|Mar. 13th, 2014 04:44 pm Dubai: Emirates Lit Fest 2014|
I've been to the desert! And taken far too many glam sand photos! 4 comments - Leave a comment
Also, I have met a camel. Did you know their noses are so hairy? When I got an invitation to come out to Dubai for the Emirates Festival of Literature, I talked with writer Philip Ardagh, who'd been in previous years and he said, 'YOU MUST GO, IT IS AMAZING' (or something to that effect). And Geraldine McCaughrean told me such intriguing stories from her visit that I was absolutely bouncing with excitement to see if all myself.
And it WAS amazing. I think the authors of books for adults were slightly surprised just HOW popular the children's events were! The kids there - both Emirati and expat - were falling over themselves to get books, read books, talk about books, write and draw. My Oliver and the Seawigs co-author Philip Reeve went out, too, and we got completely caught up in the excitement.
(Read the rest of the article here.)
I mean, how many times do you get to see writer-illustrator Sally Gardner and journalist Kate Adie riding a camel together?

|Feb. 28th, 2014 07:39 pm Help finding an answer for a videogame|
Hi, I bought this manga-drawing "game" for the 3DS:3 comments - Leave a comment
The problem is that, the extra features (screentones, colours, text, etc.) don't show up while "playing" but they do show up in the tutorials and the examples on their website. The only options I have are pen width and pen opacity. I tried posting in some forums and on Tumblr asking for help, but no one ever replied. I think the problem is that, in addition to not being in English yet, the software only came out something like last month. I thought they might unlock if I completed all the tutorials in the game, but it didn't work.
So I was hoping if someone could either try and find the answer to unlocking the stuff in some Japanese forums/tutorials that discuss it, or if you could make a post for me somewhere asking about it? It might even talk about this on their official website, I don't know since I can't read that much Japanese...

Oh awesome! Looks like there are still some fine folk on my flist. How are you all?
I will probably start posting on LJ again. I miss the verbosity allowed in it, tumblr moves so so quickly and oftentimes it feels like I am talking into a void. Will still be tumblring of course, but yea sometimes I feel like talking to myself and LJ is still best for that.15 comments - Leave a comment
Anyway, I have a tonne of OT work from the office to finish up at the moment, so will be back shortly.
Good to see you all again.
