Have been working on some more stuff for Goodman’s DCC (looking forward to that stuff getting released so I can go public with it), a cover painting for AFG by Tjoscanth/Paolo (finished but have one tiny thing to fix; hopefully will post tommorow) plus the job hunt and some other things.  Waiting in the wings is another private commission and a few more Black & White illustrations for Barrowmaze 2.

Someone asked, “How do you post updates if you are so busy?”  Three things:

  1.  I sometimes write a post just to relax, last thing in the evening or with morning coffee, and then schedule it to ‘post’ at sometime in the future.  I don’t want them all to post at the same time because I fear that my pearls of wisdom will be lost in the flood of wonderful posts that you have all come to expect from Aldeboran.
  2. There seems to be a delay in when I post something versus when it shows up on your blogger reader or whatever other feed you use.  Sometimes that delay can be hours or days.  Most other bloggers maintain a list of links to other blogs they like; I don’t know how it works or how long it takes for my blog’s new post to show up on other blogger’s ‘links of interest,’ but I am under the impression that most of the traffic on this blog comes from that source. So when you see a new post from me, it might already be hours old.
  3. I like to write as a way of thinking about stuff (I also like to draw as a way of thinking about stuff). Sometimes it is just a way of ‘musing,’ like me wondering, “What would a man’s head on a cat’s body look like?”  I sit down to draw it to answer that question (answer: it looks a lot like a manticore without wings or tail spikes).  What I write (or draw) may not represent my ‘last thought’ on any given matter (including serious stuff).  It is all a work in progress for me.  But if I change my mind, I try to remember to update or post a retraction.
