I shall travel again for two weeks this monday, to Videy Island! It's a 1,7 square kilometers big and at about 10 minutes away from the port of Reykjavik. It used to be populated by vikings.
Now, the thing with viking Islands is, their internet access tends to not be that great. But worry not, for Dimensional42 (dimensional42.deviantart.com/) got me some premium membership and I'm currently preuploading some stuff!
So what will come?
The current Addictive Science short will be finished before I leave, after that I'll upload a few colour illustrations and then we'll come to a biggie. All my recent travels have been punctuated by writing a travel log... In comic form.
I've decided to upload them on deviantart. Long-time readers might remember me having had some down moments in my Vermont travel last year, and indeed some of the notes from back then were emotionally charged, which is why I restrained from uploading them for a long time.
My personal situation got a lot better, and I've mostly found what I want to do and started doing it. My first comic was now printed- more on that once it's officially come out!- and I've changed university courses to something more suited to me. I'm emotionally more stable. Thus, the situation as was described in parts of the logs isn't anymore, and I think I can upload it.
There will be the Vermont travel, the Montreal travel, and maybe my first Reykjavik travel.
I've put five pages on one longer one to make for an easier read on Deviantart.
I may have some internet access some days, but I'm not really counting on that. But now you know there will still be updates!
Other than that, I've won at a local paint contest. Now, these contests are usually organized by the city and are therefore focused on showing the city in a pretty, albeit boringly realistic, way. Guess what: the theme this year was fantasy! It was funny seeing much of the others struggling with it, as many are more-or-less professional painters who spent years just drawing realistic stuff and never dabble in fantasy. I went all out with a giant sea dragon and steampunk stuff, and VICTORY WAS MINE!
The painting was bought for a nice 1000€ by the city, which is great! I'll keep most of it one my bank account and some to pay for stuff on my travel. It's nice to know you have back-up money in case of something happening.
