on freelancing and stuff
Here's the thing about freelancing, if you have breadwinner anxiety issues like me and Jed. If you are TOTALLY freelancing, the way Jed is now, you can't relax and concentrate on ANYTHING ELSE because you constantly feel like you "should be" working, or looking for work. Because you SHOULD BE! Unless you are hugely successful and have a steady stream of reliable high-paying clients.
That's why Jed had to graciously bow out of the Henbanes Color-Off, and I have to graciously respect that. Good luck, Jed!
I took a screen shot of the little icon to prove that I am nearly finished with muy version of the Henbanes cover, and to open the challenge up to the first person who thinks he or she can whup me. First come first served.
CAVEAT: Of course this all hinges on eeTeeD's permission to send you hios copyrighted line art for you to color. eeTeeD, let us know what the rules are as far as that is concerned.
As long as I was screen-shooting, I also shot my whole little "to-do" list to share.
HENBANES: you just read about it.
ESCAPE: Dobbs' book cover, almost done! Hopefully finished in time for his birthday lunch at my house Sunday!
GAGSTA: next Nickelodeon Gag Station header, in progress.
ARTIE: icons/logo job for Benny. What up, Benny???
51BUZZARD: next EVERYTHING image
DAISY_005: My beautiful dog. I'm preparing the hi-res tiff for something special and secret
BLOG_TEMPLATE: Hey, guess what? Remember when I asked if anyone was crazy enough to archive the first 2 years of this blog? Colin is that crazy! So this is the template I set up for him. Tonight I'll see him at the Pioneer Valley Cartoonists Schmooze, and we'll swap notes, and he'll get his copy of The Henbanes! It's all just a big swirling ball of networking taffy!
TEENY08: In progress. Teeny Weeny in the Year 2525!
10: This is a page from "Easter Egg Fred" one of my children's books. I WAS working on it because it's my favorite, but I'm about to start working on "Toolbox Fred" because it is the easiest and fastest to finish, and I think will be the easiest to sell. This is jumping up to the TOP of the list very soon!
P2P: Re-design of panel-to-panel.net. More on that soon...
1: page one of an Illville comic I was working on for Runaway. I hate to abandon it... but, sigh, I must concentrate on children's books for now.
TAGDOG: It's gonna be that new Come Draw With Me activity I promised. I'll get to it...
There's more, but this is all I have on my desktop right now.
Who will accept the Color-Off Challenge??
