2020 lack of vision

something forgotten

Drew up another one of the September strips -- I like panels 1, 3, 5 and 8, but overall I feel the format and style are getting tired, or I'm getting tired of it. I feel a lot like I did at the end of Minute Steaks, as if I'm putting a lot of time and effort into something that's really not particularly good any more, (if it ever was). I'm probably just being sulky, but maybe it is time I moved off and started on TPBOSS, which now has about ten pages of rough script, a certain amount of emotional investment, and some pretty wild hopes invested in it. Or maybe I could do something transitional, like SFBL which will allow me to muck about with the layout a bit but stick to single pages -- which is realistic, if I want to carry on being weekly. Or maybe I should slog on in the same format till I hit 100, as I just went passed 75 and it's a shame to stop at an unround number. (Damian gets a preview of this; "but we're just building up brand recognition!")

That'd be
Damn' Mosquito
then.

Bloody hell. I just realised I've been shovelling mud since March. No wonder I'm feeling a bit grim.

The BBC website wants to know if the Turner Prize is rubbish or relevant. Hahahahahahaha. I'm not telling.

Found this cut-up generator link through a writers' community. Now I advocate using a carnky old typewriter, glue and scissors, a bottle of vodka, and frequent complaints in a gravelly voice as the wrong bits stick to your fingers, but there's a very nice picture of Wild Bill Burroughs on it, and it does do the job faster.
