I have never owned an Apple product. I have used several. I used the Apple2 in the summer of 1986 at a school program. I used several Macintosh computers in the computer labs during art school between the years of 1993-1997. One of my college roommates owned one during that time and I played Myst [...]
What is digital art? Digital art is artwork done in whole or in part using a computer. The artwork can be graphics, photo editing, drawings, paintings, or even 3D modeling. Some digital artists do the entire process with their computer. Others sketch thumbnails or rough drafts with pens or pencils before scanning them in to create their finished work. Still others scan in completed drawings or paintings and then use software to enhance the image or adjust the colors and intensity.
In the grand tradition of the High Court of Herringia, I would like to invite you all to join me in wearing khaki shorts, a t-shirt and crocs tomorrow to celebrate the official Turning On of the New Theme here at KarlHabegger.com. As you may or may not be aware, I have been posting my sketches, artwork and ramblings at The Replacement Komics for several years now. As part of an effort to organize my online life, I have decided to get rid of a few of my former domains. This website is the new home of all things Karl with the exception of merchandise. When I am able to offer books, t-shirts, and autographed toothpicks in the future I will be using the Fishvan imprint for those efforts.
A long term dream of mine is coming to fruition. I’ve written and illustrated a very small volume of short stories, comics, and poetry.

There’s a new sheriff in town, or at least the same old sheriff is planning on making some changes. Don’t be surprised to find me posting things like this: PARE4E5XPD7S — That may look like gibberish, but in reality it is perfect nonsense.
We picked up Lucy at the Athen’s shelter yesterday. She is marked like a miniature pinscher, but smaller like a chihuahua. She is a hoot.
Tonight I ate the home-cured gravlax that I made following the recipe I found at I Eat You. It was delicious. Unbelievably good. If I don’t die of food poisoning, I will call it a success.
This being my first foray into the world of self-prepared-uncooked fish, (…okay, that isn’t quite true – I once dried some catfish in our food dehydrator, effectively ruining it, but I didn’t eat that…) I went ahead and photographed it for your viewing pleasure. Please note that my photography is almost as amateurish as my cheffery. And wordsmithery.
Now that you have a picture, if it kills me, you know what to go after. Avenge my death!
