That Was The Week That Was

09 February 2019

Perhaps unsurprisingly to some - including myself - I've not quite managed to maintain the daily blogging habit I had set for myself and we are only 9 days in to the #30DayChallenge!

However I have managed to blog 7 out of the 9 days so far and I can always go back and fill in the gaps later, tho I think what's probably more important is not to beat myself up too much and instead acknowledge the positives, after all progress not perfection is the goal and a daily-ish writing habit is better than no habit at all!

I thought I'd offer quick round-up of what's been happening this week in Prolix Towers by way of a progress check. Big wins this week have been inking and colouring the Godard In Love strip which has been very well received over on Instagram as well as completing the inks on Waiting For The Duke which I now need to colour in preparation for the forthcoming Kickstarter. I have thumbnailed the final page of story for the latest Atlas Unfettered installment and I'll crack on with penciling that, hopefully on Sunday afternoon. The other bit of progress for the Kickstarter has been deciding finally on what I want to do for the promo video, which is going to involve some animation, as if I didn't already have enough to do!

There's also been a lot of housekeeping going on, primarily here at with new web hosting and an upgrading of the Kirby framework that I coded the site in. I have almost finished migrating the old version of the site over to Kirby 3.0 and everything mostly works as it should altho there are still a few things left to sort out, mainly some elements in the CSS need a little tweak and I've still not completely got my head round how file uploads work in 3.0 but we'll get there eventually.

The only other thing I managed to get done this week was to redesign my convention banner which has been a long time coming, and so I should be having some fresh new branding on display ready for Dunfermline - assuming I manage the 7 hour journey in one piece!
