As you are well aware, my updates lately have been few and far between. This is, of course, because my thesis project is taking up all of my time. But I realized yesterday that these two things don’t have to be separate from each other, so from now on I’m going to be posting every night before bed with photos of the newest pages I’m working on!
But Jesse, I hear you cry, won’t that take up too much time posting EVERY night? Actually, I think that this idea will help me to work MORE, since I’ll be accountable to all my loyal followers. If a night passes where I don’t post any new pages, it will be a black mark on my productivity, which should be good motivation.
While we’re on the subject, I had an epiphany last week about my project. With so little time left, I starting to think “hey, it’s still a lot of work even if you don’t finish!” WRONG! This is my time to shine! If I don’t work my hardest while I’m here, then I’m only hurting myself.
Right now I feel like an RPG character in a video game. No matter what, I need to fight the final boss, but victory hinges on how much experience I have at the endgame. How do I get experience? Fighting! Lots of fighting! Or, in this case, lots of drawing.
Nes from Earthbound – Yeah, I kinda feel like this guy!
Right now think I’m at the required level to beat the boss (the thesis), but I want to go and level up until I’m strong enough to beat the pants off of it! I want to max out my experience, find the best gear, and get the ultimate weapon!
I’m inspired by Spider Man’s words when he has to free himself from the rubble that’s keeping him pinned down: “Anyone can win a fight, when the odds are easy! It’s when the going’s tough, when there seems to be no chance, that’s when it counts!” I agree completely! I could probably still graduate even if Capek isn’t finished, but I choose to push push farther than ever before and get it DONE! I can do it, I know I can!
And now, my friends:
