Trying Something

A little experiment in productivity.  I've been timing myself for 30 minute intervals, both to see how much I can do in that time, and to see how long I can stay focused on one artistic task.  When the 30 minutes is up, an alarm goes off, and I switch to another project. 

I've been doing this the past two days, and here's some of what I've accomplished:

I think it's working, though I'm finding switching tasks every 30 minutes a little tiring, so I'm starting to cheat a little and spend maybe an hour on one thing, and an hour and a half on another. 

I've just got to find a groove that works.  Since I started my new "irl" job last month I've been sick on and off all that time, so I've been obeying my pounding sinuses and sleeping a lot, rather than whipping them into submission.  So I have no rhythm, and it's making drawing a chore rather than a pleasure.  This cannot be borne!

Hourly Comic Day

It's Hourly Comic Day and I am remembering to participate at last!

Will update this post as we go... Done!

Oh. My. Goodness.

Working with the deadline of one strip every hour? Why did I do that to myself?!

Well, at least I know now what it's like. And although it was frustrating for trying to do anything else, it was nice to feel that productive...

So there you go. A day in the life of me, more or less.
