A Potpourri of Thoughts!

Itâ€™s late, and my mind is awhirl with the dayâ€™s activities, so I present the only thing I can in this state: A potpourri of thoughts.
Please vote for us on Top Web Comics! Itâ€™s easy, quick, does not require you to sign up, and I put up a free voting incentive image every weekday. I know you want us to succeed, so please vote daily!
Our friend JGray of â€œMysteries Of The Arcanaâ€ is overseeing the LGBT Webcomic Charity Art Auction, and there are still two days left to bid. Two pieces in particular are wide open, being this and this. It would be a shame for these pieces to go unpurchased!
Last night, a friend of mine asked me about the common modern practice of darkening pencils and skipping inks in comic books. Iâ€™ve gotten so used to this style that I barely noticed darkened pencils anymore. I still prefer good, old-fashioned inking, preferably done by hand, but I also have to admit there is a real charm to the work of John Cassaday, as seen in Planetary. In short, Iâ€™m still undecided, although I do not see myself ever going from pencils to color like that. My pencils are pretty clean, but Iâ€™m so darn picky!
On the flip side of that coin, lately Iâ€™ve considered eventually going all digital with the comic. It would certainly save me time. If I did, I would probably want to go the Cintiq. Those are quite expensive, so I do not foresee making this leap any time soon.
Well, thatâ€™s enough for today!
