So I’d finally done it—got all of the work-in-progress pieces I had lingering around over the years, put them together in one file so I could hack away at turning them into complete pieces, and I was back in the zone. Inking daily, fleshing out my ideas—I was planning to be able to get a ton of stuff done this year, and be able to develop so much greater as an artist.
But then, on the way to the FanExpo 2007 comic convention this past Saturday, a can of pop exploded in my duffle bag, damaging about 150 pieces of work-in-progress that were sitting in there. I was extremely P.O.’ed and saddened that years of work went down the drain in mere seconds.
But now… I’m not discouraged, but there’s a lot of work that’ll need to be done in order to try and save the years of work.
I do have a bit of a plan, though, and we’ll see how it works out.
Wish me luck, y’all.
