I got a call on Friday for a rush project that is due tomorrow. Since I was out of town all weekend at a cabin for my brother’s bachelor party, I’ve got a lot of work to do over the next 36 hours. I’ll be pretty much chained to my drawing board with my wife bringing me meals, an occasional backrub, and if necessary energy drinks to get me through the night. Jennie, you’re the best!
I’ll also be out of town Saturday through Wednesday of next week with two back-to-back family get-togethers, which means I’ve got a lot to catch up on before I leave. When it rains, it pours. Thankfully having a Macbook Pro and a Wacom tablet allows me to take my work on the road. I can’t draw nearly as fast on a Wacom as I can on my Cintiq, but it gets the job done. Also, my iPhone allows me to check e-mails pretty much anywhere, anytime (the other day I answered three e-mails while standing in the checkout line). Now all I need is a Modbook (a tablet Mac) and my studio will be completely portable. (I don’t mean to sound pretentious, I’m just a techno-geek).
My goal is to try and post something on this blog every weekday. That’s going to be tough this week, but I’m sure gonna try. I need to come up with something clever like Tom Richmond’s Dreaded Deadline Demon. In the mean time, thanks for your patience, and check back tomorrow.
