We’re going through a bit of a heat wave at the moment, which made me remember one of my favorite songs by the Pillows. The title is a mouthful, but it translates to “White Summer and Green Bike, Red Hair and Black Guitar.” Love the imagery.
I had intended on having a write-up on ConnectiCon done by now, but I should’ve known better since I do most of my writing on weekends. I edited the photos for it already, so there’s a good chance I’ll have it up early next week. This week has actually been really productive for me otherwise: I’ve starting laying out pages for our next guide in InDesign, and I scripted, thumbnailed, and sketched pages for a 6 page comic that’s due at the end of the month. The project it’s for is under wraps so I can’t really offer any previews, but I did tweet some preliminary studies for it:

(Ignore the shoulder/arm situation. Blech) This is the first time I’m producing a comic in Photoshop, and I have to say that I might actually prefer it to Manga Studio, which had been my go-to all this time.
I have a meeting later with a friend to talk about future Culty stuff. I’m in the middle of brainstorming a way to help people import and play Japanese games without needing to know the language. A major litmus test for thinking up a new product or service is the question “would I personally use it?”, and in this case my answer would be a resounding yes. Let’s hope others feel the same way.
