JUST FOCUS

I will not admit how long it took me to focus and finish this comic. I’ve been eating a LOT of cake.

Until next time,

ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE

The Nexus of the Universe drawing converted to fabric (thank you Vista Print) arrived yesterday and is now hanging in the store.

A close up look at the wall.
View from mid way to the wall.
View from the counter area to the wall.

So if you ever are having doubts about sharing your art with others, then just enlarge it and stick it on a wall in a public place. You’ll get over yourself pretty quick.

And here’s this years Pamo Christmas card (first one I’ve made since 2015?):

When I drew the card, I wondered if I should put masks on the characters to commemorate 2020 but quickly threw out that idea. That’s not really my style (commenting on current events outside my own internal world).

I’ve written and deleted too much now. Just gonna hit the publish button and stop already.

Until next time,

NEXUS OF THE UNIVERSE

Jeff calls our new store location in South Clinton the “NEXUS” of the universe.

Recently he asked me to make a banner for inside the store. So I drew the above image on my iPad in the Procreate app and am having it transferred to fabric.

Once it’s arrived and hung up in the store I’ll post another picture.

It’s been fun and a little difficult getting back my drawing chops. I am enjoying the process. Drawing is a lot like exercising… once you get back into the habit- you realize how it makes you feel better.

Until next time,

Pamo

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

I have a stuckedness problem. I do creative stuff, get stuck, then move on to something else. This “giving up” then creates a slog of anti-creative glue that just completely gums up creative thought.

So today- I’m posting some of my unfinished stuff in an attempt to blow out the clog and quit whatever it is that keeps me stuck. Meh- we’ll see.

Last year, I attempted to revamp Pamo’s World comic. I got this far:

I never finished coloring the second panel. I did write out the conclusion to this set up but felt deflated when I realized I had done something very similar in 2016 (that I never finished). Here that is:

I allowed myself to feel defeated when I realized I keep going through the same slog. Now I’m like… who cares?!!! That’s what the creative process is all about.

Then in January of this year, I did this comic:

I did another few comics after that which I haven’t finished. I’m going to give it a go at finishing those and posting them before 2020 ends. If I don’t finish them- I’ll post them anyway in an ongoing attempt to de-gum.

DE-GUM DE-GUM DE-GUM
