Did I ever tell you I’ve got some graphic arts chops?
Sometimes all it takes is a single image to fire the engine of the imagination. I’ve talked a bit about the upcoming web serial, but I haven’t given out many details because the truth is, there haven’t been any details to give out! Today I sat down at lunch time and really thought hard about the kinds of things I wanted to do and say with my serial. All the bits and pieces of different concepts, conflicts, neat ideas, everything I’ve bounced around in my head the last 20 years. And this afternoon, while electronically constructing this emblem, the project quickly snapped into focus. I don’t often have these moments of rush-clarity. When they happen, I am almost not sure I can trust them because they are such a head soak — so much information piling on top of itself in an organized pattern — that it’s difficult to grasp all in one blow. But I’m as excited as I’ve ever been about any story I’ve ever told, or tried to tell. So excited I am practically bouncing out of my chair. I want to sit myself down and pound the entire thing out, not stopping. Haven’t felt that urge in quite some time.
