October 31th, 2017 – 1:50am PST:
There’s a spark, at first. Just a spark.
Sometimes, that spark finds purchase.
Great ideas are the same, they’re intoxicating and addictive. It’s Halloween, and despite the fact that it’s 1:50am, I would still LOVE to stay up even later and slather that comic with garish, nightmare colors of every stripe. I would love to give Death a better portrayal: scarier, but with a sardonic cast to his ancient features.
Alas… the human body has it’s limits, and staying up even later would only culminate in a *particularly* long and tortuous Tuesday. I would, undoubtedly, stumble about from one work assignment to the next, cursing my own disregard for sleep, while simultaneously exalting in the blissful twilight of a piece of art I forged alone, with my own two hands.
You can’t put a price on that kind of contentment.
Still, there’s something to be said for a good night’s sleep. As opposed to, you know, feeling like you’ve been clinging to the hood of a moving semi the last 24 hours.
Happy Halloween! 😀
