Welcome to March! I decided that it was high time I was involved with Illustration Friday again, and so I spent a few hours this morning working on an illo for it. Then painter crashed on me. I am a crash-a-phob and so normally save every 15-20 minutes. Normally. In the last year I have been blessed with a machine that has never fully crashed and only had a few programs crash less times than the number of fingers I have. I love my Mac. So, I tried to look at the positive in this situation, being thankful that it didn't crash on a contract job. Then I decided (after opening an earlier saved version of it) that it basically sucked anyway. So I started over and did this this afternoon.



Take care,

-Mike
