On a whim, I tried to calculate how much art I’ve done in the last two months, using DeviantART and my old invoices.
31 paintings for fun.
10 interior illos.
16 happy frogs or related silliness.
15 pages of Digger.
That’s…um…76 paintings in two months, which is more than one a day. More if I finish anything before next week, which I damn well better.
A) No wonder my wrists hurt occasionally.
B) I am gonna stop feeling guilty about those afternoon naps now.
C) What the HELL are they putting in the water here in Cary?!
While I work very fast, admittedly, even for me this is sort of ridiculous and not a pace I can realistically expect to sustain without experiencing severe eventual burnout. However, it’s a little gratifying to know that my feelings of being swamped and never making any headway are unfounded, and cheers me enormously, even as my inbox continues to fill.
