Hi Indian,
I understand! After latest episode, I rewrote from scratch the website and then took vacations. During vacations, I wrote a story. But after storyboarding the first pages, I thought I could do something better. So, I started studying another set of possibilities and now I'm into a new story and ready to start storyboard for it. It's a bit difficult to have visual and blog post about it. It will take another couple of month to finish it.

RIPPPPPP !!!!! 😐
I wish his cat dies instead.

Cool engineering project! Good reason for open source hardware, other people can manufacture different pen when tablet manufacture company never have time or resource for create.

Side question: ever try use tablet and pen in Inkscape? I curious how good it work. Draw use track pad is slow because draw line almost never correct first time, always need fix line.

Yeah, we're done with wishing discomfort or pain on others, whether in jest or intentional.

Hey Châu! Thanks :)

> ever try use tablet and pen in Inkscape?

I did! I had a commission in the past for a brand of teenage clothes; featuring a design for Anime characters. The marketing departement wanted to print them on giant size; like 2,5 meters high for a booth at a convention. I delivered them in vector using Inkscape and the inking was done with the calligraphy tool and a tablet. It wasn't super comfortable for me, but also it was back in 2008 xD

Since this time, I haven't really tried again. I'm following the work of , very detailed inking done with Inkscape; you'll probably enjoy (especially the making of published around oct 2020).
