Argh, I can't stand to see those Curmudgeonish Musings here one more second. :fork: Begone!

I've been so busy...which is good, after a really slow start this year. But I've fallen out of the habit of drawing, which is very bad.

Work has been coming in from my wonderful, loyal clients :heart:; I started a new business (publishing a directory--out of my comfort zone but still, it should be interesting.)

I have a million ideas for art projects but I'm so weary by the end of the day I can't seem to do anything but sit and imagine cool things to create. Ahhhh well.

I sort of missed not being at Comic-Con this year...also didn't really miss it, since with just a little effort I can remember vivdly the sense that I really, really needed a break from it.

Anyway--hope all you cool kids out there watching me are enjoying your summer.

  • Reading: Pillars of the Earth, but not liking it much
  • Watching: My adopted injured goose in the back yard
  • Drinking: Riesling

It's when you DON'T realize that you haven't drawn that you should worry... (wait, when I think 'bout it ...aghhh!)

Yeah, I kinda miss it too. The premiere screenings with enthused audiences and panels, the cool toys and collectibles and displays. But lately, it's getting really..dense. A claustrophobes nightmare. Lotsa ppl shoulder to shoulder. And sensed ego's and attitudes akin to turf wars downstairs. But I think it's really the lively and enthused attendees and those who feel justifiably comfortable donning meticulous costumes that still make it shine. For those few days, yeah, you can be a Superhero, Villain or anything you want and get smiles, compliments and asked for posed photos. (Theyre gonna have to make the Convention Center larger just for Comic-Con!)

Yeah, the costumes are great entertainment. :) So is some of the other stuff...but all in all I'm glad I gave it a miss this year, if for the money-savings alone. I think I need to check out some other largish cons for a little variety, once budget permits.

Summer, it's HOT!!!

All of those ideas will build up but you'll be able to get to them soon enough.

I hope you're right about those ideas building up. If not, I just might explode! :explosion:
