Hi, diehard Spacers! I finally had some time to myself where I didn’t feel guilty drawing CK and crew again!
The past year has been absolute nanners. I’ve been working as a storyboard artist / animator* for the new show ASTROBLAST. (check your local listings)
In contrast to my previous job, where there were lulls and rushes, this is constant non-stop 110 percent ten speed working biz. So a bit of a culture shock maybe (and dare I say an energy drain sometimes?) but it’s super fun doing this stuff all the time. I haven’t had anything comic worthy to post here, but I do post scribbles from time to time on the CK Facebook page.
But health wise, things are back on the up and up. I had some bad depression to go through over the winter which didn’t help things. (does it ever?) But being able to talk about it was part of getting over it for me. If depression hits you, hit back with talking. And patience.
But I don’t wanna bore you!
The big question… will CK continue? I want it to, but you fans don’t deserve this stop and go stuff. To reiterate a Facebook post, I would prefer to finish it behind the scenes and just present it to you all in a collection. A book if you will. And then move onto something else. Another CK story is possible. ANYTHING’s possible! I do like to mix things up.
Enjoy some CK artwork, and keep looking at the stars! I lost my skyfly keys, and they might drift by.
*They call it a storyboarding, but really there’s a lot of animating to do, but it’s in a rough stage. It’s what you might call an animatic. Well, it’s more final than an animatic, but less final than the final piece. Is that a actual position? Animaticker? Cartoons are weird, man!
