Here’s an image for page 11 of a safety-themed coloring book commissioned by Positive Promotions.  Why is it so much fun to draw children behaving badly?  In this case, we have a girl (accidentally) kicking a boy that walked too close to the swings, a boy pushing in front of the line, and two boys horsing around and playing too rough.

Here’s an image for page 10 of a safety-themed coloring book commissioned by Positive Promotions.  This one covers the subject of stranger danger.  While there may very well be nothing nefarious at all about this friendly man in his unmarked panel van, it’s suspicious and he could be dangerous.  Better for the kids to stay away and not risk it.

Here’s an image for page 9 of a safety-themed coloring book commissioned by Positive Promotions.  This one is my favorite.  It’s a maze with various locations in the neighborhood.  There’s the library, post office, a park, grocery store, and elementary school.  There’s also a little line of traffic.  You’re supposed to get the girls to school.

Solution for Bent Wacom Cintiq 3-in-1 Cable Connector

I thought I’d posted about this already, but I can’t find it.  So, I guess I didn’t.

Okay, so if you have a wacom cintiq (not the wacom cintiq pro) you may have noticed that the connector on the 3-in-1 cable that inserts into the screen tablet bends very easily.  You can destroy the flimsy thing just by bumping it.

This is a tremendous problem since replacement 3-in-1 cables are $50 or more and usually out of stock.

First, I can’t tell you how to fix the cord that’s already bent.  As far as I know, it’s a lost cause and you’ll have to buy a new one.  Sorry.  But I can help you so you won’t destroy the new one.

Buy this:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/530082285/wacom-cintiq-cable-support-adapter

Choose the 2.0 version because it has a little more support for the cord, holding it in place really solid.

It’s basically a 3D printed adapter that you snap onto you cintiq and thread your cord through as you plug it in. The thing holds the cord pretty solid so that even fairly rough handling isn’t going to bend that easily-bent metal end. It installs in a way that’s removable, in case you need to transport your cintiq or something. However, my cintiq never leaves the vicinity of my PC, so I used some electrical tape on the back to get it really solidly adhered. It’s not going anywhere now. It completely solved all my cintiq flimsy cable problems.

I bought mine awhile ago and it had a wacom logo in it which I thought at the time they probably weren’t supposed to be using, since it’s an after market part.  The version they’re selling now is the same thing, but has a bad robot logo instead.  I think he may have been asked to stop using the wacom logo.  Anyway, it’s cheap and completely solves the problem, so go buy one if you own a cintiq.

Here’s an image for page 5 of a safety-themed coloring book commissioned by Positive Promotions.  This shows a scene where a police officer and an EMT have responded to the scene of an accident.  The EMT is checking on a boy who is lying on the ground next to a crashed bike and the officer is interviewing an elderly witness.  An ambulance and police car are parked in the street and there are two apartment towers in the distance.  I imagine the boy lives in one of those towers.

In hindsight, I think I may have made the ambulance too narrow.  Hopefully it’s not too apparent.
