When being creative, it can be useful to erect a wall between you—the you that is creating and working—and the outside world. This week, I’ve been notably absent from the interwebs. Maybe I could have posted a note on the pixelated door.
“Working creatively, be back soon”
In any case, there’s been loads to produce in a compressed month of May. Next week, I head to Phoenix Comicon. The summer schedule is jam-packed with projects and a major creative getaway (the biggest summer vacation I’ve had since I was a kid), so I’ve been preparing and planning.
Sent the Macho: Slim Jim limited edition to Austin Books. And yes, I took out the trash, went running, took my son swimming, and fed the dogs.
You may need to build a wall around your Creative Control Center once in a while. It’s more figurative that a real masonry wall, but it can be equally effective in shielding your attention.
