Gneechtoon

Pfui!

No new artwork to post this morning! How disappointing. Oh well, life carries on.

I have downtime here at work, which I really should use to clean up my office or build some CF components or something useful like that -- but what I really want to do is slack off completely and draw in my sketchbook.

I don't know why I get these creativity waves; I assume it's just a natural manifestation of the artist temperament or somesuch. I do find it interesting that it alternates between art and writing, and when I get these Assaults By the Muse, it makes it very very difficult to do anything else -- like my regular job. It all seems trivial and pointless compared to the creative urge.

I know on an intellectual level that things like "keeping my job" are important -- but I can't make myself really believe it.

Thinkin' 'bout My Comics

As the post title suggests, I'm doing some thinking about my comics. The NeverNever artist search has turned up a handful of quite talented artists, but none of them quite click right so far.

I also periodically get a bug in my ear about dusting off Whistling In the Dark to do something with it, but y'know, I'm not really sure that WITD has anything special to recommend it. Sam is a fun character, sure ... but there are so friggin' many webcomics out there, the rest of the strip has to sparkle, too ... which it doesn't.

Hmm. *think, think, ponder, ponder*
