Here’s Day 1 of Monster Madness, the challenge to draw one new monster every day during the month of March.
Yeah, it’s pretty bananas, I know.
Even though I’ve been feeling sick lately, I’ve also been feeling a creative slump. When I sit down at the drafting table to draw, I either can’t focus or I can’t muster up the energy draw the thing that’s in front of me.
It’s not just election bullshit, either; it’s the day job scheduling me so I have to get up at 3:30 am (which no sane human being should ever be obligated to do so). It’s trying to handle KickStarter, TWO Patreons, two webcomics, and freelance gigs on top of the day job. And trying to do all of that while trying to remember to eat and sleep. And shower. Grace bless whoever invented showers.
“But,” I can hear you say, “if you have all that shit to do, why blog every day? Wouldn’t that be more work?”
Yes and no.
Yes, on the surface, it seems like more work, but to me, it’s a good way to purge whatever is up in my brain part to make room in the brain part for new ideas. I’m doing this to kick-start the creative juices.
It’s also a good way to keep track of the work I’m doing, and bringing you along for the ride so maybe you can get some ideas.
As far as comics or works-in-progress goes, that’ll all be Patreon-exclusive. So instead, I’ll be blogging about ideas, stories I’ve wanted to share, new books and comics I’m reading, and I GUESS I’ll do list posts. But if I’m going to do a list post, it’s going to be how I want to do one, not just obligatory traffic-boosting clickbait.
If that all sounds like your cup of tea (and I’ll be writing about tea, also), stay tuned and come back tomorrow! (Maybe tomorrow’s post will be about tea… Maybe. Possibly.)
Thank you for reading.
You. Are. Awesome.
Based on that headline you’re probably thinking,
“Dude, you already stopped updating on Mondays. What’s up?”
Well the answer is,
I’m changing the update schedule again.
Before I announce the new schedule, I want to explain why I’m doing this. Continue reading “MORE Changes to the Blog”
