Again, Not Dead, Just Rubbish

I've been busy. Work -- the thing which I once enjoyed but now only tolerate -- has picked up, but due to cutbacks and layoffs, there aren't enough people to do the work, so there's that. The big drain -- although drain implies something negative, and this is anything but -- on my time at the moment is my art. I have been producing a lot of art in the past few weeks, often to short deadlines, and I haven't had much time for much else.

I've also not been able to talk about it much, or rather I'd prefer to go into detail when the stuff is released; I've got some art in a number of upcoming publications, a couple of which should be coming out soon, and some others coming out towards the end of the year. The big news on that front is that people are starting to pay for this stuff, and I've made a tidy profit over the past few weeks, although given the cost of materials, almost anything above a quid is a profit.

My PJANG! strip is going nowhere, although I am working on something else -- I don't know if it's been announced, so I won't go into too much detail -- with Rol in the meantime, and I'm still trying to plough through Don Quixote; I passed the half way mark a few days ago and the second half of the book is much more interesting. It's all gone very self-referential and one almost expects Cervantes himself to turn up in a fiction suit.
