[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
