Dog Gang Traipsing Around on Paper
Today was an ok day, except I went to bed so late, like 7:30 am. And then got up so late, with a heavy head and feeling exhausted. And had to toddle over to my client's with the drawings. I had planned to get up like ten am and take them over early. Did not happen. Oh well. I could never compete with Fedex.
Then got MOST of a page done for the comics. I really needed to get two pages done. One for monday, and one for tuesday. It didn't happen. I didn't even get one done. Had to come home and set up the house for a massage. Dang it is hard work to do Swedish Massage when you do two a year! What a workout, wrangling with stiff muscles for an hour and a half! Anyways, it was the auctioned-off massage from the dyke party that Onewetleg and I went to the night she arrived here to visit me. So I actually got paid zero, but the girl paid the group $50. I ususally only charge around $40 for an hour, so she got a good long massage. She seemed very happy when I was done. yay.
It was after that that I had a nap! zzzz.
Well, I was a good girl. Finished my one comics page, did a sketch for the renovation magazine client. Tomorrow I want to start working on the Leo's Dog book. I want to be done it by the second week of February at latest. I have to remember that any moment the adult language ed people in Toronto could want me to go to final on the sketches I did for them before Christmas, and at any moment the South Korea people could want to leap into action. I got the signed contract back from them today, along with a Christmas card. I"ll scan it in tomorrow. It is the first time I have gotten a Korean Christmas card. Very funky. hehe.
Off to bed with me now. It says on my calendar "brunch with Antiques Boy"... now when did that come up? Was it decided? Was a time set? Or was it only a possibility? Oh well, I guess I'll sleep and see if he shows up at the door with keys in hand expecting me to have the dog walked and fed and ready to leap out the door.
Oh, ps, I never knew about an award winning author named Trina Schart Hyman, who recently died, but here is an article about her recently and another article that tells more about her with more pics of her artwork. A fellow cartoonist friend wrote me about her today. Now THAT's a REAL illustrator. Be damned if *I* spend 12 hours a day at my drawing table and wanted to be an illustrator since I'm three. Dang.
