I’ve been distracted by other stuff and haven’t written a blog yet, so of course, it’s starting to storm now and there is lightening. The grid is sketchy out here on a good day, so I’m leery of not getting things done in a timely manner when the weather is inclement.
Over the last few days I have been struck by several really great story ideas… for stories that have nothing to do with Between Failures. I write them down so I don’t forget, but it’s really sad that I don’t have time enough to make them in to actual comics. Or in some cases skill enough. These aren’t ideas that I’m in love with. They’re just ideas that would make entertaining comics if I had a team of artists to work with. So I’ve been lurking around looking for artists with skill but no direction to partner with. As an artist I know how terrible we can be about getting things done. It’s a big part of why art is looked down upon as a profession. The bulk of us are wildly unprofessional and it makes the few truly productive ones look bad. Long story short I haven’t really had any luck. At this point all I have to offer are good ideas and promises. What I need is money and contracts.
None of this stuff is time sensitive, but I’m kind of tired of sitting on all these things and not doing anything with them. If the last few years have taught me anything it’s that you have to will your dreams into being. No one is going to make them happen for you. The trick is having a been enough well to draw that strength from.
Anyway, none of that is important to any of you necessarily, but maybe you’re interested in what other plans I plan in the dark times of the day. XD
