As we get into the final days before our deadline (what we in the biz call “siege conditions”), my studio-mates and I have been daydreaming about the other jobs we could potentially hold.
Max: I wish I could just be a nightclub promoter…or maybe an avant-garde jazz musician.
Lawrence: Sometimes I think I could own a little bookshop on a boardwalk. But then I’m like, how impractical is that? Your books would be horribly damaged!
As for me, I’m ready to embrace any career that lets me take a break from InDesign for a while. I’ve spent the last few weeks working on this:
This is Peep Show 2011, a calendar edited by Nomi Kane and myself. It features 12 of the talented female cartoonists at CCS drawing pin-ups of each other in all our nerdy, artsy glory. They’re full-color, $7 including shipping, and tons of fun (if I do say so myself)! Email me if you’d like to reserve a copy (or copies, if you’re feeling decadent!), or come pick one up in person if you’re coming to PIX! We all worked really hard on this (my contributions included drawing the lovely Colleen Frakes and the front cover, plus designing and laying out the interior), so I highly recommend checking it out. :)
All right…it’s back to work for me, so I’ll catch you guys on Monday!
