The comic will be a day late, but at least I got a parenting story out of it.
Last night while I was busy doing non-comic things, and my digital tablet and photoshop sat unused, my 3-year-old daughter decided to snuggle in, put the tablet on her lap, and proceed to color all of Blank It purple. It would have been adorable (well, it was), except I have a shortcut key on my tablet for ‘Save’. So she undid an hour or so of work with her little project.
I didn’t get mad at her, I praised her for artwork, but I didn’t have enough time to set things right, because my little one has to be to the doctor this morning, and I wasn’t going to do another 4-hour-sleep night like last week.
Maybe this sounds like an excuse, but I’m actually just proud that my kid figured out the tablet on her own. There’s a chance yet that she’ll follow in her dad’s digitally artistic footsteps.
