Hello everyone! I am definitely having a lot of fun with my new wacom cintiq. It's crazy! I'm still trying to figure out a workspace arrangement that will be efficient, but drawing with it is phenomenal. Late last week I had the pleasure to be interviewed by CFRU 93.3's (in Guelph ON) Sarah Mangle for her show called : These Things that People Make.
It was a lot of fun and Sarah had some really interesting questions for me and I even did a part of a reading! You can check out more of her shows here at CFRU's main Archive (incidentally my interview is Thursday : 2010-06-10 episode at 10am.)
It was a 30 minute interview that I've downloaded and split into 3 parts for you to listen to if you don't want to stream it:
I "definitely" said one word a few to many times... but at least the "umm" count was kept to a min. I am in need of some public media speaking classes I think, but I also know I could have done much worse.
On the media relations note, this morning I was in a short (very short) feature done on our local TV stations morning show - Breakfast Television. I'm trying to track down a recording I can post here as well.
I also had a school visit yesterday of which I will post more on as soon as I get some photo's organized.
For now I will leave you with the results of my first drawing attempt on my cintiq.
Colors are a bit off of my normal monitor, but there are lots of things to figure out still and I'm not too worried about it.
