my office is a mess.
my god--this place is a disaster.
reflective of how things have been around here for the past week or so. just chaotic and disorganized. that's okay. that happens. there were lots of unforeseen interruptions, last minute change-of-plans, minor emergencies, chores piling up--not to mention trying to get some actual work done in between all that. no time to make some phone calls, no time to talk, no time to blog...no time for me.
but last night we had a storm here that knocked the power out from about 3 a.m. til, well, just now. i woke up with no computer, no way to really work (yeah, i could have sat down and used a pencil and paper like the dinosaurs did, but that's not where i'm going...) it was quiet, it was calm. and i realized it was the little break i needed to see that i was running around like crazy and getting nothing done. i needed to step back and slow down--take that deep breath and realize that it's all gonna be here tomorrow, stop adding stress to it.
so here's a post.
it's not going to be long.
just checking in and sharing some photos i've had on the radar for the past week or so.
and also to remind you...to take a break. step back. slow down.
it's okay to relax.
craig and i are moving along diligently with the next perhapanauts story arc and, as i've said here before, i am also working with a bunch of fantastic artists on back-ups and side-stories that will fill out the issues and make this the biggest, bestest perhapanauts package yet! and we've got some other projects in the works that promise to make 2011 the year of the perhapanauts! (i hope...!)
one guy who's hard at work is the talented eric henson--i've shown you some of his awesome work before. eric's been very patient with me as i've been trying to subtly fold his story into the big picture, coordinating it with the main story and making sure that it lines up chronologically and environmentally. in his patience, eric sent me these choopie sketches he did to warm up and start getting the feel for the guy...and i just had to share them with you...!
and 'cause i never get tired of this joke, here's eric's thing...
and a stunning supergirl!
it's gonna be great!
and here are some pics i've been saving.
this one christian sent to matt and i a week or so go and i just think it's funny.
a card i found at barnes and noble that states a philosophy that has served me well from time to time...
gonna need a few more balloons.
no. 1 on the list of what not to do in the woods.
that's it for today.
i'm gonna clean my office.
smell ya later!
