Been wrapped up too much in details of drawing, and not focusing on how fun it is to draw. I just read through all my posts on Quick Step, and I remember all the fun I had doing that book. Whenever I sit down to do The Grinder now I get upset: I think this is because I’m trying to be something that I am not.
What I really need to do is just draw it and figure out the details later. I think the big problem is that I’m a slave to all the great photos Chuck and Sal took for me of Atlantic City. Photos can be a problem.
I should never take time off between cartooning, because when I start back up I seem to go through a 3 – 9 week period of “I suck so bad!” I know I don’t suck, but I feel terrible about myself. I even forget I won an award or nice things like that.
Kids, don’t work on comics. It is like being constipated, but imagine being drunk the entire time. It is very uncomfortable and numb.
After 3-9 weeks, I’ll tell you that it is great. Right now, I’m in “The Suck.”
