In a year that has been change change change, the past month has provided me yet another change. Stuff happened and I decided it was time to leave the dayjob I have had for the past 7 years. It had been a while coming and it just seemed to be the time. This was the longest I had ever been at one job.
The world beyond the 9 to 5 life I had been living for 7 years is strange. Suddenly the days stretch out with endless possibility, rather than hoping to squeeze in a tired hour of drawing after a day at the dayjob. Now I can go on a good walk every day, and there is still lots of time for other stuff. Today Manien and I were trying to figure out what day it was, as her job is not a Monday to Friday gig. Is.. is this a weekday?
So yeah, anyways, 2015. Year of Change!
I spent the past week putting together a comic for an interesting project through Cloudscape Comics. They are having a bunch of artists do comics that are going to be put up in bus shelters, so gigantic 5′ tall poster comics. Someone dropped out at the end of May, and since I just happened to suddenly have lots of time on my hands I was able to jump in and be part of the project. It felt great to get drawing and colouring again. Here is a panel, if… instagram displays properly.
Here is a song I was enjoying earlier today, as I strolled around the hood.
Here is a comic that I was doing on the seabus on my way to and from work each day. I was drawing it quickly, making it up as I went. Hm, look, themes of a new job and change… As well as barf and poo.
