graylight gallery

A strange thing happened on saturday night. I’ve been working on the last chapter of Graylight over the last two or-so weeks, but I got stunted because I couldn’t figure out what I wanted on the very last spread. I’d been focusing on the three main characters. Which ones to show and in what context? I was about to panic when I decided to let it go for a while and just be silly with my colleagues (yes, i spend saturday nights at the studio. bars? clubs? i don’t know what these things are) when i finally KNEW how to do it! Of course I’d been focusing on the wrong thing and the wrong characters. So I finished it. Does this happen to you? You let your brain grind to no end and with no result only to come up with a great solution the minute you relax. So easy to say, yet so hard to implement. Now to colour the last 20 pages + do the cover. I’m going to start on the cover tomorrow… Crazy. In the meantime, here’s our players.

This is the week from hell, by the way. I may have gotten in too deep when i decided to organize an art show with 13 people exhibiting and 100 or so visitors (on sunday). Better go get that wine&candy. Guh… Wish me luck!

  1. I always feel like this. If I am struggling with an idea, the more I think about it the less likely I am to solve it. I can sit staring at the page for hours and come up with nothing, but as soon as I’m mowing the lawn or bullying the jukebox at a bar the answer will suddenly appear.
