Hello. I’m sorry but I’m having severe technical difficulties with my computer due to Windows 10. Yesterday, sporadically, the pen for my Wacom Cintiq would stopped working in Adobe Flash and all other Adobe products. This morning, the pen has stopped working completely. It works outside of Adobe products though.
Right now, I can’t draw this week’s Johnny Bullet. I’m trying to use an old laptop whose screen is dead but still works with my Cintiq. It boots up once in a while. It’s problematic and right now, I’m feeling miserable. Drawing Johnny Bullet every week is very important to me. I had a cool page that I had started and was eager to post it today. I don’t know when that will happen now.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 keeps updating itself in the background although I don’t want it too. I don’t know what driver on my computer it has been messing with, since Microsoft will not allow me to log into my administrative account anymore. I have no control over my computer with Windows 10. Support is spotty with Microsoft and it’s a long weekend. Frankly, they care more about their public image when I complain about their crapware than helping me resolve my problems.
I found out that there was a 30 days limit before I could revert back to Windows 8. It’s too late now by a few days. I feel totally screwed up by Microsoft. I can’t even draw my own comic on my own computer now.
The sketch above was drawn in Illustrator a few weeks ago. I was testing it for comic art. It has some cool features for freehand drawing such as nice-looking brushes, but it’s not as ubiquitous as Flash for free hand illustration.
