Hi, old friends. Can you believe I’ve been in LA for a month and a half now? I feel like I’ve aged ten years in that amount of time. Making cartoons is tough business! For your viewing pleasure, I’ve posted a picture of myself at my desk, surrounded by all my jizunk that I’m working on. However, in order to prevent you from harvesting this photo to create your own knock-off version of “Regular Show,” I made sure it was not very high quality.
Anyway, things here at the Cartoon Network are going pretty well. Better and better. I feel like I could maybe have used a foundation course in animation (and while I’m at it maybe some perspective and life drawing, too) but, as always, I’m doing the best I can with the tools I have. Fortunately there are a lot of good people here who are more than eager to help a sister out, so that makes the long days and tight deadlines slightly more endurable. One thing I’ve learned is that I’ve been an incredibly lazy cartoonist. If I had put anywhere near this amount of effort and time into my comics, you’d be able to fill a whole bookshelf with my stuffs by now. Hopefully I will be able to work on comics again sometime soon, and then I can harness the storyboarding tricks I’ve learned for my own personal abundance.
Should I report something about comics here? Since this is my comics blog? Probably. Well, here’s something: I’m going to be at APE in October! Damien Jay, Theo Ellsworth and I will be operating the Secret Acres table. You should come on by! I’ll try to remind you a little closer to that date so you don’t have to load it into your smartphone right now or anything.
