Weekly review: Week ending March 15, 2013

Still lots of sniffles, but at least I got to bike a few times this week! =) This week involved a lot of illustration, from drawing comics to designing hand-drawn presentations to making a poster. Fun! I’m starting to get the hang of this.

Oh, and I got my UK visa, so all systems are go for my trip to the Emacs Conference on March 30. (Emacs!) Well, almost all systems – I still have to make my talk!

Next week: even more drawing!
