Status Report – 070120:
On this Canada Day, we’re at the desk getting some work done despite having some brain fog. It’s a stat holiday for most folks, but I never take those off because my chosen profession is based on deadlines and each day off further delays those deadlines.
Which is fine, me working.
Making art is how I prefer to spend my time anyway. But as for you, if you have today off, go easy, take a breath, and recharge so you’re ready for the remainder of the week.
This morning, I posted a new chapter of Zomtropolis to Patreon. You can read it–and get caught up–by going here.
Now back to work.
This has been your Status Report for 070120.
One of the ideas I’ve been toying with off and on–and recently mentioned in my newsletter–is doing weekly update videos in lieu of updates on the blog. They would air here as an embedded video from my YouTube channel.
Given the current–and upcoming–workload, this idea seems to be a way for me to simplify things on my end and free up some time, time that would in turn be spent working on projects.
The other benefit is it would free up the blog space for more topical items and/or thoughts.
The videos would be casual vLogging and just a way to keep everybody in the loop.
Note: These videos wouldn’t replace standard features on my YouTube channel like unboxings, reader questions, collectible showcases, etc. They’d probably go under their own heading as a weekly update.
What you think? Is this something you would watch?
I’m reviewing my interaction with the Web so any feedback is appreciated. Please write in and let me know and we’ll go from there.
Also, be sure to subscribe to my channel so you’re always in the loop.
Thanks. Enjoy your day.

Now enjoy and may the Force be with you!
Ps. If you have a video request of some kind, please drop me a note and I’ll see what I can do. I love hearing from my readers.
Ideas are a funny thing. Sometimes they come to you fully formed; other times they’re a few ingredients short of a full recipe.
This happened to me recently.
If you know me, you know I operate on a Loose Skeleton approach to ideas. An idea comes but it’s often missing the main tissues that connects the whole thing and forms a complete picture.
Yesterday (I think), a skeleton of an idea for Project Rebuild grew some muscle and took shape. After, I was able to step back and take a good look at that shape and see if it was viable or not.
There are still some finer points that need to grow on this idea, things like its skin and overall aesthetics, but the bulk of the idea is complete and, I suspect, the rest will be sorted out on the drawing board.
Here’s the point: Don’t dismiss an idea just because it’s missing its meat and potatoes. Like any meal, it all begins in the kitchen as loose parts that will later be combined to make a dish. Some ingredients you have in your pantry, some are hidden away at the back of the shelf, others you need to go to the store for.
Bottom line: Write the idea down and let your subconscious do the work of adding more things to the pot and getting it cooking. You’ll be surprised as to what comes out.

Status Report – 062520:
It’s a warm day here in Winnipeg. A couple cups of coffee have been had and I’m gearing up for the rest of the work day.
We’ve also initiated Mostly Broadcast Mode over here and have been spending little–if any–time on the social feeds. Sometimes it gets to be too much and one needs to step back and focus on the work.
Today’s agenda involves making more comics.
