Off Topic / Graphics tablet.

I'm not even sure if I am calling it the right thing.   My 13 year old girl is showing promise as an artist, and she is wondering about a pad that she can draw on for the laptop or pc.  She had an ap on her tablet but it seems pretty limited. Is there something cheap that she can learn the ropes of digital drawing?
Any suggestions appreciated.

Off Topic / Rugby WC

Surprised that this has not reared its head yet on the board. I am not a huge sports fan, but Rugby is such an entertaining game. I should also point out that, Irish boarder will understand, that the masochist in me has me following Mayo football for years, and to watch a team actually win something is an even better feeling.

Anyway, this World Cup has been hugely entertaining so far, the matches are on at reasonable times, the weaker teams have certainly upped their games, it has resulted in far more entertaining games in the group stages.

The two big talking points, I didnt think much could top SA and Japan, and then the Wales and England game came along. Fabulous viewing as a neutral, although Ill admit, (first time for everything) I was cheering Wales by the end of the game.  Ireland's flying under the radar a bit, just doing whats expected, the next two games will tell a tale.

Anyone going to this?
 I see Mike and PJ are booked in, Ill be there too flogging Hibernia's wares.
 If anyone from the board is going stop by and say hello!

Books & Comics / Proto Slaine
« on: 06 December, 2013, 10:23:13 PM »
I had hoped to do something about this newspaper strip called 'Nuada of the Silver Arm', a small collection maybe, but Jim Fitzpatrick isn't keen at the moment.
I have the complete strip but it in very low resolution so not really usable for viewing on screen.

The following is a small piece I have put together for the Hibernia page on Facebook it may be of interest to some here, I'm not putting it up on Facebook just yet, until I can source a better copy of the comic page.

'2000AD's Slaine is 30 years old this year, Pat Mills created the strip drawing largely on Irish mythology and having the cream of British and Irish artist working on it have ensured its popularity.
It's not the first time that Irish Mythology has been adapted to the comic form. Starting in October 1975 in the Sunday edition of The Irish Independent, a new comic started called 'Nuada of the Silver arm' began. It was written and drawn by renowned Artist and Photographer Jim Fitzpatrick. 
It was in B&W and featured the character 'Nuada'. Nuada is one of the principle players in the Mythological cycle of Irish Mythology, he was the King of the DeDannan's as they battle first the Fir Bolg and then the Formorians for ownership of Ireland.
Fitzpatrick draws on these myths and brings to life these ancient stories, very much in a Marvel Conanesque style.

The strip last a little over 20 episodes and it was cut short by the arrival of a new editor who took a dislike to it and discontinued it, and it was never completed.
It was however the inspiration of Fitzpatrick's brilliant book's The Book of Conquests and The Silver Arm, which tell the tale of the first and second battle of Moytura, and my favourite, the Transformations of Tuan.
