I am so excited about this. I think it’s the best thing I’ve done yet. It has been a gruelling task to get this finished though. The month that this took to draw coincided with the birth of my son Calvin, a full time teaching job and a part time phd. I’ve rarely been this busy. There has been few days since the beginning of October that I haven’t driven 70 miles, drawn or roughed two full pages, worked the day job 8 hours, had less than 5 hours sleep and been a full time father and husband.
Not that I’m complaining, I enjoy staying busy, but I’m going to have a bit of a break until January I think. This kind of workload isn’t sustainable and in the words of a politician euphamistically excusing some sordid dalliance, I want to spend more time with my family. I aim to be back and working on the 300-ish-page ongoing project in January. Probably not with the same fervour, but at a reasonable, enjoyable and sustainable pace.
