Keeping busy

I’ve been spending a lot of time over the last couple of weeks drawing and playing around with art and illustrations. There are several projects and ideas that have been keeping me motivated. I’ve been reading Scott McCloud’s ‘Making Comics’, Peter O’Donnel’s ‘Modesty Blaise’, Will Eisner’s ‘The Spirit’ archives and a few other things, providing great inspiration.

There should be more soon, but here are some I’ve already scanned:

Long weekend ahead and nothing planned, for a good reason, which I won’t divulge right now. Tomorrow is Children and Mother’s Day, so if I’m not feeling like a hermit, I might get out and see what’s happening. There should be stuff going on in Sukhbaatar Square and the Children’s Park which, if I attend, should yield some good photos.

Work has been busier, thus more interesting over the last week, since I conjured up a few things to keep myself busy. Lots of errands to run and things to get done, so I’d better run for now.

  1. Have you read McCloud’s ‘Understanding Comics’? I just finished it for a paper I’m writing for my Media Education subject. I’m now very compelled to buy it, but I’m going to try to wait until I’m teaching so I can claim it on tax. In any case, it was well worth all the searching it took to find (my Uni’s library is about 5 times the size of the St.Albans one…).

  2. I have read it actually. Borrowed if from St Albans as it happens. ‘Making’ is the new one, which is really good. Has a great section on facial expressions.
