Things I Meant To Tell You

I missed the deadline for the mural. I got the picture done. It’s not as good as I’d hoped. But the point is, I got it done… just ten minutes before it was due. I’d have cabbed it, but I still had to fill out the submission forms, and burn a DVD of the graphics, which I still had to scan. Basically, I was sunk. The only way I could have made it happen on time is if I had filled out the applications and forms last night, after I got home and ate. But I was feeling crummy, so I crawled into bed, and ended up sleeping in much longer than usual (7:30ish AM), and basically crawled out of bed late this morning and finished drawing and colouring it as fast as I could.

I’m dissatisfied with the colour choices. The Inktense pencils look great when used properly, and I didn’t do THAT bad a job on the painting, even though I rushed it, but the colours I used look muddy, instead of popping as I’d intended. The problem of trying to appease both my personal mandate to make it as cool as possible, and the urge to win over anyone looking for classical imagery.

I guess it doesn’t matter if I show it around now, so here it is:

Carter Park Mural Concept 2014 (1 of 1)I think it would have been a success if I’d somehow found just a few more days to work on it. Even one might have done it. I just didn’t have enough time, it seems.

Dawn suggests I vector it, correct the problems, and sell it on tee shirts. I’m thinking about it.

In other news, still haven’t decided if I’m writing a third act to THE APPROXIMATE DISTANCE TO LIMBO. I have the barest inkling of an idea for one, but I’m not sure it will be that interesting. I may wait and see if a better idea comes along. If not, I’ll wrap it up with Act Two and self-publish it, perhaps by the end of the month. Not as long as or as sexy as Terminal Monday, but at least it’s a pretty interesting read.

And in still other news, we have a new PBW2 Facilitator. However, I can’t name them yet, because they have to notify their employer of their wish to leave and do the PB thing for the next five months. Hopefully we’ll have it all ironed out by Monday.

And that’s all I’ve got. I’m sitting with a glass of single malt, a copy of the BBC original Life On Mars, and a desire to see only people I love, just now.

Thanks for reading. Have a good night.



Don't be shy. Tell me what you really think, now.
