Digital Island Project: Week 4 & 5

Double feature

Alright so there was really nothing much going on in Weeks 4 and 5. I finally finished that sequel of the Onion Method, which I owed for like, a whole year.

Then I wrote some more Alexander Comic stuff, but that’s not a thing I want to discuss openly atm. Regardless of my past transparency about my process, especially the development of this book, I am feeling more precious? sacred? about Alexander. So I am gonna be all ~secrety~ about it, till I finish the first full draft of the script.

Some more big boys to get the hang of Alexander.

Anyway, the government announced another extension of the lockdown. Which means… my residency isn’t officially happening this year!! This is really it. This is the last of my travel plans for 2020 that fell to the dust. What a year it’s been! I remember writing in my several notebooks late in 2019 about my enthusiasm for the Travelling and Wandering and Exploring I had planned to do this year. Guess I am still doing that… within the four walls of my home.

But yeah. A short update this time. Till next time.

I got this boba tea flavoured ice cream today.... gonna try it tonight and see how it is

somewhere along the line, the call for diverse characters in publishing mutated into "don't be diverse or you'll do it wrong and the straw man browns will cancel us all" and it all stems from not having poc people in higher-up positions

After many lockdown-related delays I am finally doing my in-the-middle-of-a-rainforest arts residency!! (it’s local) Not for fun though: I have three GNs at different stages with looming deadlines πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

If the academia plan doesn't work out I'm taking my material culture interests to the cookie industry.
