I’ve decided to ink the lettering, but that decision was just made 5 minutes ago so I have no updates for that project. The kickstarter failed so they’re going to launch a new one. I plan on waiting to release the fully inked project around that time so that I can promote it. As an offshoot of Creative Spaces TV, where I heard the Jeremy Cowart quote, I’m tempted to make some handlettering fan art…but I’m officially am back burnering that idea right now. I have Shiny Object Syndrome, thus, I have more important projects I must work on. Should I magically finish all the ones I have going on I will come back to that idea. I always want to do everything at once which results in getting nothing done at all. Must not fall into another burnout from overload of too many projects!
Below are a few quick sketches from my notebook for the title sequence project. I have plans tomorrow for a brainstorm with a friend so I can figure out more items. I need to get a move on this, falling behind according to my schedule. I need to start animating soon or I won’t finish on time!
I’m using this blog as a brainstorming session for the title sequence project. Bare with my strange style for the moment. I have screenshots of Man Seeking Woman. In the captions I’m writing ideas of what I could illustrate in this section. It’s still general at this point, but I want a plan for the story it’s illustrating. It’ll help me come up with relevant ideas. I hopefully will be able to get some vectors started tomorrow night that go along with this theme.
(1) Focus on a “writer”
(2) Writing tools like pencils, journals, desk lamps and opening your computer. Happy stuff from the beginning of the writing process.
(3) Hand with pen or arms reaching out to type, but a hand cramp or spilling coffee.
(4) Week of writer’s block and everything that can go wrong in preventing you from writing starts.
(5) Crumpled paper with angry writer’s block type of characters running around.
(6) More allusions to the stress of writing a story. Maybe heavy eyes or writing scribbles and failure to finish.
(7) Broken lamp or pencils with a coffee spill.
(8) A combination of good and bad things having to do with stories can go here.
(9) Hand touches the computer and it shuts down with a “fail” sign.
(10) Some redemption for the writer with crazy icons based on simple things like a shower or eating?
(11) The name is pulled out of a typewriter and laid down on a pile
(12) Last frame is of a book falling or flopping down maybe? Title appears with full National Novel Writing Month there.
