My mom used to say. “The hurrieder I go, the behinder I get.” Like all folk sayings, there’s a fair amount of truth in it. Whereas just a few short weeks ago I was nine weeks ahead on LIM, I’m now down to three. And the more I try to catch up, the more mistakes I make. I realize that you all see the result, not what I really intended, but there’s a certain line that I’ve been crossing and it’s pissing me off. I’m not a perfectionist, I know that I have to let some things go if I’m ever going to really finish this project. But lately I’ve been feeling my work is getting sloppy, I’m finding more continuity mistakes -little stuff, nothing that affects the story, but stuff that is irritating nonetheless–and I’ haven’t been too happy with some of the drawing and coloring.
All this to say that I’ll probably have to take another break sometime after the first of the year to build up some more inventory. I’ll keep going for as long as I can, but I am going to slow down a bit and do the damn pages so that I’m more satisfied with the result. I’ll keep you posted.
I’ve referenced this video before, but a reader sent in the link and it’s a good one to share again and again. I give you Shadow Over Innsmouth: the Musical.
Have a god weekend.
