on creativity waning…

haven’t written anything for either of my comics in about two days. This is not a good thing. Someone inspire me to do something creative and useful… that or give me a job so that I can be too busy and at least have an excuse to gripe about.

Anyway, a while back I had a call for models for future photosketches that I might do. A bunch of people volunteered. Well, I now have my camera, and am pretty much possessed of nothin but free time, so who wants to go first?

Also I am annoyed because I think I would like to submit some coloring samples to Epic but the line art templates still aren’t there yet (despite the fact that it says they should be by May 22nd). Sigh… now the question is, if they were there would I actually be working on that, or would I be uninspired there too?

Bleah… being creative was so much easier when I was in school. I think it was the fact that there was a driving force. I had to write. There were deadlines… I need that back… that and I used to drink and smoke a lot… really I was so very Hemmingway…

          that’s hard, cuz I don’t really know… usually what I do is take like 500 (no joking) high res pictures and then look at them later, throw away the ones I don’t like, and try to come up with something. Some of the other photoshoots are here if you want to see.

          So I really don’t know…

          Anyway, has pointed out, that I could take pictures of you when we’re in the UK in September, if you want to meet up with us.

          ok then, just remind me once we have a reasonable date set for the party (looking more and more like 8/16) and we can set up a time for the photos…

        Good question.
        I’m at work every day – if you want to try for a lunch photo shoot, that could work. Warn me a day in advance maybe, that way I can try to plan for work to Not Suck(tm). Otherwise, I don’t generally have firm plans for most evenings – if you zephyr me I can tell you if I’m free.
        Today’s already shot down. Tomorrow lunch so far is free, so is the evening.
