Sorry, everyone but my illness is making it hard to produce the comic so it will be slightly delayed. I’m hoping to have it finished tomorrow, but I can’t give you an exact time. Please accept my apologies for this delay, which is totally out of my control right now.
There are complex parts to what I’m producing, so the comic that should have been up yesterday is still being worked on. I hope when you see it you will understand why.
Thank you for bearing with us.
Since the beginning of The Life of Nob T. Mouse in 1996, I have been using a Microtek Phantom 336CX scanner to get the hand-drawn comics onto my computer. I bought the scanner around 1995 to make producing my first comic,Portly Stoutmaster’s Journeys, much easier. It has worked flawlessly until a month or two ago, when the drive belt started failing.
I am sorry to say that it has now failed almost completely. As a consequence, the sketches I have produced for both comics (Nob Mouse and All over the house) cannot be ported onto the computer for inking and colouring. This is making comic production difficult.
I will get back on track as soon as I can but in the mean time, please forgive the delay; which is totally out of my control right now.
While this does not pertain to The Life of Nob T. Mouse itself, our resident artist and co-writer, Zoë Robinson, won an Editor’s Choice Award at Suite101 yesterday for her article on The Webcomic List Awards, which are running at the moment. You can find the article in question here.
