I'm making a few changes this week. (So what else is new?) I think the money/full-time writing posts are not very good, and I think the reason is because I'm trying to give a general overview for everybody else, and maybe what I really need to do is what I do here all the time: write about what I'm doing and why.
And I think I may go back to doing my art posts on Mondays. I've got some fun things I discovered in an old pulp magazine, and I'm too tired to sort out and clip and upload images -- so I'll do that tomorrow, if I have time.
A Round Of Words In 80 Days Update
Wednesday Day 31 - 60 minutes. Started in on an Illustrated Cap. The letter A, hand drawn and curly. I also spent about half the time playing with blending and layer masks in Photoshop, and watercolor brushes in Painter. I think I'm going to play with Painter's watercolor stuff to create a background for that ROW80 logo. (If it isn't colorful by the time you see this post, I did something else.)
Thursday Day 32 - 45 minutes. I was busier than expected, so even though I did do a garish color version of the ROW80 logo, I just did it by playing with brushes and effects in Photoshop at random. I'll keep playing with ideas for this.
Friday Day 33 - 15 minutes. Instead of drawing, I read and played with my cats. (One of the emergencies I dealt with earlier was a friend's cat's health. The news finally came out good! But I made sure I took extra time to play with cats.)
The fifteen minutes noted here is for prep work I did to see that I have a productive session Saturday. We'll see if it works.
Saturday Day 34 - 73 minutes. A day filled with kerfuffle after all. (Also, I wrote a blog post.) I had lots of thoughts for The Man Who Stepped Up (next on your hit parade) and a few new ideas for the current book, so I indulged in a little idea generation. I did manage to get about 700 words written in spite of it all.
See you in the funny papers.
