the Webcomic I’ve been hoping for!

ScribbleCon 2018

My daughter SMT and me had an awesome time at ScribbleCon yesterday. After having been to many Comic Conventions together over the past 8 years or so (London, Leeds, Birmingham, Lakes) it was fantastic to get to experience being on the ‘other side of the table’ for the first time: and we loved it! We met some great people in our room: it was a lot of fun and we’re already looking forward to next year. I got some great advice on my webcomic from my neighbour Katherine-Alex. You can check out her wonderful art at unspeakablearts.wordpress.com. Katherine-Alex took a photo of SMT and me for us and it was just the right photo at just the right time to ‘kickstart’ this page:

It’s progressing! 🙂

Etsy Shop

I opened an Etsy shop. Something I’ve been meaning to do for a while.
So far there’s only 1 painting for sale there. A watercolour I did of a statue in Lindisfarne… Over 20 years ago!
Hopefully will put some more recent paintings up for sale before too long!

Here’s the link: Etsy Shop

Personal Art Projects

I created a new Portfolio folder on the website today for personal art projects. This is a place for some art I’ve done over the years with more of a therapy connection. Another step in the direction of integration. 2018…

A wise old Owl

Very busy at work & struggling to find time for drawing. Here’s a pen & ink illustration of an owl I drew more than 20 years ago in Sunderland. Trying to connect with the past for inspiration.

Painting completed

I finished the painting as a present for my wife. It’s the first painting I’ve done in about 10 years I think. There are several things I’d change (proportion mainly), but it had reached a balance that I liked so it seemed the right time to step back & give it as a present. Fortunately my wife & daughter love it, which was my goal, so even if there are some proportion glitches I still count it as a success.

(Maybe one day I’ll tweak that left eye!)

Painting

Doing my first painting for… well, several years at least. It’s of my wife & daughter. & right now it’s very challenging. Probably not helping that I’m also using paints from several years ago! Still, shouldn’t blame the tools…!

Web Design

I’ve got no training in web design, and definitely not in coding, so my recent tweaks to this website have been a steep learning curve. Any constructive feedback and/or tips from visitors here would be appreciated! Thanks & best wishes, Adam
