Settling in, almost.
I was hoping to get my studio ready in the last few weeks but I had deadlines that need to get done NOW. So I'm working out of my living room, set up with my computer on drafting table and drawing at my dining table. Every now and then I pass by my future studio and eye it lustfully.
I spent the last hour or two tearing up the temp studio looking for my Wacom pen. I can't lose the tablet because its connected to the computer with a cable. I've lost the pen at my old place, but it was always on the computer desk. The computer desk is in pieces in the basement and my drafting table isn't that big.
It wasn't in my drafting table's pen catcher. Or in any of my baggies full of drawing implements. Not under the furniture. Not in the pen cup in the kitchen.
I did learn that there's a Microcenter location a few minutes drive from my new home (on Route 66, ie Ogden Ave). While on hold for a stock check I sat at my computer. As I puttered about it rolled out from under the Wacom tablet.
I'm really looking forward to having a studio. Hoping it happens by November.
In closing, congrats to Mike and Lynn on their new house! Thanks to Dave for the toffee coated chocolate coated macadamias, they're what malted milk balls should taste like. Thanks to Cole for the skull holding. Recommend everyone check out Sevilla's Tapas for Chicagoland's best tapas. With dance music! And looking forward to seeing Berwyn's Gin Palace Jesters soon.
