Kevin was out of town this week, so I started about eleven hundred projects in order to keep from going bonkers. (I am hella productive when I’m solo. I think it’s because I get restless and wander around and start drawing when I’d normally just poke Kevin a few times and laugh maniacally. This is useful for my self-worth but bad for my mood.)

Despite these projects, I only took a couple photos and I didn’t do any of the “sit down and stage this and fiddle with lighting” stuff that I wanted to do. (But I did write over 8000 words, so that’s not a bad thing!)

workspace

This is my absolutely straightforward not-bothering-to-compose workspace photo. Were I doing this more staged, I’d move those pens touching the painting, and maybe see if I couldn’t darken the background bits more. (I am enjoying the pink bunny painting, though!)

Obligatory Cat Photo. This is Sergei, who is actually extremely lean but was caught in an angle of fluffiness. Taken and filtered with Camera+

I think part of my problem is that I need…I don’t know, narrative. There has to be a figure. I’m bad at still-lifes, I want some little tiny moment of the hero’s journey, even if the hero is a vaguely anthropomorphic vegetable. I have a sort of idea I’m working on that may put that to rest, but at the moment…cat photos.

    Hey, just an FYI. Don’t know if you’ve been made aware of it or not, but the digger archives are kinda broken. You’ve got the current front page and the first comic, but everything else returns “502 bad gateway”. I *think* that means a problem connecting to the SQL server behind wordpress, but I could be mistaken.

      Sergei is my favorite Eastern Bloc dictator cat.
