Man…this sucks.  Its been at least, what, a week since I’ve posted any new work?  And I’m feelin pretty crappy about it.  I’ve been workin’ on a little somethin’ for a couple of days but  I just can’t seem to find time to finish it.  Its more self-initiated work and I’m feelin’ it for the most part.  But with working a 9-5 and personal obligations I just can’t find the time.  24-hours just isn’t enough anymore.

Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know… “you just have to make time”.  Has anyone ever sat down and analyzed that statement? Take a second…go ahead.  Think about it for a minute or two.  Yeah.   See?  Doesn’t make any sense does it?  You can’t make time if you don’t have any, can you?  Can’t make a cake without flour now can you?  Exactly.  I don’t wanna seem like a crybaby or anything, but it’s remarkably frustrating when you just can’t find the time to pursue your passion and career.  It’s even more frustrating when you have lots of people around you that seem to have no trouble pursuing what it is that they want.  But nnnoooo…. Dre’s gotta go to work.  I know there are plenty of people out there who never enjoy the fruits of their labor.  Moreover, I know that there are quite a few people who never even have the opportunity to pursue their passion.   I know that; I get that.  Hell, you’re probably one of the very people  I’m talkin’ about.  But it’s a real bummer when you’re sittin’ at your desk, ploddin’ along with your day, all the while being aware that you’re completely wasting your time. You’re just treading water, not moving any closer to ‘land’, so to speak.

I sure do wish I could pay my bills with IOU’s.  Because if i could I’d hand ’em out like monopoly money  and stay home to work on this wonderfully bare portfolio-blog.  That, and work on my collection of deconstructionist “indie” comic books. Shuddup.  Don’t judge me.

I really do try to anchor  a negative with a positive so I’ll end this whine-fest with a guarantee:  There will be 2 new posts of actual work I’ve done by no later than August 23rd.  You’d think that a deadline wouldn’t be a positive thing for an aspiring designer, but what can I say? They make me happy.
