Wow, what a week it has been! On Friday night I flew to Tokyo to see some friends who I have not seen for over two years, who were visiting Tokyo for business purposes. But what I didn’t know was that I would be going to a business meeting myself when I landed! Well, sort of business meeting. An impromptu cookout with a lot of different people in the industry. I also met the fabulous Diana Garnet and we geeked out together for a while (we have a lot in common!). Meeting her really reminded me why I came to Japan, and how much I need to up my game before it’s time to leave. So, entries are coming. New art is coming. And the comic is still coming. The new goal is to have the script ready in two weeks(!!!) and start going full force on the pages! I was hoping to have all the pages done before I go back to the States for Christmas, and that still is my goal. If that doesn’t happen, however, I’m going to have to figure something out, as part of my plan is to print the blue-lines while I’m home, and bring them back to ink here. WE’LL SEE I GUESS. I cranked out the pencils of the sample issue of SHMPA in a month when I made the pitch before, let’s see if I can do it again. I just remember being chained to my desk those weeks. SADNESS.
