Like a lot of you, come the arrival of a new year, I've sat down, thunked hard, made a list of resolutions, then proudly let them rip in a volley of verve and determination.
And like a lot of you, i give 'em up on January 2nd.
I even failed in a resolution to NEVER make any resolutions, so this time I'm keeping it realistic; I'm not gonna try and learn to play the piano(i CAN actually do the theme from Jaws
), or build a Victorian folly at the bottom of the garden, or A-Z my comic book collection, or go the gym, or got to bed early, or read more books, or drink less whisky.
All i aim to do, promise to do, swear to do - is DRAW more comic strips. Did a lot of drawing in 2007, but not near enuff drawings in little boxes that tell a story. So far it's looking good - in less than 3 weeks - I've secured a coupla tasty comic strip gigs, and there's promise of more to come.
I'll share the details, soon.
Other than that, i VOW to sort out the piles of crap/junk/stuff that fills every inch of our home. We don't have room to swing a cat(or in our case, a very small dog), or more importantly, the room for any new crap/junk/stuff...
First to go; a shitload of VHS tapes, but some of the cover art I'm keeping.
This is why...
