Artistry and Sickness Recovery

So work continues on the free-lance project at speed.  I am nearing completion thanks to an unexpected burst of enthusiasm for the whole thing.

Part of that may be because I’ve had some wonderful artists sign up to get on board.  One of them is a new friend I’ve made in the New World who’s style I simply LOVE.

Our back and forth discussions have given me another idea for a project we could work on.  Basically, I want to start a webcomic with him. I’ll write, he can draw.  I think it would a fantastic pairing.  Sadly, he is quite busy with Uni these days, so for now, these ideas are simply ‘on the drawing board’ so to speak, but soon I hope to have something more concrete to share.

Thinking about the prospect has been quite freeing, because I’m pretty sure I’ll bleed off the ‘shiny’ idea I had in December as the story for the webcomic (he already loves the idea).  That way I can work on my novel and freelance work while still doing something with that other idea.

I’m very excited.

Update-

I wrote the above shortly before getting sick.  Nothing serious, just one of those annoying head/chest colds.  I’m just starting to feel better though still have a horrible rattling cough.

My friend has sent me some character sketches for the webcomic and they are fantastic.  It’s really a strange feeling seeing my words becoming visual images.  He’s not even read the 6K words I’ve written on the subject, just going off our conversations and yet he’s still getting close to the bone.  I can’t wait to see what he does once he has read the source material!

Now that I am beginning to feel better, I’m going back to writing.  Being sick killed all my enthusiasm and creativity, which was just horrible.  So today I’m back on the wagon, as it were!

Hopefully I’ll be able to update this blog more often now as well.

One thought on “Artistry and Sickness Recovery

  1. I really sympathise with you being sick and getting thrown off your creativity. I hate when that happens to me – it’s like I get a little time off work, in theory I could use that to be super creative, but instead I just lay about watching day-time TV if I can even manage that. Totally lame.

    I’m glad you’re on the mend!
