I turned 40 today. We celebrated yesterday, just us Tops and a few friends. As we are all a bit tired, and I’m slightly nauseated because my eyes don’t match with my contact lenses (I guess they’re the ones having a mid-life crisis, changing half a dioptre back and forth in two months time), this was quite enough.
One of the presents was a lovely little second-hand pen-and-tablet thingy to draw with on the loads of pictures I’ve taken for just that purpose. This is my first try – I like working with the pen, it certainly beats using the mouse. I can’t see myself going all digital, but I like taking pictures and then enhancing the figures I see in them.
When my eyes are better (i.e. when I get the right contact lenses), I’ll do some of these drawings whenever I take a little pause from working on the novel.
