The end of another week has arrived — and I’ve got nothing much to write about. I did today’s sketch from a vague idea of a female aviator in a steampunk-type of setting. Of course, the steampunk setting is only slightly hinted at because it’s just a sketch and I don’t have as much time to devote to it as I’d like with work looming. I think one of my major problems– as far as actually getting anything done with my own story/comic book ideas– is that I love so many genres and mixtures of genres. I get all these flashes of ideas for stories and characters swirling around and mixing in my head… and never get to actually producing any of them in my free time. I suppose my fear is that I’ll start on something with great enthusiasm and come to realize that I don’t have quite as many ideas and/or fervor for the concept that I began with. It’s that schizophrenic creative insecurity that keeps me frozen in place most of the time. At the very least, I guess, I’ll end up with a bunch of fun sketches that I can collect into sketchbooks or an art book over time.
Whether I actually ever pursue any of these vague ideas into something concrete or not, drawing this stuff is still a lot of fun… and in the end, that’s what it’s all about.
OK… have a great weekend, everyone.
This is Entry 409.
