4:30 AM October 28, 2006
Going to be more selective and asking more money. If it's going to keep me away from writing, it better be good or filling my wallet or both! NOT that I haven't enjoyed my recent jobs! That's surely NOT the case. But for the sake my my writing "career"...can you really call it a career when you're at the point where it costs you more than it makes you?...I just need to set the bar higher to keep myself from taking more jobs than I should. Future jobs should be really cool, or fun, or see me working for a big company or on projects with extra cool talent involved...or they should at least be paying me my new minimum rate. I can almost hear JD from Imperium saying "Oh, $#*@!! What does that mean??"
Anyway, moving on...it's 4:30am and I've been in bed a few hours, just miserable sick with a messed up back and dealing with a touch of his flu we have going 'round around here, but I feel a bit better so I figured I better get on the computer and finish one last page of lettering an a short story for a fella. Checked my email and found pencils for a Black Watch cover...or variant cover...or poster...or something. The pic on the left is a quickie mock-up with the logo.
Also got some sweet headshots from the artist doing Life of Riley with me. LoR is a mismatched group of teens bouncing around realities trying to find pieces of an artifact, trying to find Riley's mom and brother who they learn are out there reality-hopping too, and trying find a way home. Maybe I'll post those up later.
Well, time is a'wastin'...I better crank out that page and get back to bed.
