Art-Making: Keeping It Fresh


This week was vacation week, both in the regular sense and in the sense that I really needed a break from working on the comic.

We spent a couple days out of pocket and out of the office with friends and family indulging in fun and relaxation. Several naps, a game of laser tag, some wizard themed mini golf, a shower that was like a water park, and at least three meals that blew my calorie budget out of the water later, and I was ready to come home and work on some art.

(Look a wizard and laser tag relevant gif!)

But, not my comic art. I needed to work on something different. Really different. I had an art teacher tell me, "Once your passion becomes your job, then it's no longer your passion." And comic making has started to feel a lot like a job. Since I want to avoid that, I decided to switch things up a little bit this week and return to comic making this coming week.

"Once your passion becomes your job, then it's no longer your passion."

So, I pulled out an abstract piece I had started back in August and never finished gold leafing and wrapped that up. Also, the cat helped. Everyone, meet Nox.
