Blah

Ive been reading and sleeping and eating and drawing. I havent had an English conversation with someone since Monday. My futon has been moved into the living room, and my roommate moved out. I wrote some blog entries at home, but then I got sick of the idea of talking about myself, so I cant manage to bring them to the internet cafe. I get sad when I think about my dying sketchblog, but then Im happy because I know my comic book is taking shape. Very, very, slowly.

EDIT 2007.12.27
I added the posts I wrote at home.

There's no feeling like the finished comic feeling. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

I bet the hardest part about being in a foreign country is indeed not being able to talk in your mother language for a long time.

I bet your comic will drop like a bomb! (I forgot whether or not this proverb is praising something or not, but read that as a praise.)

What, is that hard to get quality heroin over there? Oh well, Happy Christmas!

I was going to say something uplifting and cheery but can't think of something! I hate Japanese food too. I hate being in a place where I can't read the signs, where it's impossible to understand anything and where everyone is shorter than me and dark haired. I don't volunteer for the Japanese trips that I should be taking, I send someone else!@
There - are you cheered up?

ElizT said...

Cheers from me as well.

The "Frozen Peas" update reads like something by Paul Auster (slowly drifting away from the real world, OH GOD!), and I really laughed at the shower story in the other.

"something-something-blah-blah-kudasai"
is really quote-worthy. How come japanese homes have speaking household appliances?

Also, good luck on your creative crisis. My tip would be to just let it go completely for a while (don´t even think about it if that´s possible) and after a week or two you´ll be back at it. Or maybe not. Some people go through that for years and years, but I guess you´re not one of them.

Also, not having the right work surroundings for drawing really is a big hindrance.

I hate that shitty Japanese food, too. I loved your line - no matter what I buy I can taste Japan in it. Don't get me started on the Italian (Itarian) food. What a scam.
