I got four small painting done this week for the Anthrocon/Trinoc art shows.

I have three weeks remaining to Anthrocon.

At four paintings a week, that would be sixteen small paintings, which would be more than I would have room for/hope to sell.

I should not worry about the fact that I am completely blanking on more small originals, therefore, because I've done plenty this week, and next week I will doubtless have plenty more ideas.

....and yet, far down in that hollow cavern under my breastbone, the one that fills with the sensation of thousands of small screaming animals clawing their way to the top of the heap when I suffer the anxiety of doing my taxes or filling out student loan paperwork, or smell a Con on the horizon--far down in the bottom, heretofore empty, a lone tiny animal just trudged into view. It is a vague, nondescript, rounded little animal, a colorless hamsterish Anxiety Creature, eyes squeezed tightly shut, with stubby limbs and tiny, scratchy little claws.

And it just screamed.

The pre-con panic begins.

Hey, there, boys and girls!

Since Digger is up for a few WCCA nominations, and Graphic Smash wants to give the people voting a chance to read the comic without having to get a subscription, so that they'd be more likely to vote for it, if you hustle over to http://www.graphicsmash.com/toc.php?name=digger for a limited time only (i.e. a week or two) you can actually read the archives free. It won't last long, mind you, but it's worth checking out, if you've been wanting to and haven't had a chance!

And if you enjoy it, consider subscribing later! Or purchasing the print collection, which should come out next month from Sofawolf, and which will feature an exclusive story about the sculptor of the statue of Ganesh, as well as being, y'know, a seriously snazzy thing all around, which you can read in the bathroom or on the plane.

Edit: Also, while you're on Graphic Smash, "The Tenth Life of Pishio the Cat" is also free, and definitely worth checking out for people who like the animal comics. *grin*
