Mood: Frustrated

Well, the new job is going ... interesting? No, that's not quite the right word for it.

It's a lot more hours and in theory, lots more pay. But I know the company and they are not known for being big on paying their staff lots of monies. So I'll hold judgment until the cash is in my hands. However, the loss of time is the biggest annoyance. There are so many things that I am trying to do that need time and at the end of a shift I am just too tired to do anything productive.

It's a good thing that I don't have a webcomic running at the moment as it would have ended up on hiatus by now.

No real good news to report. Having come back to Perth has dropped me right back to where I was before I left. Nothing changes around here.

So tired...

Busy working, busy doing freelance jobs and busy trying not to collapse.

Need sleep.

Well, I'm going to be heading back to the old job only now I'll be assistant manager rather than just rank and file. Good in the sense that it's more money, bad in the sense that it's more hours and I'll have less fee time.

No matter, the only thing that I really need to work out will be just what my schedule is as I still want to do a fair spot of exercise as well as work so that I can add some muscles and shed a bit of excess fat. Not that I'm particularly overweight, I just want to tighten up a bit.

Not sure if I want to join a gym or just buy a bike...

One more time

Well, I’m starting yet another of my little projects. As you may already know, I’ve been toying with the idea of running webcomics. I’ve had two major offerings, of which TwaiP was the main one.

In that sort of vein, I have decided that I am going to get myself a graphics tablet. However, I don’t want to spend the money on one unless I know that I am going to stick with it.

There it sits, one thousand sheets of blank paper.

So I bought my self some paper (1000 sheets to be precise) and a packet of pencils. I’m going to draw out on all of those sheets before I commit to buying a graphics tablet.

In order to make it easier to draw, I’ve built a drawing table thingy (an angled bit of wood) that I can lean on and be in a slightly more comfortable position when drawing.

Day One, Sheet One. Only 999 sheets to go.

You can see there sheet one, with some random doodles on it. I’m not planning on drawing anything particularly fantastic on each and every sheet – it’s more a matter of practicing so that I can be more consistent.

And on the plus side, but the time I’ve taught myself to draw really well, I’ll need to change the way I draw to use the graphics tablet properly.
