Work and NYCC

"Where've you been?"  "Working my ass off, that's where."

That was the gist of a brief email conversation I had the other day and it accurately describes my past few weeks. 
  I had finished up most of my freelance work, as planned, in late September and didn't have anything scheduled for afterward. So I got to jump on all the commissions I had piling up and finished the majority of them. Although I still had a few to get to , I also planned on doing up new artwork for showing around the New York Comic Con as getting real work is the main priority.  In the process of doing that work, I agreed to take on another Penciling gig for Bluewater and finally said yes to be on an upcoming sketch card set to help fill in the future schedule. But, 2 or 3 days before the Con, Mike Lilly contacted me about Inking an Antony and Cleopatra Graphic Novel he was penciling and he really needed help. So I was on board for that too and found my schedule completely full until January and I hadn't even left for NYCC yet. 
  Which brings to this short concentrated review of the con: Awesome. 
It was extremely busy, had tons of people, and left me pretty damn tired. I basically spent 2 days walking around seeing friends I haven't seen for awhile, meeting artists, hitting up various publishers, book pushers, dealers, and showing my stuff around. It went better than I expected and I even added to my current workload with publishers that wanted to see more. 
  So that's where I've been, putting in some double overtime trying to get everything done. It's working pretty good and I've got a good pace going. Unfortunately I've had to put off a few of those remaining commissions and updating my Website, which I originally had in the schedule for right now, is again on the back burner.     

Next: Filling a visual request.



Actively looking for an assistant.
