I couldn't agree with all the above more. Having passion means you have something to live for and sometimes so much that you have something worth dying for. Who wants to be without that? The intensity can be wearing but I wouldn't trade it for anything!
Yeah Okat, same thing happily happened to me. Your right Maura about the Coberesqueness (new word). I was a huge Cober fan back in the 80s. Now I'm off to go revisit his stuff. Wonderful line work and subject matter!
LOL! Yeah my brain spilled out for sure. It wasn't pretty. There's nothing like an unwieldy deadline to sharpen the senses and push me beyond my expectations. I'm not really a comic artist so this was kind of new ground. I am so excited for all the stretchy learning stuff that went down on this project. Thanks for letting me share.
Thanks Maura and Jay. Yeah, without that deadline dilemma, I was going nowhere fast. I'm not used to a writing assignment like that. The dilemma became the premise and it wouldn't have worked out any other way. I had to bleed to succeed. Hahaa. Life is funny sometimes.
It was great to be reminded to just draw anything and everything instead of waiting for time to do more thought out stuff. Too much non drawing time elapses when we wait and the simple fun of just putting a pen or pencil to paper gets lost. Thanks for the post OKAT.
