post-vacation breakdown


We spent most of last week on vacation in Minneapolis which means that the week prior to vacation Chris worked almost non-stop. It also means that this week he will work non-stop and be lucky to grab two or three hours of sleep a night. Hence, this lunch note.

Being a freelance artist definitely comes with a wealth of benefits but one serious drawback is that it becomes nearly impossible to take a vacation. Or at least plan one. This was our first non-comics related trip EVER in our almost seven years together. And it may very well be another seven years before we take another because I really hate watching Chris push himself so hard. So if you see Chris this week, be nice. He's working even harder than usual.

Sarena - I know you feel my pain! I hope you guys get a chance to take a vacation one of these days. Also, 15th anniversary??? Did you guys get married when you were 12?

Alan - Thanks!
