I'd planned to do a few special drawings and then return to do new Master the Tiger
pages, and I eventually will. The pencils are already finished and linger on my desk.
However, at the moment I'm going through the final phase of writing my BA thesis, and I feel I just have to devote my entire time to this project. It's the only way of doing it that I can reconcile with my conscience. Not only is the deadline closing in much too rapidly, I also have a reputation to defend. You see, it's about English literature ("The Role of Nature in Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Books", if you want to know), and this sort of thing is one of the few disciplines I can pride myself to be really good at. Moreover, It's a subject I'm actually interested in, and, as anyone who has ever studied at a university will readily attest, this is a rare gift. Not that the outcome will be anything but 40 pages of outrageously boring stuff - it's an academic paper after all.
The downside of all this is that I feel compelled to take an artistic break until October, when I'm supposed to be done.
The upside is that I'll return with a few coloured pics. It's been too long since I've last posted something in full colour, and this is the perfect opportunity to make some amends.
On another note, the Duck is still down and there is no end in sight, although the communitiy is periodically assured that they're still working on it. It's always with an uneasy feeling that I follow these news, because they're spreading them on facebook ( www.facebook.com/DrunkDuckcomi…
), and this ever so popular Orwellian nightmare is normally the one site I really don't want to have any dealings with whatsoever.
Good thing you don't have to sign up to read the posts.
Now, guess what other site broke down exactly when I needed it most: my university's library catalogue. Argh!
At least, unlike DD, they managed to jury-rig some kind of working replacement until they fix it completely.
You can surly tell, my fondness of internet stuff has cooled off a bit, lately.
I just hope I won't have to re-upload all those ca. 200 pages of my old stuff again, but I can see it coming. Good thing I never throw anything away. And of course I'm still flirting with the idea of a very own website as well. Anyway, if I really have to post everything anew, I may or may not take the opportunity to add one or two surprises.
