This is from a few weeks ago, I like my heightened state of anxiety but I was distracted. It's not the best written collection of thoughts but I think it still shares something important of my fear, anxiety and elation of being done.
So, my show is next Friday, I'm literally scanning my pages as I write this.I'm sitting in the ODU Library using a shitty scanner that's not quite big enough, I need the pages to look good so every pages gets scanned twice and I get to spend a bunch of extra time stitching every page together so the colors are level. Tonight will be fun.
Hell, my entire week has been a fucking ball. I spent all of last week slowly finishing everything, I'm currently at that point where I'm sleeping about an hour at a time every 5-7 hours. This is miserable. But the comics looks pretty damn amazing. For the most part. I'm ready to keel over. I swear.
I do have some positive thins to day about my past week. I got to see Mike Birbiglia at his Norfolk show at the Attucks, it was pretty great. I have a thing I wrote on Sunday about going to comedy shows and comparing seeing Godfrey to Paul and Storm and then Birbigs, I need to edit it a bit, hopefully chop it down by about 200 words and make it a bit more concise. I tend to not edit these past my shoddy spelling. I'm hoping to start writing and posting my essays and things and not just talking about art. I mean, I will always talk about art, I also spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about movies, books and TV shows and then writing lengthy analysies of them. I want what I post here to be a bit more professional and refined in comparison to my movie blog.
This is the post to say hat, :eyeroll: I'm all over the place trying to write this and while scanning.
Umm... I guess I'll keep this short until I get the chance to really update you all, but everything is finished. Oh, I was going to explain that.
Some of my markers are drying out so after a while my coloring on the background wavers a bit and there was no time to get all of Cinema properly colored so I'm planning on selling the lineart. Everyone who buys the line art version gets $1 off the color version if they choose to purchase that one also. I can't afford to take a complete loss on these books but I also want people to not feel like thy've been scammed buy paying my full price for the books twice. I need to find something else to do, I might just rock out to podcasts while I scan and just focus on that.
This shit's boring and reminds me how much I need my own scanner and a computer, not just a laptop, to get things done.
