Thanks a lot for the compliment! And I totally agree with you concerning Inkscape. I've never really gotten used to the way Illustrator "feels". Been using Freehand MX for a couple of pics years ago and then somebody suggested trying out Inkscape.. which I did and haven't stopped using since (:
Hmm.. for once, commissions and shirts. Not that I've done or sold all that many but from what I've seen the digital stuff seems to sell better. Another (and more important) reason is that I simply enjoy putting together these vector pics. Totally different way of working. And in some ways it gives me more flexibility when I want to try out certain things that would be a pain to do on paper. This, however, doesn't mean that I think that digital is superior to traditional. Both got their pros and cons and can smoothly exist next to each other.
And even though I have to admit that the number of pencil drawings I've done lately is very small, I haven't given up on this medium. Quite the contrary. I've got several sketches laying about, waiting to be colored (with pencils mind you). There's older stuff as well as some brand new. And since at the moment I've got some (probably mouse-related) problems with my shoulder I'm spending more time drawing on paper, rather than clicking together vector stuff on the PC.
