bad nib, blathering about birds

.... and yes! It's another bloody bird strip. Auspices, strictly speaking, are the insides of birds usually, but I'm sure that I'm permitted a little poetic license here. Sorry, I'm talking about this week's strip. I used a different nib (thinner and harder than usual), and some very cheap paper, it's a good thing jpegs are so vague, the art's all over the place, and no amount of cutesy textures and gradients are going to cover up the thin, mean, hard lines .... I really should tidy up, so I can find some better paper. And buy some more of those nibs which work at the scale I'm in. But every time I tidy up I uncover so many things that need doing ... and every time I shop for nibs I fetch up getting different ones, new ones, exciting ones.

Oystercatchers' legs are red, by the way.

The previous entry sounds a bit odd because it's a pre-edit version of a website review, incidentally -- nothing exciting, just job-stuff. Yawn. Still, a better way to spend a blindingly grey-tired afternoon than writing educational pages about jobseeking for young people. Well, I say better, but it all needs to be done ....

And I got back from on holiday to find that my scanner had been replaced! With one that worked! ... though they still can't fix that problem with Outlook. "It's been very quiet while you were away," said Lalage (workmate). I apologised and explained that I had a full week of saying "fuck" stored up from visiting my Mum.
