The Double-Edged Blade of Inspiration

Watching and reading all this Love Hina has really inspired me, and is really helping me sort out my thoughts, feelings, and priorities about my creative work -- not just in terms of Suburban Jungle but also my long-term artistic/writing career. I've really been banging out the artwork at night, at a speed and level of quality (given that speed) that I've been quite pleased with.

The problem is, I don't become UN-inspired when I'm at work -- which makes my 8 hrs at Circle Solutions a looooooong drag of time. I feel like I'm at school again, bored out of my skull and staring at the clock, or possibly a kid in the back seat of a car, going, "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

(Circle: "Don't make me turn this work day around, mister!")

I've managed to sneak in bits of scripting and a little sketching here and there around projects at work, but even that has to be done in small doses and on the sly. I want to jump in and do FULL IMMERSION CARTOONING, dammit!

Le sigh. Only an hour and 13 more minutes 'til quitting time...
