I’m told that to succeed in this blogging thing that I should update my blog regularly enough to keep people’s interest, but not so often as to annoy them.
The problem at the moment is that I haven’t blogged in a number of days, but I’m busy working on many things that can’t be discussed. So while I’m annoyed not to be able to go ahead and tell anyone who might care what I’m up to, at the same time I’m pleased with the various items on my to-do list that are shaping up nicely.
I will go so far as to mention that I am proceeding with my revisitation of Andrew Loomis. My studies every evening when I get home are very likely fueling much of the creativity that I’m feeling when actually in the studio each day. But I’m not ready to scan the sketchbook pages that have resulted–not yet.
I will also say that I’m cooking up some items with co-conspirator, Mike Leonard, that we’re both very pleased with. We’re having fun taking on some of the “Big Guns” of various mythologies (both modern and not so modern). Throwing them in a blender and seeing what results. (Not unlike the “Car-tuner” that Joel and the ‘Bots once offered on the invention exchange of MST3K).
The results of these mental gymnastics will be available for public consumption sometime soon, I hope. In the meantime, I’ve been asked to write a short article for a planned publication that will appeal to the indy comics crowd, so more on that in the future as well.
Now, I have to go work on the many items that need to be completed before I do my Christmas shopping.
