Things here at Deleted Inc. have been filled with gardening, walking, watching wrestling, self loathing and what not. Freelance has been somewhat steady, which is good. The part time gig, is the part time gig. I’m not sure what shall become of it all and whatnot, but at the moment I could give a heck.
I’ve been nursing some hurt feelings the past few years over a lot of things connected to something that I thought was awesome, fun and was for a good cause. After dedicating a pant load of my time and energy to so many things for this, only to be taken advantage of on so many things and getting cut out of any sort of compensation for anything. This manchild is done with said project, son. I guess the moral of the story is that when someone feeds you the line “Do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”, promptly grab them by the neck and then knee them in the groin repeatedly. I’ve found that if you’re doing something that you love, people assume that you’re happy that they’re letting you do something that you love, therefore that is the only compensation needed for said service, no need for monetary payment. To this I say, there is a special place in hell for folks like this, and I’m an atheist. Well, I’m put this one to bed right now.
I’ve got an interesting illustration to start and work on this weekend dealing with some cannibals in a unique situation. I purchased scratch board and scratch board tools to experiment in my free time. I’m not sure what, if anything, will come of this, but I thought it might be a fun medium to mess around with. I was big into intaglio printing in school and I used the sharp end of a compass to etch on the plate, scratch board is right there…man! I need to do the memorial watercolor for my Uncle in honor of my Aunt. I’m a terrible human/relative.
Well, that’s about it. I’ve been listening to a lot of King Django related projects. It’s good summertime tunes. Until next time, COURAGE.
