Comic book penciler and sociologist.
It's been GRUELING this month, I've been working on my very first 22 page one shot commission while still maintaining a full time job and contemplating a second project with Marvel 2.0 that I'm also very excited about. I never thought that I would be this busy - or this tired. I'm not sure if it's the pace that I'm working or just the hours of concentration - but I seem to be taking more naps at odd times. Any professionals out there, please weigh in, do you ever catch up on sleep? I mean, I don't even have a deadline and I'm still feeling like I'm under the gun!
I got a first look a fully inked page of my new project. I'm very excited about this, mostly because I am a born pessimist and I still need to give myself pep talks all of the time. I keep thinking this very nice writer will be emailing me any day now to tell me to throw in the towel. But, so far so good, he's been very kind and supportive. I really hope that the future brings more cooperative projects like the one I'm on now. I wish I could post more on Deviant Art, but there is so little time at the end of the day. My fingers are starting to get a hard edge from holding the pencil and my elbow is stiff. Occupational hazards, I guess!
And my friends keep asking me to go to movies and such. What? Social life? Are you kidding me?!? I've got stuff to do y'all! But duty calls, my son, daughter and husband are all working at scripts to break into the screenwriting business and I have to show my support some how. BTW, if you haven't seen Inception yet, GO SEE IT! Good movie, one of the best I've seen in a while. And I hate going to the movies.
Thanks to everybody who's watching, the support is very much appreciated! I've had over 1,000 hits on the DA since opening my account in May. I had never hoped for so much, but here we are, month three, still going strong. I will be posting SOMETHING at some point this month, as soon as my hands are free, to keep the hits coming.
Signing off till next month, tired but happy!
PS - Special thanks to Daniel and Jonathan for keeping my comic book pencilling hopes alive! You guys rock.
