We’re in Tropical Storm Elsa’s path, bad enough. Shortly after Elsa arrives there’s a “cold front” coming through – it won’t be cold enough to make me happy but 80 degrees is much better than 97 degrees with high humidity. A cold front means more storms, though. Probably.
Today I’ll be doing storm prep (again) and tonight I’ll be hoping for the best. Thought I’d share this vector thing while there’s still power. I made it using the excellent Amadine app. Yes, I’m learning more about the tools and what’s possible with vectors. And yes, I still have a long way to go. But there’s an irritating aspect to vector art (other than its freaky sleek edges): I’m constantly tapping! Tap! Tap! Tap! Everything needs a tap! It’s so SLOW!* Sure, I’m not good at it yet but faster tapping isn’t the answer. I want less tapping.
I don’t have the patience for it, so far. Right now it reminds me of knitting a pattern where you have to keep changing needles or yarns, or putting stitches on other needles and then knitting them off those needles onto other needles. GAHHHH!! You can get faster at that kind of knitting but it’s still aggravating. Vectors are like that. For me, anyway.
Maybe I’ll change my mind but not today. Elsa’s stopping by.
*Just to be clear: Amadine runs fast! The slowness I’m talking about is the added time all that tapping adds. It’s distracting, too. Draw, tap. Draw, tap. Draw, tap. Move, tap. Draw, tap. Move, tap. Draw, tap. Over and over and over again.
