I thought I should ring in the new year with yet another blogpost about my activities in the art world. Yay! The forces of the universe have been trying hard to make me sick and get me out of commission this holiday season. Probably trying to get me to take some sort of a "vacation". Pfft, that's for chumps. Which is why I've decided to load up on a lot of what you see in my first picture. That thermos is full of about six bags of a blend of throatcoat and lemon/ginger tea. Blended together it tastes . . . well, it tastes awful. However, it gets the job done. Also beside the thermos is ginger lemonade for washing down coughdrops, echinacea, and Airborne. Take that ailment, nobody gets me away from my art desk, and into bed. At least not without a couple of crisp Benjamins. (ehem)
Anyhowww, The second picture is to show that I'm moving into phase two of Operation Redeye. All those sheets of paper total up to about 75 storyboards. Originally there were 90, but I took 15 out, and I still need to double what I have left. Which means before I'm done there needs to be . . . like a thousand or something. I don't know, I never learned how to count. Anyway it's a lot of drawings. Needless to say I still need to redraw all of the ones pictured first, all the while filling in the blanks and correcting the screen direction and compositions. Notice how they're all hanging over my desk in a daunting way. That's called hierarchy kids, and if I were in that shot sitting in my chair, it could be considered foreshadowing of the week to come. You'd probably just see the top of my head, all dinky looking, shadowed, and forlorn until . . . STARWIPE to the third photo in this blogpost.
The last picture is a photo of the building designs I've been working on. I still need to do a few more drawings for it but have other things to move on to for the time being, which is why I haven't bothered scanning it in, so squint yer eyes and get a peek.
