0015: The Rough Life of an Artiste, Part Deux

Last updated on September 9th, 2014 at 10:45 pm

So here I am, finding out that I have something of an extension to get this calendar done. When I say “extension”, I mean until 6:30 pm tomorrow evening. When I say “until 6:30 pm tomorrow evening”, I mean that’s when the client wants the calendar in their hands, ready to deliver to the intended recipient. When I say that, I repeat what I said last night…

…I’m screwed.

Now, it’s not ALL bad. I did manage to wrap up those 12 sketches last night—now what needs doing is getting them digitally inked and prepped to be put into the “final package”. Just gotta keep focused long enough to do it, and make sure I get enough rest for a “cluster day” tomorrow, where I meet our Chief Information Officer at work for the first time, learn about our I&IT cluster and what we do, etc. Then have the bi-weekly OLA business meeting after dropping the goods off to my client. Yes, this is how I roll. I will earn the sleep I get tomorrow night.

I was thinking lately about the things I’d like to have as an artist.

THEN I thought about the things I already DO have and SHOULD use.

I think I’ll take some time to put both together and see if I can get some input from everyone on what’s good, what’s not and how you best see me using things.

But anyhoo, there’s a calendar to be made, and it’s not going to do it itself.

Peace y’all—keep drawing!
