Happy New Year and Best Wishes!

2013 has just started, and I contacted a Manga artist (*chichiriyuki) on deviantart and commissioned a Manga Page of a Call-Centre Grinder (a remake of page 1)

One fact is that I’m currently struggling to “master” Manga Studio – a new software that I purchased a month ago.

Another fact is that after finishing Season 2 of Call-Centre Grinder – I’m pretty much stuck with art-block and can’t even contemplate starting a new page (although I have all Season 3 scripted ready to go)

This page will be the fourth variation of the original page 1 – and I’m very excited about seeing another artist working with the characters I’ve created.

This is my first experience at commissioning an artist – I will tell you how the whole experience went and of course the result page

Otherwise, it’s been 2 years and 6 month that I’ve left my corporate job in a call-centre and started Freelancing (last month was May 2010).

At the end of 2012 a nice soul sent me 20$ through paypal for some artwork I posted long ago on openclipart.org – this made me feel, that somehow there still is hope.

I want 2013 to be focused on what makes me happy – supporting others (by commission or collaborations, donations, etc …), sharing my artworks, writing stories, drawing them, spending time with my family and having fun.

Yesterday KDE crashed big time, it was my fault I had many applications opened (gimp with various illustrations opened, firefox with many tabs, a text editor and a terminal with pyton and htop)  — it’s not the first time this happened, and the symptoms are always the same :

I try to switch from one application to the other, and then the system got really slow, the mouse cursor starts to lag, and the HD is grinding and grinding and even when I try to desperately open a console – usually the system is so slow I receive a message saying the 60s delay is passed and I’m stuck… It’s tough because I don’t know what is causing this recurring issue – it can happen anytime ; and because of the nature of this weird intermittent issue – I’m starting to get a bit

I thought optimizing KDE would help – it did because as the system use less space – it seems that the crash are less common.

The last thing in my control, is to be more disciplined and not to open too many application at a time (less than 3) – which is a bit frustrating, but actually help a bit because it means working in a less messy manner.

Anyway here’s another cat, I’ll do more – cats are cool, and they have this calming effect which I really need right now.

Sheila was feature in Episode 9 and was never seen again – because strictly speaking she’s not working as an agent but works in accounts
Nevertheless, when she walks through the agent’s floor – she always get noticed.
