Hello everyone! I am taking a serious break from art for a while because I am in gradschool. My days and nights are filled with books about art, instead of making art for books LOL. When I finish my Art History Master's, I'll let you all know!!

But, here's the downlow:
1) Affordable: I bought mine second hand off Marktplaats.nl for 350 euros (about 400 US dollars) and I like it a whole lot more than the Cintiq12 I paid full price for (1,000.00 US).
2.) Real Estate: It has a HUGE screen and I like that a lot!
3.) Light Weight: it does NOT weigh a ton. It does not take two people to move it and install it on a desk. It's a lightweight 19" screen and easily floats on the monitor arm I've installed it on. The plastic does feel cheap, but I have no plans on dropping it on the floor or throwing
I just got a new Bosto Kingtee... well, that's not entirely true. I found it second-hand on Marktplaats.nl at a very deep discount.
I had been aiming for a used Cintiq 21, but all the ones I found were roughly 1,000 for a broken stand or a scratched up surface. The Bosto on the other hand was in like new condition for about 400.00 US dollars. It had no stand, but that was okay. I ordered a used ergotron monitor arm off eBay for it for about 45.00 US dollars.
So far I like it. It has taken some getting used to. The colors are a little off, but certainly brighter than my old Cintiq 12w. It's easier to adjust them through the graphics card
Very happy to see you haven't stopped updating American Gothic Daily. Was one of my favorite comics, and I'm excited to see the reboot of it, and the comparison pages. Thank you for continuing such a cool webcomic!
Don't get down... I think the comic/art world has changed a lot since I first started in 2006. Back then it was easy to start a project and get lots of interest. Now the internet is flooded and it's near impossible to get readers unless you really heavily advertise and find a niche group.
I'd like to see more of your work. You've got a very accessible style with a heavy dash of cheerfulness. We need that in the world.
