Some good moments…
I just got my copies of the latest books generic bob and same squirrel, different day…
I have to say, seeing them on paper definitely makes sense. There’s an air of tangibility that seeing them on a computer screen just doesn’t give. Yes, I literally LIVE with these drawings and I can pull them off the shelf whenever I want. But, having them collected in a book just makes them different. It’s like a choir. One voice is nice…many voices together? Wow.
I re-lived moments from the year I’d forgotten. Even though I was the one who put the book together, reading them in the actual book form required that I invest more of myself into the act. Creating and consuming are two different animals. Sure, I was invested when I created the strips, but it was a different kind of investment. That investment concerns itself with deadlines, form, style, composition. The consuming just concerns itself with consuming… reading, turning, laughing and thinking.
I apologize for the disjointed nature of this post. It’s cool to find yourself a spectator of your life and actually enjoy what you’re seeing.
So glad i’m a cartoonist.
one more day to go!
One more day. Just one more day and I will follow through with the best decision I’ve ever made in my life ever.
