I'm not terribly social on purpose despite me getting up on stage on the regular and going to conventions and all that. Introverted extrovert? Is that a thing? So plugging in to listen to some dope tracks while grinding away in the office is sort of my default mode. But it's also fucking weird to get DMs from someone who's within arm's reach.

I mean, most of the time I'm working all alone here by myself. But on the rare occasions when I get into the office, I maybe plug in too soon. Ah well. And now I'm thinking about how cool it would be to have a cartooning coworking spot somewhere so I'd have fellow cartoonists to commiserate with! Yo, anyone in MD have a spot, hit me up!

BODIE

Whoa, easy there, tiger.

Whu?

BODIE

It?s your first day and I know you want to hit the ground running and all.


But it?s too soon to block everything out and just tunnel in to your work. We haven?t even talked about what you?re going to be doing with us.

ALLY

We don?t really plug in unless it?s crunch time. Not really a policy or anything. Actually, I don?t think we?ve ever talked about policies or anything like that. But it?s just weird dm?ing someone sitting right next to you.


SHIN

Yeah. I guess. I guess that is really weird, isn?t it.

====


ALLY

Sounds like this is something you?ve experienced?


SHIN

The last place I worked at. Now that I think back on it, they were weird.

====


SHIN

They insisted on blasting this white noise crap through speakers in the ceiling. Something about concentration or productivity or some crap someone went to a seminar for.

SHINE

I had to plug in as soon as I stepped in the door just to keep my thoughts in my brain meats.

KANE

WHITE?NOISE?


ALLY

SERENITY NOW! SERENITY NOW!!!

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
