[!] Still Going

Don't worry, Skidmore Bluffs isn't dead. I'm just low on ideas. Why not take this moment to subscribe to Skidmore Bluffs via that neat little doodad over there on the right side of your screen. Or, if you're old school like me, you could slap your e-mail address into the follow-by-email box. That way you'll always know RIGHT AWAY when I get off my lazy arse and post. Even when you're on the pot, even when you're fast asleep. (Note: I have no idea what the google* privacy policy is regarding email addresses. Subscribe at your own risk.)

*I don't capitalize google for the same reason I don't capitalize god.

[139] Breakup Postcard #2

I occasionally write breakup postcards.  This particular one coincides with an actual break-up but it is far from being about my former lady friend.

[137] Carts

All kinds of new things!  The text is fully automated now so I can focus on writing.  The photo size is no longer limited to 400x400 (thanks Google) and there's that snazzy new logo again.  Thanks for sticking around guys.  Tell your friends that SB is back!

[136] Whimper

This comic made possible by a beta version of my auto lettering system. Also, look - that's the Tate Modern! I'm in London!

[!] Never fear!

Dear beautiful readers, I have something to show you:

var comicText = "thisisatest";

targetDocument = app.activeDocument; //make the currently active document the target
sourceDocument = app.documents.getByName("standard-text-2.psd");

for (i=0;i

activeDocument = sourceDocument;
copyLayer = app.activeDocument.artLayers.getByName(comicText.charAt(i));
activeDocument = targetDocument;

You're probably thinking: "what the hell, has Zander gone totally mad?" Well, yes - but that's not why I'm showing you this. That is the begining of a script that will make my lettering go from a hour long process to about a minute long process. I've been working on it all week.

I have received some really nice notes asking if SB will come back. It will. Please keep encouraging me - it helps to know that you guys are out there.

Love, Zander

[134] Crocodile

Ghost of the staircase got me again. I wish I had put the alt-text on the image instead of what's on there. It's funnier. Unfortunatly I'm really sleepy and don't feel like re-doing it without my wacom stylus :( Next week: actual lettering in my actual handwriting!!
