well, my computer--an old lenovo laptop--crashed (the screen went dead), so i'm currently using my girlfriend's old mac. unfortunately, it doesn't have my files nor any of the programs i normally use for my art work on it, which explains why i haven't posted anything for a while. and, i just got a call from the computer repair shop telling me that they've had to special order a part they need, so it won't be ready till sometime next week. of course, what with the (slim) possibility of hurricane joaquin barreling up the chesapeake bay as far north as baltimore, i may be out of commission for a while longer. we'll see. awfully sorry about this. i've really grown used to creating and posting my work here on da on a much more frequent basis. as a matter of fact, i almost feel like i'm going through withdrawal. but i'll still keep checking in from time to time.
so everyone, take care. and if you think you might be in the hurricane's path--START MAKING YOUR PREPARATIONS NOW!!! i'm not kidding. having lived through various disasters before, it doesn't hurt to be over-prepared. i'm about to head out to the store right now and stock up on a few essential items. see you soon?
