Another day in the life of a Free-Range Bookmaker. How efficient have I been today? Um... let's see.
I woke up... I got dressed... and then I start in whittling away at the day's efficiency.
I draw, I write, I write, I draw... I design... I re-draw... I re-write.. I re-design. Re-writing is enjoyable and highly unpredictable. I do take occasional breaks to regret... and re-regret. Usually something vaguely to do with my career choice and time passing.
Lately I've drawn the 1904 World's Fair, the Flatiron Building, the Ferris Wheel from the World's Fair, a 1903 fire truck in action... umpteen barrels, dogs, picket fences, tools, workbenches... and various assorted other things.
Also I've listened to hours & hours of jackhammering outside my window... which really has a cumulative effect as they've been jackhammering on my street all summer! The throbbing of diesel engines is neverending around here lately!
I've decided its fun to be a free-range bookmaker... as opposed to being the caged variety. I mean, why not enjoy it while I can? It's not like anyone's getting rich over it or anyone's gonna remember anything in a year.
This is vaguely similar to deciding that you're going 'off' your diet... and are now free to indulge in any food you like!
They'll get me back in a cage soon enough, so why not enjoy being Free-Range while I can?
It's more fun that way!
