1.  MST3k Fan Art – So, this is one of the more awesome things I’ve seen lately;  over at Deviant Art, FutureDami’s sharing some beautiful drawings of Mystery Science Theater 3000 characters.  I mean, beautiful. Here’s a couple of my favorites:   Here’s Fingal from my favorite episode, Overdrawn at the Memory Bank. Look at him tossing Identicubes all…

1.  Vanguard – Before my NES, I had an Atari 2600.  There was no shortage of games available for the 2600 (I was particularly obsessed with Montezuma’s Revenge), but the game that sticks out in my mind as my favorite at the time was one that I didn’t even own.  Our neighbors across the street,…

The Sketcbook Pro app I use on iPad for the illustrations worked great for planning layouts and initial designs, but it was a little unsatisfactory on the final layouts. I decided that it…
