Didn’t manage to make a comic Monday – felt anxiety about who might see it and what they’d think.
Was listening to a podcast called Make It and Tell Everybody and the cartoonist interviewed (Dustin Harbin) dropped a gem. The gist of which I took to mean: if you’re focused on mark-making (you’re focused on the aesthetics) because you’re worried about the audience reception, instead of the ultimate goal of just finishing the work at hand.
Another breakthrough was to write a weeks worth of haiku-scripts all at once. That was Tuesday night.
In terms of practice drawings I got a few reps in this week. Mostly figures and turning abstract shapes into fantastical characters.
Also managed to make a few face masks for friends and family (when they need to venture out of quarantine for groceries). Just waiting on extra elastic to arrive before I finish the next batch.
I hope to be back next Friday to post a weeks-worth of #serviceindustryhaiku comics, and practice drawings. Now that I feel as if I’ve gotten at least some handle on this process.
