I have been working away on a graphic novel for 6 years now. Yeah, you heard me. It’s not a GN for the large kid’s publishers I don’t think. It is a ‘passion project’. A lotta good that does me!
In fact the only discussion I’ve had about this GN is with a comic publisher who wants to publish it. But it’s taking me forever because I work around my paying work and a life that seems to get longer on duties and responsibilities as the amount of time in a day gets shorter. Welcome to getting older.
Comics is a different world to some extent. I enjoy the freedom of working in comics, but I really need to get this thing done. I have about 5 chapters left, and last year all year, I got one chapter roughed, scanned, drawn, added the type and colored. One chapter. About 20 pages. Maybe a little more.
This year so far I have made progress on a chapter, scanned roughs and started placing type and drawing. My evenings really should be occupied with this project. Now I just need to force myself to do it!
