So I did the button workshop yesterday. It didn’t do too well. A big rainy day. I made $12 for 3 hours of time. Sigh. But that’s how it goes sometimes. Gotta try things out to figure out what works.
The button kickstarter is getting dangerously close to being funded after a week & minimal promotion. I’m also trying to work out with the artists to have some high tiered original art available, but some folks start with digital so those may end up as prints.
I’ve started to send off my dream diary manuscript to a few people for review & insight. We’ll see what happens with it. I feel a certain level of hope for it generating interest that I haven’t felt for anything I’ve worked on in months.
I am hoping to this week make the digital versions of a bunch of comics from the past year & run some promo for them. I haven’t done any promotional thing on my comics in a long time, so maybe it will help get the word out since it has been a while. I was getting diminished responses when running promo every two months.
Last Night’s Dreams:
I’m with a friend of mine at a film festival a hundred miles from home. We run into her ex-boyfriend in the film makers’ lounge & he assumes we’re together & starts making out with a young girl who’s with him. My friend tells me that the girl he’s making out with is his niece & asks if we can leave. I shoot my beer & we walk out into the streets trying to remember where I parked my car. When I start the car, the gas gauge is on empty & I don’t know where a gas station is in this town.
I take my grandmother to visit a friend of hers in the hospital. Her friend has the wrong name on the tag on her wrist & has been put through the wrong surgery. I fucking hate hospitals.
