Day 598 of 365 More. You know, producing a comic book is more work that I ever dreamed. After spending all day yesterday on a shoot, I spent all day today coloring the artwork inside. Since I hadn’t really done anything else, I thought I’d give everyone a sneakpeak at one of the pages. Hopefully…

Day 597 of 365 More. "Once upon a time there were four beautiful little girls. All three enrolled in the Academy for Science Soldiers and graduated to join the Transuniversal Interstellar Tranquilty Squadron and were given very hazardous duties as part of the elite Science Ninja Action Team: Cosmic Hellcats unit. But I took them…

Day 596 of 365 More. Beer, the only carbs I need. So today was the day. After 5 weeks of processing, Steph and I invited friends over to try a nice refreshing batch of "Lonzo Maverick’s Good Ol’ Fashioned Canadian Maple Lager." Just like Grampa used to make. Unfortunately, as far as I know, my…

Day 595 of 365 More. After we finish this comic, I’m not sure what I’m going to do with myself. At this point, it just kinda feels like I’ve always been doing it. Sleep is some kinda myth. A dream long since past (see, there’s no dreams since I don’t sleep). But we’re getting there.…

Day 594 of 365 More. Well, I’m getting there. Finished page 19 today. 5 more to go. I can see the end over the horizon. I’m really looking forward to getting some sleep next week (though I’m going to bed now and its barely 2). Next week I also hope to return to doing something…

Day 593 of 365 More. "Ain’t that a kick in the ass?" See, its another one. Get it? Ummm… still not sleeping. So I said yesterday that something bad was going to happen. And they said I was crazy. Well, here we go. Found out today that the shipping terms for the printer that I’m…

Red Light District: Text Sex Originally uploaded by chrismaverick. So I went to Easter dinner with Steph and her family, and while there, here cousin (who I think is like 14) was admiring my new iPhone. In typical teen fashion, she immediately started begging her parents for one. Her mother told her to stop and…

Day 592 of 365 More. I’m "waiting for the other shoe to drop." Get it? Hahah! It’s funny you see. Errm… I haven’t been sleeping much. I’m very used to being unhappy with life. I’m used to things not going well. But lately that isn’t the case. I’m still working. The podcast is going well…

Day 589 of 365 More. My brain is turning to mush. Actually, I had a pretty productive day today. Got a lot of work done on the comic (2.5 pages). Filmed what seemed like a good episode of the podcast. Got our new Time Capsule (Apple Airport 802.11n router with 500GB of storage built in…

Day 588 of 365 More. Yeah, ok… my eyes are kinda bloodshot. Popular myth. People think I don’t sleep. Nothing could be farther than the truth. Actually I do sleep. Just not as much as most people. I learned a long time ago that even though I don’t need as much sleep with as other…

Day 587 of 365 More. Today I am phoning it in… heehee… get it? Actually, I really just wanted to see how good the quality of an iPhone portrait was. The answer… err… it’s this good. The problem with this whole comic book thing is that really, its all I’m doing with my life. I…

Day 586 of 365 More. The comic is well underway. I’m more than a third done with the finished artwork. Max is more than halfway through the pencil work. It’s going well. The problem is that I’m staying up so late doing it every night that I’m starting lose track of what’s real and what’s…
