No Days Off





I somehow managed to finish my storyboard 3 days early, but my luck being what it is, on my first day off I awoke early in the morning to the sounds of cranes and heavy machinery right outside my window. Scaffolding went up and all of a sudden I had construction workers looking into my apartment. Looks like I have 6 weeks of this to wake up to.

Also, the battery on my laptop has started to swell so I am hesitant to use it for too long. 

My solution? Spend all of my days off at work. I finally got Photoshop installed on my work computer, so I managed to do the doodles above and work on other drawings too. I don't really want to admit it, but I was way more productive at work than I would've been at home.

Real Life Doesn't Have A Ctrl+Z

Another one that started in Storyboard Pro after a long-ass work day.

I haven't been able to draw for over a month, I get the odd day off here or there which I spend in front of my cintiq, but nothing seems to come out. In order to work my way around this art block I've started to dabble with inks, first with fountain pens, then with dipping nibs and most recently with a brush. I suspect that this is just an excuse to spend money and not really addressing the problem, especially since I seem to fuck up every second or third line and real life doesn't have a Ctrl+Z.
