Hmm ... That's a Poser...

I want to do some sketches today during off moments, but unfortunately, I have no idea what I want to sketch. I could ask around for ideas, but I've found in the past that this doesn't generally receive helpful responses. People either say, "Uh, I dunno..." or they name off their particular single-minded fascination, which chances are, are way beyond the PG-13 rating of what I'm looking to draw, or I've drawn for them at least once already.

The sketches are for tomorrow's Holiday Grab Bag, so they should at least, if they aren't directly related to SJ, be vaguely furry in nature. I drew a cool development sketch of Faradawn yesterday that I'd like to flesh out into a full-blown picture, but an elvish archer is about as unrelated to SJ as anything could be.

As much as I love SJ, I must admit I do resent the way it uses up all the attention I'd like to pay to other things sometimes. I am not a speedy worker on anything, and the ever-hungry nature of comic strips means that if I don't work fast, then I must work fairly constantly. It's not the fault of SJ specifically ... it would be the same if I was doing NeverNever or Whistling In the Dark on a regular basis too.

I'd like to expand my repertoire; I'd like to spend more time writing, or doing larger furry art, or fantasy art, or even just catching up on my reading (I have way too many unread books on my shelf). And let's not forget that I'm now spending two evenings a week on my Kung Fu (the class is 1 hr 15 min, but I spend the rest of the evening recovering).

Bah! There's too much to do! And not enough time to do it in!

That drives me nuts. :P
