So long, gnomic alien geek-boy


This old 30-second doodle (on a Post-It™ note) of some kind of dwarf extraterrestrial munchkin has been a reassuringly familiar totemic presence, adhered (in my direct eye-line) onto the side of my G4 for as many years as that tower has stood beside my monitor. He is going to be retired later on today when I migrate over to my shiny new MacBook Pro laptop. The time has finally come for me to leave the comfortably familiar down-home ambience of Apple System 9 and enter into the gleaming marble-floored atriums of OS-X. So, I have lots of new Mac-skills to learn in the coming weeks, as well as crash-immersion into the latest versions of all the core creative applications. Should keep me out of trouble...
