So here’s what it comes down to… the GWAVAMan comic book for Brainshare has to go to the printers on Friday. The schedule I concocted gave me until a week from Friday.
I’m done with the layout, and can finish the inking tonight if I push. The cover is already done. Photoshopping and assembling the remaining three pages (it’s a single-fold promotional comic, geared towards getting people to visit a dozen different vendors in the BrainShare Solutions Lab) is by far the largest of the remaining tasks, because this thing needs to be SHINY.
The only hitch here is that I need to color a week’s worth of Schlock Mercenary on Saturday. If I can finish GWAVAMan on time, that won’t pose a problem. If I slip until Monday (no point sending things to the printer on Saturday or Sunday) there’s 3 hours of additional work on my plate Saturday, and my weekend is a working one.
Still, the crack of the whip feels kind of good. At least, right NOW it does. I need to quit writing about it, and draw some pictures…
