Very busy. Also often very confused. Many things are in flux at the moment. I am therefore not doing much of the bloggery, which is something I should fix. Starting tomorrow. Maybe.
Most of the things I’ve been doing, I can’t actually talk much about. Which, yes, gets annoying.
Ariana and I just did a very limited t-shirt design for some partners of mine, but I can’t release details until I get the nod from them. (Said partners are generally pretty fucking awesome, so that shouldn’t be long.)
Note from another group of partners reads "PROJECT BLACKLIGHT IS GO – I REPEAT, PROJECT BLACKLIGHT IS GO." So at some point I have to go to London and
get drunk meet with them and find out what’s what. Possibly not this month, though. But I don’t think I can mention why it possibly won’t be happening this month, yet, either. Aside from having to do lots of work.
I’m within a hair’s breadth of finishing the last of my current commitments to Marvel Comics (we’re working out something with NEWUNIVERSAL, as I lost the entirely of my scripts and notes on that book, as mentioned previously). My contract with them doesn’t run out until next year, however, so this week I’m putting together a couple of new ideas for consideration. My Marvel contract is Work-For-Hire-Exclusive, which means that if I do company-owned work-for-hire projects, I do them only for Marvel. Doesn’t stop me doing creator-owned work elsewhere. As I said earlier in the year, X-Men really broke my back, and I really haven’t recovered in terms of production speed or stamina, so I’m hoping to develop and place a couple of contained, low-impact projects that let me finish out on something close to a high note. I have a friend knocking up some sketches for one of them right now. (These would be for 2011 publication.)
And I think I puzzled out the bit of FELL #10 that was bugging me over the weekend, so I should have that ready for Ben just as he finished out CHOKER, which means the series will resume and possibly, hopefully conclude during 2011.
Also I am now going to bed I think.
