Happy post: Better than a whiny post!



As most of you know by now, I have been admitted to the sequential art masters program at the Savannah College of Art and Design! It has been one great emotional high since the news reached me. Now starts a new chapter in my life, and it couldn't come soon enough!

When I got home from DC, I completely crashed. TOO MUCH DAY! Now begins the next step of nailing everything down, finding myself an apartment and looking at what this means for Precocious.

For the comic, one this is clear. The updating schedule *will* be scaled back when things get intense. I don't plan on doing it for the immediate future, but know it's coming. I hope I can still pull off a solid update schedule through school, because I fully expect to absorb the AMAZING creative energy that comes from DOING WHAT I LOVE FOR A REASON! I am going to school so I can become the BEST CARTOONIST EVER and that means more Precocious love, not less. Even when I'm not doing Precocious, I will probably be doing other side comics for your consumption. (This blog might turn into a journal comic for all I know.) We'll have to wait and see. So don't worry! Think of it this way: My GRADES (and scholarship) depends on me being a kickass cartoonist, so I have even more reasons to kick cartooning's ass!

Today is for coming down from my celebration. Tomorrow I bring the Max sketches for my latest commission. (Commissions are very important this summer, as grad school is extremely expensive and I need all the cash I can get.) Monday I hope to have progress on my Dionne/Autumn painting. It's time to get back to work.

Thanks to everyone for their great energy and support!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! ...again. :-) I knew you were up to it. It was just a matter of hanging on 'til you got past the dweebs in admin. ;-) I'm not sure Precocious could possibly be improved, but it sounds like you do think so. I'm looking forward to the results from your time at SCAD!

I can see it now;
A giant mural on the wall of the school depicting precocious in all its glory!

FIFTY FEET HIGH!! MANY PEOPLE DIED IN THE CREATION OF THE MONUMENT! CAN BE SEEN FROM SEVERAL BLOCKS AWAY!

Other than that, great news!
