SCS Sketch Challenge #246

I am feeling so uninspired! I have spent the last 10 days fighting with my computer trying to get My Digital Studio to run. I finally got a response from SU this afternoon telling me that I had a corrupt font, but they didn't know which one or how to fix it. Not much help, but a starting point. I began my troubleshooting journey searching the web for insight. I do alot of desktop publishing and so I have quite a few true type fonts installed. In my web travels in search of an answer, I came across an explanation - java doesn't like tt fonts and MDS uses java! I had to get rid of all but the necessary fonts, reinstall java and MDS and cross my fingers. Well it runs now, but all my fonts are gone. I am worn out from this battle! I also don't know whether I will keep it installed. I love my fonts and the flexibility they give me when I'm designing dtp projects! We'll see. Anyway, I thought I'd try today's sketch and see if I could break myself out of this funk. Not too successful, but I thought I'd show it to you anyway.

Don't judge me too harshly - I'll do better next time! Thanks for visiting today.
