I have been busy the last few days colouring up the Rabigoodbegone illustrations for Ben Haggarty. All the biro line work is done and scanned in and I am now methodically working my way through the pile, colouring the drawings which are to be printed out at A3 Size. There’s 30+ illustrations for the project, so I am now very glad that the computer I was using before Christmas decide to give it’s last gasp, and forced me into buying something a bit more… substantial (4G RAM).
I have also updated my Computer Back Up Plan. There has been so much digital artwork going through 'Welding Industries' of late, that I was having waking nightmares of computer crashes and losing illustration work. I own a clunking big External Hard Drive which to operate has to be plugged in and powered up, which was always a bit frustrating to do. I invested in a neat little Seagate FreeAgent Go external hard drive which is the size of a Moleskine Diary and comes with software which makes backing up a lot less stressful, you just point it towards the folders you want copied and, touch wood, it does what it is designed to do. So that is two external hardrive back ups and I am still burning projects to Dvd as a Third and hopefully crash proof back up plan.
