Starting Work Again


Ah well, the holidays are most definitely over, so this week I've started to get stuck in.

One of the first things on the agenda is tweaking a few of my roughs for the Baby Goes Baaaa! project that I'm working on with Egmont Children's Books. I need to get motoring on it, as ideally the artwork needs to be finished by the end of next month, before the main school-visits season in March.


However, while I'm
waiting for the specific details from the Art Director, I've been doing that dread task: the annual accounts. At least I already did half of it a while ago, so it's not been as bad as it might be.


Actually, this sounds a bit sad but, though the thought of ordering and entering all those receipts is a bit intimidating, once I get going, I almost enjoy the repetitive, mundane nature of the task. I have the satisfaction of getting a job done, but there's no pressure to be clever, or creative, or witty, or original. Yep - definitely a saddo.

Back to all that clever-clever stuff next week...

BIG congrats on the book! But *groan* all my receipts are in a shoe box (still, eek!), I am super envious of your organised plastic walletedness!
