It's the Great Pumpkin, GC

Now we see GC's solution to the candy shortage he created last week. Actually, this cartoon sort of created itself. When I was laying out the second panel, the use of these characters just sort of suggested themselves. (Yes, I know there are more holes in Charlie Brown's costume. I wanted to keep a few things different.)

This week's cartoon almost didn't make it as once again scanner difficulties reared its ugly head. This scanner has been faithfully serving me for the last few years and I hope it will last a few more. I don't really relish the choices in shopping for a new scanner that can handle A3 sized originals. It's a choice between the manufacturer of my current scanner and the competitors, all of which cost at least 10 times as much. SUre, it'd be nice to have a little extra support when I need it (the drivers haven't been updated in 4 years and the link to them is currently broken) but is that really worth $1800?

As Charlie Brown would say, "Good Grief!"

(Sorry about the delay: Having inexplicable problems with blogger this morning.)
Very nice strip -- very logical! AOL disc = a rock! Exactly.
Well, I'm sure you can find something cheap on eBay... Unless you are anti-ebayshopping.

But hey, what do I know? I'm just a robot.

I uninstalled my scanner since I started using a tablet. I have less control over my lines, but its so much cleaner and quicker.
I dont know if I win or lose.
I looked on Ebay for large format scanners, but only for that one manufacturer. Since all of the others come in that ridiculously expensive category, I've been afraid to look. Might be time to overcome my fears...

I still find that I like having some reference when I'm drawing, so I still rough out my page in pencil and scan it in before doing the finished product in Illustrator.
