It was interesting what happened at the beginning of 2016, the first thing was after drawing a year of monkeys, it seems my shoulder decided to start hurting. Nothing life or doodle threatening, but I found it ironic that I finish this challenge and then drawing becomes painful. I think it might be like, in teaching, where I tend to get sick on vacations. My body keeps going until it has a chance to rest and then “Sproing!”
I have returned to the drawing board looking at what projects I need to pursue for 2016. I’ve got some ideas, but planning and scheduling might be an issue, only time will tell. Today though I went through all the files I had created for what I like to call “Monkey on my Back Project.” I’ve divided them up by content and file type. Here I posted .jpg files, I also saved .eps files at a higher resolution, and finally the .psd files of the original art from the scans and my coloring. Basically, a whole lot of monkeys. My first one dealt with (you guessed it) monkeys – I think I’m in a rut.
I’m planning on tabling at one Convention this year, one of my favorites – The Indypendent Show. If you happen to be in the Indy area, stop by say “Hi” and play some games. Games? The show is a part of the Who’s Yer Con. Who’s Yer Con is a long running local gaming convention which runs from April 1 – 3. The Indypendent Show is on that Sunday, April 3rd. It should be a great time (as long as I’m not sick like I was last year).
I’ll be updating the site as I work on more projects throughout the year. Who knows? there might even be a comic strip or two posted.
