What's the deal, Calli?

Your artwork seems to have made a huge leap forward (not that it was bad before, mind you) with the POCKET/CRFH strip and today's.<P>------------------

Well, she's gotten a lot of much-needed rest! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> And I'd like you to name me ONE comic artist who's artwork has NOT improved as he or she continues to draw the strip!<P>-Tom<P>------------------

What's the deal? Simple. It's hand-drawn now.
And I think I'm gonna keep it that way. Photoshop is nice...but mouse precision is frustrating.<P>------------------

Should we start a Buy-Calli-a-Drawing-Tablet fund? *chuckle*<P>Seriously, drawing with a mouse sounds like Hard Work(tm). Just tracing stuff in a vector program is difficult enough.

I think that hand-drawing is a good idea, especially if you don't have easy access to a scanner. In fact, I do a lot of my drawing when I'm not near to my scanner, and then I scan it all in in one go and put the strips together online.<P>Mab

$9.99 -- base price
$1.00 -- my markup
$4.00 -- U.S. shipping & handling<P>So, as you can see...unless I get a sudden influx of POCKET readers/fans (which with my coming "project AP" may happen), this is very impractical to use as a large-scale money-making scheme. However, as a means of making a little extra pocket change (emphasis on little), I think it'll work.<P>And I'd never want you guys to feel OBLIGATED to buy something, because I know almost all of you are poor students (or poor recently-no-longer students) just like me.<P>------------------
