This is Steve the kidney bean.


I drew him for a mascot of the new newsletter thingy I'm working on called "Eli Ate My Kidney Beans." When I was a kid way back in 1995, I made these little newsletters for my friends. I still have most of them in a book form. But a lot of stuff has changed since then and I now have the internet so I can reach everyone around the world with my creations.


Anyway, I wasn't sure he'd come out this well when I scanned the paper I drew him on. But he looks exactly the way I drew him. Sometimes that doesn't happen. Things get all blurry and it doesn't work quite as well as I had hoped. Anyway, I've been working on this for about 4 days now. I finished page 4 last night. Most of my 1995 newsletters were 2-3 pages.


So what I do is type the words into M$ Paint, since I don't have that fancy program I learned how to use in business school. I don't even remember its name. But I do have a form of Photoshop, which is what I use to ensure all the letters are black and not different shades of blue and purple even though I chose to write them in black in Paint. And I also use it to touch up and color drawings, like Steve.


I want to finish the first issue before summer ends, so I chose August 1 as my self-set deadline. This will ensure that I have at least 4 pages done, though I want about 8. If I don't forget about this like other projects I create, I should.
