Update: This post is behaving oddly for some reason. Illustrations aren’t displaying correctly. I’ll figure it out later, but there should be 4 illustrations below. I’m assuming it’s just too awesome / sexy for WordPress to handle.
A few months ago, I caught up to my content buffer. I think some of you guys that run your own blogs know what I’m talking about, but if not, just think of the buffer as a type of content safety net. Without this net I’m forced to work on smaller projects, which I really like doing, but I also really really really want to find time to work on the longer projects for Second Lunch that I’ve been putting off. And sometimes I just want to watch a ton of TV (Community, anyone?), and play videogames, and read books, and hangout with my friends. I want to do all of that stuff I just said and still be able to give you guys something to look at or read every Monday. So, for this week, I’m going back into my way back machine again and I’m pulling out some illustrations pre-Second Lunch. I’m doing this in hopes of being able to rebuild a decent content buffer and not have to worry so much about getting content out there. So I’ll show you some old stuff this week so I can work on some new stuff for the coming weeks, ok?
Anyway, about the old stuff. I started drawing birds last year to try and figure out a way to cartoonize (ok, spell check is saying ‘cartoonize’ isn’t a word, but the sheer fact that Who Framed Roger Rabbit exists, makes me want to scream ‘BS’) them to my style and I ended up with these things below that are supposedly birds? I don’t know. I think they look more like penguins. Well this all somehow turned into a few sarcastic greeting card thingy-ma-jigs pictured below.
One last thing, I’m interested in what you guys have to say about content buffers. Do you just write and publish? or do you have a stockpile of content just waiting to be unleashed onto the blogosphere?
