So, I was going to write about my first day of work, but instead I started thinking about the web comic I wanted to do but pushed aside to get my paintings done for the art show. Well the art is up on the walls, and I have time to do something. So, I thought of a compromise, how about a journal web comic? The American Elf journal Comic is actually a lot of fun, even inspiring. I've also been listening to a podcast from the Savanah Art of College and Design, and a student also maintains a journal comic here. So, now after some thought, I think I am going to do a weekly journal comic and see how it rolls. I'm already working on one that is about DAY1 of my new job. I'll try to get it up this weekend, I'm putting more time than necessary into it, but this is the first time I've done anything of the sort, so I'll just have to roll with it until I come up with a standard way of doing it. We'll see.
Anyway, I'm having trouble kicking my graveyard schedule, as you can tell by the time stamp on this blog entry, it is around 3:00am. I worked all morning from 7am - 3:30pm, drove home, stopped at the comic shop to order some trades, then ate dinner. Afterward I decided to take a nap, but instead I crashed hard core from 4:30 - 11:30pm. So now I'm wide awake, but I'm going to try to sleep a couple more hours before starting at 8:00am. I should be fine tomorrow for work, but fighting my sleep schedule is going to be worse than I imagined.
PS, I forgot my wallet on my first day of work, so when I swung by The Comic Book Shop, I was only able to make orders for some books and couldn't buy a damn thing. This was actually kind of cool, but also equally frustrating. There were pretty books all over, but I avoided "The Gauntlet" of marching back and forth in front of the new released comics rack. I promptly made my orders and ran away to not be further tempted. I've been buying more comics than I thought I would have ever when I got back into comics about a year and a half ago. At first I thought I'd pick up one or two subscriptions and the occasional trade. Now I have 7 comics in subscription, and I'm always grabbing more than I want when I leave. I think I'm going to have to come with a list, and stick to it to avoid over purchasing, I just don't have room for these silly funny books.
