An Open Letter to My New Tablet

tablet

Dear Tablet,

When I went to upgrade my phone the other day, I saw you sitting on the shelf, covered in fingerprints and possibly biohazardous germs. Initially, I was unsure if I wanted to own you or anything like you.

Sure, a lot of people I knew had one like you. From what I saw, though, tablets like you did the same function as my phone, only larger and more cumbersome.

How wrong I was to judge you.

I decided to get you, at first, to have something to show off my art at conventions: you had a larger screen than my phone, but were more compact and easier to wield than my laptop. Plus, you didn’t sound like a jet engine in take-off or overheat so much you could bake my knees off.

But then I got some apps on you…

And then I started writing my comic scripts on you….

And then I discovered you were the perfect device to read digital comics on. Comixology, webcomics, it didn’t matter! Your high resolution screen and fast internet connection meant I could read as many of my beloved comics as I wanted.

You have done wonders for my reading and writing time. And I look forward to spending more time with you, you lovely slab of technological wizardry.

Sincerely,
Kelci

Thank you for putting up with my open letter. As a reward, here’s a warm-up sketch I made recently.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you on Tuesday.

Validation’s Book Cover…In Progress

Please excuse how late this update is today, but I’ve been drawing up a storm.

Most recently, I’ve been drawing up some ideas for Validation‘s book cover:

…And I threw in a little Rubber Duck: The Reckoning (I still want that to be a real movie).

These are just some initial ideas for the book cover, front AND back. Christian and I haven’t reached a decision yet.

I kept them loose and stick-figure-like because I just want the idea across. I’ll save the tight rendering for the final choice.

What do you think? Which do you prefer?
