It seems I’m writing another entry (was about to type in “airplane” and then typed “rant”) on a plane somewhere; this time over the Pacific ocean, just past the international date line, eight hours out of Hong Kong. I don’t really have anything to say so I’m just going to fill up space with whatever comes to mind… chances are it ain’t a lot.
So this update (or lack of one) is late because I haven’t drawn anything in the past two weeks aside from some really crappy sketches; London/Paris/Singapore/Hong Kong just aren’t very production conducive (is that a word?) locations. Not to mention I don’t have a scanner or tablet or any really helpful input device of any sort which isn’t very production conducive either.
I hate travelling. I hate being without my “stuff”. Hong Kong is generally ok because we have a permanent residence there, but touring places… not so much. By stuff I mean stuff like scanners and tablets and so on and so forth. One good thing I’ve noticed on this trip (and really, it was before the trip actually started, fifteen freaking days ago) is that the secondary battery from my D830 is compatible with my 500m. I knew the power brick was compatible, but not this battery.
Well, I got graduation money from some of my relatives, so I bit the bullet and splooged some. Meaning, I bought figurines. Good grief I tried not to, but a friend of mine and his cousin took me to some cheap(er) places… so I couldn’t resist. I bought a small one for J (belated birthday present), but in retrospect he might have it already. Speaking of J, his birthday (I believe) falls on the same day as my dad’s…
Anyways, it’s really nice that this extra battery pretty much triples the battery life of this thing. I can actually watch some anime on the plane. I also like how modern power bricks can almost all take both 120v and 230v inputs. Quite handy for travelling. But this is the fifth paragraph and I’m overstaying my welcome. Hopefully some sort of graphic update will go along with this entry… eventually.
Ok, well, these are pictures of a papercraft I did a couple weeks ago. I don’t think they’ve been posted yet, so here we are.
