Daily grind

A lot of days that are very much the same as all other days.  But then last week, a man I work with didn't show up to work.  We found out later he passed away during the night.  He was about my age, nice guy.  They let us know in an email, and then the day went on.

That rattled me.  Someone died and we didn't stop working (we answer calls).  It felt like he didn't matter.  Later they raised money to donate in his name, but we never stopped working.  I found that thoroughly depressing.

I just know that I don't want to work there until I die.

Post convention depression

The let down feeling after a convention.  I had an ok show, had better and had worse.  The thing about Heroescon (and any big convention) is that there is so much to see and so many places to buy stuff, the bottom line suffers a bit.  Had some friends with really bad shows, so I feel pretty good that mine was so-so. 
The really good news about the show is that I sold more comics than I usually do.  That was pretty cool.  They don't make much money by themselves, but Intermezzo was why I started this.  It felt nice.

But now I am back to the daily grind... and the real world is depressing.

I will be at Heroescon in Charlotte, NC this weekend.  I will be set up at tables 2017 and 2018.  Big Fun!

Wendy will be there with me, she is much more interesting to talk to.

And its back

After finding that the bulk of the charges for were automatically, Wendy and I decided to renew the website for a year.  Since the bulk of it was already paid.  We plan to evaluate it through the year and think of what we want to do.

Its down!  Its up!  Its down!  Not my idea of fun.

The domain has lapsed.  After thinking about it for a while we are letting it go.  While it was nice to have, I don't think it is paying off as an investment.  I think I need to look at more modern avenues to get my comics out there, and there are better ways to do that.  Part of me feels like I am somehow "less official" without a website.  I will be trying those things as soon as some young whippersnapper tells me what they are.

Let's see how this goes

Wendy and her mother are going on a trip this weekend.  I plan to work on sketches and sketch cards for Heroescon.  I wonder how much I will really get done.

Post issue 12 post

I've been working at getting issue 12 done for so long, I am a bit lost what to do with my time.  Heroescon is coming soon.  I need to do some sketches and sketch cards.  I have a print I want to have in time for the show, and some arranging to do with the table space.

But I'm still down about this past weekend.  Knowing something is bound to happen doesn't mean you are ready for it.
