I did it – I sent that book, that Book of Boy Trouble Volume 2, that project that ate up many months of time and energy and maybe even just a bit of my sanity in the last several weeks (buy me a drink and I’ll tell you all about it sometime) – it’s gone from my life for the time being, until the pre-publishing work commences. In the meantime, the publisher has it now. I’m done. Done. It’s over. Hooray! John took me out to dinner on Friday night to celebrate, and celebrate we did.
I’m kind of tired now.
So, what to do with myself? Maybe I better spend some time with people again, for starters. There’s always stuff to do around the house too. Plus I haven’t drawn a comic strip in like 3 months (took a hiatus from “Curbside”). I have a bunch of stuff to sell online too – would like to make a serious dent in these cds I don’t want anymore (anyone want some New Wave Hits of the 80s? Cheap? have a few volumes left – in great condition!) So I guess I’ll get cracking on all that. It is really good to be done with the book. There have been times in my life when I have felt an undertow after finishing a project, a sense of aimlessness, a pervading sense of “is that all there is?” This, I can safely say, is not one of those times. I’m damn happy – I really feel a real sense of accomplishment – and that I did a fine job besides. It’s going to be a good book, with some really great artists – some of whom we see far too little of – featured. That’s all there is to it.
