Boy I tell you, it’s been a while since my wrist was this sore. The other day I finished doodling a 28-page comic as a gift for my girlfriend. I think it’s pretty rad but I wish I’d given myself more than just a week to do it in! But now it’s all done with a single one-of-a-kind copy being reproduced into printer spreads and stitched. Don’t be too impressed, it was done in a rushed panic on a colour photocopier. It’s unlikely to be worth millions of dollars by any avid comic collectors.
As this post gets published, I’ll be loaded up with camping gear and on my way to Salt Spring Island. Just like last year — except with a tad more restraint — I’ve gone overboard with gear preparations. New tarp, new multi-day pack, new this, new that. What can I say, I’m a gear guy. I don’t mind packing in a bit of extra weight if I’m going to use it and enjoy it. Like the hammock. And the bocce balls. And this, and that… actually, we’ll see what makes the final cut into the backpack.
And with that!
