There must be some kind of way out of here

I would pay good money for a holiday like this. I am so tired...

Monday again. Next week is Cartoon Forum week. When I have to go somewhere or do something, I go through some very predictable stages every time and, right now, I'm at the stage where I'd really rather not go anywhere and would far rather be at home. I spent so many years digging this rut I'm in that it seems a shame to leave it, even temporarily. And going somewhere, especially where airports are involved, seems so much like hard work.

It's going to be a busy week at work preparing for this trip, which is always difficult when it's something you don't care a damn about.

This week, there is a piece of news I'm waiting for on a project that could make or break it. That, I care about. I also care about getting a little pitch document ready which I'm going to keep with me at the Forum in case I get talking to anyone interesting, broadcasters or whoever.

I had a dream last night that I had made a My Medicated Cartoon Life graphic novel based on me getting a show off the ground. It was funny but had waaaay too many pages. It would have taken me something like 5 years to actually make in reality. Oh and the fact that I could sum up my life in a small leaflet would probably mean it would be full of padding. Padding isn't good.

Oh, I was informed in the comments that my blog is being reposted on another blog (and, sure enough, it is), so if you're not reading this at or then why not pop over to one of those and read it at the source?

Hope everyone has a good week. Or at least survives the week. Oh, and a huge congrats to Jeaux Janovsky who is having his Box Assassin Hitman published in Giant Robot magazine. There is something about Jeaux's work I adore and this is great news so pop over to his blog and send him a congratulations.
