I haven't written one of these in apparently six months, guess it's time for an update.
Just returned from Japan after a year. Working on finding a job and a place to live now.
Dug my portfolio out of a box at the top of a tower of boxes. I should have expected it to be somewhere only I could reach hahaha! It was a fun and probably dangerous climb.
I have a week before my interview for the job I've been looking at, so that gives me time to get myself back in order.
Still competing in , where I am facing off against Spectrumelf in what WOULD be the the final round in any regular tournament.
This one is better though, and we kinda get to have THREE of those!
Now, it's been two weeks since I had to pack everything up over there, and bring it all here... I have finally got my tournament setup out of the box and visible, storyboarded a first page and a half, and have a written entry almost finished for pre-round storytelling.
I really wish I had a desk I could work at. Or a comfortable couch in a small room where I could be surrounded by my art while i work, but until I get the job and a place to live, that's not happening. Currently sharing a house with 5 family members and too many cats.
I now have a week with no real plans. And there are three things I want to do with it. Fix dag weapons, draw comic, and fiddle a little with my portfolio so it looks pretty for the interview.
Problem with living around the in-laws though, is that I get nervous about having time off. While growing up in my family, having time off was the same as wasting time and looking like a bum. Perhaps my wife's family doesnt see me that way, and i dont think they do, but it's so ingrained in my head that it makes me uncomfortable being around people when I'm not doing anything that seems purposeful.
Needless to say, I need my own cave again as soon as feasibly possible.
